Auto-Check In

The holy-grail of social media integration. Your guests can be given the option to have their tickets linked to their Facebook account. When they arrive at your event and their tickets are scanned in, they will be automatically checked in at your event on Facebook. On the day of your event, Facebook will be lighting up with checkins at your event! The ultimate free social marketing!

Share

You can give your guests the option to share with their friends and family that they purchased tickets to your event. Their Facebook post will have information about the event along with a link to buy tickets themselves.

Request/Require to Like

You can request or even require your guests to “Like” your Facebook page when they are purchasing tickets. They will be presented with an alert asking them to “Like” your page during their check out process. This is an amazing way to build your social media following quickly and automatically.

Custom Search Engine Description

(Control what’s shown on search engines)

Our special short search engine description option allows you to set exactly what will appear on the search engine’s search results when someone is looking for your event. This will allow you to ensure the right information is being shown to potential guests when they come across your search results.

Single codes

Single codes are discount/coupon codes that you create one by one – There is no limit on how many codes you can create.

Ability to restrict the number of times a code can be used

You can limit the number of times a code can be used. For example, you can restrict a code to only work 10 times. After it’s been used 10 times, it will no longer be valid for any future attempts.

Define how many tickets the code is valid for (min/max/exact)

You can define how many tickets the discount/coupon code will be valid for. An example would be a group discount code that is only valid if you purchase 10 or more tickets. Another example would be a $5 discount that is valid only up to 2 tickets. If the customer wanted to buy 3 tickets, they would receive the $5 discount for only 2 of the ticket and would have to pay full price for the 3rd ticket.

Auto-Generate Codes

Have the system automatically generate the discount/coupon codes for you. You can control exactly how the codes will look by choosing how many characters, any predefined characters (e.g. “Save” in “SaveXXXXXX”) and if the codes should include lower case, upper case, and/or numbers.

Mass Upload Codes

If you already have a list of codes, you can batch upload them directly into your event as discount/coupon codes

Create Coupon Lists

You can create a list of codes which can reused over and over as well as be attached to multiple events. A common use for this is if you have the same codes that you use for each event you organize. Rather than recreating all of your codes each time, you can simply create a list and attach this same list to all of your events.

Allow for one-time use codes across multiple events
You have the option of allowing codes to be assigned to multiple events but only useable one time. A great example of this is if you have a list of voucher codes that give someone a discount or even free tickets just one time to any of your events.  Since the same list is applied to all of your events, once the code is used one time on any event, it will no longer be useable on any of your other events

Fixed $ Discount per Ticket

Save $5 off per ticket

Fixed $ Discount per Order

Save $10 off your entire order

% Discount

Save 10% on your entire order

Combo Deals

Buy 1 get 1 free
Buy 2 get 1 at 50% off
Etc

 Tracking only codes for tracking sales

If you have other people promoting your event such as fighters for an MMA event or bands for a rock concert, you can issue tracking-only codes for each person. The codes will not provide any discount but can be used to track sales that came from them. This is a great way to manage a commission program for your affiliates and promoters.

Ability to stack multiple codes

You have the option of allowing certain codes to be stackable. What this means is multiple codes can be used at the same time. A great example of this would be if you offered voucher codes that are valid for free admission. A guest might be given 3 voucher codes valid for 3 free tickets. Rather than doing 3 separate orders, they can apply all 3 voucher codes at the same time and check out once.

Set start and end times for code validity

You can define when the discount/coupon codes will be valid. Let’s say you are doing a special holiday discount where the codes will only be valid for the first week of December. You can pre-program the exact date and time the codes will become valid and when it will expire.

Ability to auto-triggering codes

 

The auto-trigger option allows a code to be automatically applied when the criteria is met. A perfect example of this is if you are doing a group discount where the customer received 5% off if they purchase at least 10 tickets or they will receive 10% discount if they purchase at least 20 tickets. You can create two codes, set the options (e.g. 5% off minimum 10 and then another code for 10% off minimum 20) and set them both to auto-trigger. If a guest adds 12 tickets to the cart, they will automatically get the 5% discount. If they add 25 tickets to the cart, they will automatically get the 10% discount. This makes group ticketing and other special offers incredibly simple.

Guest List

Our built-in guest list system is an absolute win with all of our event organizers. You can electronically create and manage your guest list for your event.

You can enter their info, decide if they should get print-at-home tickets or be added to will call, and the system will email them notifying them they have been added on the guest list. IF you chose print-at-home, they will have their tickets attached. When it comes day of event, rather than going to the guest list window, you can do away with it and allow your guests to go directly to the entrance and scan right in as if they were paid tickets.

Of course you can create custom guestlist/COMP entrances, require people to do will call if they need to pick up credentials, etc. It’s completely up to you on how you want to run the guest list. Other features of the guest list include the ability to batch upload a list of guests and mass assign them. Guest list entries will appear within the box office, promoter management interface, and even accessible by the smartphone apps and professional gear.

Show Remaining Tickets To Instill Urgency As Tickets Are Selling Out

Sometimes letting guests know how many tickets are left will help them to realize they need to buy ASAP if the tickets are about to sell out

Ability To Require A Coupon Code

To Purchase a Ticket Type

If you are offering special priced tickets but they are only accessible to guests with a special code, you can make these ticket types available and require a code in order to purchase.

Ability to define advanced code requirements such as the minimum, maximum, or the exact number of codes needed per ticket type or per ticket purchased.
