Posting Different Event Types and Using the New Widgets (Beta)

Here are a few things to remember when using Purplepass Beta to post new events and/or manage current ones. 


Posting Events on Beta

To use beta, 

  1. Sign in or create an account on beta -

  2. Click “Create New Event” on beta

  3. When sharing your new event, remember to use your new beta link. Any event posted via beta will also be posted on


Note: Only new events created on beta will use the new seating system. 


For General Admission Events

You can use (old) and beta, interchangeably for general admission events.

Meaning, if events were originally posted on, you can also manage and sell on beta as well, using old or new widgets. 

However, if you wish to use the following new features, they can only be accessed by logging in via beta. 

  • Language support 

  • Color themes

  • SEO techniques 

  • Mobile friendly

  • Social distancing support

  • Pixel conversion tracking

  • Updated ticket widgets


For Assigned Seating Events

You will need to create a new event or the same event again on beta to apply the new seating system. 

The same seating map templates originally used on can also be used on beta. The map does not need to be rebuilt to be used on the new seating system. Purplepass seating map on beta
