Take advantage of the Purplepass retail outlet network to allow your guests to purchase tickets in person at physical locations throughout the country
Since our retail outlet network setup is extremely simple, we routinely setup new outlet locations for clients who already have some local shops in mind to sell tickets. As the event organizer, you can authorize specifically which outlets are allowed to sell tickets, set the max fees they can charge to the customers, and even limit the number of tickets they can sell. All sales are recorded in real time in your reporting and you can even have real-time alerts sent to your email or phone when sales are made. For a customer, they can walk into a retail outlet, receive a ticket that is printed on-the-fly from the outlet, and pay via cash or credit.
Advanced Pricing Rules
With advanced pricing rules, you can auto-trigger price changes based on the number of tickets sold or a specified date, whichever comes first. For example, let’s say you want to start selling tickets at $25 until the first 100 sell or until the 1st of next month. The system will automatically update all of your prices for you. A common use of this feature is to sell discounted tickets prior to the event and then on the day of the event, automatically increase the price for online and door sales.
Ability To Control Who Pays
You have complete control over who pays for what. By default the customers will pay all fees, but you can choose to fully absorb fees or even split it up and let the customer pay a portion and you pay the rest.
Custom Facility Fees And Tax Rates By Ticket Option
You can set custom fees and taxes on a per-item basis. For example, you can sell admission tickets without sales tax but for your merchandise, add the appropriate sales tax.
Ability to fully hide fees
If you are choosing to absorb all fees or if the event is free and no fees are being charged, sometimes it’s nice to completely hide any reference to fees. This is particularly useful for Volunteer registration or other things where any reference to fees is not only unnecessary, but possibly confusing to the guest.
If you are in an area that requires you to charge sales tax on event tickets, or if you are selling merchandise or other taxable items, you have the ability to identify the tax rate and have the system add this as a separate fee when checking out.
If your venue requires a per-head facility fee or if you just want to add a little something on top, you can choose to add a facility fee which will be added to the total fees paid by the customer. You even have the option to show the facility fee separately or combine it into the Purplepass service fee. All facility fees go directly to you.
