Website URL: The website URL is required for livestreaming the event if using the widget and embedding it directly on to your page or website. It is only needed if you are using the widget. The URL will be used for the shortcut “Play” buttons that are generated and sent in the confirmation email upon a purchase. If you choose not to use the widget or do not enter the URL where the widget is installed, the system with default to the Purplepass live stream page (Purplepass.com/Live). If not using the widget, leave this field blank. 

Creating live stream ticket types

What is a live stream widget?

Similar to ticket widgets, this widget type will act like a portal, giving guests the ability to access the video stream. The widget will be created and installed the same way the ticket widget is through the Purplepass’ admin. 

Use this widget to directly embed the streaming experience on to the event website and avoid any redirects or third-party sites.

When guests go to access the event, they will use the widget. Once they click on the widget, the system will ask them to enter their order number or email address for extra security measures. These extra steps are used to verify whether they have access to that event.
