You can create as many different ticket types as you like, depending on who will be coming to your event. Some of the most popular categories are Adult / Child, General  and Early Bird.

To set up different ticket types:

  • Click on the event you want to create tickets for in the list of your events

  • If your event isn't pending then it will open in the Event Summary page. You need to click on the Edit Event link. If your event is pending you can skip this step.

  • Scroll down to the tickets section where you can add new ticket types. You can either copy an existing ticket type or create a new one.  To copy an existing ticket type, click on the 'Copy' button from the Action column.
This will open up a page where the ticket settings are pre-filled based on the ticket type you clicked the Copy button from. You can then change the ticket name to avoid duplicate tickets and confusion.
  • Another way is to click on Add Another Ticket . 

Note: For events with multiple sessions, should you wish to create a new ticket across all sessions, tick the box below. This option will only become available from your second session onward.

Single Ticket
A single ticket is 1 ticket per person. With this option the booking fee is calculated per ticket.

Group Ticket
A group ticket issues a group of tickets for a set price. The group size is the number of tickets that will be issued with each single purchase of this ticket type. With this option the booking fee is calculated on the  total cost of the Group ticket, not per individual ticket within the group. This reduces the booking fee amount.

Single Reserved Seating

This ticket type is used if you would like ticket purchasers to reserve a specific seat in your seating plan. Only reserved seats ticket types can be used on a seating plan. 

Open Group Ticket
An Open Group Ticket allows a buyer to select the quantity of tickets they would like to purchase within the minimum (8) and maximum (set by you) parameters. The benefit of this ticket type is that it greatly reduces the booking fee paid. The booking fee for a Group ticket is calculated on the total amount and not per individual ticket within the group

Group Reserved Seating (new ticket name)

This ticket type is used if you would like purchasers to reserve a specific number of seats in your seating plan. i.e. A Group Reserved seating of 7 will require the purchaser to select 7 seats when buying tickets. Your ticket price for a group ticket should be for the total of all the tickets in the group, so for our example of 7 tickets at $20 each,  the price to enter is $140. 
Only reserved seats ticket types can be used on a seating plan. 

Free Ticket
Use a free ticket for free events (registration only). With this option there are no booking fees.

Our donation ticket allows you to receive donations of any amount for your cause. With this option the booking fee is calculated on the donated amount.

Ticket Name
Enter a description for your ticket. e.g. "Single Entry" or "Adult" or "VIP entry"

This is the cost of the ticket.

The default setting is to Include the booking fee in the price of the ticket.We will deduct our booking fee from the price you entered above. Alternatively you can uncheck this and we will add our booking fee to the price you entered above. Click here to see our booking fee calculator (scroll down page). 

If your organiser settings are set to registered for GST, you will need to add the GST component into your ticket price. For more details on organiser settings click here

See example scenario below:

- if you create a single ticket at $20.00, the booking fee on this ticket will be $1.50 for each ticket purchased
- if you create bundles (group tickets) e.g 10 x $20.00  a group ticket at $200 the booking fee will be $5.50 (the ticket purchaser would save $6 in booking fees if they were to buy 10 x single $20.00 tickets) A group ticket of 10 will still issue 10 tickets.

Ticket Capacity
This is the number of tickets that are available for this ticket type. Click here for an explanation of the difference between tickets available and event capacity. 

For group ticket types the 'tickets available' number should be the total of individual tickets available. Example: for 8 tables x 10 of seats, please enter 80 in this field, representing how many individual tickets are available.
