Create Event Tickets as Items
Tickets are represented as items. Once created, tickets will appear in your item list.
A ticket item is an item with the its type set to For Sale and the Admission Tickets Included field on the item set to at least 1.
A ticket can represent either a single admission, or multiple admissions. An example of multiple admissions might be a table for 8 guests.
You can create a ticket item through the normal Add Item page. There is a dedicated page, accessible from the Tickets Dashboard, that will ensure the settings are initialized correctly.
Click on Tickets in the menu, then click on Add New Ticket Item under the Actions menu.
The Add Ticket Item page is very similar to the Add Item page.
The important fields to define are:
- Title - how the ticket item will be listed on the web site, e.g.: Early Bird Ticket.
- Value - the price you want to sell the ticket at.
- Admission Tickets Included - the number of guest admissions this ticket represents.
- Quantity - the maximum number of tickets to sell. Leave this blank (or set to 0) for an unlimited number.
You can also assign a "meaningful" item# for the ticket item, e.g. EARLYBIRD. This may make the ticket item easier to work with than a system generated/assigned number (the default option).
Click Create Ticket Item to create the ticket item.
