Reference: Tickets

Tickets items in Auctria are specially configured For Sale Items that have an admission quantity set and will be used either for admission to an (in-person) event or, optionally, as a means to restrict bidding in the auction catalogs.

Tickets items sold through the Event Website (or manually using the Sell Tickets dashboard function) will trigger the full Registration/Checkout process and create a participant record for the purchaser as part of that process. Tickets are tied directly to Reference: Participants and Participant Record creation.

Auctria can track your ticket sales and provide E-Tickets to guests. This will allow them, for example, to pre-register Reference: Credit Cards and update their contact information before the event.
