Here we go! The exciting transition from bridging your event presentation into online registrations! Trust me, this is an easy process and you will be up and running quickly!
Most steps in the event set up process are so elementary that you should have no problem getting things set up quickly.
In the steps below, I will cover the steps from start to finish in basic detail. If you need extended details on any of the steps.
Step 1: Create an event name and choose your location time zone. Don't worry you can always change all details at anytime.
Step 2: Complete the rest of the Event Details section. Keep your event description short and your event waiver information short and sweet.
Step 3: Visual Content
You will want to create and upload a banner image for the top of your registration page. The banner image details are listed under the Upload New Banner Image section. Ideal image size is 705px wide(2.35 inches), 265px(.833 inches) to 425px tall(1.417 inches) & less than 4 MB. In other words, you will want to create a wide rectangular shape!
A few things to consider before we dive into this section? How many different tickets do you need for this event? What do you want the tickets listed as in the event? Price? Do you have a short description for more details? When do you want the tickets to go on sale and to stop selling?
If you have these answers then you will knock off the 1st section of this setup!
Dropping further down in this section:
Show this tickets option on the event page: Show - Hide
If you don't want your ticket visible on the registration page (maybe you want a ticket option hidden until you are ready to open it to the open, or want to hide early bird or late ticket options).
Show number of remaining tickets on the event page: Show - Hide
This section is simple enough! Do you want to show visitors how many tickets are still available? If not, make sure that "Hide" is your choice!
Custom fees: Do you need to add some add on fees to your event? This would be a good way to add that "park usage fee" or "post event clean up fee". Really anything that you want to add to the registration cost without it appearing to be part of the registration fee. This is a great way to let participants know about some of the outside costs that are involved with your event.
Item Included With A Ticket
These are free items that you are including with each ticket. This items may include shirts, socks, bananas or anything that you have in mind!
Optional Add On Items
Want to add extra items that people can add to their cart? This is the spot! Shirts, caps, socks for sale! Bus shuttle rides and massages! This is the area that you can list these optional items for sale.
A great way to promote early registration or a reward to those in the inside loop! Choose between a flat rate and a percentage on the discount type. Set up the discount amount and start and finish date. Finally choose which items to associate with the code and you have these codes ready for action!
Voucher codes are something special! This tool gives you the opportunity to create multiple codes that can be used a single time for a set discount. If you have ever worked with Groupon you may have experienced hundreds of vouchers set up for a business that can be redeemed for a discount. Using the Voucher Codes section you will be able to create you own codes or import a CSV file (from Groupon or any other system out there) that can easily be implemented and recorded when used.
Admin Service Charge Settings
This is the section when you can set a user fee for your registration platform. Do you want to absorb that fee or would you like to add a fee back to you user. Remember that all paid tickets have a fee taken out automatically from the Stripe credit card processing system (2.9% + $0.30 per transaction). If you do not charge a service fee than you will not receive the full ticket sale amount when the payments process into you account. We recommend passing a 8% fee to the purchaser. Of course you are the boss here so do what ever you want!
