This section allows you to create, edit, publish, unpublish or delete tickets for events held at your venue. If you are selling more than 12 ticket types or want to offer different types of tickets for several events, we recommend organising the tickets in Categories. Your account must be set up to display categories. Please contact us if you would like to use categories.
The One Tree support team can assist in setting up a range of tickets, but this is simple to do yourself and you are also able to edit tickets if a similar event (with changes to times and dates) is offered in future. When tickets are marked as Published, they will appear on your web shop. If they are Unpublished, they do not appear, but they remain in your account. Unpublish tickets that you do not want to sell currently but may wish to use again in future. Tickets can be deleted if they are no longer needed. The sales data relating to deleted tickets will remain available in the system. Unpublished tickets are not visible for manual sales.
The tickets are displayed on your web shop in the same order as they appear in the portal. To change the order, hover the cursor over the arrow in the bottom right-hand corner of the ticket type and drag it to its new position. This new order will be immediately displayed on your web shop.
The order the tickets are displayed on your website is important. You may want to add new tickets or group tickets for similar events close together.
Incomplete tickets cannot be published. E.g. an image must be added before publishing.
The price does not display on the ticket unless you add it within the copy.
It is recommended that you display the copy in sentences. The information describes what is included in simple terms and makes the ticket easy to use. This will prevent misunderstandings on either side.
The sales page displays a list of individual tickets sold.
To view the total number of tickets sold for an event:
- Click on Manage tickets
- Click Edit on the relevant ticket
- The total number of tickets sold is displayed at the top of the page
- Click on Download guest list button to see a CSV of customer data
Create a new ticket
From the Manage tickets page:
- Click Create new button.
Maximum per order shows the number of tickets you would like any one customer to be able to buy in one transaction. The default is 100 and the number can be amended. Please note that if it is set to 1, a customer can only buy one ticket for an event in one transaction which is likely to reduce sales. The purchaser would need to start the buying process again to buy more tickets for that event.
Quantity is the total number of tickets you wish to sell for this event. If it is set to a low number and those sell out, a new amount can be added to this field. When all the tickets available for an event have been sold, the web display shows ‘Sold Out’. Note that the total amount of tickets made available should represent the maximum capacity for an event. This may be split between adult and children’s tickets for example.
Publish and Unpublish dates can be added. Entering dates in these boxes (click on the calendar icon) automatically publishes and unpublishes the ticket from your online ticket shop. The ticket will be published or unpublished at 00.01 on the date entered. Therefore, if an event is taking place on 02/02/2022, and you wish to sell tickets throughout that day, enter 03/02/2022, to ensure that the ticket is available up to the time the event takes place. If these dates are left blank, the tickets can be manually published and unpublished at any time.
Sale price. Enter the selling price including VAT.
- The ticket name should include details such as whether it is an adult or child’s ticket. (If relevant.)
- The ticket image is the image that displays on the web shop. Add a suitable graphic or picture that represents the ticket. A graphic which ties in with your sales promotions could be used. Images can be cropped to the right size by dragging the handles in the image editor. For best results add a jpg measuring 256 x 192 px. Images that are smaller than this may not load.
- Ticket header. A universal header can be added to the ticket template, in which case it will be used for all tickets. However, if you wish to tailor the header for a or specific event, a customised header can be added here. Upload the image from a pc. The header is a jpg measuring 1300 px by 326 px. Images can be cropped if required by dragging the handles in the image editor.
- The date(s) can be added in any format desired. It is displayed on the ticket.
The description field allows you to enter details of your venue and information on what is included. This is a free-form text box, and the following might be included:
- Start and finish times
- Brief description of a performer or display
- Outline of food or drink/paid bar facilities
- Availability of vegetarian options
- Dress code
On saving, please check the ticket for spelling or grammatical errors.
- Important information provides a field to highlight specific conditions relating to this ticket. E.g. How or when to book, whether booking is essential or not required, whether there are age restrictions. If the ticket can be used flexibly over a certain period, this can also be specified. (This copy can also be added to the main body if preferred.) General terms and conditions for the use of the ticket appear at the bottom of each ticket, so do not need to be added separately. See Ticket template for further information.
