As an organiser of events, you will likely want to have a variety of tickets available for your visitors. An example of this could be ‘Early Bird’-tickets and all the variants thereof. Group tickets are another instance of this, where you can lure more people through your event’s doors by offering group tickets with a (small) discount. In this guide, you will learn how to create group tickets for your visitors.
How do I create group tickets?
Birds of a feather buy tickets together!
1. Go to your ‘Dashboard’, click on ‘Manage’ on the left and select ‘Events’.
2. You will see a list of all your events. All you have to do now is select the event you would like to create group tickets for; this can be done by clicking on ‘Manage’ beside the specific event.
3. On the left of your screen, you will see five icons, one of which is a ticket (second from above). By clicking on this icon you will be redirected to a page where you will be presented with an overview of your tickets.
4. Whilst on this page you will be able to create new tickets - by clicking on ‘New ticket’ in the top-right corner - or you can edit an existing ticket by clicking ‘Edit’ beside the ticket’s name.
Essentially, a group ticket is a batch of individual tickets sold in a set. It is up to you to decide how many tickets you want to sell in a set - for our example we will assume you want a group ticket for five people.
5. Whilst creating or editing a new ticket you can allow yourself to sell tickets in sets by clicking on ‘More options’ and toggling on both the ‘For sale in increments of’ and ‘Minimum number of tickets per order’ functions.
6. Make sure to give your ticket a clear name and description so the visitors of your ticket shop know they are purchasing a group ticket. You will also want to set the price of your ticket to the same as your standard ticket price, in this case, let’s say the tickets are €20,- each, then all you need to do is set the ticket value to €20,-. You might also choose to set the value slightly lower as an incentive for your visitors to buy group tickets and bring their friends.
7. The next step is to decide how many tickets you want to sell in a set - we are using five in this example, but feel free to take any value you think will work for your event - this can be done by entering the value into the field ‘For sale in increments of’.
8. Make sure that you enter the exact same value into the field for ‘Minimum number of tickets per order’, this ensures that customers cannot subtract individual tickets from the group ticket and no mistakes are made.
