Why the change?
The functionality of the EDD Tickets plugin isn’t going away – instead, we’re cranking it to eleven and rolling it into Event Tickets Plus (a premium add-on to our free Event Tickets plugin). With Event Tickets Plus, we’ve combined all our existing ecommerce functionality, plus added some awesome new features like QR codes and the flexibility to sell tickets to your events with or without The Events Calendar.
While we’re definitely sad to say goodbye to our legacy ticketing plugins, we’re excited that the transition to Event Tickets Plus will deliver greater flexibility and more functionality at the same price. The best part? If you already own an active license for EDD Tickets, you can make the transition for no additional cost.
Event Tickets Plus + Easy Digital Downloads
Swiss Army Knives can be great. The geek in me rejoices at all the options. But in reality, they are really uncomfortable to use if all you want is a bottle opener. Want to sell tickets, but don’t need all the bells and whistles? Event Tickets Plus replaces EDD Tickets as the tool for you. Easy Digital Downloads is the perfect WordPress e-commerce platform to sell tickets. The plugin is tailored to sell digital goods and doesn’t have 12 pages of unnecessary settings. If you are looking to add ticket sales directly to your website without all the crazy hoopla that comes with gargantuan e-commerce solutions, you have the right add-on. No third-party websites, no ticket fees…just you, your attendees and one kick ass event. Keep in mind that Easy Digital Downloads 1.8.3 or above is required to use Event Tickets Plus.
Event Tickets Plus allows you to add as many EDD tickets as you wish to a given event, and then sell those tickets entirely within your site. Each ticket can have its own price, stock, SKU and specified timeframe for when ticket sales open/close. Aiming to give discounts to those who buy earlier than a week before the event? Dreaming of checking people in at the door from your laptop? Need different ticket types your users can easily differentiate between? Easy Digital Downloads and Event Tickets Plus has you covered. It’s the little black dress of plugins. Simple and sexy.
Please note that at this time, Event Tickets Plus will NOT support tickets for recurring events. Please keep this in mind before making your purchase.
