Community Tickets affiliate links

  • | Permalink

    Hi there,

    I’m keen to know if this plugin allows our event organisers to generate their own affiliate links so they can see how much commission to pay their ticket sellers? If this is not a current feature will this be built in or can you build this in as bespoke at all?

    Also, which member plugins work with this feature?

    Hi there,

    Thanks for reaching out. I’d be happy to help with your question.

    I’m not sure if I completely understand what you’re asking. There is no functionality to generate affiliate links.

    We did have a feature called “split payments” that allowed organizers to get a percentage of the ticket sales as they were made. However, Paypal discontinued allowing new accounts for this, so it only works for legacy users.

    We are working on something similar that would allow you charge organizers up front and set up payments to them from the ticket sales. Unfortunately, this is still a ways off from being available.

    Hope that helps!

    Regards,
    Sky

    Hi there Sky,

    I’ll give you more context 🙂

    We currently use the Pro EventCalendar and also the Filter Bar on this site and page:
    https://www.nonchalantlondon.com/lesbian-events/

    I’d like to know the below things:
    – What WordPress member plugins work along side the Community Events and Community Tickets plugins?
    – Do you offer a service to do bespoke development for a site?

    What I’m looking to do for our site is firstly create a members accounts (so readers can have an account, we don’t have this functionality yet) – I’m looking at other plugins for this but I’d like to know what plugins work with yours first?

    I’d then like users to be able to add their own events and manage their own events. I’d like them to be able to sell tickets through the site and we are take a cut.

    From the above I’d like the users to be able to create their own affiliate link options for their events. As a lot of my readers that run events ask people to sell their tickets for them and they will pay people money per ticket they sell. Is this something you can create for us?

    Many thanks,

    Abi

    Hi again,

    We usually recommend the Members plugin https://wordpress.org/plugins/members/.

    Our plugins don’t have any special integration features for these types of plugins. You would need to figure out how to integrate the functionality you require.

    We do not offer site development services for smaller projects.

    As I mentioned, we are working on ways to improve managing organizer payments. But currently, you would need to collect all of the money and manually take your cut and pay out the organizers.

    Thanks,
    Sky
