Using EC with Woocommerce to sell places at a Training course

  • | Permalink

    Hi there

    We aim to sell physical training courses via Woocommerce & hopefully one of your products

    Each product (training course) takes a fixed number of days (not necessarily sequential).
    Each product is available for booking at several times of the year simultaneously.

    As an example:

    Product A runs for 4 sequential mondays (and then starts again a month later)
    Product B runs saturday and sunday only for 3 weekends then starts again 2 weeks later
    Product C runs monday to friday and then a wednesday the following week. It restarts 3 months later.

    Which, if any, of your products would be best to allocate a non-sequential date range to each woocommerce product (course) and allow simultaneous non-sequential date ranges.

    Many thanks

    Hi Mark,

    Thanks for checking out our plugins!

    Event Tickets Plus lets you sell tickets to events on your site, and it does integrate with WooCommerce.

    To add tickets to events that span multiple non-consecutive dates, I think your best bet may be to use the recurring events feature that comes wth Events Calendar Pro. This way, you could create an event that recurs on all of the days you need it to, and the tickets added to the event will apply to the entire series, not any one particular date. It is actually currently not possible to add separate tickets to individual dates in a recurring event series, so please note that tickets will apply to the series as a whole. We’re working on adding support for recurring tickets for a future release, and if this is a feature you’re interested in, please do cast your vote for the feature request so that you can stay up to date on progress for this feature!

    So if you went this route, you would need to create one series for each product (or set of dates that you wanted to sell tickets together for).

    If you’d like to test it out and make sure it will work the way you want it to, we do offer full refunds within 30 days of purchase, so feel free to do so! Please let me know if you have any other questions.

    Thanks,

    Jennifer

    Two more questions:

    Does the two plug-in combination above send a .pdf (or similar) invoice to the customer on purchasing a ticket to the event – or does this require an additional plug-in(s)?

    Similarly on event purchase, does that combo allow to send other files to the purchaser eg a word document containing further information?

    Many thanks

    Hi Mark,

    WooCommerce sends an order confirmation email for each purchase, and Event Tickets Plus sends out a separate email with the actual tickets in it.

    There is not an option by default to add files to the ticket email, but you could do this with a customization. If you did go with Events Calendar Pro as well, you could use the additional fields feature to include a link to the document you wanted to attach (as well as any other information you wanted to include) and then display those fields in the ticket email – see this post for an example.

    If this is something you’d like to see added in a future version, please let us know over in our Feature Ideas Forum! This is what we use to gauge user interest in new features and help guide future development efforts.

    Thanks,

    Jennifer

    Hey there! This thread has been pretty quiet for the last three weeks, so we’re going to go ahead and close it to avoid confusion with other topics. If you’re still looking for help with this, please do open a new thread, reference this one and we’d be more than happy to continue the conversation over there.

    Thanks so much!
