Which products do I need?

  • | Permalink

    Hi there,
    You have so many different products, and I’d love some help trying to figure out exactly what I need.

    My client is an e-sports gaming club. They will have all sorts of tournaments and meet-ups. They’ll need to sell tickets and provide an easy way for ticket purchasers to present their tickets upon arrival.

    We want to be able to display their 3 most recent events on the home page, and then again on their main Events page.

    I assume we would need Events Calendar PRO…but which ticket product is best? I was looking at Eventbrite Tickets, but is there somewhere on your site that shows a comparison between all of the ticket product options?

    Thank you! šŸ™‚

    Hi, Stefani.Ā Thanks for your interest in our plugin suite.

    Eventbrite TicketsĀ is for people who want to run events/ticketing on Eventbrite’s site butĀ display those tickets on their WordPress site.

    An alternative is to useĀ Event Tickets Plus (ET+), our paid add-on plugin that upgrades the functionality of our free Event Tickets (ET) plugin.

    Event Tickets Plus enables you to sell tickets via one of our supported eCommerce platforms. The free plugin only enables free RSVP-type tickets.

    You can view our roundup/comparison of all the eCommerce plugins ET+ supports.

    Our plugin uses your eCommerce plugin of choice, but your eCommerce plugin isn’t displayed for shopping pages. Please reference our Making Tickets KB article (screenshots are from an install using WooCommerce) for an idea how to create tickets for an event.

    Site visitors would purchase tickets from each event’s single page/view (e.g. http://wpshindig.com/event/events-tickets-demo/) — if there is an RSVP to submit or ticket to purchase.

    The order confirmation email will include a QR code that can be scanned to “check in” someone at the door at the time of the event. It could be displayed on their mobile device or they could print it like any other email. You can read more atĀ Tickets: Managing your orders and attendees.

    You could also Display a List of Attendee’s Events.

    If your tickets will be free, you don’t need QR code check-in, and you donā€™t need to collect additional information other than name and email address, you likely could just use the free/core Event Tickets plugin.

    For displaying events around your site, you could use one of our plugin’s widgets or shortcodes (most require theĀ Events Calendar PROĀ upgrade).

    Bonus:Ā Filter BarĀ is a sweet addition to any site.

    Last but not least, we have Bundles and a pretty great Refund Policy so you can buy one or many of our add-ons and thoroughly test them.

    I hope this info helps. Let me know if you have any follow-up questions.

    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!
