You run COMMUNITY EVENTS, you need a free online booking platform that simplifies all the associated administration.
Community events are wonderful, they bring people together and give a sense of place. They also involve a lot of work, including managing attendances. We can enable you to sell tickets online so that you know how many aim to attend. This facilitates proper planning and helps avoid too few or too many attendees.
10 important things to know about our Community Event Ticketing
#1: Rapid-set up: We can set up your online event ticketing, rapidly. Simple tickets with all admission types, validity dates, and capacity controls can be online and for sale within 60 minutes; complex calendar and time slot ticketing within a few hours.
#2: No technology requirements – it just happens: All tickets are set up on our systems and then seamlessly integrated with yours for an excellent customer booking experience. There is no requirement for any advanced technical changes to your website, we simply provide you with a unique link to your tickets that seamlessly integrates your website and the tickets.
#3: Sell on your website or social media websites and/or our consumer websites: You can sell your tickets on your website or social media platforms and/or on our consumer websites. Your tickets can be booked wherever the link to the tickets we provide you with is used e.g. your website, the community website etc
#4: Your Event, Destination, or Community Branding: The entire customer booking journey can feature your event, destination or community branding and your messaging – customised to every event ticket. The on-screen messaging, the email and the ticket the customer receives instantly online can feature all the event details you wish them to have.
#5: No investment cost, no 'lock-in' contracts: Unlike many other providers, there are no investment costs and no 'lock-in' time contracts (unless at your request). We are happy to work on the basis that you value our services.
#6: Simple for Customers: Customer bookings are simple to make on all desktop and mobile devices. The customer buys your event tickets online and gets their PDF tickets instantly both on-screen and by email. They can either print and present their ticket at your event or display it on their phone or tablet. There are a number of ways to check and redeem tickets. We can provide lists of attendees to check-off, and a means to scan, check and cancel printed tickets and tickets displayed on mobile devices.
#7: Secure Bookings: We use SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) for transaction security, and we use Stripe as our payment processor. Stripe is a world leader in secure payment processing and is used by millions of businesses around the world from Amazon and Booking.com to UNICEF and Oxfam. Stripe is certified to PCI Level 1, the highest level of certification available. Using Stripe enables us to securely process bookings from customers using any major credit and debit card.
#8: Real-Time Reports: You will have access to your own real-time online report that will enable you to see both summary and detailed booking updates on your event – how well it’s booking for any date or time slot and the associated revenue. This provides you with beneficial information. It signals, for example, whether or not you need to increase your promotional activity to achieve your targeted attendance numbers. It also provides you with crucial information on how many you can expect and by the type of admissions you are selling tickets for e.g. adults, seniors, students, children, toddlers etc. This allows you to staff appropriately and to gear up to provide any catering or other services for these numbers.
#9: Fast Payment. We collect all ticket payments, and we pay immediately the event is over. We also provide detailed payment reports.
#10: Creative Ticketing: If you can think of a ticket type, we can almost certainly set it up.
A community events page featuring multi-events, free?
We can also provide you with a free events page that seamlessly integrates with your community website, and can be branded appropriately. It enables the community to present all bookable local events in one place - and simplifies the bookings process for the organisers using it and the attendees. It really simplifies everything and reduces event administration.
