Allow staff and VIP's to access tickets themselves. You can limit their access to a special priced or complimentary ticket, whilst allowing them to purchase additional tickets at the full price in one transaction.
This option allows you to streamline your workload/processing and gives them the benefit of knowing their group/family are all covered and they will be seated together.
This is achieved by:
- Adding a new ticket type with a limit
- A promotion code that applies to this ticket type only
Adding a new ticket type:
- From the left menu, click Dashboard
- In the Manage Events overview, select your event
- From the left menu, go to Pricing Group (ticket prices), under Ticketing
- Click into the pricing group listed
- Click Add ticket type, name the ticket so it relates to the group that the promotion is for and set the Amount to be the same as your highest priced ticket
- Save and close
By setting the Amount to be the same as the hightest priced ticket, there is no insentive for those who are not eligible for the discount to select this ticket option. It will also act as a safeguard should someone outside of the eligible group proceed with purchasing this ticket option.
Set a limit on ticket type:
- Click on the name of the ticket you have just added in
- Click on the Limits tab
- Using the Limit option drop-down menu, set the limit to per event
