Ticket Builder

  1. Select whether ticket tiers will appear on your event page from lowest to highest or highest to lowest amount.
  2. Click “Add More Ticket Details” if you’d like to:
  • Add a ticket description to appear alongside the ticket tier on your page, set sale dates for each ticket tier,
  • Create group and table tickets
  • Designate a portion of each ticket as tax deductible.
  • Set a date range during which the ticket will be on sale. This feature is useful for offering discounts and specials like Early Bird sales.
  • (Optional) Collect additional information from donors.

Additional Questions and Thank You Message

  1. To collect additional information from donors, simply toggle the "Show/Hide" switch next to the field options(Company name, phone number, address, and custom) to ask the purchaser for that information after checkout.
  1. Checking the "Required” box will prompt the purchaser to answer that question before checkout is complete. We recommend only requiring questions essential to your event to reduce friction during the checkout process.
  2. Click “Save”.
  3. Write a Thank You message. This message will be sent automatically to attendees immediately after they purchase a ticket. Click “Add an additional message” under each Ticket Name to set up Thank You messages for attendees who buy a specific type of ticket.
