This week we’re releasing the second part of our Eventbrite integration, allowing users to create events & sell tickets with the global registration platform Eventbrite from inside our app.
“During the event submission process, our users will now be given the option to create an Eventbrite listing page, manage ticketing, market the page to evvnt’s publisher network and, ultimately, sell tickets. This is done via the same simple UI used to Import events from Eventbrite, as launched back in December. The feature is currently being rolled out to all evvnt and Evenbrite customers, with support for evvnt’s partner network scheduled later in 2015.” Philip Lardi, Product Manager.
Feature Launch – Sell Tickets
Within the event submission form users will be asked to connect with an existing Eventbrite account.
Having been taken to Eventbrite to authenticate their account and evvnt’s use, once successfully connected two options will become available;
1. Import events. This allows existing Eventbrite events to be selected and the details imported to evvnt, for faster and more comprehensive submissions.
2. Enable ticketing. This pushes event details from evvnt to Eventbrite, creating a ticketing page and using the URL for submission to the evvnt publisher network.
For users that enable ticketing an Eventbrite page will be created to sell tickets for the users event. Enabling ticketing disables other functions.
With ticketing enabled users are required to provide additional information on their tickets – the quantity of tickets available. Additionally, tickets can only be sold in one currency.
With additional information provided, the app will proceed to create the Eventbrite ticketing page. This is highlighted to the user during the remaining stages of submission and once the event is confirmed by the user, the app will push the details to Eventbrite.
The app then collects the Eventbrite URL and adds it as the primary event URL, ready for broadcast to the evvnt publisher network.
The user event report will include a dedicated area to manage their ticketing pages per event, with the URL of the Eventbrite listing displayed.
This feature release creates a unique turnkey solution for event organisers, promoters and producers, combining the key elements of a premier ticketing and event marketing platform, and further outlines evvnt’s intentions to provide users with a platform to manage their event marketing journey.
