We are now heavy into the fall season and as you have been going to corn mazes, fall festivals, and pumpkin patches, we have been carving out features just for you!We felt like the last few months we gave love to RegFox, RedPodium, and GivingFuel so this season we focused on TicketSpice. But not to worry, we still have something for the other products as well.[embed]https://webconnex.wistia.com/medias/ikxalkfiw9[/embed]
If you are selling tickets by time-slot, you can now do so in a much easier way! Whether you’re using our multi-day event setup or our recurring event set up, you can now add time-slots to your page to sell tickets.
You can enter the days your event is happening on, add the time-slots, create the ticket types, and voila! Ticket buyers can now easily select the date, times, and ticket types they want to come to your event.
The Reserved Seating functionality in our TicketSpice product has been in beta for the past several months. We listened to your feedback and we’ve implemented some amazing new looks and functionality to make the seat purchasing experience that much smoother for your attendees.New functions include:
Reserved Seating is still in beta but with these updates, we are that much closer to publicly releasing it.
Our ambassador program was such a hit in our Redpodium and RegFox products that we decided to bring it on over to TicketSpice! With the Ambassador program, you’re able to incentivize your attendees to invite their friends -- and get money back for every ticket they sign up! You can designate a dollar amount per ticket type to allow for a bigger reward for more expensive tickets and maybe no reward for free type tickets. Time to fire up your promotion by turning your attendees into marketers.
Another great functionality that has done well in our registration products has also been brought into TicketSpice: Ticket Transfers! With a transfer, your attendees can allow a friend to take any or all of their tickets. They simply invite their friend to take over the tickets, and when the friend pays and completes their order, the original registrant gets a refund… minus any transfer fees. If you have a sold out event or a no refund policy, this allows you to offer a way for your attendees to get a refund by transferring their spot to someone else without you losing any money.
It may feel like we gave all the love to TicketSpice but here is a feature we built for the other products! Registrants and Donors can now notate if their payment is on behalf of an organization. When a donor or registrant checks “I am representing an organization” in the billing section of the form, the organization name entered will track with the transaction throughout reporting.
For non-profits this is huge! Now you don’t have to wonder if Bob donated as himself or on behalf of an organization. End of the Year statements will separate out donations made on behalf of the organization.As the year winds down, we are only ramping up! As our team grows, we’re able to release some amazing features and design updates that will help you add to your events. Be on the lookout for new things in our next project update! As always, if you have any questions or concerns, there is a tempting little button in the bottom right-hand corner of your campaign that will lead you to a warehouse full of helpful articles to browse, as well as a way to message one of our delightful humans on support.Now go enjoy some pumpkin treats!
