Ticketing is often seen as a relatively dull service and an unwanted necessity. Ticket Tailor aims to change this perception with a new rebrand that truly reflects the company and its enthusiasm for events.

Multiple box offices – One login

Just a quick update to say that we have just launched a new major feature: Multi box offices!

If you have multiple brands or venues that you sell tickets for then previously you would have had to have separate accounts with us in order to have a different box office for each. Now, you can have as many box offices as you like and just have one login. There’s a convenient box office switcher at the top right of the dashboard.

To create a new box office simply click on your box office name at the top right and click “Add a new box office”, enter a name, and it’s all done.

When editing an event you should now see a new option called ‘Allow customers to make a donation’. You can then set up a name of the donation and some extra text in case you need to say more about what they are donating for. When it’s all done you’ll have something that looks like this on your event page:
