One of the Best Ways to… Sell Theatre Tickets Online


You’re putting on the best show since Grease and you need to sell theatre tickets online in the best way possible. So when you’re considering given a huge chunk of your revenue to ticketing agencies, consider how much you can save with Ticket Tailor.

On average, you could end up paying a whopping £270 to sell 300 tickets at £10 each through a ticket agency*. With Ticket Tailor, you would only pay a simple subscription from £9/month.

So why give away more than you have to?

In addition, easy-to-read graphs make it effortless to keep track of all your sales. Every customer is sent an automatic e-ticket with a unique, six digit numerical code. This is then added to your doorlist along with the customer name, postcode and any tickets they have ordered – a list which you can export to use for admission on the night.  You can also add barcodes to your e-tickets and use our super quick barcode-scanning software to get your customers through the door.

To make life even easier, there is an interactive seating plan built into Ticket Tailor which we customise for the layout of your theatre – complete with optional discount codes.

Theatre gurus WEST SUSSEX OPERA and FUSION DANCE TROUPE think the Ticket Tailor system is great.

Laura Houston, Director at FUSION DANCE TROUPE, enjoyed her experience with Ticket Tailor too:

"The service was easy to set up and I could customise the seating plan so that it matched online and then I released a date to announce the ticket sale which in itself raised so much awareness of the event and then had to simply do nothing.  The system stored all information for me and all I needed to do was activate it on the day I wanted and then print out a simple listing of tickets bought for the event and customers had to just bring their e-ticket confirmation on the day.  I will definitely be using them again this year and for any other events we plan to hold."
