How to sell tickets on Squarespace using Ticket Tailor?

Ticket Tailor is a great option for selling tickets on your Squarespace website. You can simply set up all your event details on Ticket Tailor and then embed your ticketing widget in to your Squarespace site like so:

1) Decide where where you want to add the booking widget

For this demo I've created a page called "Buy tickets" which is where I'll add the booking widget but you can add it anywhere you want.

2) Edit the content area and click on the grey handle where you want your ticket booking widget to appear

 3) Click on the code option and it will invite you to add in some code

Once you have clicked the code button a popup will appear with the heading "EDIT CODE". This is pre-filled with "<p>Hello, World!</p>" and this is what we want to replace with our Ticket Tailor widget code.
