That's why we've pulled together a list of our 10 most popular features that'll help you make the most of our platform this year. They're guaranteed to save you time and money – and who doesn't want that?
So, here goes.
Transfer orders easily. Have you ever booked event tickets yourself, only to realise the date clashes with other plans? It happens. So we’ve made it easy for you, the event organiser, to transfer an order to another occurrence in your event series with one click. So easy you could (probably) do it one-handed up a ladder!

Auto-fill buyer details for quicker checkout with Stripe Link. Stripe Link is automatically applied to all accounts using Stripe as their payment processor. It allows people who make purchases using Stripe to save their details for faster checkout. This means when they’re buying your event tickets their payment info will auto-fill, creating a fast, seamless and secure checkout experience. A whopping 9x faster than non-Link customers to be exact!
