New Feature Announcement: Auto-hiding Tickets

When you’re planning an event, you’ve got your hands full and time is precious. The last thing you want to do is to have to login to put tickets on and off sale. That’s why we’ve introduced our new time-saving feature: Auto-hiding tickets.

You can now “Auto-hide” tickets based on three options:

1. Hide until a set date and time
2. Hide after a set date and time
3. Hide when the tickets are sold out

Synchronise your ticket buyers with MailChimp

Whether it’s sending a reminder about the upcoming show or promoting the upcoming calendar of events, keeping in touch with ticket buyers is an important part of every event organisers job.

MailChimp is a great email marketing tool that’s used by many event organisers. It enables you to design and send out email campaigns to your mailing lists.

Sell tickets directly from your website

Great news! We’ve just introduced website widgets that allow you to sell tickets online direct from your website. The customer can go through the checkout process without leaving you site, and all you need to set it up is  a couple of lines of code.

See the example below:

Sell tickets for charity events – 30% Discount

Because of our low, predictable monthly pricing, we are helping many charities sell tickets online. And now we are pleased to announce we are offering 30% off our prices for charities.

This means if you are running a charity event you can sell your tickets for just £10.50 + vat per month (30% off the usual £15). And there are no contracts or hidden service fees, just pay for when you are selling.

Now live: Sell tickets online with Stripe

Update: Our Stipe integration is now live.

We are excited to announce that we will soon enable you to sell tickets using the Stripe payment system in addition or instead of PayPal.

If you haven’t heard of Stripe, it’s a new way for you to collect money online. Here are the headlines:

New Feature: Seating Plans

UPDATE 2016: We currently can’t support interactive seating plans.

For some events, seating is key. It’s important that if you run events whereby customers need to purchase specific seats, these customers are able to do so quickly and easily. That’s where Ticket Tailor’s new seating plan feature comes in. With this neat addition to our service, your customers can now choose exactly which seats they wish to purchase tickets for – complete with an aerial map of your venue.
