Section 1: From here you can enter the event name, customize the slug (the url for your event page), set a banner and a square image, and add a description of your event.
Visibility sets who can see your event once you create it:
- “Public” means everyone can see it and it’s listed on our site
- “Visible to Buyers Only or Sellers Only” means that only buyers on our site or sellers in your network can see the event respectively
- “Hidden” keeps the event off of all listings until you change it.
With categories, you can tag your event so it can be found easily. Tagging allows you to set your event to show up in any of the featured categories on Showpass – simply type in the name of a category and press enter.
Section 2: Here you'll set the location and time of your event. If you’ve already added the correct location, simply select it from the dropdown. If it’s a new location, you’ll need to add it by inputting the name and address of the venue. The Start and End time of your event are also set here, along with the time zone your event is in. This defaults to the time zone you’re creating the event from, but can be changed if needed.
Section 3: This is where you create the types of tickets you want to sell, along with the inventory levels, price, and visibility. Typical options here are Early Bird, Advance Tickets, and General Admission. "Tiers" with increasing pricing are also often used. The gearbox on the right allows you to set on sale times for each individual ticket type, and add descriptions of them as well.
Section 4: This option allows you to enable or disable the Social Share feature. If this is turned on, buyers will have the option to share that they are attending your event on Facebook so their networks can see, in order to receive a small discount specified by you, the organizer. If left off then no such option appears during checkout.
Section 5: Here you can set a password for your event, list any legal terms or restrictions, and set up a custom message when tickets are sold out under “No ticket types message”.
