With our friendly user interface, you can edit the price, dates when tickets can be purchased and a maximum available quantity (if any), for each ticket type, or across the whole event.
Next on the Forms tab you can collect information for the ticket sales such as Child’s Name, Class, Allergies, Emergency Contact details etc. We have pre-built form templates that you can use.
