Ticket sales on the Fundky Platform: how does it work?
This new feature allows you to offer multiple tickets for sale on your event page. Users simply click on the Buy Ticket button to select the ticket(s) they want. They can then complete the usual transaction process.
A confirmation email is then sent to users summarizing their order!
Tickets are very practical because they can help you pay for your event, for example.
How is an event different from a regular campaign?
There are a few differences between a regular donation campaign and an event on the Fundky Platform:
1- The look of the page
On a ticketed event page, the main button prompts users to purchase a ticket. The thermometer is also located under the banner rather than in the left column.
2- How it works
For a ticketed event, you can choose to keep a charitable aspect to your campaign (or not). For example, your tickets can include a donation amount and an advantage amount. You can also choose to sell tickets with 100% of the price being a donation; or inversely, you can choose to sell tickets with no donation amount at all.
In the case where your tickets do not include a donation portion, you can still offer the option for users to contribute using the DONATE button, which can also be seen on the event page. This is a great way to give people the opportunity to contribute without necessarily participating in your event.
3- Paid registration
Would you like buyers to have their own fundraising page too? If you want to allow people in your community to register for the event and have a page unique to their profile, it’s possible to link the ticket purchase to a registration.
On the Fundky Platform, we call this a “paid registration”. In this case, when a user purchases a ticket, a personal fundraising page will be created at the same time. You can also determine the registration parameters, i.e. whether the event allows for teams or only single participants.
How to create an event with ticket sales?
Simply create a campaign as you normally would, and indicate Yes to the Are you selling tickets? box. Your campaign will automatically be recognized as an event, and you can add and set up your tickets afterwards!
