Events+ Ticketing - is this an option for a music venue? Need professional level ticketing.

We are looking to build a professional ticketing site for a music venue. Will need to be able to issue both paid and free tickets. And the venue will need a fast and easy way to verify validity of tickets and redeem them.

Is this viable with Events+ ? Do we need it plus Marketplace?

Additional needs:
- way to track referred ticket sales (e.g. a concierge helps promote a show)
- use Braintree or other simple payment processing
- recreate recurring events (like a weekly show) without massive work

    Hey Dorian,

    Hope you're doing well today and thanks for your question!

    Is this viable with Events+ ? Do we need it plus Marketplace?

    Yes this is possible and yes you will need MarketPress as well, because with MarketPress you can offer additional payment gateways like Stripe, Braintree isn't supported at this time.

    - way to track referred ticket sales (e.g. a concierge helps promote a show)

    You should be able to integrate Affiliates with MarketPress, which allow you to track referred sales through affiliate URLs, or you can add an additional registration field to the events where you can ask the buyers to fill in who referred them :slight_smile:

    - recreate recurring events (like a weekly show) without massive work

    You can add multiple dates for each event. I have attached a screenshot to illustrate this.

    As for verifying validity, you can get them to bring in their confirmation email, or you can also export the RSVP list and make they are on it. Perhaps having this in a searchable excel sheet might be easiest.

    Hope this helps!

    Let me know if you have any further questions here.

    All the best,
    Tyler

    Hey Dorian,

    Apologies for the delay here! Thanks for your patience.

    Out of the box you wouldn't be able to. It only supports the plugins you see listed via the add-ons. Pro Sites, MarketPress, Membership, and Directory.

    We do have a short tutorial on custom integrations for Affiliates you can check out: https://premium.wpmudev.org/blog/integrating-the-affiliate-plugin-part-one/

    It would require some custom coding; perhaps something for the Job Board if you're wanting to hire a developer from the community to do it :slight_smile:

    Let me know if you have any further questions Dorian!

    Cheers,
    Tyler
