You can also format the text using the Rich Text Format settings, such as making text centre-aligned, or bolding key points.
Note: This section does not support emojis. Be aware when copying and pasting your awesome event summaries from social media sites that trying to include emojis will produce an error.
- Link to Facebook – Check the Link to Facebook box at the end of the Event Options section if you wish to link your event to Facebook. This will allow attendees to see information about your Facebook page and event when they view your ticketing site.In the first box, enter the end of your Facebook page’s URL. In the second box, enter the number at the end of your Facebook event’s URL.
After you’ve added all of the other details for your event, it’s time to create your tickets. You can use the Event Wizard to add multiple Ticket Types, including Free tickets, Paid tickets, and also set up an option for attendees to make a Donation during ticket purchase.
3. Select your first ticket type and fill in Ticket Details.
- + FREE – Creates a ticket with no charge.
- + PAID – Creates a paid ticket.
- + DONATION – Adds an optional donation to your ticketing form. You can set up pre-determined donation amounts or leave the price as 0.00 to allow customers to enter their own donation amount.
Once you select a ticket type, a drop-down will appear allowing you to enter ticket details including the Ticket Name, Quantity Available, Price.
Edit settings for each ticket type by clicking the settings symbol (see below). This allows you to enter a longer description for your ticket types, alter sales dates, and restrict the number of tickets allowed per order.

- “Pass INTIX ticket fees on” – The INTIX fees will be charged to attendees on top of the ticket price, and will not impact your ticket revenue
