Daily deals for my event

Updated: Aug 06, 2013


  • Configure your event to work with vouchers from sites like Groupon or LivingSocial
  • Use a custom question to collect voucher numbers
 
Note

Note: Event organisers sometimes set up their Eventbrite event page to take registrations from people who purchased a voucher on a site like Groupon, LivingSocial, or HomeRun. Typically, organisers collect voucher codes from attendees using a custom question at checkout. See below for a look at how to set things up!

1

To get started, first sign up for a free Eventbrite account or log in to your existing Eventbrite account and create an event.

If you’d like to edit an already-created event, click My Events at the top of the screen and then click on Edit to the right of your event’s name.

2

In Step 2: Create Tickets on your Event Details page, click the Free button to the right of Add a Ticket to begin creating your free ticket.

Create a Ticket Name that indicates to the attendee they will use their voucher code when registering for this ticket type. An example is "Using a Voucher." Once you've named your ticket type, input the Ticket Quantity for this ticket type and leave the Ticket Price set to 0.00.

3

Then, click Make Event Live or Save in the upper right. Now click Manage in the upper left.

On the Manage page, select Customise Order Form, found near the top of the features menu on the left side of the page.

4

Choose the option to Collect information below for each attendee.

Next create a custom survey question by clicking Create a Question under Your Questions

5

Input your question in the Question field. This can be something along the lines of "Please enter your voucher number here." Then, designate the Question Type to be a Text.

6

Under Optional Settings, check the box to the left of Show this question for specific ticket types and check the box to the left of “Using a Voucher” to show this question only for the voucher ticket type you created.

If you have more than one ticket type, you can select which tickets to apply the custom question(s) to. (You can learn more about creating ticket type-specific custom questions here.)

Be sure to click Save to save your changes!

7

On the next screen, select that this question be Required. Remember to click Save Changes once you're finished.

8

Before your event, you can compare the number of “Use a Voucher” tickets that have been “sold” or redeemed in Eventbrite with the number of deals or vouchers that you sold on the outside “daily deal” website to make sure that these two numbers sync.

If you’d like further details, you can run an Attendee Summary report and export it to Excel. The Attendee Summary report will include the answers to all of the custom questions you asked your attendees, including the voucher numbers they redeemed. You can then cross reference the voucher numbers collected on Eventbrite with the numbers provided by the “daily deal” site.
