The beauty of WordPress lies in the fact that it can be used to build and setup virtually any genre of website. Apart from blogs and magazines, you can use WordPress to set up a restaurant website, a portfolio, and even a website for an event! With the help of specialized plugins and themes, you can easily track virtually every bit related to event management.
However, when it comes to selling tickets of your event via your website, most of the time, the go-to options include third party software and tools that often claim a part of the ticket revenue as commission.
This is where Tickera steps in: a rather simple WordPress event ticketing system, Tickera lets you sell tickets for your event and keep all of your revenue to yourself. Yes, zero commission involved!
In this post, I will introduce you to Tickera and all that it can do for your website.
Tickera: WordPress Event Ticketing System
Tickera is a simple WordPress plugin that lets you sell tickets on your website and deliver them to your buyers digitally. So basically, by using Tickera, you set up your own hosted solution for ticket sale and management: you decide the price, tax rates, and you get to keep full revenue with no commission cuts.
But there is more than just that. Here is what Tickera brings to the table:
- You can create virtually any type of event and tickets, and sell them as per your convenience.
- Tickera comes with its own smartphone apps and barcode scanning abilities, simply because this is the age of mobile devices. You can fully white-label Tickera’s mobile apps, and yes, both iOS and Android platforms are supported.
- Tickera supports over a 100 payment gateways, including PayPal, PayU, Authorize.net, 2CheckOut and a lot more! This is especially useful because on the basis of country restrictions, not every payment gateway might be suitable for everyone (for example, users in certain Asian countries would be better off with 2CO or PayU as compared to PayPal).
- Tickera supports multiple events, custom forms, custom ticket templates, and different API for payment gateways as well as discount codes.
- And before you ask, Tickera supports WordPress Multisite and is ready for translation too.
However, that is not all. Much like WooCommerce, Tickera too offers support for “addons”, that can extend the plugin’s functionality and help you do more with Tickera. For example, there are addons to connect Stripe as a payment mechanism, MailChimp for newsletters, SMSmail.com for text message notifications, etc.
Tickera has a very simple pricing structure, and there are just two plans on offer. The Business Plan costs $99, and offers 3 site licenses but no addons. The Developer Plan costs $149 and gives you unlimited site licenses plus 13+ addons. Both the plans do come with white-label mobile apps for Android and iOS devices, as well as one year of support and updates.
The best part about Tickera is that it just works seamlessly out of the box. You do not have to deal with code and edit anything. Once you install the plugin, you can just get started. If you need extra functionality, you can opt for addons.
Since Tickera works via WordPress, you obviously get access to the wonderful features that WordPress has to offer, including a big collection of free and premium themes that you can choose from!
By using a simple plugin such as Tickera, you can ensure that your ticket sales are not affected by any third party tool that takes a cut of the total revenue. Plus, Tickera works right within WordPress, which is the world’s most popular Content Management System, so you need not worry about compatibility issues either. Even a simple shared web hosting package can run a website on WordPress with Tickera.
