You are organising such a great event and you want everyone to come. In order to come, one must pay their ticket. What if you could manage all these tickets digitally with only a few clicks? It’s no joke, but this is what you can do with Tickera and we find it pretty amazing.

Tickera is a WordPress plugin which takes care of the selling and the delivery of your tickets to the customers. It can be easily used directly from your website and it also has the option of fusioning with the well-known and most-used WooCommerce, resulting in what they call Bridge for WooCommerce. This gives you many features, from the possibility of creating tickets inside WooCommerce to the ability to design your tickets using the efficient drag & drop template builder.

The payment methods vary and you are given over one hundred payment gateways, such as 2checkout.com, Authorize.net, Braintree, PayGate, PayPal, Mollie, KOMOJU and many others. These help you process, verify, and accept or decline credit card transactions. In addition, right after purchasing a ticket, your costumers will get the standard WooCommerce “Order Completed” e-mail with the download link to your tickets. You will constantly be in touch with your customers and if you will feel you need to know more about them, you can use the Tickera Custom Forms and add whatever you want to find out besides name and e-mail. Check it out and tell us what you think!
