Have an event coming up and want to sell tickets on your Squarespace site? No problem!
Squarespace makes it easy to collect payments for events and sell tickets all in one place. In this article, we’ll show you how to set up an event and start selling tickets on your Squarespace site.
Creating an event is simple with Squarespace. First, you need to go to the “Schedule” section of your Pages and take note of the details such as event name, date, and time frame for the upcoming event that you want to offer.
Now, go back to the main dashboard and click on the “Scheduling” option on the left.
Scroll down and click on “Payment Settings” where you can set up the payment currency, payment terms, and payment processors to connect.
Once done, click on the “Appointment types” option from the left menu.
The next step is to select “Types” and click on the “New Type of Group Class” option.
From there, you can enter the name of the event, duration, and price, and set up the accessibility (public or private) and the maximum number of attendees.
Once done, click on “Create Appointment Type”.
Once created, click on the “Offer class” option, and input the date and time, then select the “Save class” button.
The next step is to go to the “Scheduling Page Link” option on the left menu. Select the event you set up earlier, then go to “Direct link” and click on “Copy”.
Now, go back to the Schedule page and select the “Upcoming events” tab. Click the event that you would like to offer, then select the “Edit” button at the top.
Scroll down and click on the blue plus sign at the bottom where you want to add your booking form.
In the pop-up window, type in “scheduling”, then select the scheduling option from the results.
In the scheduling window, select the “Custom link” option, then paste the link you copied earlier to the “Acuity Scheduling Page Link” section.
Your event now has an option for buying tickets! It’s time to start selling tickets!
Squarespace offers a few different ways to sell tickets for your event. You can use a third-party ticketing service like Eventbrite or Ticketmaster, or you can sell tickets directly through Squarespace. Selling tickets directly through Squarespace is a great option if you don’t want to use a third-party ticketing service, or if you want to keep all of your event information in one place.
Now that your tickets are all set up and ready to go, it’s time to start promoting your event! You can promote your event by sharing the link on social media, adding a widget or banner to your website, or sending out emails to your list. Whatever marketing channels you use, make sure to include a link to your event so people can easily buy tickets.
Selling tickets for your event on Squarespace is a quick and easy way to collect payments and promote your event all in one place. With just a few clicks, you can have everything set up and ready to go!
