Updated Box Office Checkout

12:00 AM, Tuesday March. 7th we rolled out an updated checkout screen in our Box Office software. Here are the details: We've made some cool updates to our Box Office checkout screen. It's completely redesigned, with a slick summary of the ticket holder's info, payment method and cart. Additionally, we've added the functionality of ID Swiping, Buyer Notes, enhanced Buyer-Type Selecting and Text-Meassage Receipts. ID SWIPING This new feature allows you to swipe a buyer's drivers license to automatically enter a buyer's name and address to the purchase or it can instantly look up any tickets held on will-call under that buyer's name. Swiping IDs will save time by eliminating the process of typing names by hand, and it ensures the accuracy of your records. Also, when you get repeat customers who provide an ID for swiping, their info is brought up, including email addresses, phone numbers and notes!NOTES There is now a place under the 'Ticket Holder' section for notes. Use this for miscellaneous notes about this buyer. Swipe their ID or CC next time they return and you'll see any notes from previous purchases.BUYER TYPES If you use Buyer-Types to manage discounts in your box office, you can easily apply them to the current transaction in the new checkout screen. Simply select the Buyer-Type in the drop down list to apply it to this transaction.TEXT-MSG RECEIPTS You can now send a text-message receipt to a purchaser directly from the new checkout screen! Simply fill out their phone number and select their carrier. When the checkout is complete, our ticket ninja will automatically shoot them a text message receipt with a link to their mobile e-Tickets!

Ticket Ordering Revamped

HMT has revamped our ticket ordering process for our event promoters. It is now easier than ever for our clients to order bulk tickets for their shows! Updates include a completely new ticket ordering interface, a redesigned ticket setup interface, and easier accessibility to the ticket ordering form. You can order tickets by clicking on the 'Events' tab, then 'Order Tickets' from the sub menu. Instead of having to submit orders for events individually you can now add tickets from multiple events to your order.

The user interface is straight forward - Just select the event you want to order tickets for, then set the quantity and add it to your cart. You can edit or remove any item in your cart. You can select the shipping address we have saved for you, or fill out the shipping address manually. Click 'Process Order', confirm your order, and you're done! The default ticket text will be available for every event, however if you have custom ticket text set up for the event it will show up in the preview. The ticket text is still editable in the event form, and part of this update is an improved layout for the ticket setup. Each ticket now has tabs for each of the major ticket options. Click the 'Ticket Text' tab to edit up to four lines of text. Now your custom ticket text will appear when you select the event in the ticket ordering form.

If you prefer, we can email you status updates so you'll know when your order has been received, printed and shipped. We hope you enjoy your new ticket ordering process!

Public Event Calendar Widget!

HoldMyTicket has created a widget that allows anyone to post an event calendar to their pages! You can filter events by name, city, genre, venue and more. The widget includes an event search function, making it dynamic and user controllable. You have the option to show or hide the search.

Customizing the widget is simple and versatile. You can change colors, dimensions and display settings to match your site design or preferences. Its fun to mess around with the settings to list the events you want the way you want. Here are some examples of different widget designs:

Once you've tweaked your design just click the 'Get Code' button and copy the code. Its in iFrame. Then paste the code into your page's HTML and you're done! What are you waiting for? Go make your own widget here!
