Ticket groups

Managing multiple ticket categories for your business can be a complex task, especially when you need to prioritize them for better visibility and organization. To help businesses address this challenge, we’ve introduced the ‘Ticket Groups’ feature. This tutorial will guide you through using ‘Ticket Groups’ effectively.

Why Use ‘Ticket Groups’?

Businesses with diverse ticket categories such as adults, kids, seniors, or various discounted tickets often need a way to group and prioritize ticket visibility. ‘Ticket Groups’ offer an organized method to display these ticket options to your customers, ensuring they find what they’re looking for easily and quickly.

Case Study: Riga Zoo’s Implementation

Before diving into the how-to, it’s helpful to understand the practical application. Riga Zoo, for instance, has adopted ‘Ticket Groups’ to categorize their ticket offerings on their website, providing a clear and user-friendly ticket selection process for their visitors. They’ve neatly divided tickets into two primary categories: ‘Popular tickets’ and ‘Other tickets’ to expedite the purchasing process. Moreover, to prominently highlight the opportunity for guests to contribute, they’ve introduced a “Donation” ticket and placed it within the “Popular tickets” category.
