Did You Know: Access Codes

Did you know you can create personalized codes to unlock hidden price levels for your events?

As your onsale draws near, you may find yourself wanting to limit and control who can buy tickets. Our system allows you to easily apply an access code, which is a code that grants exclusive access to otherwise hidden price levels on your event listing. For instance, you can use this feature as a perk for select customers, without having to open it to the public. You can choose to unlock a hidden price level for VIP guests to an event. Or you can even use it as a promotion tool, as the exclusivity of the codes can play on your audience’s fear of missing out.

To create an access code, go to the Inventory page of the checkout process within the ShowClix Admin. Click the “+ Add Price Button,” and after entering the relevant information for the price level you’d like your access code to affect, deselect the “Active Online” button. This will hide the designated price inventory from the checkout page. Next, under the Manage tab, click “Add coupons” and change the coupon type to “Access Code.” You’ll be prompted to create a code name, which will serve as your access code. You can also enter a custom description, set the date range during which it will be in effect, and limit the number of times the code can be redeemed. Then simply distribute this code to customers, and they’ll be able to enter it on your checkout page to unlock the hidden price level and buy their tickets!
