Start Selling Tickets On Your Website

  • By ShowClix Team | Friday, November 9th, 2012

When you have the opportunity to engage fans and potential customers when they’re checking out your event, you jump at the chance, right? Then embedded checkout widgets are perfect for you!

All you need is a simple widget code, found in the ‘Connect’ section of our admin platform (and we also recommend that you involve your webmaster or the members of your staff responsible for your website; it’s easy but you’ll need some technical know-how to install it correctly).

A ShowClix checkout widget lives on an individual page of your website, and the feature will allow you to provide the complete ticket buying experience on your site. We’ve designed our embedded checkout system so that it efficiently performs checkout function, while making it convenient for customers to purchase tickets—and it looks pretty slick, too! 

There are two ways to view ShowClix’s embedded checkout on a website: calendar view or list view. The calendar view helps ticket buyers see all of the dates and locations throughout the month, including a preview of each event’s info (with the venue, ticket price, etc.) whenever a visitor moves their cursor over the event.

Meanwhile, the list provides a quick overview of all upcoming events, using virtually the same layout as our mobile optimized event overview.

Some advantages to having embedded checkout on your own website are to have your ticket buyers go through the entire checkout process without leaving your website. You’ll keep fans engaged and influenced by your brand, while capturing valuable traffic analytics to monitor how your customers purchase tickets.

You can learn more about customizing your checkout widget in this walkthrough. (Keep in mind that you’ll need to have your webmaster install your widget if you don’t know how to access and edit your HTML.)
