  • You can create various ticket types using WooCommerce attributes and variations. To do this please follow these instructions:

    1. Go to the ‘Attributes’ tab in the Product Data panel

    2. Create a new attribute called ‘Ticket Type’. It’s very important that the attribute is called this as this is the name that is used to reflect the ticket type on the actual ticket

    3. Add the name of each ticket type under values and separate them with the pipe symbol ‘|’ e.g. VIP | General | Early Bird

    4. Make sure that you select ‘Visible on the product page’ and ‘Used for variations’

    5. Save the attributes

    6. Click on the ‘Attributes’ tab in the Product Data panel

    7. Add a variation for each ticket type and specify the relevant ticket criteria (price, in stock etc.)

    8. Make sure that you select ‘Enabled’

    9. We recommend that you select ‘Virtual’ if you do not want the shipping information displayed on the checkout screen

    10. Save/update the post once all variations have been added

    11. The ticket type variations will now display as ticket options when purchasing a ticket

  • Once your product is published it will appear in your WooCommerce store and users will be able to purchase tickets for your event
