Easy event ticketing with Chirrpy extends to creating and quickly distributing complementary tickets to your event.
By using our Comp Tickets functionality, you can give tickets away, for example, to business partners, sponsors, vendors, and media.
What are Comp Tickets?
A complementary ticket is simply a ticket you don’t charge for. Want to distribute free “Saturday After VIP Special” or a “Family of 4 Fun Pack” tickets? It’s easy with Chirrpy. Here’s how:
NOTE: You will need the email address of every individual you want to send comp tickets to. If you’re creating 10 comp tickets for a radio station giveaway, you’ll just the Promotions Manager’s email address. Use it for each ticket. If you’re sending one comp ticket to a sponsor, you’ll need that person’s email address.
i. Log in to your Chirrpy account and click on My Events.
ii. Click on the event in your event list.
iii. Click on the “Orders” icon in the left column.
iv. Just above the list of ticket orders for your event, click on the Comp Tickets link.
v. You will see every ticket type you created for your event. Select the quantity of the ticket that you want to send out as a complementary ticket. Click Send Tickets button.
vi. You will then see an Order Summary/checkout page for your event. You need to complete any Registrant Information and Attendee Information required fields. The email address is the individual who is going to receive the emailed ticket.
NOTE: Any fields that are required during a normal checkout for the event are still required when you create a comp ticket. For example, you may have to provide fields such as First Name and Last Name. If you don’t know the information, you can use something such as “KCBS Contest Winner.” Remember, you’re the one who is going to have this data after the event so make sure it is useful.
vii. Once you’ve completed the fields, simply click the Submit Registration button. The tickets will be emailed to the address given.
Tracking Comp Tickets Usage
It’s easy to track which comp tickets were used at your event. Just download our free mobile app, and use it for event checkin. After the event, you‘ll be able to sort by ticket types to see how many comp ticket holders actually came.
