New Features!

Sales Rules

"Sales Rules" allow you to set up and enforce the following rule types:

  • Limit sales of a ticket type(s) to "X" per event instance.
  • Prevent sales of a ticket type(s) based on sales of another defined ticket type.

Violation of your configured rules: 

  • When your configured rules are violated in any sales channel, buyers attempting to purchase tickets will receive error messages (online error message controlled by you).

New white label variables, through the online sales channel, allow you to control how error messages appear. 

  • "event-event-price-title": "tickets", 
  • "event-sales-conflict-title": "These tickets are no longer available for the selected time: ", 
  • "orders-page-rule-violation-MARKUP": "Ticket Limit. Please adjust before placing order", 
  • "checkout-process-rule-violation-MARKUP": "Ticket Limit. Please adjust before placing order" 

On POS, agents are able to override capacity limits and continue the sale if they choose, just like Membership Entitlements.

Example Usage:

  • If tickets to the general public have already been sold, this feature prevents a VIP experience ticket type from being sold (and vice versa).
  • You may limit ticket sales by ticket type. 


  • Sales Rules are found in the pricing area of the event template.

Copy for Variable in sales rules suggestion:

  •  "event-limit-exceeded-title": "Please review your tickets"
