We are pleased to announce that our Printable Tickets and Ticket Scanning add-ons are now available for Event Espresso 4 (EE4). These add-on platforms bring event managers and organizers even more autonomy and power to setup their own registration system.

EE4 Ticket Scanning

EE4 Ticket ScanningWhy spend hours checking-in attendees at the door with a piece of paper or spreadsheet? The Ticket Scanning add-on for EE4 is great for controlling access to your events by generating a barcode for each ticket and validating tickets by scanning it at the door. Your audience can bring the barcode on paper or in electronic format to be checked-in and it only takes seconds.

  • Integrates in real-time with the attendee list in Event Espresso 4.
  • Faster check-in process for you and attendees, saving you both time and money.
  • Allows for multiple check-in “stations”. Eg. use multiple barcode scanners to log into to the same attendee list so employees can scan tickets at multiple different locations.
  • Potentially paper-less events which simplifies the process and reduces costs.
  • Better tracking because human error is removed the the check-in process and a registration record is kept for all attendees.
  • Barcodes can be scanned with a USB or Bluetooth barcode scanner, or the number can be entered manually.
  • Supports code39, code93, code128, and datamatrix barcode types.
  • Makes your organization very official and innovative.

Please Note!
It is important that you know the differences between barcode scanners before making a barcode scanner purchase. We have confirmed that the some of the less expensive laser scanners cannot scan codes that are on mobile phone screens. If you plan on allowing attendees to display tickets on their mobile devices, you may need to purchase a CCD barcode scanner.

  1. Cool stuff, but i’m also curious about why they’ve swapped out scanning with mobile devices to bar code scanners. That was the whole reason we purchased EE3. Maybe this feature will be added to EE4 in the future?

    • Mobile device scanning might be available in the future, but it does require a API for EE4 which does not exist. However, you can use hand-held scanners on mobile devices too.

    • Hi,

      I’m glad the ticket scanner is working well for you. Can you describe what you mean by “install an access control without having someone to hold the scanner.”? I can see this conversation getting lengthy, so I would suggest that you contact our support team on the forums or by email at so we can talk about this in greater detail.
