EE4 Wait List Manager


The Wait List Manager add-on allows you to automate the process of capturing wait list signups when your events sell out.

Don’t lose out on extra cash and customers when an event sells out. Easily manage last minute event tickets and provide standby ticketing for your customers. The Wait List Manager add-on for Event Espresso 4 allows you to automate the process of capturing wait list signups when your events sell out.

Wait List

The Event Espresso Wait List Manager add-on maximizes event sales by allowing attendees to partially register for a datetime or ticket that has sold out, but then complete the registration process later after spaces have become available due to venue change, additional tickets, non-payment, cancellation, etc.

Basically, once you’ve activated the Wait List for an event and the event sells out, a button will automatically display on the event details page that encourages attendees to join a waiting list. If an attendee joins the waiting list and someone cancels, the waiting list attendee can be auto-promoted to the next available spot.

Wait List registrations can then be managed right from your WordPress dashboard. Just choose a registration from the wait list. Edit the registration:

If the wait list is activated on an event, and the event sells out, a button will automatically display on the event details page that encourages attendees to join a waiting list. If an attendee joins the waiting list and someone cancels, the waiting list attendee can be auto-promoted to the next available spot.

Once you’ve added a wait list to an event by adjusting the value of the “Wait List Spaces” setting and the event sells out, the ticket selector is replaced and a button will be displayed on the event details page. The “Sign Up For The Wait List” button allows potential attendees to sign-up to be on the waiting list if spaces open up. Spaces can open up if someone cancels or is removed from the event list.

Here’s a short video showing someone registering for event that has one ticket left, then going back and adding an attendee to the wait list.
