Adult/Child Prices Setup Using Multiple Events Registration

I know this has been mentioned many times but i’m not clear on hoe to set it up.

I would like to have – for a single event – 3 prices for tickets: Adult, Child, Student. Example: I want people to be able to select 2 Adults, 1 Child and student on the same registration with the add to cart button as seen in the sample images. i know it can be done using Multiple Events Registration but i’m not sure how.

Please advise.

Thanks

Hi,

That is possible. You are thinking of the shopping cart which is part of the multiple event registration addon.

Go to an event in the event editor within the WordPress dashboard.

Then turn off the registration form.

Now add this shortcode to the event description:
[ESPRESSO_CART_LINK event_id=”add_event_id_here” direct_to_cart=1 moving_to_cart=”Redirecting to cart…”]

Then update add_event_id_here to the event id of that event and save changes to the event.

Now when someone clicks on the Register link, they will be brought to the shopping cart to begin registration checkout. The cart will show all pricing options and you will be able to select a quantity for each pricing option and enter the attendee/registrant information.

Here are some other options for the shortcodes:

When I click register > View cart i get this message:
It looks like you are attempting to refresh a page after completing your registration or your cart is empty. Please go to the events page and try again.

Perhaps i am not placing the shortcode in the proper place.

I added to event description:
[ESPRESSO_CART_LINK event_id=”2″ direct_to_cart=1 moving_to_cart=”Redirecting to cart…”]

I added to page:
[SINGLEEVENT single_event_id=”sample-event-1-53f4c9760566e”]

The instructions that I shared before are for the single event page.

https://eventespresso.com/wiki/multiple-event-registration-addon/

I added to event description:
[ESPRESSO_CART_LINK event_id=”2″ direct_to_cart=1 moving_to_cart=”Redirecting to cart…”]

[SINGLEEVENT single_event_id=”sample-event-1-53f4c9760566e”]

I got it working by forcing ssl/https.

My question now is, is there a way that they don’t have to press ‘register > view cart’ and have auto redirect to the cart?

Info: I added to event description:
[ESPRESSO_CART_LINK event_id=”2″ direct_to_cart=1 moving_to_cart=”Redirecting to cart…”]
Added to page (sample-event):
[SINGLEEVENT single_event_id=”sample-event-1-53f4c9760566e”]

Thanks

Hi,

If they are coming from the event list page, then they would need to click twice to reach the cart. This is because the MER addon is expecting multiple events to be added to the shopping cart.

If you are on a single event page and use the shortcode that I shared, then it will take you directly to the shopping cart.

When clicking register from the single page event, it forwards to ‘/event-registration’ which shows all the events. I then have to click ‘add to cart’ to get the cart view. Below is what I’ve done. Am I doing it correctly? Please advise. Thanks

Hi,

Could you double-check your Event Espresso shortcodes in the general settings page?

Specifically, the [ESPRESSO_EVENTS] should be used once in Event Espresso 3.

Just checked, the ‘event registration’ page has [ESPRESSO_EVENTS] in it.

Hi,

There is a problem with one or more of the shortcodes in use or a page isn’t setup correctly in the General settings area of Event Espresso.

Try this:

1) Deactivate Event Espresso

2) Go to WordPress pages and search for Espresso

3) Trash and delete all pages

4) Reactivate Event Espresso and go to General Settings –> Page Settings

5) Four WordPress pages will need to be created again. Please create each of them and apply the needed shortcodes.

6) Refresh the General Settings page and select the pages so that the are assigned. Then save changes.

From here go to Settings –> Permalinks and save changes.

I installed it on another domain and its working fine.
Is there a way to to have it skip directly to the shopping cart?
I added a onload .click script to the page but it still takes a few seconds.

see https://events4.creativesls.com/eva-schloss-chabad-suffern/

Thanks

Hello,

You would need to use a shortcode like this:

[ESPRESSO_CART_LINK event_id=”2″ direct_to_cart=1 moving_to_cart=”Redirecting to cart…”]

When that is clicked, then the event is added to the cart and the session begins. Otherwise, the cart page will report that you need to add an event (because it is empty).

For some reason, when clicking ‘register’ on an iframed page (ie the events page is iframed on another site) that has ‘https’ the register button says ‘redirecting to cart…’ but freezes. only after reloading the page does it show ‘view cart’ and then you can click and go to the cart.

On a http page it works fine.

Any ideas as to what may trigger it?

Thanks

You can’t run registrations through an iframe from another site. Google Chrome will block the request since its cross-domain.
