General Questions about Event Espresso
Thank you for offering this. We are hoping to find out soon because the person making our website is waiting for the plugin.
I noticed that Garth replied to your email. I will paste his response here.
I’ll try to answer your questions. It will also be helpful if you test Drive Event Espresso (http://eventespresso.com/download/test-drive-event-espresso/) for free.
You can create multiple tickets per event then people can choose which ticket they need. The question form you create is the same for each ticket of an event. If you want different tickets to have different questions then they need to be different events. If you want people to register for multiple events at the same time you might want to use the Multiple Event Registration addon (http://eventespresso.com/product/espresso-multiple/).
The waiting list just creates a separate event where people can register if the first event is closed or full. Then you choose who you allow in to the event.
You can require that people agree to a terms and conditions policy before they register using a required custom question: http://eventespresso.com/wiki/how-to-require-attendees-to-agree-to-a-policy-before-being-allowed-to-register/
Event Espresso sends automatic payment and registration confirmation emails. You can send other emails to people/attendees manually.
Event Espresso does require full-payment, but you could also create a ticket option that isn’t full-priced. But if they pay that lesser ticket price it will still show them as paid in full, you’d have to follow up with them with an invoice or modify their account with a balance to collect the remaining amount.
If you want to let someone in for free, I’d suggest just giving them a discount code to use for 100% of the cost.
Event Espresso is only compatible with WordPress. If you’re collecting sensitive information then you’ll want to be sure your website is secure.
Event Espresso is generally higher priced than other plugins, but we have better support, developers and more features.
You control your fees to customers, we don’t get involved there.
You can use Event Espresso on multiple websites, but we only support one website per license (access to our staff and documentation and upgrades).
We update Event Espresso every month with new fixes, upgrades, and features. As with all plugins and themes, we always recommend making a back up of your site before upgrading to be sure you have a contingency plan if something seriously goes wrong (which is rare).
We have limited reporting, but we allow you to export to excel to create whatever report you need (by transaction or answers to a certain question, etc.).
Event Espresso operates with an annual license, which you can choose to renew or not. We offer discounts to people who renew on-time, and those renewal offers expire when your license expires. It’s cheaper to maintain a license than to let it expire.
I hope that help. Let us know if I can do anything else for you.
