Multiple Event Plugin — user interface question

I’ve read the documentation on the Multiple Event Plugin and I’m still unclear as to how I will allow my users to add multiple events to their cart.

For example: I run a series of tennis camps. Each camp can have multiple dates. A customer can sign up for as many dates as they wish. So it would look like:

Adult tennis camp
July 27
July 29
August 4
August 6

Will I need to put in a register shortcode for each date. And does clicking on the resulting link then add that class into the shopping cart?

Hi there,

Did you get a chance to watch the video on this page?

Basically, your active events will be automatically listed on an events page where your registrants can buy tickets to multiple different events at once.

Based on what you posted above, you might be able to just create a single event with four datetimes and corresponding tickets (screenshot:

Also, you could create a fifth ticket that included all four datetimes, like this:

Thanks. I checked out the video. I think that what we are looking to do something similar to what you posted in the screenshot (one camp with multiple sessions, each session being considered an “event”). But is that shot an image of the front end (where the user would add events) or the back/admin side? I couldn’t see where/how the user would add an event to their cart.

This screenshot ( is using the multiple datetimes and tickets feature in Event Espresso which is part of the core plugin.

If you have a single event with multiple sessions, then that could be used to create those datetimes and tickets. Then they would be available for selection on the front-end by a registrant/attendee.

The multiple event registration add-on could also be used for this but it is generally used for introducing a shopping cart feature to the site where different events which may not be necessarily related can be added to a cart and then you check out once.

Thank you. I apologize, but I’m still fuzzy on the sequence of events that leads up a user entering their multiple events into the cart. My understanding is that it works this way using the MER plugin:
1) Event is displayed on page;
2) User clicks “Add to Cart”
3) At that point, they are taken to a place where they can enter multiple events? Or does that click simply add the event to the cart and they move on to continue “shopping” for other events?

The confusion is likely because your currently using EE3, the screenshots and video posted above are all from EE4.

EE4 is the latest version of Event Espresso but works differently from EE3, it doens’t have the same flow that EE3 does.

Each event is displayed and shows its own ‘Ticket selector‘ in which all of the tickets within the event are shown. The user selects the tickets and add those tickets to the cart, directly from the event list.

Then (with EE4 MER) they can view the cart, continue to the registration form or event add other tickets from other events from there.

Are you looking to update to that latest version of EE or continue using EE3 with its own version of the Multi Event Add-on?

Do you currently have active events?

You could try test driving EE4 by singing up here:

Once you have done that if you post a link to your site here we can setup an event for you the way Seth had his above and you can view the whole process.
