How do i add ticket quantity after somebody has picked a choice from a dropdown of ticket options?
Also, how do i make it so you can purchase different ticket options. IE, somebody wants to buy 2 Standard tickets and 2 VIP tickets for a total of 4 to be processed? Do i need a different add-on for this?

Hi jomo,

The first one is possible by allowing group registrations and setting a max group limit. Then set additional info to “no info required”.

The second one will be possible out of the box in Event Espresso 3.2 without any add-ons. For Event Espresso 3.1, you’ll need the Multi Event Registration add-on. That adds a cart option where if someone wants to select multiple ticket options within the same registration, they can go to the cart and select quantities of both types.

See this tutorial in the documentation for more info on how you can set this up:

Thanks for the quantity help -worked great!

I purchased the Multi-Event Registration –
So instead of having three ticket options for one event –
Do i create 3 events on the same day – but with different prices?
I like the idea of being able to add to cart – different ticket options and quantities.
So how would i show these three options on one page? with shortcode right?

You wouldn’t need to create separate events. If you already have your ticket options set up, you can simply add an add to cart link to the registration page by adding something like this to the event description for the event:

[ESPRESSO_CART_LINK direct_to_cart=1 anchor=”Select multiple ticket types” moving_to_cart=”Redirecting to cart…”]

You can optionally set the registration form to not display on the standard registration page as outlined in the tutorial.
