Starting with Event Espresso 4.3 you can offer discounted pricing and volume discount promotions based on the quantity of tickets someone purchases. This article shows how to create a ticket bundle where you can set a lower price per ticket when purchased in a quantity bundle that you choose in advance. Ticket Bundles are different than Graduated Pricing which provides tiers of prices based on pre-defined ticket quantities.
Setting up Ticket Bundle Pricing Options
In the Event Tickets & Datetimes section of the Event Editor you create or edit a ticket and click the gear icon (⚙️). Clicking the gear icon ⚙️will open a panel where you can set the Minimum Quantity and Maximum Quantity to the same non-zero value. In this example we set both fields to 4 to create a ticket bundle of 4 tickets.
When displayed in the Event’s Ticket Selector, the Price column will multiply the individual price of the ticket by the ticket bundle quantity.
In this example the ticket price set in the Event Editor is $20 so the ticket bundle of 4 tickets displays “$80 / bundle” in the Ticket Selector Price column, and the QTY dropdown select box in the Ticket Selector will display two options: 0 and 4. There is also a third ticket price set for $15 with a bundle quantity of 8.
Note, we recommend using whole dollar values for the average price of tickets so that the ticket prices do not have to round the dollar amounts by the number of tickets in the bundle. Using fractional dollar amounts can be confusing for attendees and the Event Espresso system.
