Shopper Access: Landing Page Messages, Access Codes and Price Codes
Landing Page Message Seen by all users before they can start shopping
Managers have the option of entering a landing page message (clear field to remove an existing message). Text provided here will be displayed to shoppers before they can start shopping for tickets.
Click on the Shopper access link in the Management panel to get to the Shopper access code and landing message page. Then enter your choice of code in the Message field and submit the update. (You can use markdown syntax in this message; if that doesn't mean anything to you, don't worry about it.)
Here is a sample message:
General sales are not yet open. Cast members can type the code they have been given into the field on this page to purchase tickets.
Note: It is not necessary to have an access code to get a landing page with a message. Just leave the Access code field blank if that's what you want.
Access Code Only patrons who have the code can buy tickets
Click on the Shopper access link in the Management panel to get to the Shopper access code and landing message page. Enter an access code (or clear field to remove an existing one). Shoppers will be asked to enter this code before they can proceed. You can use any characters you want, but only the letters and numbers are compared, and case is ignored.
A common use of an access code is to let cast members buy tickets before opening general online sales.
Price Codes and Discounts Advanced
Managers can set one or more price codes to prevent shoppers who do not know the code from buying at specific prices or in specific seating sections. Click here to see how to set a price code.
Price codes are an advanced feature, and have seen minimal use so far. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to use price codes, and we'll help you get them set up properly.
