Advance sales

The key to smoothly transitioning from advance sales (or pre-printed) to general pricing, is to schedule your products first, and then ensure they're added to scheduled modules on their respective pages.

You can schedule advance sales when you are initially creating a product or after. To go through the complete ticket setup process, click here to read through our "First Steps" guide.

To schedule an advance product after it has already been created follow the steps below:

Go to Commerce > Products

  •  Add Product OR Choose to Edit your advance product, then:

  • In the blue box below Price, click Show Advanced Options

  • Under Buy Now Button select > Schedule it
  • Add the End Date, and, if required, add the Time

  • Continue the product setup and click SAVE 
  • Repeat steps 1-4 for the General priced item, but this time select the Start Date that is the same as the End Date for the advance product
  • Consider adding an End Date so that when online sales end (probably the last day of your event) you don't have to retrace your steps.
  • Be sure these products are named differently (ex. Pre-Sale Product Name & Product Name)

  • Now you can add these products to the ITEMS modules on pages, events and forms through your site.
    • Consider adding "Advance" priced products to a module that is scheduled to Hide at the same time the sale ends.
      • Hover over the module and click the "..." power dots, then select Schedule It and input the dates for this module to Show
    • Then add your "Regular" priced products to an Items module that is schedule to Show at the same time, and to Hide once your sale is over
  • What you'll see is that the BUY NOW buttons are only available for the products during their specific time period.
  • Be aware that these products might also show up on your Ticket Sales page as you add them to pages throughout your site.
