Setting up Group / Couples / Family / Double occupancy / Whole Table tickets

You may need to set up tickets for groups of certain size such as "Group discount", or a "Family tickets", "Couples tickets", "Double occupancy", or in case of a dinner-style event, "Whole table" tickets.

Let's assume your individual tickets are $50.00 and you want to setup a Family ticket for families of 5 at the price of $200.00:

First create a price LEVEL for individual tickets, set the face price to $50

Then add a price VARIATION to the individual price level using the below values:

Set the Name to "Family of 5"

Set proper description.

Set the face price to $40.00 ($200.00 / 5 = $40.00) . In other words set the face price to the price of individual ticket, when purchased as family group.

Similarly set the "Service charge" to the service charge of individual ticket, when purchased as family group.

Set the "Minimum number to purchase" to 5. It makes the ticket picker dropdown to start from 5 instead of 1.

Set the "Available in increments" to 5 also. It makes the ticket picker dropdown to have values of 5, 10, 15, 20, ...

Optionally set the "Maximum number to purchase" to limit the maximum tickets that can be purchases per transaction.

Using this setup, buyers can buy 5, 10, 15, ... tickets or in other words, they can purchase for 1 family, 2, 3 or more.

When they purchase tickets for a family, they will receive 5 individual tickets and 5 tickets get deducted from your inventory to make sure you do not oversell.

The same setup can be used to create group tickets, couple tickets or whole-table tickets.

Another method:

While the above mentioned method is best for most group ticketing cases, it may not be appropriate for all use-cases.

For example if you want to use the method for an assigned seat event and for a big group like 10 or more, it requires that the whole group seat in the same row because they can only select 10 seats at a time, and it may not be possible due to limitation or availability on the seating chart.

In such cases, you can use "coupons" instead. Just create your individual price levels and variations and then create one or more coupons to give discount on purchases that have x or more tickets of certain price. The coupons can be set to require a coupon code or to be auto-applied and apply without any code as long as the purchase meets the requirements of the coupon.
