Event organizers use Event Espresso for receiving event registrations for festivals, conferences, concerts, nonprofit events, and more. The Printable Tickets add-on will send an attendee their tickets right after a successful registration from your WP website. Your attendees can then print out tickets and then bring them to the event where the QR code on them can be scanned using an Android phone or iPhone for check-in to an event.
Here are some ways that our event organizers use the Printable Tickets add-on for their events:
– Send conference attendees their tickets after registration
– Send festival attendees their tickets after they register online
– Send tickets to a group of friends that register for an art class
Why sell event registrations and tickets with a third party?
Sure, you can do that but is it worth the 4-6.5% service/commission fee for every ticket or registration sold?
Think about event organizers who take a loss on paying these fees.
Other event organizers may be doing that, but things can be different for you. You can gladly say “no thanks” to flushing hundreds or even thousands down the drain in commission/service fees and ticketing fees every year.
What could your organization do with that money instead?
Create your own event registration and ticketing system from your WordPress website using Event Espresso and the Printable Tickets add-on today.
Our event organizers choose the Printable Tickets extension so they can send attendees their tickets right after an event registration through email. The tickets can then be scanned using a mobile phone for an easy check-in for an event.

Is a WordPress website required?
Event Espresso and the Printable Tickets extension are both plugins for WordPress so you’ll need a website running WordPress to use them. If you don’t currently have a website, then check out Event Smart where you can accept online event registrations with ticketing so your attendees can receive tickets through email after they register.
How are tickets created for an attendee?
A ticket is created by the Printable Tickets extension using the Primary Registrants information, and this is the person that registers for an event. If they choose multiple quantities, then their ticket will be valid for the number of registrations that were made. For example, if “attendee A” registers for three tickets, then their ticket with its QR code will be valid for three check-ins into an event.
How do group registrations work with ticketing?
When the Personal Information Question Group is enabled for Additional Registrants through the lower right of the event editor, then a ticket will be created for each attendee that registers. This means that each attendee will receive their own ticket with a unique QR code.
Can I create custom tickets for different events?
Yes, you can create different ticket templates and assign them to various events.
Are barcodes on event tickets supported?
Yes, scanning of barcodes on the event tickets is available with the Barcode Scanner extension for Event Espresso.
What devices are supported by the mobile apps?
An Android phone or an iOS device like an iPhone or iPad can be used for check-in. The check-in processes communicate with your WordPress website in real time, so an active internet connection is required.
