July 12 - July 16

  • 🎫No more resending of lost tickets!Y ou read that right… we’ve automated the resending of tickets if a customer gets in touch requesting this! This is triggered when a customer clicks on the β€˜Contact Organiser’ link via your event page, and selects β€˜Can’t find my tickets/invoice’. If the email they enter matches with an existing order, the order confirmation email will be resent. If there’s no match, you’ll still get this customer query into your nominated inbox

    - "Accessibility" has been moved to "Design & Comms"

May 31 - June 4

  • πŸ“©Readded QR code onto the confirmation email. You may have noticed the QR code disappeared from ticket confirmation emails. This was originally removed due to some confusion on it's use. We've added this back in after long discussions, along with some instructions for attendees.

    This QR code is the same QR code that appears on a buyer's first ticket. An usher can scan this QR code to check them in and then bring up all tickets on their order to check them in manually - time saving! Or, an attendee can click "View ticket" on their email to view all tickets.

    If the buyer only has one ticket, then no need for them to open their ticket 😁

  • 🌏Multi-country bank account support. You can now create multiple bank accounts under different currencies. Events can only be paid out to a bank account in the same currency. Events with bank accounts set from another country have had the bank account removed
  • πŸ’²Zippay transactions will now have a fee of 2.5% charged on top of the net sales of the order. This is never worn by attendees and is worn by the organiser. This is applied to all new events created moving forward. Existing events will not be subject to this change.

    Up until now, the QR code appearing on order confirmation emails was a copy of the first ticket's QR code. While great for quickly bringing up a whole order it also caused confusion with certain tickets being checked-in when they shouldn't have.
    We have removed this in the short term until a better solution is implemented.
Bug fixes πŸ›
- Access code usage was not being tracked for some events
- Cancelled tickets were still appearing when accessing the PDF ticket

  • Updated waitlist to include a "put back on sale" option

This is great for when you've sold out but have now a bunch of extra tickets to put on sale. Rather than managing the waitlist, simply put tickets back on sale for everyone to grab!

  • πŸ“…πŸ’Έ Ability to delay the payout date of your event both at the event and account level.
