Manage ticketing for your events both large and small. UCare processes payments, and helps you keep in contact with event attendees via SMS or email. You can add an event list and booking forms to you website, this makes it simple to publish new events to your website just by adding the event to UCare. UCare even lets you can use any smartphone to scan ticket, check in kids and attendees and track attendance.
The sold progress bar displays how many tickets have been sold and the total amount charged, likewise the refunded progress bar displays how many tickets have been refunded and the total amount refunded. The last progress bar; "Checked in" displays the total number of people who have been checked in by having their ticket scanned. Learn more about how to check in attendees.
Tip: When tickets are free people often don't turn up for events making it hard to manage seating levels. A simple answer to this problem is to charge a small amount for tickets and then refund the tickets at the end of night, you may even suggest to attendees on the night that not refunding their tickets is an easy way to give towards the event. The refund progress bar makes it easy for you to keep track of how many tickets have been refunded.
In order for people to book tickets to an event it needs to have one or more ticket types, you can add ticket types by tapping the "New ticket type" button on the Ticket types tab. The Ticket types tab also shows how many tickets have been sold for each ticket type.
You can also create meetings for events that can be used to check people in and keep track of adult or even children's attendance at your event.
