Manage Tiered Ticket Releases for Your Event

Price Tiering is a feature designed to automatically release tickets at a new price level once another price level has sold out. Only one price will appear at a time, keeping everything nice and neat on the event page.

Price Tiering is often used to encourage early purchasing.

For example, let's say our event has 3 admission levels:

  • Tier One - $10.00 (max sales of 100)
  • Tier Two - $20.00 (max sales 500)
  • Tier Three - $30.00 (max sales - unlimited)

If we tier these prices, the first 100 buyers would score a $10 ticket, the next 500 would get a $20 ticket, and the rest would pay $30. The prices would increase automatically, without you needing to monitor sales and make adjustments.
