This is the new one-stop shop for information and instruction about how Give Lively members use our powerful, practical and free fundraising technology. For more background support about Give Lively, go to our introductory FAQ pages.
Would you like offer discount or complimentary tickets to your event? Unfortunately, our Event Ticketing technology does not allow for this at present moment. But there is a way to work around it if you expect to comp a large number of attendees or receive a high volume of offline sales.
Have you already built an Event Ticketing page?
At present, our Event Ticketing technology does not allow for discounted or complimentary event tickets.
That being said, if you expect to comp a large number of attendees or receive a high volume of offline sales (that you will manage manually), you should consider creating a duplicate event page, allowing you to process special tickets and add the donor information to your Give Lively fundraising data.
To duplicate an event page:
To update the ticket prices:
The best approach to using this duplicate event page is to withhold the link and internally process special tickets by entering the collected attendee information directly into the outward-facing forms. You may choose to use each person’s email address and thereby send the tickets directly to the attendee, or you can direct all email receipts to your own internal email and send out something custom made instead that reflects the reduced or waived ticket price.
Again, be sure not to share the link to this duplicate event page -- it doesn’t appear on tickets sent through our platform -- as anyone who has the link will be capable of registering for your event at the discounted/free price. As described above, it's best to internally and manually process all orders.
