Ticket Station Scanning and iOS v11

Apple will be releasing an update to their operating system platform for mobile devices (iOS 11) later this Fall. If you upgrade to the new iOS version, you will ALSO need to be running version 5.8 or higher of our Ticket Station scanning application.

Interactive Ticketing will be releasing an auto-update for our software in early September. If you want to upgrade before that, Ticket Station 5.8 is available for download through our Dashboard Manager ticketing system.

Important Reminder: Back-up your event!

Do you have a secondary gateway account for your event? In case of primary gateway failure, a secondary gateway can be activated, preserving all transactions online and onsite. This is the best way to ensure maximum up-time for event ticket sales.

Here are the direct benefits of having a secondary gateway:
All merchant gateway providers have issues from time to time and no provider can boast 100% up time. Savvy clients with strong sales presence will opt to secure a secondary gateway.

If the primary gateway goes down, it is easy to switch over to the secondary gateway, preserving transactions with Online, POS and kiosk systems continuing to run.

As always please feel free to contact us with questions or if you would like additional information about setting up a secondary gateway at support@interactiveticketing.com or (877) 253-5676

Mobile Phone Scanning Update

Interactive Ticketing has officially adopted QR codes as the universal standard for scanning mobile devices. With more and more customers purchasing tickets from phones, we're committed to adjusting our services to meet the landscape. Scanning tickets from mobiles phones requires the use of 2-dimensional (2D) equipment capable of recognizing the QR barcode format.

All equipment provided by Interactive Ticketing is fully compatible with 2D barcoding methodologies. However, if you currently are using any 1D scanning equipment for your events, please know those will NOT work with QR barcodes from mobile phones, and should be restricted to scanning regular (paper) based barcodes ONLY.

If you have any questions about how to determine if your hardware's compatible with QR you can contact our support team at support@interactiveticketing.com or 877-253-5676 ext 2.

New Features 2017

Interactive Ticketing is proud to announce new features in our Dashboard system for 2017! Our developers have been working hard building powerful new tools to enhance our ticketing platform.

New Fraud Prevention Filter - This setting allows the system to match the "customer" name to the "billing" name entered for the credit card.  If they don’t match, the order's flagged as suspicious.
Price Point Report Clarification - We've added the ability for the Price Point Report to consolidate all the pricing variations on an item into a single row.  New columns have been added to display the amount of discounts that occurred for:

  • Facebook Shares
  • Twitter Shares
  • Twitter Follows
  • Total Discounts (including promo code discounted items)

Support for Generic Conversion & Tracking
- We now have the ability to support basic (single line) Conversion & Tracking tags for pixel images (<img>), scripts (<script>), and iFrames (<iframe>).  Examples of the formatting required are provided within the Dashboard setup tools.

Pop-Up For Donation Offer support - You can now choose to have a specific pop-up occur for our donation feature to give your customers that extra push to consider donating.
Upsell Report - Tracks statistics on acceptance/rejection rates for Upsell Promotions.  
Scanned Report Breakdown Options - We've updated and expanded what's available for breakdown choices on the new Scanned Report, allowing for more flexibility.
New Order Tagging system - Allows the creation of custom "tags" that can be assigned to individual orders.  Orders can be searched for by tag label.  The tools provide a list of the tags that've been created so far. This tool is perfect for linking orders together for custom reasons.
New Order Lookup / Data Export Tools -  These have been overhauled to include new features.
Promo Code Enhancements:

  • Notes - Internal notes may be stored for each Promotion.  These are not visible to customer.
  • Description - Optional field.  This will display to the customer along with the promo code & title once they put enter their promo code on the purchase page.

Updates to Mailchimp - Now our export includes a list of purchased price points in the export and Include any pre-live sign-up emails also.
