  • How do I create my first event on Sticky Tickets?

    Our step-by-step wizard makes setting up your first event a breeze. Take a look at our Starter's Guide



  • When do I receive the revenue from my ticket sales?

    All revenue from your ticket sales is deposited directly into your nominated bank account (minus booking fees) at the conclusion of your event.* 

    We do however understand that funds are sometimes needed before an event is held to pay suppliers, therefore you can apply for the Payment Request Feature and request a portion of your ticket sales in advance. There is an application fee of $49 incl. GST payable per organiser. If approved, all of your events will have this feature.

    Please note: You will be requested to sign a personal guarantee and to provide 100 points of identification. 

    * This is industry standard, with very few ticketing providers releasing sales before an event as there are restrictions placed upon us in order to protect ticket purchasers from purchasing tickets to an event that is not held.

  • I need to be paid before my event finishes

    All revenue from your ticket sales is deposited directly into your nominated bank account (minus booking fees) at the conclusion of your event.  This is industry standard, with very few ticketing providers releasing sales before an event, as there are restrictions placed upon us in order to protect ticket purchasers from purchasing tickets to an event that is never held.  We do understand however that sometimes suppliers/venues etc need to be paid before an event, therefore we have the Payment Request Feature, which provides you with the ability to access 50% of ticket sales.


    If you require funds to be transferred prior to the event, you can apply for the Payment Request Feature and receive up to 50% of your ticket sales in advance. There is an application fee of $49 incl. GST payable per organiser. If approved, all of your events will have this feature.

     

    How to apply:

    • Fill out the application form (see attached file below) and
    • Also send a scanned copy of your driver’s license (front and back) and 2 utility bills with the same address as your license.
    • Pay a $49 processing fee (only billed if your application is approved)

     

    If approved, a "Payment Request" tab will appear on your event summary page. For details on how to request funds once you've been approved, please see the request a payment page.


    If you have any questions regarding payment or anything else, please contact us at support any time and we'd be more than happy to help.

  • How many events can I run at the same time?

    You can run as many events as you like at any one time. 


    If you do have multiple events running at the same time, you might like to create your own Organiser Page, which lists all current events and is updated automatically. The URL always remains the same so you can send ticket purchasers here to see all events. Please contact us if you have any questions and we'd be happy to help.

  • I haven’t received my ticket revenue as a deposit in my bank account?

    We require you to complete a bank verification process before you start receiving money from your ticket sales.

    If you haven't received your ticket sales, double check that you have:

    • Correctly entered your bank account details. 
    • Received your 1 cent deposit from Sticky Tickets and entered the deposit reference number into your organiser admin area.



    You can view if the 1 cent has been deposited to your nominated bank account by going to the Transactions tab:


    You are still able to sell tickets to your event prior to completing the bank verification process. We simply collect the funds on your behalf until you are ready to receive them.

    When a ticket purchaser buys tickets, along with their e-ticket they will either receive a Receipt or Tax Invoice.

    * There is no need to print reports. Keep all of your reports online - they are updated automatically with each purchase.


    * Send invitations electronically


    * Set up recycling stations at your event


    * If your event is held annually do not print the date on the promotional material, so you can use extras again next year.

  • What are my legal obligations as an event organiser?

    Your Legal Obligations as an Event Organiser Under Australian Consumer Law


    Australia Consumer Law is a set of obligations for businesses engaging in trade or commerce, which protects the rights of consumers. To help you remain within the guidelines, here are some considerations to take in the organisation of your event.

    • Ensure you secure appropriate approval/permits from the venue, prior to selling tickets.
    • Clearly list the contact details of the organiser, so that consumers can communicate directly if needed.
    • Regularly meet with all of those assisting with the planning and organisation of the event, to make sure it is all going sufficiently and successfully
    • Provide a thorough brief to food and drink vendors to ensure numbers will be catered for adequately, at appropriate times.
    • Ensure the quality and quantity of facilities on site, particularly with regards to the number of attendees.
    • Ensure that any promised merchandising stock will arrive in a timely manner and in adequate quantities to supply all consumers.
    • Ensure there are adequate staffing levels to manage crowds on the day.
    • Develop a plan of action for extreme weather events.
    • Consider the conditions under which you would provide a refund and ensure your ticketing agent is part of that process, in case of significant problems prior to or during the event.
    • Thoroughly brief all event staff working during the event to ensure they are all aligned regarding event management procedures and contingency planning.
    • Ensure event staff can communicate effectively with each other as well as event managers and local authorities during the event.


               Consumer guarantees and refunds

    • Pop-up events involve supplying consumers with a service (the experience). Under the ACL, suppliers automatically provide guarantees on the goods and services they provide to consumers.
    • A supplier guarantees that services are provided:
      • With due care and skill
      • Which are fit for any specified purpose
      • Within a reasonable time (when no time is specified).
    • In the case of any goods provided, a supplier guarantees (among other things) that:
      • Goods are of an acceptable quality
      • Goods will match any description provided
    • Events involving supplying consumers with a service (the experience) means that suppliers automatically provide guarantees on the goods and services they provide to consumers, according to Australian Consumer Law.
    • If the good or service fails to meet a consumer guarantee, a consumer has rights against the supplier, who must provide a remedy promptly.  In the case of major failures, ie cancellation (where a consumer would not have purchased the good or service had they known the extent), the remedy is normally a refund. If you have to reschedule your event and the ticket purchaser is unable to attend the new event date, they are entitled to a refund, including booking fees.
    • Consumers may be entitled to a full or partial refund if the service is not provided to the extent of the promise.
    • The ACL prohibits the use of unfair contract terms, including all Terms and Conditions which consumers must agree to when purchasing tickets. This includes terms which limit the liability of the organiser in providing refunds or other remedies. You can state that refunds will not be given for change of mind purchasers.
    • Event organisers are encouraged to proactively provide consumers with as much information as they can about the circumstances when they would be entitled to refunds. For example, Terms and Conditions could clearly advise consumers they are entitled to a refund if an event is cancelled or if the headline act is no longer attending, or in the event of a postponement of an event that organisers would offer consumers tickets to the alternate date or the consumer can choose a refund.
    • It is misleading for event organisers to accept payment for event tickets (or allow their ticketing agent to accept payments) if they:
    • do not intend to put on the event,
    • intend to put on an event different to the event advertised, or
    • know (or should have known) or were reckless to the fact that you would not be able to put on the event.
    • If you do accept payment in the above circumstances, you may be committing an offence.
    • The law is not intended to punish businesses that genuinely try to meet supply agreements, however, event organisers should communicate any alterations to an event as soon as possible and as widely as possible and offer appropriate remedies in response to failures of any consumer guarantees so consumers can make informed decisions.
    • Ultimately, event organisers are encouraged to review their practices to ensure they are operating with the ACL, and make sure to remedy situations with a ticket purchaser if they are not satisfied.

  • I received an error message

    If you received an error message while purchasing a ticket or while setting up/managing your event, please describe the error, take a screenshot and send us a copy via email so we can investigate further.


    You can send us a message through the Contact Us page and we will begin work on resolving the issue as soon as possible for you.


  • How to Create Group Discounted Tickets

    Organisers often like to offer promotional group/bundled tickets such as:


    - Buy one, get one free

    - Group of 10 Tickets

    - Buy one, get one 50% off



    Bundling tickets and offering deals at reduced rates encourages ticket sales. To create these tickets, you will need to use the Group Ticket type.


    A. Ticket Type: Select 'Group Ticket' or 'Group Reserved Seating Ticket' (if you have a seating plan)

    B. Ticket Name: What you would like to name the ticket

    C. Group Size: This indicates how many tickets you want to generate for each purchase of this ticket type. For example, if you are selling "Buy 1, Get 1 Free", then you're selling 2 tickets for this, therefore your group size is 2. 

    D. Price: Set the price you want to sell this ticket as a group. 

    E. Ticket Capacity: This indicates how many tickets you would like to sell for this ticket type. Make sure to use a number that is divisible by this number you set for group size field. (ie if the ticket group size is 2, make sure the ticket capacity is an even number).

    F. Max Per Order: Set how many sets of this ticket type you want to sell.

    G. Start Selling: Sets when you would like to start selling this ticket type

    H. Stop Selling: Sets when you would like to stop selling this ticket type

    I. Show Tickets Remaining: If you would like the number of tickets remaining to show on your event page. If you do not want to display the remaining tickets left for this ticket type, you can leave it blank

    J. Show Tickets Remaining (Event Level) - You can specify the number you want to use as the threshold for your ticket capacity. This will display on your event page indicating the number of tickets remaining once the unsold tickets reaches this number or less. Note: If you don't want to show the number of tickets remaining, you can leave this blank. 

    K. Allow App Sales: When checked, this will allow any event operators to sell this ticket type through the scanning app

    L. Code Required: When checked, this will hide this ticket type once the promotion code link to it is entered. 


    if you have any questions about this or anything else, please don't hesitate to contact us and we'd be more than happy to help.
