Online Ticketing Allows you to Focus on the “W”
Football, Softball, Basketball and other sports events are often so popular the “just show up” method of seating in the stands doesn’t meet the demand. But we know that striving for a winning season is your primary goal, not worrying about ticket sales. Make ThunderTix Sports Ticketing Software the solution for your sporting event no matter the size of the crowd. Here are the benefits of our ticketing management software for sports events:
Sell Tickets in Advance of Game Day
Don’t wait until game day to start selling tickets, use our Sports Ticketing Software to make them available well in advance. Fans want to be reassured the game won’t be sold out when they arrive. Give them what they want with tickets available anytime, day or night, purchased from the comfort of their own home, dorm room or apartment.
If you also have a stadium box office to sell tickets in person, our software can improve that process too. Fans at the window will get their tickets faster with our integration for credit card swipes and thermal ticket printing. We offer reduced data entry per transaction with required fields being automatically populated with the information read on a credit card magnetic stripe. The faster you get people through the gate the more time they have to spend at your consession stands.
Online ticket sales, box office management and improved gate effiency start with a call to ThunderTix so we can get you up and selling tickets today!
Reserve Seating For Any Kind Athletic Event
Selling tickets for stadium grand stand seating requires that you to have a custom seating chart available as part of the online buying process. We can build an interactive seating chart that matches your sports stadium or racetrack and automatically updates itself as tickets are sold. A multi-check system guards against double-sold seats ensuring a positive buying experience for the fans.
The same technology that makes the buying experience better also makes selling tickets more efficient. We provide you with the tools to set prices of each seat by row, section and luxury sky box. You can adjust prices to meet demand per event right up until the very last minute before the game starts. Custom seating charts let account administrators hover the mouse pointer over any seat to see the price, sales status, who bought it, begin a refund or seat exchange, assign a temporarily hold or flag seats as unavailable.
No fees. No Waiting for Your Ticket Sale Dollars
Reminder, with ThunderTix you won’t have to wait until the day of your event for your ticket sales dollars. Funds are directly deposited nightly into your business bank account allowing you to utilize the money as it comes in. In addition to nightly deposits, we do not charge your patrons per-ticket fees and we give you complete control over any ticket and processing fees you wish to apply.
ThunderTix sports ticketing software has industry leading tools for you to apply and manage ticket fees. You can include ticket fees and service charges in dollar amounts or by percentage of the total purchase price. Fees can be given descriptive text (“$1 for grandstand repair and restoration fund“) and can be displayed as individual line items so buyers understand each fee. Our experience shows that clear descriptions of fees and services charges reduce cart abandonment.
Get More Funds Sooner With Season Ticket Packages
Sports events like baseball and softball will benefit most from season ticket packages. ThunderTix season ticket packages come in two types. The first is a Defined Package that you configure with game tickets of your own choosing. Divide the season up into separate blocks (“Pre-season“, “Regular season“, “Play-offs” etc) and set the prices accordingly. The pre-defined lists are shown right along with individual tickets on your website for a lucrative up-sell to boosters and super fans. Of course you can edit the prices as the season progresses or remove them from public sale entirely.
The other season ticket type is an Open Package. This let’s the buyer pick and choose which dates they want and build their own custom experience. Open Packages have all the same controls for you to assign prices, availability, and location inside the stadium. You can limit the open packages to only a certain day of the week (“Weekday games are half price during the regular season“) or for a limited time. Open packages are less of a commitment to the buyer but represent a higher amount of revenue compared to single game tickets.
Bundle Souvenirs with Ticket Purchases
You can use our sports ticketing software to sell team collectibles, race day souvenirs and even extras like parking or food court items. When creating an event, the option of bundling unique items into the ticket is available using custom ticket types (“First 500 tickets get a souvenir ball“) and you can make these bundled time sensitive. The price you charge for the extras you bundle into a ticket purchase are entirely up to you. If your currently working with a product vendor, buying at whole sale prices, you can sell the item at a mark-up or pass the saving on to your fans.
Tap into the Popularity of Coupons & Daily Deals
Thundertix coupon codes serve as a reward to your team’s fan base and as a way to increase attendance. Your team catch phrase can become an easy to redeem discount code that rewards loyal fans and is known only to them (“BOOMGOESTHEDYNAMITE“) not to the visiting team. At the final stage of the checkout process, fans are prompted to enter a coupon code. The discount will be immediately applied prior to final purchase and visible to the ticket buyer right on in their order subtotal. After the game is over, you can review the redemption rate to gauge its impact on overall ticket sales and then adjust future offering accordingly. Just like the other ThunderTix features, you can customize the value amount availability window and redemption conditions.
You can also incorporate wildly popular Groupon into your team ticket sales using the bulk upload feature. Groupon issues long lists of codes that you do not have to enter one-by-one. Using our bulk upload feature, the entire Groupon code list is added to your account and then immediately available for redemption by your ticket buyers.
