The app is available for free on the App Store for iPads and iPhones.

Ticket Sales App

Through this ticket sales app, patrons can buy their tickets by cash or card. If a patron wants to pay by card, you can use a connected iOS credit card swipe device. (If you are in need of an iOS credit card swipe, you should visit the hardware tab on ThunderTix to view our available devices for purchase.) You can swipe the patron's card and the purchase will immediately go through the same payment gateway as all other credit card orders. Although, if you experience trouble with swiping someone's card, you can manually enter the card's information, too.

Follow these instructions below to sell tickets on the app:

  1. Download the ThunderTix App from the app store for iOS or Android.
