The Box Office App allows you to sell tickets and merchandise onsite at your event.
Here are some things you should know before you get started...
The app is available for iPads only (IOS 11 or higher with a lightning port)
MUST be linked to WIFI service in order to get full functionality.
Capturing an email address at checkout is optional. But if you choose not to, you will be unable to issue refunds through our system later.
In order to sell merchandise, you must also select a ticket level in order to checkout.
This is compatible with all of our payment gateways. If you use a gateway other than WePay, just be sure to disable the address verification requirements inside your gateway.*
Zip Code (optional): This section can only be used for a United States zip code. If you are outside of the United States, please skip this section.
*Note: If you're using Paya, you won't be able to set the Box Office to zip code only. Paya requires a full address to allow payments to go through.

Payments not processing:
Check that you are connected to Wifi
Knowing the decline error message will help point us if it is our system, an issue with the gateway.
Check to make sure your page has the Credit Card Payment Method enabled. Transactions will not go through if you only have the Pre-Registration Payment Method present on the page.
