What is a group?
We understand that groups, communities and even fan clubs form organically when people come together for shared experiences at events on Peatix. Interactions within these circles may happen before, or long after, an event. With groups, it is our hope that we can facilitate these interactions more seamlessly. Create your group based on the contents of the events and the attendees.
Creating your group
1．Get started by creating a new Peatix account, or using your Facebook, Twitter, Google or Apple account to log in.
2．Click "Let's begin!" to start creating your group.
If you are asked to verify your account email address, please follow the steps here.
3．The Create a Group page is shown.
On your group page you can:
- add a logo (size: 80 x 80px)
- add a cover image (size: 960 x 240px)
- add a Vimeo or YouTube video
- add a group description (try to be descriptive to encourage people to join your group)
- set a custom URL to your group page (an underscore " _ " , slash " / ", and dot " . " cannot be used in your custom URL)
Click "Create Group!" to create your group.
* Peatix users can become followers of your group from the event page, or when ordering tickets to your event. Followers will receive notification emails when you publish a new event, and your events will be displayed in the recommended event list in the Peatix app.
* It is possible to create multiple groups in your account, and you will be able to host events in each group.
How to create an event
After you have created your group, you can start creating your event.
Start by registering the event name, date and time.
To change the country of the event, click the country name under the event start time and select the country from the drop-down menu. The currency of ticket will automatically be set based on the country of the event. Please note that you will not be able to change the country after publishing the event.
If you are going to hold a physical event, select "Physical event" under "Event Type".
If you have selected "Physical event", you will be prompted to enter a venue name in the "Venue" field. A venue address and map will appear when the venue name is registered correctly.
It is also possible to create an online event on Peatix by selecting "Online event" under "Event Type".
1. Next, create tickets for your event. You can choose "Paid Ticket", "Free Ticket" or "No Ticket".
Enter the ticket name, ticket price (paid tickets only), and the number of available tickets.
* You can create multiple tickets.
* After you have created a ticket, you cannot change the ticket name or price. If you wish to edit the ticket, please delete the already created ticket and create a new ticket. (However, if the tickets have been sold, you will not be able to delete the ticket.)
* If your event doesn't require registration, please select "No Ticket".
2. You can change the order of the tickets by dragging the arrows.
(You can sort up to 31 ticket types)
3. From the Settings button you can check the settings of each ticket.
You can set a ticket sales start date or ticket sales cutoff time for a ticket category (e.g., for creating Early Bird tickets). Please see How to set the ticket sales period for more information.
It is also possible to create discount codes for your tickets.
4. Check Advanced settings of the tickets.
Stop all ticket sales
By default, all ticket tickets sales will stop at starting time of the event. You can change the cutoff if you wish to stop the ticket sales at a different moment.
Please see How to set the ticket sales period for more information.
Max tickets per ticket type
By default, the number of tickets (for each ticket type) that can be purchased per order is set to 6 tickets. By changing the maximum number of tickets per order, you can limit or increase the number of tickets that can be purchased per order.
Please contact us in the following cases:
1．If you have multiple ticket categories, and you wish to set a different ticket purchase limit for each ticket category.
2．If you have multiple ticket categories, and you wish to set a ticket purchase limit for the total of tickets that can be purchased per order.
The available payment methods differ from countries. Depending on the country, it is possible to disable some payment methods. It is not possible to edit the payment methods after you have published the event page.
Ticket transfer feature allows ticket buyer to transfer tickets to a friend by themselves. When the setting is unchecked, ticket buyer will not be able to transfer tickets regardless of the amount of tickets ordered. For more details, check this help page: About the transfer feature.
