As we were gearing up to organize WordCamp Las Vegas 2010, we wanted to move the management of the ticket ordering process in-house. One of the main reasons being we didn’t want to pay a third party site to handle the ticket sales for the event since they charge per ticket. Sure, we could have passed the cost on to the ticket buyer, but that’s just not how we roll! Instead, we got to work building a WordPress plugin; WP Event Ticketing.
If you are the impatient type, you can download WP Event Ticketing and try it out, or read on for a list of features and screenshots.
WP Event Ticketing Features
- Real-time payments via Papal
- Multiple ticket types. (For example, basic ticket includes entry only, gold ticket includes entry plus a shirt.)
