Painless Setup and Configuration
- Handicap seating restrictions.
Handicap seating restrictions.Managing handicap seats, and ensuring that they are only purchased by specific families, can be a very time consuming and difficult task. If you'd prefer, our system can be customized so that prior approval is required before specific seats can be purchased, including handicap seats. You can also require that seats next to handicap spaces be purchased together.
- Variable max-hold time for the shopping cart.
Variable hold time for cart.The shopping cart can be configured to time out anywhere between 15 minutes to 2 hours. This helps push people through the purchase process and make it easier for many people to purchase tickets during the first hour's rush.
- Customized colors, logo, and background image.
Customized look.The entire seat selection and checkout process takes place on our servers so that you have nothing to install, but we use your colors, your background, and your logo so that people feel at home during the process.

Get Paid QuicklyWe understand that studios need their money to pay for expenses such as theatre deposits, costumes, music, and other bills. So, we don't wait until after the show to pay you! Instead, we pay you every week with a same-day direct deposit to your bank account on Thursdays. If you prefer a check, we can still send you one after the ticket sales are over. Never wait for your money again.
- Reserved seating for special needs families, staff, and VIPs.If you want to block off specific seats for families of special needs children, special guests and staff, or any other reason, our system will provide codes that you issue to the buyers to allow them to put these blocked seats into their carts.

Coupon Codes for Discounted and Free SeatsIf you've promised free seats, or have already accepted money for seats, you can issue any number of coupon codes for use during checkout. Simply have the system generate these codes using our easy-to-use administration tools and present these codes to the buyers for use during checkout. This is a perfect solution for studios who provide "free" tickets when families pay their recital fee.
- Customizable pricing for complicated pricing models.
Customizable PricingCustomizable pricing was a feature we added in 2014. If you have a complicated pricing scheme involving multiple shows, ticket thresholds, or whatever else you've dreamed up, our system can apply those discount automatically, or with the use of a coupon code.
