How-to: Will Call
Have you ever noticed how the world seems to open up with just a swipe of a credit card? Plane flight to Europe — swipe. New Macbook — swipe. You can even swipe your card at parking meters these days.
Well, don’t ever accuse us of being behind the technological times. When you run your event through Eventopia, customers will get through the doors faster thanks to our online system–without needing a paper ticket. All they have to do is bring their credit card. One swipe and their ticket information is at your fingertips.

You will see the purchase history appear on your screen. If a purchase does not appear, you can also search for the name associated with the purchase (see the image below: a search for “Elaine” returned the purchase information of “Elaine Benes.” You can now select her tickets).
