This is any name/ label that you will be on your ticket purchase web page. For example type in ‘bookfair2015’ here if your desired ticket URL is https://www.o-tix.com/bookfair2015. The system will perform an availability check for your desired URL.
4. EMBED REGISTRATION AND TICKET PURCHASE FORM
This feature enables you to make your users/attendees purchase tickets from your website. You can embed the entire Ticket Purchase / Registration and Purchase Form on your website (please provide the code to your website content manager/developer and ask them to embed it in the appropriate section of your website). To do so you need to copy paste the code that is randomly generated into your own website to enable registrations and ticket purchase in an iFrame (see above screenshot). This feature can help you gain publicity and can be a good marketing platform.
NOTE: That the form will only be active once you have launched the event.
Click “Save and Launch”. This will publish your event. You can view the Dashboard to see ticket sales, customer data etc.
