Showpass overview

Showpass is an online ticketing platform that helps event organizers in North America to sell more tickets, merchandise and manage sales, check-ins, guest lists, stats and more from the palm of their hand. With Showpass, event-goers can find the latest events, buy tickets and get in quickly—right from their phone. Users can set up and sell tickets in minutes, send email and SMS marketing communications, and use M-commerce checkout with the Facebook Official Events integration. Showpass also enables Wordpress, Squarespace and custom site white label ticketing.

When creating an event in Showpass, users can include a description and photos, enter the location, date and time of the event, and configure ticket sales. Users can also sell items online before the event such as food, beverages, ‘Skip-The-Line’ and merchandise. Attendees can get a glimpse of the event’s seating layout and choose where they want to sit, and event organizers can offer variable pricing, as well as season tickets. With mobile check-in features, users can turn any smartphone into a ticket scanner and take payments securely at the door via the Showpass mobile app for Android and iOS. Showpass automatically tracks all sales and commissions, and enables users to restrict cash sales by individual. Organizers are also provided with various features for RFID scanning, as well as gate scanners which enable event-goers to self-scan their ticket’s QR code.

Event organizers love the Facebook integration, which verifies the event’s talent, and share’s the event to their followers. In addition to growing their reach, it also allows ticket buyers to buy tickets and merchandise in as little as two clicks. No account set up needed, allowing those impulse buys to happen without a second thought.

The solution includes co-branded marketing which allows event organizations to publish their event on the Showpass website, along with emails and social media, meaning their event gets shared with tens of thousands of ticket purchasers. Event organizers can keep their guests in-the-know about upcoming shows, early-bird tickets, and special events with Campaign Monitor, an email tool that comes with the Showpass package. With drag-and-drop templates, creating an email is simple and helps generates ticket sales. Real-time metrics inform event organizers on gate stats and which attendees scanned in. Sales tracking features tell users exactly who their biggest promoters are, and link tracking and reports show users where to focus their sales efforts for events. Showpass also includes features for inventory tracking with real-time ticket sale tracking availability and event analytics.

We've tried many different ticket companies for our events in the past and Showpass is by far the best with the greatest customer support. The software is constantly evolving and progressing which we love. The team listens to our feedback and we often see the response to that feedback integrated into the software shortly after.
