Sign in to Adyen

Before you can sell tickets via Stager, you must register your organization with Adyen. You open a sub-merchant account directly via the Stager backstage. Go to Settings - Account - KYC and choose 'Create a merchant account'. Follow the steps of Adyen so that you can receive ticket funds.

Ticket types

You can create tickets for events by first entering your standard ticket info. You can set this up in Settings. For a quick start with ticket sales, just run through the steps below.

Go to Settings - Ticketing - Ticket types. Here you can create different types of tickets for your events; whether 'Regular', 'Guest', 'Locked', 'Membership' or 'Group ticket'. For more information about the various ticket types you can make, click here.

Under VAT % you enter the legally applicable VAT percentage for the type of activities for which the ticket is offered.

You can charge a service fee for sales via the web or at the door, which you set yourself, and will be added to the price of the tickets that you make in the event. It is also possible to charge a percentage fee, or a combination thereof. Service costs are separate from the price agreement you have made with Stager.

The Door & Online Fees, or service costs that you enter here include VAT.

Creating an event

You create a new event in Planning - Events. Click on 'Add new' at the top right or on '+ Add new event' on the day the event takes place. Fill in the Main tab as completely as you can and set the event to ‘Confirmed’. When an event has a status other than 'Confirmed', no tickets can be sold. After you save the screen, the other tabs appear, including Tickets.

Starting your ticket sales

Begin by filling in the Total number of tickets field. Once you have saved this number, choose the ticket types you want to sell, your selling price, and whether they will be sold in the ticket shop (Online) or at the door (Door). By clicking on Edit details, you can enter more specific information per ticket type.

Your tickets can now be sold!
