To sell tickets to an event directly from your nation, first create a new donation page which will be used to sell tickets to your event.
Next, create and configure a new event page. When on Event details, check "Sell tickets" and select the donation page and donation tracking code you just configured. We recommend you create a tracking code in the Event settings page, you'll be able to clearly track who has purchased tickets, how many, and how much money you've raised. Then click on Advanced under Event details, and specify a tag for RSVPs. Finally, click Tickets to configure your ticket levels.
Later, you will be able to pull a lists or target everyone who RSVP'd for an email blast by using the RSVP tag you specified, and you can get a detailed breakdown of ticket purchases on the Finances page by selecting the tracking code you created. You can print a list of everyone who purchased a ticket to verify people at the door by clicking the RSVP button while editing your event page.
RSVPs will receive both an RSVP confirmation and donation receipt email. You can configure both of these emails on the donation and event autoresponse page respectively.
Alternatively, you can accept RSVPs for your event and send people to a third party website to purchase tickets. To do this, do not check the box next to Sell tickets in Event details, then on the Tickets page, indicate the URL to direct people to purchase tickets.

Ben Kempas commented 2013-11-15 02:23:45 -0800There is a bit of a problem with this chain of event and payment page, as upon completion of payment, the suggested face-tweet will link to the payment page (with no ticket information) rather than the event page. Needless to say, we want people to face-tweet the event link, of course!
Ian Patrick Hines commented 2013-10-18 14:26:41 -0700Hillary — It’s possible to have an event that doesn’t require a ticket (that just allows folks to RSVP), but not to have a $0 ticket.
Hillary Kane commented 2013-10-18 07:19:06 -0700Can I set up an event with a “sliding scale” ticket price including $0?
Ian Patrick Hines commented 2013-09-25 14:49:29 -0700Thomas — I would recommend you chain your event RSVP page to a survey page, as is described in this FAQ: http://nationbuilder.com/how_do_i_collect_detailed_data_from_people
Thomas Burke commented 2013-09-25 12:26:34 -0700Is it possible to add a question to the ticket sale? We are having a ticketed event and would like to know if they have are vegetarian or if they have access needs.
Murray Munro commented 2013-09-24 18:20:53 -0700If ticket sales and memberships are not tax deductible then how can we change the receipt so it does not display that it is tax deductible? There is only one universal setting to control this.
