If you are hosting an event, your Wix template provides the ability to promote the event, while monitoring the number of guests, adding as much detail as you wish.
There are two ways to create or edit an event. One way is by choosing Select Site when in My Sites.
Another way to access this, selecting Manage Event from the floating menu when editing the home page.
Regardless of which option you choose to navigate, you will then arrive at the website’s dashboard. You will then need to ensure that you select Events from the main menu on the left-hand side.
Here you will be able to view published events, drafts, and categories. Categories allow you to organize events making it easy for visitors to easily identify which event is of most interest to them.
Note: If you navigated here through by selecting Manage Events, you will automatically arrive at the Events menu.
When adding a new event, a pop-up window will appear prompting you to complete preliminary information such as whether or not the event is ticketed or RSVP. Once the relevant fields have been completed, select Create Event.
You will then arrive at the events page, this is where you will be able to add further customized information about the event.
While some of the event details will be pre-populated based on the information provided in the preliminary pop-up window. You will be able to add further details such as adding a cover image for the event and building an event schedule. Once you are satisfied with the details, select either Save Draft or Save & Publish.
If you chose to have a ticketed event, you will need to ensure that you have added a payment method. Information about how to do this can be found here.
You will be able to create multiple tickets (e.g. Adult, Concession and Child). If the event is seated, you can also create a seating map based on either rows, tables or a customized map.
When completing the ticket information, you can choose whether a price is charged or if it is free. Additionally, you can choose if an unlimited or a limited number of tickets are available while also adding a ticket sale period.
In order to proceed, select Save.
Note: A service fee will be charged by Wix for each ticket solved. You can choose whether to absorb this fee or pass this on to the buyer. Further information can be found here.
Once the ticket has been saved, it will then appear under the relevant menu along with a range of options including the ability to add another ticket or to create a coupon such as an early bird discount.
The registration details allow you to to choose how guests register for the event (Wix Events registration page or On a different page or web address).
You can also create custom fields for any additional information you would like to collect. These will appear on the form when guests are registering for the event. Policies such as Terms and Conditions or Refund policies can also be displayed.
Setting a registration message will enable an automated message to appear if tickets become unavailable.
Automated emails can be created to update you once a guest RSVPs to the event, emails can also be sent to let guests know that their spot is confirmed while also sending a reminder for upcoming events. Invoices and customized automated emails can also be created
We recommend reviewing the event details (these can also be edited at any time). When you are satisfied with these, navigate back to Event details tab and select Save & Publish.
Orders and Guest list
Once the event is published, you can track and manage orders and guest numbers once tickets are purchased.
Viewing and Editing the Event
When published, the event will appear in the website dashboard and also on the home page and events page of the website. You can edit this by selecting edit whilst in the website dashboard.
