Billetto has released an improved ticket widget in order to offer you a better experience when selling tickets on your site/blog.
There are four types of widgets to choose from:
A single-button widget allows you to add a button to your website. When a ticket buyer clicks the button, they will trigger a Billetto pop-up window where they will be able to complete the purchase while staying on your website.
You will find the code to put on your website just on the side of the widget preview. This is ideal if you want to have full control over the look of your website but need to add a ticket check-out option to it. This can be found under the Marketing > Ticket Widget section of the ''manage'' page.
Single event widget
Another option is to add a list of tickets available for your event as a widget on your site. This widget is available if you have a standard (not recurring) event on Billetto.
Just like the single button widget, you can find the code for the single event widget just next to the widget element in the Marketing > Widget section of the ''manage'' event page.
Recurring event widget
A recurring event widget is available on your recurring Billetto events. It displays a calendar with the dates available for your event. The ticket buyer then can select the date and the time they wish to purchase the tickets.
You can find the code for the recurring event just next to the widget preview in the Marketing > Widget section of the ''manage'' event page.
An account widget is a great option when you want to show all your events on your website. It is also available in a few different views, such as a calendar, a list, and a button.
You can copy the code just above the widget preview. This widget can be found in the Promote (top navigation) > Widget section.
Customise your widget
Colouring: Billetto widgets are now available in light and dark themes, as well as you can change the color of the button and elements. Please note that if you change the colour to something that's unreadable Billetto will automatically swap the colours and default to blue.
Hide Image: Remove the event banner from the widget
White Label: Remove the Billetto branding.
Show Private Events: If you wish to include your private events within your widget selection
Sell directly on your website: (Enabled by default) - When disabled clicking get tickets will take the user to the Event Page on Billetto's website. When enabled, the user will be able to purchase from your website.
Embedding the widget on Squarespace, Wordpress.org or Wordpress.com
To embed the new widget on your Squarespace website:
1. Use the "Embed" element & click the "</>" symbol.
2. Paste the code in the window that pops up & click "Set".
3. Apply the element & publish the changes.
You cannot see the widget on the element preview on Squarespace, so check it on the live page.
To embed the widget on the Wordpress.org website:
1. Add a new widget to the section where you would like to add tickets to
2. Choose "Custom HTML" widget type
3. Publish the update to your site.
The current widget is not supported by Wordpress.com. This is due to the fact the custom script is not supported by this service.
If you're using Wordpress.com to host your website/blog, we'd recommend creating a custom button and linking directly to the Billetto ticket purchase page.
Embedding widget in Wix single event
In Wix under Edit website (Wix Website editor) follow these steps:
- Click Add in the top left (Add in the top left);
