To see an example of how you might take a deposit using Ticket Tailor, check out our demo event.


For the ticket buyer, the finished event and ticket purchase would look something like this:

To create an event with split payments:

Create and style your event page. (For more detail on creating an event, please check out our getting started guide).

💡 It’s a nice idea to add links to the full payment event from the deposit event, and vice versa.

💡 It’s a nice idea to customise your buy ticket button to read something like ‘pay first instalment’.

From the ‘events’ page, use the three-dot menu to make copies of your event.

💡 You will want to make as many copies for your event as you want payment instalments. For example, if I want to offer full payment or a split payment, I will set one event up as Ticket Tailor poetry festival - full payment and day tickets event, one as the Ticket Tailor poetry festival - weekend instalment payment event, and one as the Ticket Tailor poetry festival - Final instalments event.

Edit your ticket types and quantities for each event.

💡 For the payment instalments, ensure you price the tickets according to the price you want the buyer to pay. For example, if your event is £100, and you want ticket buyers to pay a deposit of £25, the ticket on the Ticket Tailor poetry festival - full payment and day tickets event will be £100, the ticket on the Ticket Tailor poetry festival - weekend instalment payment event will be £25, and on the Ticket Tailor poetry festival - Final instalment event the ticket price will be £75.

Hide the Ticket Tailor poetry festival - Final instalment event from your box office, by expanding the advanced event settings and checking the ‘Hide this event from your box office listings and search engines’ check-box.

For the Ticket Tailor poetry festival - weekend instalment payment, customise the event specific order confirmation to remove the ticket voucher or online event link, so that your ticket buyers don’t get a ticket without paying.

Secondly, replace the ticket voucher or online event link in the Ticket Tailor poetry festival - weekend instalment payment order confirmation with a link to the Ticket Tailor poetry festival - Final instalment event.

💡 It can be useful to schedule a Broadcast linking to the second instalment event reminding ticket buyers about their due payment.
