Step 4- Enter the URL for the virtual event of the streaming service that you are using next to the date and time for the virtual event. Zoom, Facebook and Youtube are the only platforms supported through this integration.  If you do not yet know the URL, don't worry! You can add it later on after saving or publishing the event. Please note, you can add a different URL for every date of your event.

Complete Step 5 with the necessary information and hit Save As Draft or Publish Event. 

After you've created the event we recommend removing the option to have buyers print tickets for your event.

To do this, Please visit the the event home and then click on the Details tab.

When editing the ticket type it's recommended to enter a brief description of the ticket under more info and change the check-in option to reservation only. This is not required but is strongly recommended since you won't be physically scanning tickets for your event. When you're done editing click Save Changes.

Please note the buyer will have buttons to click, on their confirmation page and in the confirmation email after they've completed an order to access the event through the streaming URL you've provided.
