Designed to offer more options with greater flexibility
SAN DIEGO, October 11, 2018 — Events.com, a leading global event management platform, today announced it has introduced several new features to the existing Events.com platform. The new features are designed to give event organizers and attendees even greater flexibility with managing their events and purchases.
“These new features are the result of customer feedback, user testing, and market research,” said Melody Shin, Director of Product at Events.com. “We’ve fine-tuned each one to give our organizers and attendees more flexibility in how they use the platform, regardless of the type of event. They’re designed to be convenient, easy to use, and effective–we’re very excited to roll them out.”
Users can access the new features by logging into their Events.com account.
Payment Installments: Event participants now have more options in how they pay for their registration or ticket. Organizers turn on or off this feature and give attendees the option to pay their order in full or split it into installments. The organizer can set a date for the final payment to be automatically charged and optionally add a payment installment fee. In addition, attendees can update their credit card before the final payment is made. Augmented reporting capabilities give organizers the ability to track installments.
Improved Giving Tools: Organizers can further customize fundraising and donation tools. They can add messaging to better communicate to attendees the “what” and “why” behind their fundraising efforts in order to drive donations and encourage participant fundraising.
Attendee Number Tool: Organizers can assign specific numbers to attendees. This functionality works for events of any kind––bib numbers for endurance races, seat numbers for shows/performances, attendee numbers for conferences, etc. Should an attendee cancel, their assigned number will be put back into rotation and re-assigned.
