How to collect custom information from attendees at checkout?
Ticketstripe lets you collect whatever information from attendees you deem essential. Throwing a wine event? Ask your attendees what their wine preference is and let them choose between the options you will have available.
Are you serving a sit-down meal at your event? Customize your order form to know how many guests want the chicken, how many want the fish, and how many want the vegetarian option.
This short video will show you how to quickly add a custom field to the order form at checkout to obtain specific information per attendee. This is helpful when one person is placing the ticket order, but they are ordering for multiple people. Though this video only demonstrates adding one question and answer format, you are not limited to just one question per attendee. Ask as many as you need to personalize each attendee’s experience.
