StageShow adds the facility for an online Box-Office for Small Theatres/Drama Groups, records sales, validates tickets and provides sales downloads.
We have been using StageShow+ for over a year now. Over that time, new features have made our life easier. The developer has been very attentive to our needs, included some of our suggestions in the plugin and promptly fixed the occasional bug that popped up.
As a regular business we knew we needed a PayPal Merchant account, so this part of the setup was expected, easy and free. Our ticket sales do not require a seating plan so the free version suited our purposes. It was very easy to setup and use AND it has worked flawlessly from the first attempt. We decided to upgrade so that we could control our site's branding and advertizing, and have our calendar of events stretch further into the future.
We also found it very easy to style and customize.
I tested a number of plugins before finding this perfect solution for my client's needs. I only wish I had found it earlier. It works smoothly, does everything we needed to sell tickets for a benefit event for a small school.
It should show up at the top of the plugin search for event managers. This is first rate.
I don't want to use paypal. This don't working without paypal account
Basic version works perfectly out of the box. Yes, you have to setup a paypal merchant account and get some settings from paypal, BUT - that's FREE to do!! We wanted a simple system at our Church to sell performance tickets for a show and this worked really well. You can add your own images to the paypal screen to make it appear more seamless and the follow up email the user receives after payment is great. I was particularly impressed with the 'checkout' timeout feature. I thought we would be inundated with spam/fake bookings stopping at the checkout but this plugin takes care of that, so the only logs you end up seeing are genuine purchases.
Keep up the good work with this plugin!! ;-)
C'mon, one needs to first set PayPal Merchant account details. Who has those to start? Simple PayPal integration would be a good start. Then one cannot create a seating setup, only in PRO we are told.. so what can you do? Not nuch, you can create a "show" ohh, great.. I can do that right now on any of my WP pages, type in "show" put a paypal button code on it and its done, so wated my time here...
I'm in charge of the website for a school musical and this plugin solved all of our problems. The basic version is free and it does everything we need. It was super simple to setup and when I did have an issue the dev was quick to respond to fix it.
Have to agree with what others have said. StageShow+ works. It is simple to use and the support is the best. Malcolm is quick to respond, comes up with the solutions to problems and often incorporates those solutions into future release. Would recommend this to any group wishing to sell tickets from their site.
This is a brilliant plugin for ticket sales. And the support couldn't be better in my opinion. Stageshow+ is highly recommended.
With well known plus-size model Sabine Gruchet we run an In front of the camera - model workshops. We needed a simple and easy to use payment plugin. Other e-commerce plugins we tried where probably better suited to selling products and, found that most were not suitable with the responsive design on our website.
Where as StageShow provides a simple online booking function and works well within the responsive design of the site.
Additionally, not only does this plugin function and work well for our needs we also received excellent support.
