Reviews

Finally, this is the plugin i’ve been waiting for!

I’ve been waiting for this plugin for such a long time, until now earning commission from ticket sales through my website required a lot of manual upkeep – hours and hours spent manually adding new content and maintaining affiliate links.

Not any more, this plugin makes it simple to import ticketed events from tons of sources, and it took me just a few moments to set up – thank you!!!

It looks great and has plenty of controls so you can choose what you’re selling – especially useful to me as i run several niche sites.

The best part is, once it’s running – it keeps itself updated – no more manual updates to content or links! Wooop woop!
