Reserved Seating: Get Started

The first step to begin setting up your reserved seating event is to create a new event. As you complete all the steps of the set up process be sure to select reserved seating when you select they seating option. Once you have selected the reserved seating option create a new venue location in the pull down menu.

Complete the remaining steps of the set up process and click “finish”. Once you click finish a message will appear informing you to contact our friendly customer support team to finish setting up reserved seating for your venue. You will also receive an email notifying to contact customer support to move forward with your reserved seating event. This process is free and normally takes only 2-3 business days before you can start selling tickets. During this period your event will remain paused.

Once customer support finishes setting up your venue you will be able to continue on with setting up the reserved seating for your event. When customer support has finished setting up your venue you can log on to Ticket River. The following message will appear on your reserved seating event asking you to map all ticket types for your event.

Important to note: Once you have started ticket sales and sold tickets to your event you will not be able to edit the venue information. We recommend double checking your venue information before proceeding. Before mapping your ticket types we recommend double checking your venue information.
