1. CREATE YOUR EVENT
Click on Create Event and fill out all information:
Title: Choose a title for your event. Do not use CAPITAL letters in the tittle.
Event time: define the duration of the event.
Be careful! If, for example, your event is on Friday night to Saturday night, you should set the start time to 23.59 on Friday. It is a common mistake to put 00.00, which would indicate that the event starts at 00.00 am on Friday, i.e. the night from Thursday to Friday.
Click Continue and fill in all the required information:

Tickets: When creating your tickets you can add their price, description and other details such as how long they will remain available or the number of tickets at a given price.

By default, all your Offers will be made public to all customers and users, but you can refine the visibilities, just by clicking on Advanced Settings, which is at the bottom left of the Offer.
Tip: You can also add the description of your Offers in the different languages we have available, just as you have done in the Event Description:
2.2 Public Mode
If an offer is set to Public, it will appear online, in the event link, your website (in case you have our Widget installed) and any promoter-sales channel link.
You can also define when the sale of the Tickets / Guest Lists will start and end.
When the last tickets on sale are no longer on sale, you will receive a recap email with all the sales information.
2.3 Private Mode:
When you make a ticket or special offer private, you choose to share it only with specific people or groups.
When you click on Advanced Settings at the bottom left, you will see several visibility options appear, such as the "Sales Channels" option where you can assign a specific number of tickets/list for each sales channel or promoter.
If you do it in Import Only mode, only the promoter will be able to see that offer and add customers when logged into Nightgraph, but it will not be able to be purchased directly online.
If you want the tickets to be limited to certain promoters, but still be available for purchase online, you should set it to "On Sale" visibility.
2.4 Sold Out Mode
When the sales of a Ticket or Guest List reach your maximum cap or time, they will show up automatically as Sold Out. You can also set a Sold Out manually.
2.5 Hidden Mode
Put your Guest List or Ticket in Hidden if you want to hide the promotion from all channels

This code must be entered by the end customer if he/she wants to benefit from this price.
At the public event, this special offer will appear, available for purchase by the buyer.
4. DOWN PAYMENTS
Most tables and VIP areas are quite expensive, and you might prefer to get part of the payment at the reservation and the other part at the door. Here is how you can set them up
4.1 Create a down payment on Nightgraph
Create your VIP/Bottle Service offer as usually by clicking on offers -> Create admissions - > Bottle Service
Set up the name, color, size, availability, description and total price of your offer and in the bottom left corner click on "accept down payments"
Set the down payment value you wish to charge the client, and therefore what they will need to pay at the door. In this case the price is €100 and the down payment of €20 meaning the client will pay €80 at the door
At the end, make sure you click on create
Your client's tickets will be specific on the conditions. Here is an example of what a PDF would look like:
At the door, you can use the app to scan the tickets. This will show up:
Green means the tickets are valid, but as you can see in yellow, there are still €625 to pay.
When clicking on the yellow area saying €625 you will have the option to confirm the client has paid the remaining balance:
Click confirm. Now the tickets are fully paid for and check in:
Once you have finished, you can save your event as a draft or publish it directly.
Congratulations, your event has started!
