Drive revenue and create patron loyalty with subscription packages

Our Box Office Portal makes it easy to sell and redeem subscriptions in person, over the phone, or even on the night of the event when ticket buyers are most engaged. Keep your patrons coming back for more and build loyalty with subscription packages.

Product Category FAQs

Can I charge different ticket prices for separate seat locations?

You sure can! With our Reserved Seating functionality, you can create ticket types by section and within each section as well. With On The Stage you can create offerings that are as simple or complex as you want them to be.

Can I use OTS to sell tickets for a non-theatrical event?

Yes. Our site templates work intuitively for theatre productions, musical concerts, dance recitals, award shows, and camp/class registration. We also work with Dance/Prom committees, Special Events, Sporting Events, Cheer/Dance/Color Guard Competitions, and much more.

Can I offer comp tickets and other discounts through On The Stage?

Of course. In addition to standard comp tickets, with On The Stage, you can create as many discount codes as you need, for whatever application you can think of.

Can my company offer paper tickets with On The Stage?

Yes, you can offer and accept paper tickets. However, current trends show ticketing headed in a completely digital direction—and with our paperless system, On The Stage is ahead of the curve. Patrons are provided with a confirmation email with QR Codes for each ticket that can be scanned once they arrive at the theatre. 

Of course, patrons are welcome to print their confirmation email or QR Codes and bring that to the venue for check-in, but it is optional and can be done from their mobile device. 

Does my company need to buy or rent a ticket scanner or printer?

No! Our Box Office Portal is designed to be quick and easy, with no need to purchase additional devices. Front of House staff can use any wifi enabled device with a camera (phone, iPod, tablet, laptop, etc.) to scan tickets with QR Codes when they enter the theatre. Patrons check in at the venue by sharing the QR Code in their order confirmation email.

Do I need a chip reader to process credit card sales?

No. Our Box Office Portal allows you to process credit card transactions on any device without a chip reader.

How are refunds and exchanges processed?

On The Stage is built to work for you. Our website builder includes a customizable field for your organization’s specific Refunds and Exchanges Policy, so no matter how you choose to handle these circumstances, your patrons will be fully informed before they make their purchase.

If you choose to offer refunds and/or exchanges for ticket purchases, please note that On The Stage does not process these transactions, however, our Customer Support team is available to walk you through the necessary steps if you need assistance.

How do I make sure our Box Office reports include cash sales? 

To ensure that all reporting is complete and accurate, use our Box Office Portal to process all cash or check transactions. The Box Office Portal is optimized for your mobile device, so cash and credit card sales are quick and easy no matter where or when they take place.

What if our Wifi goes out on the day of the show?

The On The Stage Box Office Portal and live Check-In List are optimized for use on a smartphone, tablet, or laptop. If you have spotty wifi, you can use your smartphone to process sales and check patrons in at the door, or use it as a hotspot to connect to other devices.

If you don’t have access to a smartphone, turn off ticket sales two hours before your event and print out the Check-In List so that you have the most up-to-date list of patrons available for manual check-in.
