If you would like a seating map to be created, please email us at support@eventfinda.com.au and we will be in touch within 3 business days. There will be an additional one-off minimum fee of $100 per map, which may increase depending on the complexity of your requirements, in which case we will quote the fee upfront. Please note that seating maps can take up to 15 business days to be processed.


Create ticket types and set Booking Fees

Enter your ticket details including ticket name, capacity, booking fee and price.


With TixSuite you can set a unique booking fee for each ticket type or apply the same fee across all tickets. The fee amount can be set at your discretion, ranging from charging zero booking fees to an amount that covers your expenses or more. Rest assured, all booking fees are yours to keep.


​​To cover your TixSuite monthly or annual Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) fees, you can choose to incorporate them into your booking fee. Simply divide your TixSuite fee by your expected monthly ticket sales and adjust your Booking Fee accordingly.


Top tips:

  • Set the overall capacity in the session(s)

  • Set the individual ticket capacities on the tickets

  • Include age descriptions on Child, Concession, Senior, or similar ticket types

Do not:

  • Type in ALLCAPS

  • Use emojis

  • Repeat event name or the dates, times, venue, acts/entertainment in the ticket titles or description

Click on the Save Ticket Type button.

Setting up Multi-tickets types

If you wish to create a Multi-ticket e.g. a Family Ticket or a Table of Six, simply select it from the dropdown.


Select the Multi-ticket Quantity in the next dropdown.


  • For example, Family Ticket (2 adults, 2 children) select 4.

You must then ensure that your Minimum Purchase Quantity is set correctly for your Multi-ticket option.


  • For example, for a Family Ticket (2 adults, 2 children) the minimum purchase should be set to 4 or for a Table of Six Multi-ticket, select 6 in Minimum Purchase Quantity dropdown.

Maximum Purchase Quantity restricts the amount of that ticket type available for sale


  • For example, if set to 20 then you there will only be a total of 20 Family Tickets available for sale which would be 80 ticketholders attending your event under that ticket type.

Please ensure that the Ticket Price Per Person entered is multiplies of the total cost of your Multi-ticket.


  • For example, if your Family ticket costs $100, the Ticket Price Per Person should be set at $25. This ensures that each of the four ticketholders attending your event are counted in your capacity per session.

Also, ensure that you enter your desired Booking Fees amount.


Confirm ticket setup

Confirm your event's session and ticketing details in the next screen.
