In the download section is a 36 pages counting document with every functionality described. So there is documentation. If you have contacted me, I sent you the link within a few hours.
Of course, there are a lot of companies that can offer this service, but all of them are commercial. They want at least a percentage of the ticket amount, which is not very friendly to our customers and we wanted to use this option for a non-profit event.
So we found the solution by using Ticketmaster in combination with CCiDEAL. Ticketmaster is very payable and you get a lot of options for that.
The support is excellent, you get answers of all your questions - and we asked a lot - in no-time.
We really liked the message center. This makes the extensions very useful because it’s possible to design the different views in your own look&feel very easy.
We worked with a handscanner and it works like a charm. When there’s no internet connection on the location and you work with an offline Joomla website (to be installed with MAMP for instance with a copy of the online database) we advise to use a Mac. On Windows the scanning won’t work correctly. This is not a bug in Ticketmaster but it looks like it’s a bug in Windows itself. (It took us a while to find this solution, hopefully it will save you a lot of time.)
If you look for a reservation system with a lot of options, in combination with Joomla, don’t hesitate, use Ticketmaster!
Also the author of the extension is on hand at the end of an email to iron out any issues you may have, or point you in the right direction of the documentation or advise.
This is how extensions should be, great at what they do with fantastic support backing it up.
I only gave this an Excellent rating because I could not give it more.
For that reason I can't give it better rating, as I've bought the extension expecting it to be ready-to-use and now I'm unable to use it properly as I require someone to design me the PDF before I can use it.
Thanks for your feedback. Every ticket needs a design, so it is pretty normal that you have to design your own ticket in a JPG or PDF that can be used by your event. We cannot make a default ticket that is suitable for everyone. If you experience issues, then please contact me. I am always able to help.
As for the extension, it's easy to use, covers a whole range of options and looks great on the frontend.
