My Tickets version 1.9.0 released

April 12, 2022

Topics: Plugins.

I released My Tickets version 1.9.0 today; the first major release for My Tickets in over three years. In reality, My Tickets has changed quite a lot since version 1.8.0 released in 2019; but it’s been mostly very slow and incremental, and without a lot of significant new features.

Though this release has a short changelog, a few of those changelog items are pretty significant in scope.

General Admission ticketing

Not everything you sell tickets for is an event with a fixed date and time. General Admissions adds support for ticketing experiences. Think of museum admissions, art galleries, or scenic events. These tickets are valid for a period of time following sale, but don’t belong to a fixed time event, and can be used anytime between purchase and their expiration.

Set a close date for a ticket type

Sometimes, you want to remove a particular type of ticket from availability during the sale process. My Tickets now supports an option to let a ticket type expire; so you can establish early bird pricing for those quick decision makers.

The `[my-payments]` shortcode.

If you’re selling a lot to a fixed set of users who can log-in to your site, this allows them to view their purchase history and access their tickets from their account. In future updates, it may also provide the ability to manage purchase – adding additional tickets, cancelling their attendance, or other management tools. Let me know what seems useful to you by making suggestions in the My Tickets Github repository.

  1. Hey, something strange. I did some fake buys of tickets.
    Person A buys a ticket offline : Ticket-A
    Person B buys a ticket offline : Ticket-B
    With different email addresses.
    When person A checks his ticket he also sees ticket B
    And the same for person B
    I don’t think this is the purpose of your shortcode.

  2. Hey Joe
    my-payments is great that was the thing I was waiting for. One remark we sell tickets with payment offline, so they are available after payment. But when I open the page with the overview of orders then the tickets can be downloaded immediately, I don’t think that is the meaning of your overview.
    Can you adapt this? offline payment only the summery of what you have ordered, fully payed summery and tickets.
    In your emails is this perfect.
    Thank you

  3. I love the plug in and use the free version as we are a non-profit organization. It would be really helpful if when you sell tickets on your site you could specify when ticket sales start and when they end. For example, be able to specify that ticket sales begin at noon June 15th and are closed at noon June 25th.
