Features, Benefits and Customizations

Purplepass gives you all the right tools to customize your event while making it easier to manage. 

Sale Control: You can customize when particulate ticket types are available for sale. For example, let’s say you wanted to offer special early bird pricing only for the first week of ticket sales, you can set the early bird to automatically stop selling after 7 days have elapsed. Schools can set it and forget it, giving them more time to focus on other upcoming events and their students' needs. 

Multiple Ticket Types: You can create as many ticket options as you want–there is no limit. Create general admission, adult tickets, children tickets, military discounts, VIP tickets, early admission, parking, packages, season passes…you name it!

Student IDs as Coupon Codes:  You can create an unlimited number of coupon codes and discounts students, staff and parents can apply to their ticket when purchasing online. By using your student's ID as a coupon code, parents and relatives can get fast comp tickets online for free events such as graduations and ceremonies. 

Partner Access: You can grant access to your account to as many users as you wish. You have full control over exactly what the users can see and do, from setting view-only access to certain parts of the event to full view/edit privileges for every aspect of the event. This is a great features if you have volunteers running your events. 

Customize Verbiage: Not all events are just about selling tickets. Sometimes you are registering for school, signing up volunteers, purchasing school parking, attending lectures for extra credit, etc. You can customize the verbiage of the buying experience to match exactly what you are selling, leave notes and communicate clearly to your buyers online. 

These are just a few examples of the different features Purplepass can offer your school event. You can check out (click on the book cover) some of these school case studies to see the different tools they used for their events while using Purplepass.

Coupon Codes

For school events, there are usually a lot of discount opportunities per event such as student, alumni, military, VIP holders, band, etc. That is why it is a good thing Purplepass has a large selection of different coupon codes you can offer your guests. 

Single Codes: Single codes are discount/coupon codes you create one by one; there is no limit on how many codes you can create.

Auto-Generated Code: Have the system automatically generate the discount/coupon codes for you. You can control exactly how the codes will look by choosing how many characters, any pre-defined characters (e.g. “Save” in “SaveXXXXXX”) and if the codes should include lower case, upper case, and/or numbers.

Mass Upload Codes: If you already have a list of codes, you can batch upload them directly into your event as discount/coupon codes

Fixed discounts per transaction or per ticket, combo deals, and discount rates.


Tracking your codes is even easier. If you have other people promoting your event such as teachers or students, you can issue tracking-only codes for each person. The codes will not provide any discount but can track sales that came from them. This is a great way to manage a commission program for your affiliates and promoters.

You also have the option to apply certain restrictions to your codes such as the number of times they are used per customer, set expiration dates, or auto-trigger codes allowing your code to be automatically applied when a criteria is met.


Assigned Seating

Purplepass has a powerful assigned seating ticketing system that will give your guests the ability to select their seats from an interactive seating map, see the venue’s layout and choose their seats all on their own. This is great for relatives out of town who are unfamiliar with your seating layout and/or want to reserve seats by their family.

  • Graphically driven
  • Full Control to Build & Manage Maps

“Purplepass takes care of booking our student Massage Therapists so they can practice and frees us up so that we can teach. Massage clinics are key to getting our students the valuable practice they need while providing extremely affordable massage to the general public. But in the past teachers spent a lot of time booking appointments and processing them instead of teaching. PurplePass has taken care of all of that so our teachers can teach, our students can learn, and you can get a one-hour massage for just $10!”

– Michael Tapscott, Massage Therapy Instructor


“Purplepass has been awesome for our theatre performances over the last year. We had awesome shows with a professional, easy-to-use ticketing system which made our events more pleasant for everyone involved. Can’t wait to use PurplePass again for this year’s productions of Dracula, The Pajama Game, Treasure Island, and Brigadoon!”

Addison Walden, Teacher & Director at NFHS
