We have very much appreciated Purplepass they’ve been amazing to work with and very open-minded regarding our somewhat unconventional business. A member of their staff has always gotten back to us immediately when we’ve needed help. The interface is easy to use and posting new events is very simple. Highly recommended!

Popular ticketing features used for performing arts
Boca ticket printer
The Boca printer provides the most reliable, cost effective printing, eliminating the need for ink, toner and ribbons. Our printers are suited for all event needs such as printing labels, receipts, ID tags and anything else in high demand during your opening night.
Don’t limit yourself to a check-in desk. Staff and volunteers can go throughout lines and scan guests into the event, lasting up to 10 hours before needing a new battery.
USB credit card swipes
Everyone prefers a different form of payment. USB credit card swipes can be plugged into your computer port or used with your box office giving customers more payment options.
Coupon codes for special guests or performers
Design special promo codes artists, friends and family can use when purchasing tickets. Upon checkout, enter the promo code and they’ll receive a discount or COMP ticket. It’s up to you.
Make your event private or require a password
Some events want exclusivity, and if that’s the case, it’s easy to require guests to provide a password upon checkout or make it a hidden event. Private functions, meetings, lectures, student events.
Assigned seating maps
Most performing arts events require assigned seating for their guests. If that’s the case, we will build a seating map for you, free of charge, that supports anything from chairs to tables and booths.
By using tracking links, you can track all activity generated from your links through the Purplepass admin. Even use these links to track affiliates so you can see their sales and commission for that event. Just one less thing you have to worry about!
Manage guest lists
With your guest list you have access to stats, guest count, COMP tickets that were issued and dates of sales. Use this tool to keep everything on track and accounted for, while giving you an idea of your attendance and venue capacity.

What clients say
We are a small community theater and our initial ticketing platform was hosted on our own server. It worked fine at the beginning, but we started having many problems with it and it couldn't handle our ticketing load. So we started researching alternative ticketing solutions to implement. We tested around 10 different systems to determine what would work best for us. In the end, we chose Purplepass.
We needed to move from a reservation system to a ticketing service, while other companies made promises - Purplepass delivered. They have worked to create a system that fits our unique situation of handling 45 to 60 different performers in any given month. They listen to my needs, explain what can and can’t be done and then work creating solutions to make the system run as smooth as possible for me, the club, our performers and our patrons.
The customer service has been so great! I like the fact that I have been able to talk to the same rep every time and call them directly. It makes for such an easier time to solve for get all of my questions answered.
