For businesses of all sizes, the Shopify platform gives you the power to not only sell tickets to your event, but also sell accompanying merchandise. In this blog post, we will discuss how you can use Shopify + Evey to sell event tickets and merchandise in an easy, integrated process.
A Better Way
You’re selling event tickets. You’re selling event or brand merchandise. Do you want to streamline this experience and avoid dealing with multiple platforms, shopping carts, logins, payment methods, and different links for attendees to remember and manage? You don’t need to shuffle back and forth between Shopify for merchandise and another ticketing platform, like Eventbrite, for your tickets. That’s where Evey comes in. We are here to help unify the process and shopping experience for your attendees while also providing the opportunity to upsell at checkout. It’s a win-win!
