Postponing your Event?

When a customer buys a ticket to an event and it is either cancelled or has a major change (such as a headlining act will not perform, the date changes or the venue changes to a location considerably further away), the customer is entitled to a refund of the ticket. By law as the organiser you are required to do so, Even if the terms and conditions conflict with it.
We can facilitate this through our system using the Notify Ticket Holder function. This allows you to send a message from the organiser to all ticket holders for that event. In this message, the ticket holders are informed of the postponement and advise on:
  • how to hold onto their tickets for the next date,
  • how to obtain a refund if required. This message is customisable to your own wording
An example of how you can email your customer is below:

"Hello Cancellations, postponements and refunds,

Unfortunately due to _______ we have had to postpone our event, we are hoping to go ahead in the near future but at this stage, a date has not been chosen.
We thank all of our ticket holders for your ongoing support and we will keep you up to date with any news on our new date!
However, we understand some of our ticket holders may like a refund for your tickets.

To receive a full refund please reply to this email with the following details

And the team will process a refund for you. Generally, refunds can take 5-14 business days to be processed by the banks. If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to contact us.
