Track event registrations, check-in attendees, scan barcodes to validate tickets, and gather event data with UNATION’s Check-In App.
It’s really easy.
To get started, you just have to join UNATION, which takes about a minute. Right now we are letting people join through the iPhone App, Android App or unation.com.
It’s really easy.
Again, really easy. Just tap the + on the bottom menu of the mobile Apps, or the + on the left hand menu of the desktop version. From there, just start editing the fields you would like to include in your event. It’s all in line and very easy to navigate.
As you input content when you are creating an event, one of the options as you scroll is “Add Ticket.” Just tap that button and you will be directed to fill out your ticket information, like price, promo codes, etc. Really couldn’t get much easier.
One thing however, you will have to link your bank account the first time (one time only) you try and create a ticket with a dollar amount. This is so we can pay you.
Each State has different laws regarding how sales tax is collected. The best way for you to handle any taxes you may owe for your sales is by working directly with a tax advisor. UNATION cannot tell you if you need to charge tax or how much you need to charge if you do. If you’re not sure if you might be responsible for taxes on your sales, your State’s department of revenue website is a good place to start learning more.
Absolutely! UNATION has no access to your bank account, it is done through Stripe, which is a secure payment processor. If you would like to learn more about Stripe, you can visit www.stripe.com.
To that point, you will have to set up an account with Stripe, which only takes a couple minutes. It’s free and easy as well. And as you earn money from your tickets, Stripe securely holds that money in your Stripe account and then releases funds to your Bank as often as every day that tickets are sold.
No need to worry about setting up a Stripe account now, we will link you to the Stripe sign up form when the time comes in the ticket creation process.
Yes, you can edit your bank account by signing into your account on stripe.com and clicking the “Balance” option on the left menu of your dashboard. Next, select “Settings” and from there you can edit your bank account information.
Not hard at all. In fact it is really easy and we pride ourselves on making this whole process as painless as possible for our users. If you can post on Facebook or write an email, you will have no problems understanding how to create an event and add a ticket on UNATION. The most advanced section is linking your Stripe account, but that too is pretty pain free. But if you would still like to see the exact steps — check out this link.
Again, really easy. If you create a public event then you will have a public URL that you can share. You can also invite people over email and share the event to all of your favorite social channels.
If it’s a private event, you will need to invite your guests over email and there will be a cookie attached to the link in their email that grants them permission to view the event, but they won’t have the ability to share.
As an added bonus, if you create a public event on UNATION and put that event into relevant categories, your event will be in front of all the UNATION users searching for things to do.
When a user on UNATION sets up their account to sell tickets for the first time, they will be asked to set up or link their Stripe account. Stripe is the payment portal linked to UNATION that processes all ticket transactions. Setting up or linking a Stripe account is a one time thing, simple to do, and can be done in less than 5 minutes. Stripe allows transactions in over 20 countries. To view the list of supported countries, you can click here.
If you have any other questions, you can email email@example.com
It’s free, and will always be free, to join and use UNATION.
Using UNATION, you can create both free events and charge admission to your events. When you create an event where you are charging people, there are two fees associated – Stripe charges 2.9% + 30 cents on the checkout price, while we charge a small flat fee per ticket depending on the ticket price that will never exceed $5.95:
Free Event –> No Fee
$1 ~ $34 –> $0.99*
$35 ~ $74 –> $1.95*
$75 ~ $124 –> $2.95*
$125 ~ $199 –> $3.95*
$200 ~ $249 –> $4.95*
$250 & UP –> $5.95*
*UNATION service fee per paid ticket
With UNATION, you can choose to pay one or both fees yourself, or pass the fees on to your customers with their ticket price. This can be adjusted during the event creation process.
In the example above, if the price for your event is $30 per ticket, UNATION’s service fee would be $0.99 per ticket, while the Stripe processing fee would be $1.23 per ticket (2.9% of $30 + 30 cents). If you then chose to pass both of these fees onto your customers, they would pay $32.22 ($30 + $1.32 + $0.99) and you would make $30 per ticket.
On the other hand, if you chose to not pass on the fees and pay both fees yourself, your customers would pay $30 and you would make $27.81 ($30 – $1.23 – $0.99) per ticket sold.
Feel free to play around with these numbers during the ticket creation, the calculator will change accordingly!
Before you can begin accepting money, we need to know two things:
1) Who is receiving the money (legal name not just display name)
2) Where the money is being sent (your bank account)
Contact Information: This Contact Information needs to be the legal name and email address of the individual who will be receiving the money. This is for your protection as well as ours. NOTE: This is NOT the same as the event contact. When you create your event, you will have the opportunity to enter a different contact name for the event itself.
Billing Information: UNATION is not a bank and we do not want to be in the business of holding your money. We don’t even want to see it! We let our Secure Payment partners do that for us. Right now we are using only one partner: STRIPE (more to come)
If you have an account already, all you need to do is link your account to your UNATION account. This is quick and easy. You will be prompted to do this when you begin to create a non-free ticket level inside an event. Follow the instructions to log in and link your account. That’s it. You’re ready to create and sell event tickets!
If you don’t have an account with Stripe, you will need to sign up for one to make sure your money and information is kept safe and secure. Creating an account is easy, just make sure that you have your banking information handy.
