Tiqets offers partners an easy-to-implement widget whereby website visitors are immediately shown the availability calendar for the product. Use the widget in a sidebar, or adjacent to your core content, to drive your visitors to purchase tickets for a particular ticket option
Adding the widget to your website
The code snippet is very small, straightforward, and easy to use.
The widget data parameters (that means everything within the <div> tag) can be defined once or multiple times on a single page. Defining the parameters multiple times would result in multiple widgets being shown.
The loader (that means everything within the <script> tag) is generic and should only be included once, irrespective of the number of times the widget is to be shown.
Size of the widget
There are two different widget layouts to choose from. The ‘full’ layout shows a calendar with all dates of the current month. The ‘compact’ layout shows the next three days only and has a significantly smaller height than the ‘full’ layout.
The widget’s height may vary based to the information shown for each product. If the content in the widget changes, it will automatically resize itself.
Generating Availability widget code from the portal
User defined values
Sometimes products become unavailable on Tiqets. When a product is unavailable, the widget cannot show any calendar with availability.
In this case, the Availability Widget shows a notification mentioning the temporary unavailability and if available it also displays some alternative products that are potentially interesting for the user.
When a product becomes temporarily unavailable, e.g. due to a technical issue, it usually becomes available again after a couple of hours or days.
Therefore, it is not necessary to remove the Availability Widget immediately when you see an unavailable product.
In some cases, products become permanently unavailable, e.g. if a venue closes down indefinitely. Should you observe a product being unavailable for some time, please reach out to your Tiqets account manager for assistance handling the case.
If you have any questions or feedback, please contact your Tiqets account manager who can provide you with more assistance.
