Events begin with their registration page. It’s where attendees can see the event details, contact info, and price for admission. In that sense, the registration page isn’t just a static poster, but a marketing tool that converts viewers into paying attendees. If it’s difficult to use or designed poorly, it fails its purpose.

Picatic is designed to help you make an easy-to-use registration page for your next event in 5 minutes. From setting up registration to accepting payments, Picatic centralizes your ticket management activities so that you waste no time promoting your event, tracking ticket sales, and selling out till you reach a full house.

Picatic’s event page creator lets you preview your event page as you design it. From the sidebar menu, you can enter the event details, customize the event URL, and add the event’s location and duration. Under Design you can upload a cover image and your organization’s logo so it fits the brand. As you continue to add details, you can toggle the event preview so you can see the page from the attendee’s perspective. When your event page is ready to go live, click on the green Go Live button to publish. You can then share your event page using the custom URL you created (e.g. picatic.com/eventname).

If you need design inspiration, the Tickets section lets you discover events happening around the world. You can use your account to view or register for local or online events related to business, music, and more. If you’d like your event pages to match your organization’s branding, the Pro plan lets you customize both your event page and ticket design where you can remove the Picatic branding, insert your logo and custom text.

The ticket purchasing experience can make or break your online event, so customers should have easy payment options that don’t get in the way. Picatic has an Invoicing feature for bank transfers and other offline options. For credit/debit card payments, the app lets you securely and quickly collect payments using your Stripe account. It guides customers to complete the buying process so they never need to leave your event page when purchasing a ticket.

If a customer decides to back out of the event, you can offer full or partial refunds easily. Simply click on Manage » Orders to view ticket orders for an event. Open the Action dropdown and select Refund from the options. Once you’ve issued a refund, the customer receives confirmation and the ticket is removed from the Entrance List and Sales Reports. For enhanced analytics, you can upgrade to integrate with Google Analytics to see how your event is performing based on ticket sales, issued refunds, and traffic sources.

On the day of the event, attendees can check in using Picatic’s iOS and Android apps. This saves plenty of effort from locating names on a log book or having people sign up a second time. You can check your attendees in by letting them scan their tickets using the camera-based barcode scanner or looking up attendees’ names manually on the app. Once they’ve registered, you can send email notifications and updates to welcome people to the event.

Whether you’re hosting a national trade show or a local fundraiser, you can use Picatic to create beautiful and functional event pages people will enjoy. With built-in payment options, powerful analytics, and easy check-ins, your attendees feel little to no friction throughout the entire buying journey—and you'll have more time to focus on your event.
