Configuring Eventbrite Tickets

The Eventbrite Tickets plugin allows us to quickly create events on your WordPress site and associate them with tickets over on Eventbrite.com.

Before you can use it and start adding tickets, however, you will need to get your website connected to your Eventbrite account. Since Eventbrite Tickets 4.5 the connection is quick and easy:

  1. Navigate to your WP Admin > Events > Settings > APIs tab and click the Connect to Eventbrite button.
  2. You will be redirected to your Eventbrite.com account.
  3. After logging in, you will be asked to allow our ea.theeventscalendar.com application to access your account.
  4. Once you click Allow, your site will be connected and you'll be redirected to your imports page where you can import your first event from Eventbrite.

And that's it! From there, you're ready to begin creating events. If you're unsure how to get started, check out our Eventbrite Tickets new user primer as further reading :)

Eventbrite Import Settings

In Eventbrite Tickets 4.5 we added the ability to import Eventbrite events with our Event Aggregator tool (WP Admin > Events > Imports).

To import events and display tickets on your site, select the Eventbrite Import Origin.

Note: Events imported with Event Aggregator's "Other URL" will not display tickets.

You can modify the default "Status", "Category" and "Show Google Map" options for your imports by navigating to WP Admin > Events > Settings > Imports tab.

Do also note that your Eventbrite imports will obey the Event Update Authority settings.

Remove Authorization

If you need to remove authorization from Eventbrite.com, visit Events → Settings → APIs and select the "Remove Authorization" button. You should see a "Success! You have deauthorized your Eventbrite Application Key." message. The Eventbrite ticket section on your WordPress events will no longer display.
