TryBooking is a do-it-yourself, web-based booking system. Everything you need to set up online ticketing, registrations and bookings is free. There is no software or modules to purchase and you don't pay for third party set-up or require any special training. If you need any assistance, we're just a phone call away.
There is only a cost when you receive payment for your bookings. People who book your event will pay just 30c cents per ticket. You only cover the bank transaction fee. More about pricing.
Good news! When you run an event that does not require payment, everything on TryBooking is free. That's right, you can accept all the free bookings you want for absolutely no cost.
The ticket purchasing process is simple, and unlike many ticketing systems, doesn't require an account or password to purchase tickets.
Ticket purchasers are guided through the steps, pay using a credit card and instantly print tickets and receipts from their own printer. If it's a seated event, customers can even choose their own seats online.
Your attendees can access your event to book through your unique event URL (eg. www.trybooking.com/ABC) that you can link to your website, emails, advertisements and promotional material, or by searching the list of events on www.trybooking.com.
It's free and takes about 2 minutes. Through your account you can access the Dashboard where you manage all aspects of your event(s).
This simple process takes just a few minutes and with the help of the set-up wizard, you will be guided to enter the key details of your event. You can make changes to these details at any time, even after you've published the event.
If you are collecting money, you will be asked to create at least one Ticket Type. Later, through your Dashboard, you can create discount codes and ticket styles. Each step will be preceded with a question or prompt and there is always a help feature to provide guidance.
During the set-up, you will also set the Booking Date for your event. Once your event is created, you can easily add additional dates to your event via your Dashboard.
Now you've got the basics of your online ticketing finished, click Create Event and you'll automatically get a personalised URL for easy event marketing. You can use this link to direct attendees to your booking page via your website, emails, posters and other promotional material.
Now, with your event created, you can return to your Dashboard and add or update details at any time.
Once your event is created, you can return to add or make changes to any aspect of your event booking.

Finally you will need to provide a bank account into which your booking funds will be deposited. Once you begin to sell tickets, you can easily track your sales through the Reports on your Dashboard and transfer funds.
No problem. Keep your event "Private" so you can further customise your event page and tickets, or so only people you invite to view your event page can see it. Simply go back to your Dashboard and click on Event Publication. You will be asked if this is a Public Event. Use the drop down menu to select No and now your event is your eyes only.
