Online Stores

Everything you need to set up an online store

For setting up online stores, we're going to use Simplyk's ticketing tool. It might be good to recap how to set up a ticket office before reading further:

There are two ways to format your online store. You can either embed this as an iFrame on your website, displaying the items next to the ticket form, or have it as a list, hosted on a link, with items described under the ticket type.

Parkinson Quebec used a Simplyk ticketing form to create a sleek looking online store for selling artwork, embedding their ticketing form as an iFrame:

As you can see, they created a grid with item descriptions and pricing, then embedded an iFrame below to process payment. It's easy to do this from the "share" screen (the last step when making your ticketing form).

Musée acadien du Québec used Simplyk's ticketing forms to set up their online museum shop as a stand alone Simplyk link:

Notice that they've included postage + tax in their prices

When setting up your shop, it's similar to setting up tickets for an event. There's a few key differences:

You probably won't need a total number of tickets available. The total number of tickets for each item ("number of attendees for this rate") will be more important, as this will reflect how many of each type of item you have to sell online.

Here, we're selling 100 hats

Make sure you include optional extras, like shipping, as a separate ticket item (unless it isn't optional, like tax! Then be sure to include it in the price!).

We're giving donors the option of adding shipping here
