Package tickets allow the combination of two or more tickets for sale, in one single "package ticket". This feature is available in Events Registration version 2.
The individual tickets that comprise the package ticket must have tickets available and the package ticket must have tickets available; otherwise the package ticket cannot be sold/selected.

Over Allocated package ticket
Where the number of Total Tickets listed for sale for a package ticket is greater than the number of the package's available components ('child' tickets), the number of 'Over Allocated' tickets is displayed. Only 'Available' tickets can be selected/purchased by attendees, 'Over Allocated' tickets are not available for sale.
e.g. An event organiser creates a Books ticket with 75 available, and a CDs ticket with 60 available, and a Resources ticket (package of Books and CDs ticket) with 75 available. The Resources ticket will immediately show 15 Over Allocated in the package. Once the event goes live, an attendee purchases 5 CDs, then the Resources ticket will show 20 Over Allocated.
Adjusting an Over Allocated package ticket
Open the ticket's details (double-click on the ticket). On the General tab, review the live ticket data.
Ticket below shows 3 Over Allocated tickets.
Change the number of Total Tickets available, click Update.
Review the updated live ticket data, zero (0) Over Allocated tickets are displayed.
Tips for working with package tickets
- Where the Package ticket is comprised of a number of 'child' tickets, do not set any of the 'child' tickets to be a package ticket themselves.
