Selling tickets

creating an event & selling tickets | scanning tickets | How much does it cost?

It's very easy to sell tickets with ntry. Simply create an event, and off you go!

To promote your event in the best way, NTRY makes multiple tools available to you

You can incorporate and sell tickets directly on your websites – the integration is done easily using iframe/javascript. We also provide you with QR-Codes, which you can put onto your flyers or posters – they lead directly to the ticket sale.


Enter the, go to „My Events“ and choose CREATE NEW EVENT.


Fill in the EVENT TITLE. NTRY automatically creates a Short-URL under which the event will be found in the future (which might be changed manually). With EDIT DETAILS you can also add additional information.

Next up are DATE & STARTING TIME. If necessary you can also type in your own starting time.

VENUE & LOCATION of the event. On NTRY you can find (via Google Places) numerous event venues – simply click and select them!


Now it's time for the tickets: You can add several categories (Floor, Seat, VIP, Early Bird…) and assign contingents as well as individual prices for each one.

With the Ticket Calculator, you get details about the actual sums you will receive when selling your tickets.

You can add further options to your ticket presale - for example, the maximum number of tickets that can be emitted for each purchase (default value: 5). You can personalise tickets (in which case the customer will have to state e.g. his/her name, which will then be visibly printed on the ticket) and enter instructions for the customer (e.g. that the festival tickets must be exchanged for bracelets to be valid). These instructions will appear at the bottom of the page on printed tickets.

With the „Ticket Image“ you can style each entry ticket as you please. (Making sure not to upload copyrighted images of others!) The picture uploaded will appear on the printed tickets as well as in the ntry app.

For a better overview, we give you the possibility to oversee other ticket sales as well, under MANAGE EXTERNAL QUOTA: Here you can keep an eye on presale points and quotas.


  1. Publish your event on

The outline above your created events gives you a review on your events ticket orders and sales, based on an easily understandable colour code. The coloured bar displays various quotas and sales. The stats underneath indicate your actual assets in numbers (turnover, sold tickets, etc.)

With EDIT you can update your event, manage your ticket quotas and fill in additional information at any time. In the TOOLS area you can quickly install and make use of our marketing tools.

To validate your event tickets, you simply need a smartphone with the installed NTRY Scan-App. The App is available free of charge for iPhone and Android smartphones (or any other iOS/Android mobile device). You can carry out the operations from your own mobile device, or execute them from any other phone or tablet (eg. your staff's).

Log into the app with your NTRY account info and select the upcoming event from MY EVENTS.

You'll quickly develop a comfortable feeling for the scanning process: Hold the scanner at a steady distance of 7-10cm above the ticket to be scanned. Use if necessary the options FOCUS (for focusing) and TORCH (in case it's too dark).

The smartphone vibrates during the scanning process to indicate that it's active. The display shows whether a ticket is valid (green check mark) or invalid (red cross), making a distinct signal. On the display you will see whether the scanned tickets are valid for one or more persons, respectively.

In addition, you always have, right at the bottom, the overview on how many ticket holders were already scanned and how many are (or should be) coming altogether.


Scanning usually works easily even under harsh conditions – it is however best if you ensure there is the necessary amount of light in the entrance area and that the smartphone (mobile device) is fully charged.


Aside from the Aztec-code, each ticket also has an multi-digit code with letters - clearly visible both on the print@home and on the app ticket.

On the respective event pages in the NTRY admin area, under TOOLS, you can easily print a list of these codes after presale has ended. If, for any reason, it is impossible to complete the scanning process this list offers an analog“ alternative to determine whether a ticket is valid or not.


No costs incur for the use of NTRY ticketing and the creation of events.

Only in the case of tickets successfully sold over the system will a share (10%) of the retail value be withheld. (Please note for very low admission prices: The minimum charge per sold ticket amounts to 0,60 Euro). You will generally be billed within a few days after the event
