Where does QR Code appear?

When someone buy a ticket for your event from now on, they will receive a email with this QR Code embedded in the email. (Should look like below screenshot)



How to check-in Attendees

(With iPhone)

NOTE: You will NEED a QR Code scanner app in a smart phone. We will NOT provide you with a QR Code scanner app.

Step 1: Open Safari first and login to your site.

By default only admin user roles can scan the QR codes to check-in attendees. However from eventon settings > QR Code you can enable other user roles with check permissions.

Step 2: Open any QR scanner app such as below that will allow you to open a QR Code link in Safari.


Step 3: Scan the attendees ticket with your QR Scanner app on your iPhone (their ticket with QR Code can either be on their phone or printed version)

Step 4: Once you scan their QR Code you should be redirected to checkin page on your site. At this point choose to open the link in safari.

note: If you are going to open the link within the QR Scan app’s own browser make sure you sign in as admin to wp-admin to your site in order to scan QR Codes. You can not check-in tickets without login in to your site.

Step 5: On the checkin page click on the one-click button to checkin the ticket. Images below shows the various types of checkin pages you may see during checking process and what those mean and when they appear.

Checking-in attendees at the event via android device would use similar screens on its QR Code scanner app.

NOTE:  You can also check-in attendees by going to Events> All Event Tickets > clicking on the ticket and under Tickets row next to the ticket ID you should see Check-in button.
