Early Access Codes are used to give customers access to purchase tickets before the date that ticket sales are scheduled to start. You have the ability to tie the early access code to specific groups of tickets or all of them. Customers will only be prompted to enter an early access code if none of your tickets have gone on sale yet.
Creating an early access code will override the sales start time for the selected ticket types and make them available to anyone that enters the code on the event page. The set this up, navigate to the Edit page for your event and click the Show Advanced Settings button at the bottom of the page (see above). Scroll down and click the carrot icon next to the Early Access Code card to open the access code settings (see below).
The ticket type(s) you tie to your early access code will need to be set to Sell Online in order for them to be accessible when the code is entered by a ticket buyer.
Specify the code you would like to set in the Early Access Code field. This is what your ticket buyers will enter to access tickets before sales start. Simply select the tickets that this code will grant access to and click Save to set the Early Access Code. When it is set, the event page will now offer an option to enter the code. The codes are case sensitive, and when entered correctly will advance the ticket buyer to the ticket page with the selected early access ticket types showing for sale.
