You may find answers to most questions about Eventive Virtual, including a full pricing breakdown, in our Eventive Virtual Organizer FAQ. Below you will find answers to questions specific to performing arts centers:

Can Eventive Virtual be used for content beyond film?

Absolutely! Any live event or recorded content can be presented as a VOD screening, a Real Time Broadcast, or a Livestream! Eventive has connected viewers with concerts, dance pieces, plays, cirque, magic, puppetry, cabaret shows, mixed media -- the list goes on.

As long as you can outline the availability details in your artist’s contract, you can invite them to upload a recording of their performance and be sure their work is as secure as can be with Eventive’s Advanced Antipiracy protection.

Can we use our own ticketing system with Eventive Virtual?

Yes! Organizations are not required to use Eventive ticketing while using the platform. You can connect your current/preferred ticketing system to Eventive using Zapier and/or our open API. Using this method, payments from your audience route through your ticketing system while ours auto-generates an Eventive ticket to your event. Here’s a great overview of the Eventive API. You can also process group sales just before the show by uploading a CSV file of ticket holders, or you can send viewing links and unlock codes to your ticket buyers in your own system’s confirmation emails.

Can Eventive work with our membership program?

Absolutely! Eventive is great for managing new memberships within the platform or importing legacy memberships from a separate CRM. Grant them exclusive access to programs, offer them a percentage discount on all shows, give them an advance buying period, and more! This FAQ can help you set up your membership program on Eventive.

Can we collect donations through Eventive?

Certainly! We’ve created a whole collection of help articles to help you collect donations at checkout, during livestream events or in a separate section on your Eventive site. Also, you can use our robust analytics to identify your most engaged viewers -- aka, future donors and volunteers!

Aside from donations, Eventive also offers “Pay What You Can” functionality to inspire additional giving or promote income-based accessibility.

Can we use Eventive for in-person events as well as virtual events?

Yes! Add venue information, build seat maps and sell tickets either as general admission or reserved seating -- perfect for creating new socially distant seating arrangements! Sell tickets and passes online or at the door, generate physical tickets, scan in attendees as they arrive, and keep all of your data in one place. Learn more about the Eventive Box Office here.

Some of my programs are grant-funded or co-sponsored with other organizations. How can Eventive help?

Eventive makes it easy to integrate sponsors on all of your screening pages so you can thank everyone helping you put the show on. Display ads on screening pages, pre-roll content, and naming audience awards after donors are all great ways to highlight your supporters!
