Pass buckets represents the types of passes that are for sale at your festival.
Below are a few key steps to creating a pass bucket.
Name your pass bucket
- From the Eventive Dashboard, navigate to your event bucket.
- Click "Pass buckets" in the lefthand navigation.
- Click "Create new pass bucket".
- Enter a name & price for the pass bucket.
- Click "Save changes".
Create a pass rule
Pass rules are how you provide discounted / free tickets to passholders. In order for a pass bucket to function, at least one pass rule must exist!
Below is how you'd create an All Access Pass, or, a pass rule that gives passholders one free ticket to every event:
- In the pass bucket editor, select the "Pass rules" tab.
- Click "Add new rule".
- Under "Target", check "Apply to all ticket buckets".
- Under "Result", enter "100" in the "Percent off" field.
- Under "Use restrictions", check "Only allow one ticket per event per pass".
- Click "Save".

Collect information from passholders
You can collect any additional information you'd like from passholders - such as mailing address or phone number - via the Supplementary data tab.
Customers enter this information at checkout, and can update their responses at any time (you can also view & edit responses via the dashboard).
- In the pass bucket editor, select the "Supplementary data" tab.
- Click "Add new field".
- Select a field type and enter a label and (optional) description.
- Click "Save fields".
NOTE: We already automatically collect passholder names at the time of purchase, so you don't need to add that as a supplementary data field.
List the pass for sale on your site
By default, newly created pass buckets are private -- this allows you to create hidden passes (for example, a Sponsor or Filmmaker Pass).
You can access the web sales page for your new hidden pass by going back to the Pass buckets list, clicking "View", and then clicking the "Direct sales link" button. You can also sell it via the box office.
