The New Builder does not support Registrations. Please use the FORM BUILDER for this feature instead.
Registrations is a great tool to get people to sign up for free or paid events online. Registrations are most often used for workshops, conferences, and even appointments. In the following tutorial, we will use an example of a monthly marketing workshop using the registrations tool.
STEP 1: REGISTRATION DETAILS
To begin, click on SELL ONLINE from your ECommerce control panel and select REGISTRATIONS from the drop down menu. Click on NEW REGISTRATION to begin setting up your registration.
After you create a registration category, you can then click NEW REGISTRATION.
You will be prompted to enter the following for your registration:
NAME: This allows you to name your registration, and will let your customers know what they are registering for.
DESCRIPTION: This allows you to enter the copy for the registration that will explain what your customers are registering for.
SEATS AVAILABLE: This will control the total number of customers that can purchase and complete your registration.
EXPIRATION DATE: This allows you to enforce a deadline for your registration. The system will automatically close registration on this date.
PRICE: This allows you to set a price for your registration. If you do not wish to charge clients for signing up for the registration you can enter the price in as $0.00
CHARGE TAX: This controls whether you would like to charge sales tax for your registration. The amount of tax is controlled by the tax settings for your store.
ACTIVE: This gives you the ability to control whether or not the registration is available or not. This is particularly useful if you are creating a registration in advance for an upcoming promotion (Example: Seasonal Mini Sessions). You can set active to no and it will not be visible on your store front.
CHARGE SHIPPING: This will allow you to select whether you would like to charge a shipping fee for your registration. If you are including anything that will be sent to your attendees prior to your event, you can pass along the shipping charge for those materials here.
ADDITIONAL COST: If there is an additional shipping cost beyond the general shipping settings for your registration, you may enter it here.
EMAIL NOTIFICATION: This allows you to control where notification emails will be sent once a customer has completed the registration process.
EMAIL THANK YOU MESSAGE: This allows you to enter a custom "Thank You" message for each registration that your customer will see at the top of their receipt.
When all your information has been entered, click on ADD REGISTRATION.
STEP 2: ADD IMAGES
You can add IMAGES to your registration to better market your event. This can be a call to action, a simple text graphic, etc. It's a great way to give your clients a visual for what they're signing up for.
STEP 3: EDIT FORM FIELDS (if needed)
You can create FORM FIELDS for your attendees to provide you with any information you may need about them to prepare for your event. This setting can be found in the FORM FIELDS tab when setting up your registration.
In the SEO & SEARCH tab, you can control information for both on-site searching and Search Engine Optimization.
Under KEYWORDS, you can add keywords or phrases (separated by commas) to aide your website viewers in finding this specific registration.
Under SEO PREFERENCES, you can choose either AUTO-SEO or CUSTOM. The AUTO-SEO feature will pull words and phrases from your registration to automatically add a page title, meta description, and meta keywords. If you choose the CUSTOM option, you will be able to enter your own PAGE TITLE, META DESCRIPTION and META KEYWORDS.
After your changes have been made, make sure to click on SAVE CHANGES.
NOTE: You'll need to add a REGISTRATION PAGE to your BUILDER for your clients to be able to access and register.
