Network Ticket Sales
Network Ticket Sales enables authorized resellers who are provided with the ticketing software to sell and print general admission or reserved seating tickets to specific programs or events.
Their access to the ticketing program would normally be restricted to the Network Transaction menu item only.
Access permissions for specific menu items are set in Maintenance > User Maintenance > Actions and access to specific programs or events are set in Maintenance > User Maintenance > Rights.

In the Print section:
- Check the Ticket radio button if you wish to print the tickets immediately or will be mailing out the tickets to the customer (if Mail out checkbox is also checked).
- Check the Credit Card radio button if the customer will be picking up the ticket(s) at the venue box office by presenting the credit card that was used to make the purchase.
If the ticket(s) will be picked up by another person who is NOT the holder of the credit card that was used to make the purchase, check the Details if collected with a different name checkbox and fill in the name and card number of the person who will be picking up the tickets. Note that this card number is not used to process any transactions. The person presenting the credit card with these details will then be able to pick up the ticket at the venue box office.
Check the Print label checkbox if you wish to also print a address label at the same time the tickets are printed.
Check the Mail out checkbox if you wish to print the tickets that have been sold at a later time. The print receipt and Print address checkboxes will become greyed since you have the option of checking these boxes when you print the tickets later via Ticket transactions > Mail Out Tickets.
Any time you exit the system and still have remaining mail out tickets to be printed, the system will ask you whether you wish to print mail out tickets before exiting the system.
To add a Service charge to the transaction, select the appropriate fee from the Service charge drop-down box.
Click on the Accept button to complete the transaction. The seats will be sold and will appear red in the seating chart.
