Planning an event is an exciting opportunity for every vendor, but dealing with seating charts and ticket sales can be a total headache (especially if your venue is an NHL stadium). Seatmap Pro is here to help! We assist you in creating professional-looking seating charts, prices, and seamless integration with your existing ticketing system – all without needing any coding knowledge.

How can I get started with my website and Seatmap Pro?

Let’s imagine that you already have a ticketing system installed and rolled out on your website. And the only thing you have to do is to somehow bind the seating venue with your tickets.

So let’s start with the basics, shall we?

What you need to know before? helps connect your ticketing system with a fancy seat chart for your customers. Here's how it works in three parts:

  1. Editor: This is your control panel. You use it to create and edit the seating chart for your venue. Think of it like a blueprint for where all the seats are located.
  2. Booking: This acts like a bridge between your seating chart and your ticketing system. It keeps track of which seats are available and their prices. It also displays an interactive seat chart for the customers and when someone buys a ticket, the booking system knows exactly which seat they got.

1. Create a Schema For Your Event offers a user-friendly tool called the Editor to help you with this, and it doesn't require any special tech skills. This Editor works for any size venue, from giant stadiums to intimate concert halls.

One of the cool features of the Editor is that you can draw the overall shape of your venue. The seats will then automatically adjust to fit that shape. This saves you a ton of time, especially for complex venues with unusual layouts. If you'd like to see this in action, has a short video tutorial on their website that walks you through how the Editor works step-by-step.

So you can totally forget about complex coding. lets you create your event and design your seating chart in minutes. Simply drag and drop sections and you're ready to go.

2. Set up the Event

The Event is an entity that connects the available seats in a single show and the prices for them. So imagine you're setting up a concert for a band and here’s what you need to do:

  1. Event: This is like a specific concert date and time. It connects the seating chart (schema) with the prices for that particular concert.
  2. Same chart for multiple events: If the band plays multiple shows at the same venue with the same seating, you only need to create the chart (schema) once. Then, you create separate "Events" for each concert date with the same schema.
  3. Creating an Event: This is like adding a new concert. There are two steps:
    1. First, you get a list of available venue layouts (schemas).
    2. Then, you create a new "Event" with a name (like "Band Name - Concert") and link it to the chosen venue layout (schema). gives you a unique ID for this event.

That way, our interactive seat charts will display real-time availability and pricing, giving your customers a clear and engaging experience. They can easily select their seats with just a few clicks, leading to a smoother checkout process.

3. Set your Prices

For a concert venue with a bunch of seats, and you want to sell tickets at different prices depending on where the seat is. Here's how helps you set those prices:

  1. Secret Seat Codes: Each seat has a unique code made up of sections, rows, and seat numbers joined together.
  2. Setting Prices: Once you have the seat codes, you can set a price for each seat. You do this by creating a list that pairs each code with the price for that seat.

You send this list to Seatmap Pro, and it applies those prices to the matching seats.

4. Show the seating chart to your users

It’s the final step in our list and the most important one: to show your users the chart with all prices and venue plan, here’s the gist of it. handles the heavy lifting for you. We secure your transactions, ensure smooth integration with your existing platform, and provide a user-friendly experience for your customers.

Basically, takes care of the fancy interactive seat chart with prices, so you can focus on selling those tickets!
