Merlin Tickets provides an intuitive sales portal for your customers. After purchasing their tickets, your visitors will receive emailed tickets valid only on their arranged day of arrival.
Tickets can be redeemed using either the free to use Merlin Online web browser application, the Merlin Mobile redemption app, or by using Merlin 8 EPOS system. Once scanned, cloud-based registration prevents duplicate use at all check-in points simultaneously.
Only certain types of admission will qualify for 25% gift-aid claims, and these require customer declarations of consent to be submitted to HMRC. Merlin 8 automatically prompts cashiers and online customers when a product is eligible, and adjusts prices to be compliant with the gift-aid scheme. Merlin 8 reporting can also collate and issue claims directly to HMRC.
Discount codes can easily be added online. Simply Choose a start and end date, which product the code is valid for, any quantity or price thresholds, then create a code for customer use at checkout.
Merlin Tickets means administrators can easily set restricted quantities and specific time-slots for events, on a mobile friendly website. These can be set to repeat on certain days, within specific date ranges, and can specify time and maximum quantity allowed.
