We recently updated HoldMyTicket.com to support web user accounts. This means anyone visiting HoldMyTicket.com can sign in using their Facebook or Twitter accounts. Creating a web user account happens simultaneously as the user signs in, and only takes a few seconds. Web users get access to speedy checkouts, order histories, our Affiliates Program, customized content and more. Here's how web user accounts work: Web users begin by going to holdmyticket.com, and clicking the 'Login' button in the upper right part of the screen. They'll be prompted to login using Facebook or Twitter.
Once the user has logged in, they'll see their name and avatar photo in the top right, where the 'Login' button used to be. Users can click here to see the users' menu. The first step, after logging in, should be to go to the Account Settings page. This is where users can verify email addresses and save their information and preferences. Verifying email addresses is necessary if the user wants to access their past orders, change names on orders, or resend email confirmations.
Logging in as a web user has many advantages:
Default Location Logged in users can save their default location. HoldMyTicket.com will automatically display events near this location. Order History Users can easily see a list of all the orders they've made on HoldMyTicket.com. They can then click on an order to get order details.
Order Details Users can see all the details related to an order they've made. Confirmation numbers, event details, ticket details, delivery method and more info is available on the order details page. Additionally, users can easily change the name on their order, or resend the email confirmation related to the order.
Speedy Checkout Users can save their name, phone number and billing address under their Account Settings. This info saves time during the checkout process because it is automatically loaded into the checkout form. All the user needs to do is select their tickets and fill out their credit card info to checkout!
Affiliate Program Web Users are eligible to participate in Affiliate Program. When users refer a new client to HoldMyTicket, they will receive 10% of HoldMyTicket's fees collected for each ticket they sell during their first year as a new client. Public API Key Web users will automatically be assigned a public API key. Found on their Account Settings page, this key can be used to access event info, order info and more via HoldMyTicket's API (Application Programming Interface). More info about how this can be used can be found here: http://holdmyticket.com/api/
