Once your customer has selected a ticket group from an event landing page it is time for the checkout process.
If this is a new customer, you must first create a Client before an Order can be created. Clients can, and in many cases must, also have related properties including, Company, Email Address(es), Phone Number(s), Address(es) and Credit Card(s). You can choose to create these related items, except for Credit Cards, at the same time you create the client or you can create each item individually using the specific endpoints.
Although Ticket Evolution does not provide you with the mechanism in which you can verify and authenticate returning customers, we do provide you with the ability to re-use existing Clients and their properties. Doing so will allow you to make subsequent purchases easier and faster as well as access your Client’s purchase history.
Once you have verified and authenticated a returning Client you can utilize the existing
client_id for new orders as well as to present existing Email Addresses, Phone Numbers, Addresses and Credit Cards to make the check out process quick. If necessary, you can create additional of each of these items and even update existing ones as necessary.
