Appalachian Sustainable Development wanted to run a raffle for the first-ever HarvestFest, and originally set up their tickets in event ticketing software they already used. Unfortunately, they discovered that ticket buyers were being charged some pretty outrageous fees on top of their raffle ticket orders. ASD needed a solution fast since the tickets were already on sale, so they came to ThoseGeeks for help as we had helped build their website and e-commerce already.
ASD’s website was already on WordPress with working e-commerce, so we quickly duplicated their order form and tickets using GravityForms and hooked things up with their Stripe account so customers could order straight from the HarvestFest page on their site. ASD receives the order information so they can run the raffle. The money goes straight to ASD’s bank. Customers aren’t hit with extra fees. We had the order form ready to go in under 24 hours. Wins all around!
