How do I change the colours of my ticket shop?
Learn how to design and style your ticket shop by using custom colours in 13 steps.
We encourage you to make your ticket shop more unique and more akin to your taste, so we’ve included a feature that allows you to pick a colour for each specific element of your ticket shop. This guide will show you how to change all the colours yourself:
1. Go to your ‘Dashboard’, click on ‘Manage’ on the left and select ‘Events’. Now all you have to do is select which of your events you would like to personalise the ticket shop of; this can be done by clicking on ‘Edit’ beside the specific event.
2. On the left you’ll now see five different icons, if you select the shopping cart you’ll be able to make changes to the ticket shop. Then, by clicking on ‘More options’ in the top-right corner you can toggle on ‘Shop styling’ - which is the feature that will allow you to change your shop’s colours - the feature will then appear in your menu.
3. The basic colour settings allow you to adjust the primary and secondary colours. The preview on the right will allow you to see a live representation of the effects of your changes; try experimenting with different combinations!
Choose the colours of your branding to make your ticket shop both more personal and more recognisable.
4. We want you to make your shop as unique as possible, so we’ve included a more advanced feature that allows you to edit the colouring of each individual element in your ticket shop. You can access this feature by selecting ‘Fine-tune colours’, which can be found under the primary and secondary colour fields.
5. You’re now free to choose any colour you want for any element of the menu, in any order, but for the purpose of this guide, we’ll start by focusing on the ‘Header/Footer’ section. Adjusting the settings here changes the colour of the top and bottom strips of the ticket shop.
6. Next, we’ll change the ‘Navigation step normal’, which constitutes the ‘inactive’ steps in the ticket shop - in other words, the previous and following steps in the ticket shop. For our default shop, we’ve chosen a lighter blue colour than what we use for our ‘Header/Footer’, because of the passive function they serve. Of course, you’re welcome to do as you please.
Choose a ‘softer’ colour for your ‘Navigation step normal’ than your ‘Header/Footer’, this way the users aren’t focusing on passive elements of the ticket shop.
7. The ‘Navigation step active’ highlights which part of the three steps of the ticket shop the user is currently in. To make it very clear what step of the ticket shop the ticket buyer is in, we use our secondary colour: orange.
8. The ‘Event title’: This strip shows your event’s information, which you can highlight by selecting clear background and text colours.
9. The ‘Tickets’ section is where the user can select the number of tickets they would like to purchase. You’ll probably want to select a colour that draws attention, to get people clicking on that ‘+’ button as often as possible.
10. In the ‘Coupons’ section you can choose to change the text and button colours, however, these elements only become visible to ticket buyers when they click on the ‘Have you got a coupon?’ field and start filling in a code. You can also choose to remove the coupon section by moving the ‘Show input’ slider to ‘off’. Turning this option off isn’t something we encourage, but it’s your choice.

11. ‘Body’: This is the only aspect of the ticket shop that you haven’t changed yet - with the exception of the ‘buttons’. The standard ticket shop uses a simple white background with black lettering, this is also very clear, however, we’re sure you can come up with your own more creative combinations.
12. You can find the ‘Buttons’ at the bottom of the ticket shop; this is where the users press ‘Next’ to go to the following screen and ‘Back’ to go back. You can adjust the background and text colours for the buttons, just keep in mind that the text of the ‘Back’ button will have the same colour as the background of the ‘Next’ button.
13. The final element is the ‘Panels’ which only appear after users have selected ‘Next’ and have moved on to the next step. The panels are where the users fill in their personal information such as their first name, last name and e-mail address. You can see this yourself by selecting a ticket in the preview and pressing ‘Next’.
