Events Booking for use in Portugal + Idea Suggestion was created by Miguel Magalhães
Hi, i would like to move from another extension (vik Events) and correct the problems i been having with the previous developers/software houses so i would like to ask:

1) Would you be able to develop the payment plugin for my country? We have examples, documentation and a plugin working with vik events (we want to move to your extension). For us it's important that the developer of the extension makes the payment plugin because if it's made by a 3rd party it's always a mess and a pain process to get right.

2) Regarding the possible Registration, is it mandatory? It’s not explicit in the documentation.

3) Also, (the Registration) it probably uses the default Joomla Login component so a extensions like JFB Connect would not work? I would like our users to login with google or facebook because they can ever remember passwords and this would be a better experience for them. If not I would suggest such implementation in a future release?

And this is the end of my Pre-Sales Questions.

As per my Idea Suggestion:

I attended a conference about NFT’s and they offered a unique NFT to the participants in the event as a way a demoing the app and the technology. I thought it could be a good idea some kind of “badges” that users could “show off” on repeating events. There’s all kinds of possibilities with this idea like, QR Codes that people that attend can scan at the event and “collect” their “proof I was here”, Discounts for loyal costumers, a timeline of their history of events etc. All these ideas based in those concepts of scarcity, proof of ownership and other concepts of NFT's. Basically your PDF Certificate but on steroids and in a fun way. Just an ideia you could implement in the future.

I must finish congratulating you on this extension which i believe is actually the most complete with so much options and with such a nice price. The only thing it lacks compared to competition is seat reservation which is something i don't personally use.

Thanks in advance 4 support

Hello Miguel

1. Yes, we can develop the payment plugin. Please send us integration document + sample code (in PHP programming language if available). We will look at it and give you quotation. For your information, the price for developing is usually from 150$ to 200$, so it's quite expensive

2. Are you talking about User Registration while registering? If so, it is configurable and could be turned off

3. The user registration, as of right now, is only for Joomla core user registration only. It is not integrated with JFB Connect or other social registrations extension yet. If you want to use JFB Connect, registration will have to be handled elsewhere (for example, use Joomla user registration)

Hope my answers are clear. For your other suggestion, It is not clear to me how it works yet, so honestly, something which we won't be able to support for in near future

Regards,

Tuan

Thanks for your fast answers.

1) i will send you the documentation.

2) what i was asking, was, in case of having user registration while registering turned on, if that's always mandatory. In other words if the user has the abillity to choose whether to register or not when that option is turned on.

Another thing that came into my mind that is very, very important to us is timed payment/order. We usually have lots of unpaid orders and we have to phone customers to ask if they are going to attend or not when avaliable seats are running low. What happens is that people rush to register just to garantee their place but only pay when they are sure they can attend. 

Thanks

Miguel

I would also like to make a separate explanation on my idea since you did not fully understand it and i think it would be really nice feature for Events Booking. Feel free to use it in the future if you want, this is not a feature request.

I got this ideia on an event where they use something called POAP. Please visit this website to try to undestand their concept: poap.xyz/

This would be great marketing tool for recurring/repeating events. So how would i suggest this works: forget the NFT stuff POAP works with as we don't need it, just create for every event a unique QR Code. That QR code would be only scanned by attendees in the venue (somewere printed or in a screen but never online) so they could collect their "proof of attendance". Here we put the scarcity value of the NFT's because the QR Code is only available for people that went to the event.

This would create a data base that could be used on the user side for them to collect their "Attendance Badges" and achieving milestones like attending 10 events or never missed 5 consecutive events. This would be another fun user experience along with attending the event itself that they could show off and share on social media.
On the event organizer side, this data base would give the ability to create promotions to the most loyal costumers. I.e. a voucher for some milsestone or if they collect x number of "Attendance Badges" or simply, because you collected a badge on last event, here is a discount on this one.

There could be Modules to show users ranking in order to spice competition or some client area page where they could see and share their "achievements".

So to wrap up: an attendee scans a QR Code at the event and collect their badge. Later they can acheive milestones and all this shared in social media. Event organizers can engange loyal customers and create some competition between them also rewarding them with some discounts.

You don't need to answer this post, just come here in the future if you want to use this idea.

Thanks. When you turn on User Registration, it will always be required, not optional at the moment. I will try to add a new setting to make it optional in the future, but right now, it is required
