4. Click “Log in” when the prompt pops up

5. Select which Facebook fan page on which you wish to have your ticketshop and click on “Add shop”

6. Head over to your Facebook fan page and you should either see the ‘Buy tickets’ tab at the top of your page or in the drop down menu at the top

7. It is important that your ticketshop is on the first line of icons so that it is visible when fans visit your page. You can change the icon image and position to give your ticketshop greater stand-out.

Now that your Facebook ticketshop is live, it’s time to let your fans know that tickets are on sale. Post a link to your ticketshop on your timeline/wall and add the link to your events page.
