In light of COVID-19, please review the latest announcement regarding the Reserve with Google guidelines for supporting users and merchants during this time. Additionally, since we are operating with a limited support team, it may take longer to connect with us. Thank you for your patience, and we value your partnership.

December 2019 Announcements

2019-12-09

Minimum and Maximum Tickets

Things-To-Do

Minimum and/or maximum number of ticket restrictions is used to limit the number of tickets a user can buy per order. A dialog will appear informing the user of a violation of the constraint upon check-out.

Impact: If a merchant and service requires certain ticketing restrictions (e.g. minimum 2 tickets must be purchased, or a cap of 5 tickets can be purchased), the partners can add minimum and/or maximum constraint violations during the CheckOrderFulfillability call.

How to implement:

Dynamic Pricing

Things-To-Do

Small price changes (either increase or decrease) are now supported. If a user tries to buy a ticket in which the price has changed, they will be informed of the change, and can choose to continue with the purchase or abandon it.

Impact: Dynamic pricing allows Things-To-Do inventory that is subject to small price variations day-to-day to be supported.
