Important: We are currently experiencing some issues with PayPal no longer processing credit card payments. To ensure you get your tickets, please checkout using a PayPal account. (If you don't have one it's quick to set one up!). We're sorry for the inconvenience and are working on finding a solution.
When you receive an invitation to a paid event, you can buy tickets through Classlist using PayPal. Where you would normally click the red 'Reply' button to RSVP to a free event, for a ticketed event simply click on the 'Get tickets' button.
A dialogue box will pop up asking you to select the number of tickets (see below). There may be more than one ticket type to choose from (eg adult and child tickets at different prices).
NB: Your selected tickets are held for up to ten minutes or until the payment is completed. If the payment is not completed in within ten minutes your session will time-out and your selected tickets will be released for other people to buy.
Paying with PayPal
Click on the blue PayPal button at the bottom to check out. You will be redirected to PayPal. If you have a PayPal account you can pay through that, if not you will need to set one up (previously you could pay without an account but this option is no longer always offered by PayPal - see the note at the top of this page).
After you have confirmed the payment on PayPal, you will be redirected back to Classlist, where a ticket purchase confirmation notice will show how many and what type of tickets you purchased: eg in the image below the user has bought 1 meal ticket for the Reception class Christmas party. Tickets are shown as pending until PayPal has confirmed the payment. From the confirmation box you can click the ‘download ticket’ link and you will receive a pdf of your ticket which you can print off and keep. The creator (host) of the event will receive a statement from PayPal to confirm that the payment has been received.
If you want to check how many tickets you bought or buy more tickets later on, you can go back to the event page and click on either 'view ticket(s)' or 'more tickets'. If the event owner has set a 'reply by' date on the event you will not be able to purchase more tickets after that date has passed.
Problems with PayPal?
If the event host entered an invalid email linked to their PayPal account the event may be marked as sold out, even though invitations have only just been issued. We have added this intervention because otherwise PayPal's system continues to accept payments even though there is no valid payee account to receive the money. Please get in touch with the event host if you suspect this may have happened.
