Eventbrite integration
Breakroom makes it simple to sell or distribute tickets to your event through Eventbrite. Here's how to find the information you'll need to integrate your Breakroom and Eventbrite accounts.

Overview

With Eventbrite integration, you can sell or distribute tickets to a virtual event and trust the backend logistics to us. Breakroom will automatically create a user account for anyone who purchases a ticket, using their ticket number as the password. If an account already exists under a user's e-mail address, Breakroom will reactivate that account and reset the password to the ticketholder's current ticket number. You can also distribute virtual goods in response to a ticket purchase -- commemorative t-shirts, for instance, or VIP passes that allow users to access exclusive areas in your region.

Onboarding Eventbrite ticketholders

When users purchase a virtual event ticket through Eventbrite, they will not receive a confirmation e-mail from Breakroom. Therefore, we strongly encourage event organizers to use their Eventbrite event page, e-mail, or other relevant tools to provide ticketholders with the information they will need to log in for the event.
Key points to communicate to ticketholders include:
  • Breakroom will automatically create a user account for anyone who purchases a virtual event ticket through Eventbrite. Their login will be the e-mail they provided to Eventbrite, and their password will be their ticket number.
  • If a Breakroom account already exists under a user's e-mail address, Breakroom will reactivate that account and reset the password to the ticketholder's current ticket number.
  • Users will need to download the custom Breakroom desktop app or sign in through World Stream. Links to download the app or access your dedicated World Stream can be found on the Your Apps tab on the Dashboard.
