We've mentioned in the the Price Tiers article how Tiers are the vehicle you use to accept payment for your event. Although they're usually used as tickets for registration, they don't have to be. Quantities give you the flexibility to create Price Tiers for different aspects of your program, some examples are selling retail items and meals for your event.
We're going to assume you're familiar with creating Price Tiers, if not check out How to Create a Price Tier before continuing.
This article covers how to create quantites and the effects it has on your registration.
Creating a Quantity Price Tier
1) Start a new Price Tier.
2) When you get to the Quantities section, add a number in the Max input, this will activate the quantity tier and set the maximum amount registrants are allowed to select per registration.
3) Fill out the rest of the Price Tier page.
4) Click the Save button.
How a Quantity Affects Registration
Quantities are used for add-on products around your event, things that supplement your event's tickets. DO NOT use quantities when creating ticket Price Tiers, if you want to allow registrants to register multiple people you must enable Group Registration in your Registration Settings.
Because a Quantity is seen as an add-on, registrants can select another Price Tier after choosing a Quantity Tier. For example, registrants can add a general admission ticket and a meal to their registration.
Note: If you don't want to use a Quantity, leave the Max input blank.
