New Ticketmaster Widgets Have Arrived!
We are thrilled to announce the availability of new and improved Ticketmaster widgets through Widgetbox! This change is a direct result of feedback and feature requests from many Ticketmaster affiliates – thanks for reaching out to us!
Our partnership with Widgetbox begins a new chapter of widget development and support on our network. Widgetbox has a solid reputation in the industry, known for providing a clean and simple interface for widget development, as well as stellar customer support. This will enable our team to provide a larger variety of widgets, more capabilities, and a faster response time to any technical concerns.
Great! What's Next?
The first phase of our transition is intended to be as simple as possible. As a result, widget design and setup will continue to use the existing step-by-step process in your Management Area.
However, this transition will likely impact widgets you’re currently running through buy.at:
- If you are currently using flash-based widgets, you must replace them with our new widgets before April 30th. On this day, buy.at will shut down the existing EventEngine / Goowy widgets.
- If you are currently using HTML-based widgets, no replacements or changes are necessary.
During this phase, you’ll notice an improvement in response time and reliability to positively impact your widget experience. Also, keep an eye out for a new name in the Management Area – EventEngine will become “Ticketmaster Widgets” to more clearly convey its functionality.
What's After Phase 1?
Phase two will include a variety of new capabilities, including incorporating more widget styles and the flexibility to edit the widget design and show only the pieces that you find most valuable. In addition, we plan to add video capabilities to widget creatives, enabling affiliates to pull videos from sources such as YouTube to feature in the custom widget. These are only a few examples of future plans to make each widget more functional, user-friendly, and adaptable to new technology.
