Facebook Integration

What is a Facebook event?

You can publish an event created in your lippu.light account directly on your Facebook page. Simply connect your lippu.light account with Facebook. All data about your event that you have already entered in lippu.light will be automatically transferred to Facebook. Your customers will be redirected directly from Facebook to your ticket shop.

What do I need in order to use it?

You need a valid Facebook account. An active Facebook page must be linked to this account, e.g. your promoter page. You need administrator rights for this Facebook page to be able to publish your event there.

How do I create my Facebook event?

After creating and publishing your event in lippu.light, go to your event detail page and click the 'Create Facebook Event' button. First connect your lippu.light account with your Facebook account. Then select the Facebook page where you want your event to be published. At least one page must be selected for the link to Facebook to work. In the next step, give lippu.light / EVENTIM.Light permission to manage your page. Set the button here to 'Yes' so that the link with Facebook works properly.

Now you can upload an image and enter an event description specifically for Facebook. Select a Facebook event category in which you want your event to be found. One last click on 'Create Facebook Event' and you are done.

What does 'Revoke connection' mean?

It means that you delete the connection between your lippu.light and your Facebook account. In this case your events will no longer be visible on Facebook. If you just want to pause editing your event, just click on ‘Log-out’. The connection with your Facebook account will stay active and your events remain visible on Facebook. To continue editing your event, just log back in.

How do I update my event after publishing?

If you make changes within your event, you need to synchronise lippu.light and Facebook again. Click on ‘Update Facebook event’ to submit the updated information from lippu.light to Facebook.

What happens if I pause sales in lippu.light?

In this case nothing changes on Facebook. Your event will remain visible with an active link to your ticket shop. Your customers will see in the ticket shop that tickets are not available.

What do I need to consider when cancelling an event?

A. Cancellation on Facebook
When cancelling an event on Facebook, your customers will also be notified there. You keep access to your Facebook event page, but you cannot edit it anymore. The cancellation will be documented on your Facebook event page within lippu.light. Changes are no longer possible here either. Cancelling your event on Facebook neither affects the status of your event in lippu.light nor the purchasing process of tickets.

B. Deletion on Facebook
If you delete an event on Facebook, you no longer have access to it. This does not affect the status of your event in lippu.light and does not lead to a cancellation within lippu.light.

C. Cancellation in lippu.light
If you cancel an event within lippu.light, it does not affect your Facebook event. You need to cancel your Facebook event separately. NB. If you are cancelling an event that has sold tickets, please contact Lippu.fi client support!


Event Settlement

What happens after the event?

After holding your event, give us your approval to start the settlement process. To do this, choose the relevant event from the list of "Expired events", open the event details page and set the status to "Finished" in the drop-down list at the top right. When the event is finished, no further bookings, and in particular cancellations, are possible.

When will my event be settled and paid out?

If you have set the status of your event to "Finished", settlement will take place within approximately seven days. You can download the report on the event page by clicking the button "Download settlement". For pay-outs, we will use your bank details which you have stored under "My Profile".

Cancelled or postponed events are not included in this and will only be billed once any cancellation claims on the part of ticket buyers have been resolved.

Who should I contact if I have queries about settlement?

If you have any queries about settlement and pay-outs, our support team will be happy to help. Simply send us your enquiry and event details via the contact form.

Event Series

What is an event series?

You can use an event series if you have an identical event on different dates. With this feature you can automatically apply several event data in each of the event dates without any manual tasks. Therefore you can either apply event description and / or the event image.

You personally decide which of these elements may be applied to every event.
