GoFan now offers digital concession sales for schools! With school back in session and fall sports in full swing, there isn’t a better time to start offering concessions with GoFan.
We're committed to elevating the event experience for schools and fans with innovative technology for ticketing and beyond. In this blog, you'll discover how digital concessions can benefit your school, get the key details on this new feature, and learn how easy it is to get started with helpful instructions and videos.
Benefits of GoFan Concessions for Your School
Shorter and Faster Lines
Your school's events can draw large crowds, which usually means long lines and lots of cash to count at the concession stand. Now you can take orders and process payments quickly with an iPad and card reader. Your fans can pay in just a few seconds with a credit or debit card, Apple Pay, or Google Pay and get back to the stands.
You can access your concessions sales data on demand with intuitive reports. Gain a better understanding of your fans’ preferences and make informed decisions on inventory, pricing, and more. You can also track all concessions revenue along with your events to streamline bookkeeping.
Lower Staffing Costs
With shorter lines and no cash to count, you won't need to ask as many of your busy staff members to work at the concession stand. One or two people can easily take orders and process payments with the quick checkout process.
What You Need to Know
Concessions are managed in HQ, and fans purchase concessions in Box Office. You must download the new version of Box Office to access this feature. The new Box Office app is purple. This feature is accessible to any user of a school that's a Box Office customer and has the ability to add or edit school events.
You now have the option to create a concessions event in HQ. You can select the gender, level, sport, and event length. We encourage you to create longer concessions events to reuse throughout the season. To distinguish your Concessions sales from Ticket sales, be sure to include the word "Concessions" in the name of the event.
You can add custom concessions and assign prices for each item.
