Add your event to Facebook to promote, share, and sell tickets on Facebook. Attendees can buy tickets directly on Facebook, share your event with their friends, and add it to their Facebook calendar. To get started, go to “Add to Facebook” (under “Marketing”).

<h2 id="01">1. Check this before you start:</h2> <p>You can publish your event on Facebook if:<br><br>☑️ You&#39;re an <a href="" target="_self">admin of a Facebook page</a>. You cannot use a personal profile or Facebook group.<br><br>☑️ Your event is less than 4 months long (from start to end date).<br><br>☑️ If your event is a <a href="" target="_self">recurring event</a>, there are less than 100 instances.<br><br>You can&#39;t sell tickets directly on Facebook if:<br><br>❌ Your event is an online event.<br><br>❌ Your event uses <a href="" target="_self">PayPal</a> or <a href="" target="_self"></a> for payment processing.<br><br>❌ Your tickets are <a href="" target="_self">hidden</a> or <a href="" target="_self">donation tickets</a>.<br><br>❌ Your event is <a href="" target="_self">password-protected or invitation only</a>. All events published on Facebook are publicly viewable.<br><br>❌ Your event uses <a href="" target="_self">group registration</a>.<br><br>❌ You have a reserved seating event and want attendees to pick their seats. When attendees buy tickets for these events on Facebook, their seats are automatically assigned.<br><br>❌ You need more information during registration. Facebook’s checkout collects names, email addresses, and billing information. You can also enable <a href="" target="_self">additional terms</a> and shipping information. Facebook’s checkout won&#39;t collect any other information, including any custom questions.</p> <h2 id="02">2. Connect to Facebook.</h2> <ol><li>Go to “<a href="" target="_blank">Manage events</a>” in your account. Then select your event.</li><li>Go to “Add to Facebook” (under “Marketing”).</li><li>Log into your Facebook account. If you’re not already connected to Facebook, select “Connect to Facebook” and log in.</li></ol> <p>You may need to give Eventbrite permission to publish and update event details on your pages.</p> <h2 id="03">3. Add your event to Facebook.</h2> <p>There are two options: Eventbrite creates a new Facebook event for you based on your event details, or you link your tickets to an existing Facebook event on your Facebook page.</p> <ul><li>New event: you&#39;ll only see the option to add the event to Facebook if you don&#39;t have any existing Facebook events.</li><li>Existing event: click &#39;Link tickets to existing Facebook event&#39;.</li></ul> <p>Select a Facebook page for your event under &quot;Publish this event to&quot;. If you only have one page, it is automatically selected. If you&#39;re adding tickets to an existing Facebook event, make sure to select the correct event as well.<br><br>If your event is a <a href="" target="_self">recurring event</a>, you can&#39;t add tickets to an existing Facebook event.</p> <p class="text-small l-pad-vert-2 l-pad-hor-2 card l-mar-top-2">TIP: If you don&#39;t see all your Facebook pages, go to Facebook and <a href="" target="_self">check the permissions on the Eventbrite app</a>. Make sure that the Eventbrite app has access to all of your Facebook pages.</p> <h2 id="04">4. Confirm your event’s location.</h2> <p>Facebook requires a location so that it can help people find events in their time zone. If your event is online, you still have to set a location in the search bar under &quot;Help people find your event on Facebook&quot;. Just adding a city is enough. This location will not show on your online event.<br><br>If your event has a physical location, but the Facebook address is not correct:</p> <ol><li>Click the pencil to change the location.</li><li>Select the closest location.</li><li>Select “Continue”.</li></ol> <p>You can <a href="" target="_self">change the address to the correct one</a> after publishing the event to Facebook.</p> <h2 id="05">5. Choose ticket types.</h2> <p>Select some or all your tickets to add to your event.<br><br>Deselect all the tickets if you don&#39;t want to sell tickets directly on Facebook. You can still publish the event on Facebook. Instead, there will be a link on your Facebook event that redirects to your Eventbrite event page where people can register for tickets.</p> <h2 id="06">6. Optional: add co-hosts to your event.</h2> <p>Co-hosts can invite people and edit your Facebook event. Search for their Facebook page in the search bar to add them. Co-hosts have to confirm your request in Facebook.</p> <h2 id="07">7. Publish your event.</h2> <h2 id="08">8. Visit your event listing and accept the co-host request.</h2> <p>In order to be listed as the owner of the event, you have to accept the co-host request. Click the link to view your event listing. Then click <b>Accept</b>.</p> <p>After you accept the co-host, you can edit your Facebook event and make any necessary changes.</p> <h2 id="09">Helpful links</h2> <ul><li><a href="" target="_self">If Eventbrite&#39;s Facebook feature doesn&#39;t work</a></li><li><a href="" target="_self">Promote your event</a></li><li><a href="" target="_self">Getting started with Paid Social Ads</a></li></ul>
