Online concert ticket salse

Can anybody help with suggestions on how to set up an online concert ticket sales system within a website for a 10 venue tour to venues with approximately 100 seats each.

We need to accept online payment and issue numbered tickets for download and also send email confirmations.

Thanks in anticipation.

Basicly the same way you can build a digital store the only difrence is that the only product would be the tickets

Ok thanks

How does the indexing of the tickets work and how do you ensure that you dont sell more tickets than the capacity of the venue?

Any help on this Jason?

I'd appreciate a brief guide on how to set up the database.

it wont really take anything tricky to set up the data base,

something like:

concertID - Primary Key

and any other columns you would like for the concert info

the order details table will store the venue name and the convert date. on the tickets, you can create a unique ticket number by using the orderID and converting the date to a time stamp, so if the concert date is 2011-10-5 and the order id is 12 your ticket number would be 121317787200:

<?php echo($row_recordsetName['orderDatailsOrderID']."".strtotime($row_recordsetName['orderDatailsConcertDate']))?>

To limit ticket sales, you will need to hand code logic to update the concertTicketsAvailable column after the transaction goes through, I cant offer a lot of support for this part, if you need help with that, I would suggest signing up for a premium incident where we could work with you in a one on one session.
