Do you need a way to allow users to buy tickets for your event? Allowing people to sign up for your events is easy with WPForms. In this tutorial, we’ll walk you through how to make an online event registration form in WordPress.
Event Page Details
You’ll need a place within your website to put your event form. This page will contain additional information about your event.
Remember to share these helpful details to get the best results:
- What’s in it for them. Give your visitors a good reason to attend your event.

Making an Event Registration Form
The first thing you need to do is install and activate the WPForms plugin. Here’s a step by step guide on how to install a WordPress plugin .
Also, you’ll need to have a form created. See our tutorial on how to create a simple order form as an example to get started.
After starting your form, it will look similar to this:
Now we’re ready to create the tickets for users. For this, we’ll use the multiple items field. Click and drag it onto your form.
Then click on the field in the right hand preview panel to edit the field label and options. We will use this to ask how many attendees need to purchase tickets.
Change the Label to one that works for you. Then list the number of tickets and their prices in the Items .
Your visitors will see the price tallies in the Total Amount field.
Sending Users Registration Confirmation
You and your guests will both want a confirmation of event registrations.
See our tutorial for help setting up your own confirmation email notifications .
Now to send your guests an email notification of their ticket purchase, you’ll need to add a new notification. Go to Settings " Notifications .
Then select Add New Notification in the top right of the preview panel. Here you’ll be prompted to create a title for your notification.
To send a ticket receipt to the attendee, select their email address in the Send To Email Address smart tags.
Scroll down to the Message area. Select the Smart Tag in the upper right corner and find the name of the field that you created. Add that field into your customized message to the attendee.
Finally, publish your form on a post/page and view your form.
Now you’re all set! You’ve created an event registration form in WordPress.
