2. The Booking Skin

Your organisation's booking skin can be found by entering in <<OrgID> into the URL field at the top of your browser. 

  • Your organisation's booking skin is the web point of sale for tickets, products, vouchers, donations, memberships and store products (depending on which features you have licensed and what your business entails.) It is where patrons go to register, book, purchase or donate online. 

  • It is usually designed to match and work in tandem with your organisation's website (if you have one), and some organisations may have multiple skins for different aspects of their organisation, for example, an education skin for the educational activities of their organisation and a main skin for the principal activities of their organisation. Each skin can point towards a different receiving account allowing for further financial separation of one activity from another. Each skin can also have different wording appropriate for the purpose it is being used for. 

  • As your website changes in the future you will need to keep the PatronBase Support Team updated with any "tweaks" that need to be made for your Booking Skin to maintain its seamless integration with your organisation's website. 

An example of the simplest form of a booking skin with a simple template that has not been designed to match a website, but instead incorporates a logo: 

This landing page is the 'What's On Page' - listing productions - but booking skins can be configured to land on pages other than the 'What's On' Page.

3. The Web Control Panel or "WCP" 

Your organisation's Web Control Panel or "WCP" can be accessed by entering <<OrgID>/Admin> into the URL field at the top of your browser. 

The WCP is the "back end" of your organisation's booking skin. It's the combination of settings made in the database (accessed via the RDP) and the WCP that results in the public-facing data that appears on the Booking Skin and forms the purchase process on the web. 

You will be required to enter your provided operator details to access the WCP:
