Embed Ticketing in a Facebook Tab

Can I embed the ticket purchasing page for my event or venue in a tab on my Facebook page?

Yes, but to be able to do this you must install the Static HTML: iframe tabs app on your Facebook page. This link will take you to the page to add Static HTML: iframe tabs to your page: https://apps.facebook.com/static_html_plus/ (Note: you must be logged into your personal account to add an app to a page.) Click the "Add Static HTML to a Page" button, then choose your page from the drop down list on the next screen. This will return you to your (personal) timeline. From there navigate to your page: the quickest way there is to click on its icon and name under the "PAGES" section on the left hand side of your page.

Once you are at your page, look for "More" below the cover photo. Select the link titled "Welcome" to access the Static HTML tab. You will see two buttons: "View tab as a visitor" and "Edit tab." Choose Edit tab to insert your Passage embed code and change the name of its facebook tab.

To change the tab name from Welcome to something like "Buy Tickets" choose Settings from the options listed along the top. In the third box under the settings section, Facebook Settings, you will see a field to change tab name. Put in your desired name, and click the Save & Publish button at the top of the page.

Next, open a new window to go get the embed code for your event or venue's tickets. If you're not familiar with where to find your embed code, this article will give you step by step instructions: Embed Ticketing on Your Site.

Once you have your code, return to the window with the Static HTML editor open. Click on Content (furthest left) option listed at the top of the page, then paste your embed code into the text editor titled "index.html."  (Note: The ideal width to set for you iframe in the facebook tab is 810px. The ideal height is 700px.) Check the look of your tab by clicking "View tab in Facebook." Then click "Save & Publish." Your tab to sell tickets from Facebook is now ready to go!
