[Pro] Member Login and Ticket Sales????

I have a client that has a (Zumba Fitness) studio.
He offers 5 different types of Zumba classes over a number of days and all at different times. Each class has a restricted number of people in it.

The Problem!
Is there a way that their clients can book and pay for a class online, giving priority to members (through a member login)
with a counter that would countdown as the class fills up? also could this counter automatically reset itself after the event?
Any help would be appreciated.
Regards
Andy

This is pretty simple to engineer, as long as you have a database and
understand a dynamic programming language like PHP or Ruby. Depending
on your situation, that may be a non-starter.

In a nutshell, you would create a database table for members, and
another for classes. The owner/administrator would put one row in the
class table for each open “seat” in the classes, and a row in the
members table for each member. The way they would likely do this is
through an admin console that you would design and secure.

When a class “seat” was purchased, it would be marked as taken in the
database, and thus would not be available to sell. When all of the
seats were gone, the class would be full and no further sales would be
possible.

If all of the classes cost exactly the same, you could use a very low-
fi cart system like a PayPal Buy Now button. If they each cost a
different amount, then you would put the price in the classes table,
and use that to construct a purchase button on the fly (slightly more
complex).

Hi Andy,
Unless you want to learn how to create this yourself using PHP & MySQL or you want something quite specific I’d suggest looking for a good pre-written script that does what you are looking for. It should be quicker, cheaper and easier to set up than a custom system and you will, hopefully, have the author to ask if you get stuck.
Have a look on http://www.hotscripts.com or try this from PHP Jabbers;

Tim.

Hi, Sorry for the delay in replying to this post!
Walter, Thank you for your reply
“a little over my head” me thinks?

Tim, I had a look at (phpjabbers) and this looks easy and just the thing. I will give this a go!

Thanx to everyone who helped.
Andy
