You have a couple of options for getting participants into your Vito hub:

  • Connect Vito to Stripe and sell instant access for a single price;

  • Sell access using Tito or another registration platform, and import participants into your Vito hub at your leisure (see instructions here).

If you like to keep things simple, using Vito's built-in access is a great option. If you're looking for more advanced features like ticket types, custom checkout questions, or support for multiple payment methods, we recommend using Tito with Vito.

Selling access through Vito

To set up a public page and sell access, you'll first need to head to the Backstage area of your hub.

Make your hub public and set a price

Once you're Backstage, click on Settings in the menu and scroll down to the Access section. By default, all hubs are private access with no public page. To sell access, you'll need to click Edit and change your hub to public.

A public pricing form will appear automatically. Select your currency and then set a tax-exclusive price and a tax amount if applicable (this should be the actual amount, not a percentage).

In the above example, the pre-tax price for access is £79 and the 20% tax equals £15.80. The total price for access is therefore £94.80, which is how it will be displayed on the public page:

Customize your public page

Now that you've enabled your public page, you might want to customize it. All the following sections and fields can be found in the same Settings form in the Backstage area of your hub:

  • General: Set a tagline, which appears under the hub name at the top of the public page. This can be a short sentence or a longer paragraph, but it must be plain text (no links or formatting).

  • Dates & times: If your hub is for an event, you can set a start and end date and time. This will display on the public page, and will activate the automatic reminder email which goes out to participants 30 minutes before the start time (unless you disable this reminder under the Emails section.

  • Brand assets: Set a hub logo, if you haven't already. You can also upload a banner (recommended size: 1152 x 480px) and/or set a teaser video. You need to have already uploaded this Backstage under Content > Videos.

Here's an example of what a simple public page with a teaser video looks like:

Any presenters and sessions you've added to the hub will also display on the public page under the hero section. You can also set up a public page for a free hub if you want people to be able to join with just their email address. Simply set the price to 0.

Make sure your hub is live

Before you share your hub link with your audience, be sure your hub is live. When you create a new hub, it starts out in draft mode until you choose to make it live. You can do this from the Setup Guide within the hub, or under Settings in the Backstage area.

Share your public page link

If you share the link to your hub (something like https://vi.to/hubs/example) with someone who isn't a logged in participant, they'll be taken to the public page for the hub instead. From there, they can buy instant access. If you don't have a public page (i.e. if your hub is set to private), this link will take them to a login page instead and unless you've invited the participant manually, they won't be able to see your hub.

Buying access

Finally, let's look at the purchasing experience for the participant. They will get redirected from your public page to Stripe Checkout where they can enter their contact and payment details, and they'll then be shown a confirmation message to check their email for an access link.

As the video shows, Apple Pay is also available on supported devices.

How to view orders

As people register via your public page, their orders will be saved in the Backstage area under Access > Orders. You can click into an individual order to retrieve a copy of the participant's receipt.
