Spektrix Link is a pre-built purchase pathway provided by Spektrix.

When designing your online user journeys, there are a number of tools you can use to integrate your website with Spektrix. In this article, we’ll introduce Spektrix Link which is one of the integration tools available, 

Before starting, make sure you’re familiar with:

 

About Spektrix Link

You can connect Spektrix Link with your existing website, or you can choose to build an integrated purchase pathway using one, or a combination of our other integration tools (such as iFrames, API or Web Components.)

Spektrix Link is not designed to replace your main website, rather, it’s there to make it as easy as possible for you to handle the purchase path-specific aspects of your online journey.

Using Spektrix Link, customers can buy and redeem Tickets, Donations, Memberships, Subscriptions, Merchandise, and Gift Vouchers online.

 

How does it work?

Spektrix Link can host all of the elements of your online journey which relate to the purchase path. 

This can include browsing Events, adding Tickets to the Cart/Basket, processing transactions and any other actions which interact with your Spektrix system. 

You can easily link out to your Spektrix Link site from your existing website. To make the experience as smooth as possible for the customer, you can also apply styling to Spektrix Link so that the look and feel remains consistent. 

We’ll also provide all of the information to guide you through the steps of setting up a subdomain which will let customers stay on your main domain throughout to browse and buy items. For example, directing a customer from myvenue.com to a subdomain of purchase.myvenue.com.

Spektrix Link meets WGAC 2.1 AA Level Standards for accessibility, aside from the ChooseSeats.aspx iframe. When creating default colour schemes, it is your responsibility to make sure that these also follow your accessibility standards. 

You can easily add your Google Tag Manager details to allow tracking for Google Analytics.

Considerations

As with all of our integration tools, there are a number of considerations to be made before choosing. 

What’s possible with Spektrix Link:

  • Spektrix Link might be right for you if you have a limited budget or are working towards a tight deadline. This is because Spektrix Link requires the least web developer support compared to other integration tools.
  • Spektrix Link can be used as a temporary or permanent solution to your website integration.
  • Spektrix Link offers functionality that is designed to be easy to configure
  • Spektrix Link can be used alongside your main website integration at no additional cost, to provide a parallel purchase pathway for festivals, offsite events, or other partner promotions.

What’s not possible with Spektrix Link:

  • Spektrix Link might not be the best option if you want the ability to fully customise your web pages. By working with other integration tools, a web developer can have full control over the look and feel of your integrated purchase pathway. Spektrix Link users can only configure specific aspects including logo, fonts, colour, menu items, and URL.
  • Spektrix Link takes the customer from your website to your Spektrix Link website. Although it is possible to customise some of the look and feel, it is visible that it's separate to your website.
