ACE Commerce Features

Tied directly to Tessitura, ACE Commerce affords your organization a solid base of features.

ACE Commerce is built on the notion that the ticket-purchasing process should be seamless for patrons and under complete control of each arts organization to maximize sales.
Single Tickets

Provide a superior ticket purchasing experience.

The flexible functionality built into the single ticket purchase path is extensive. The event calendar is color coded by venue, highlighting promo-applicable performances and auto-populating events from both Tessitura and the content management system. And you can recommend seats based on the user’s preference with SmartSeat, Adage’s industry-leading select-your-own-seat (SYOS) functionality.

Subscriptions in ACE Platform built by Adage

Maintain a positive connection with your most loyal fans.

ACE Commerce’s subscription model relies on the idea that subscriptions don’t have to be rigid or complicated to be excellent sources of revenue. Fixed subscriptions and renewals, as well as flex subscriptions, are all administered online, allowing you to save time and mailing expenses while providing a superior customer experience.

With common ACE Commerce customizations, subscribers can utilize SmartSeat SYOS functionality and purchase recommended add-ons and parking, all in the same transaction.


Make contributions a steady stream of revenue.

Soliciting donations should be more than an ask in the purchase path. ACE Commerce deeply engrains donations into the site experience, giving you full control over messaging and placement of these important calls-to-action.
Craft your own donation levels with different highlighted benefits. Solicit donations across the site. Even take advantage of snappy upsells and constituent-specific donation amounts, all at your control within the content management system.

BAM Memberships

Turn patrons into loyal brand ambassadors.

Encourage return visits to both your venues and your website with the power of memberships. Choose which benefits of membership levels to showcase. Then, let users purchase memberships right on your site. It’s the most useful, engaging way to foster amazing fans that are excited to spread the word about your organization.

Gift Certificates

Empower patrons to recruit new fans.

ACE Commerce's gift certificate functionality is a clever way to make gift-giving a beautiful, built-in part of your brand. Upload customized gift certificate templates and let your users create their own messages and preview an automatically-generated visual of a gift certificate right on your site. Then have certificates delivered instantly to recipients by email.

Course Registration

Make course and community offerings a priority.

Bring course and community offerings to the foreground on your website. The ACE Commerce course catalogue nimbly sorts and displays large quantities of data while the registration path is an intuitive approach, with course pages closely reflecting the look and functionality of performance pages and leading seamlessly into the same purchase path.


Free up box office staff by handling subscriber exchanges live, online.

Give users the power to log on to your site for flexible options to exchange tickets and lessen the need for calls to the box office with ACE Commerce's live exchange functionality. On their own, users can swap out tickets for another day’s performance within the same production or add tickets for the same night, all in the seats of their choice using Adage's SmartSeat SYOS functionality.
