Who can create an experience on Funzing?
Absolutely anyone can create an experience! Funzing was created to allow anyone to host and share their knowledge, passion and interests. All you need to do is list your details to get started!
What experiences are worthwhile to host?
Any passion or interest can be turned into a worthwhile experience. We just recommend that you start with something that you're comfortable with. There are endless examples:
Did you recently return from a long overseas adventure? An evening sharing hints and tips will appeal to other keen travellers. Do you enjoy decorating cupcakes with your children? Other kids may love to share in the fun! Are you a history buff or an expert in ethnic cuisine? Did you just finish acting school and are looking for a fresh audience? Do you want to lead a bicycle tour or an evening of Zen meditation? The options are literally endless! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for some more exciting ideas.
What details are important to have on my experience page?
The information listed on your experience page will build interest in your experience. Therefore, information should be informative and comprehensive and should include high-quality images to increase your chances of appealing to a wide audience. Don't forget to write about yourself on the "My Profile" page so that registrants will get to know you better!
We recommend that you choose at least three dates for each experience.
Will my experience immediately show on the Funzing site? When?
Funzing reviews all experiences before approving them for the site to ensure that the content and quality of each experience meets the Funzing community standards and are appropriate for the intended audience.
The Funzing team will review your experience application as soon as you submit it. We will contact you by email or phone to confirm certain details or to suggest changes if necessary. When the event is approved it will be shown on the Funzing website.
How can I price the activity and determine the right length?
There are no set rules for determining the appropriate cost of each experience or a suitable length. When making these decisions you should consider the nature of the activity and the target population and set the price and duration accordingly.
If there are costs involved in running your experience, the price per registrant should include these costs plus the amount of money you wish to earn for your time. You should also consider the Funzing commission as well as any tax you may be liable to pay. Funzing hosts are entirely responsible for creating prices and the Funzing team will not get involved in such decisions.
How can I limit the minimum and maximum number of attendees
While listing your experience, you will be given the option to choose the number of guests you would like to include in your event. You will have to fill in the maximum number of attendees. We do not provide an option to set a minimum number of participants as we believe that there is inherent value in running an experience even if registration is lower than you'd hoped – these participants will become your best spokespeople and will encourage others to attend your future events. They may even come back themselves!
How can I change the number of places available after I've published the event?
We understand that sometimes you need to alter the number of available places after you've published your experience. No frets - we have made this super easy. You just need to go to 'My Events' > Click on "All Scheduled Experiences" > Find the experience you wish to change> Click on the three dots button on the right side> Choose "Update max participants> Change the number in the textbox> Click on "Update".
How can I set a certain number of experiences?
You can do this by clicking on the "Add Dates" button on the "Edit Experiences" page.
How will I know who is coming to my experience?
The system will send you an email for each reservation including the name of the participant and a link to a page with the order details. You can see a full list of future participants on the "Who is joining" page.
How can I contact participants and how can they contact me if necessary?
Upon completing the registration process participants will receive your phone number so that they can contact you to make arrangements if necessary. Likewise, guests can send you a message through the Funzing system or through the email address connected to your Facebook account.
If necessary, you can also contact the Funzing team and we can help you connect to participants.
How can I cancel an experience?
You should try to avoid cancelling an experience or changing the date of a scheduled experience out of respect for the registrants. In case you absolutely need to cancel an experience, please contact us at email@example.com so that we can inform your guests as early as possible. If no tickets have been purchased for a particular experience prior to its cancellation, you can cancel the experience on you own by going to "My Events" > Clicking on "All Scheduled Experiences" > Clicking on the experience you would like to cancel > 'Delete event'. You can cancel just one date for an experience or all of the experience. Please note that if an event is cancelled and tickets had been previously sold for this experience, guests will be refunded in full automatically.
What should I do if I encounter a troublesome participant?
Rejection of participants is entirely your decision and is at your own risk. Please contact us with the registrant's details so that we can handle the situation going forward.
What should I do if guests don't show up?
It is advisable to start the experience on time and not to wait for latecomers. However, should no participants show up on time, you may choose to wait 15 minutes after which time you may decide to cancel the experience altogether.
How can I change my experience details or add new dates?
To change or edit the details of your experience (time, pictures, description, price, number of tickets, additional dates), click on your name or profile picture at the top of the homepage. Go to "Edit Experiences" > Click on "All Experiences" > Go to the specific experience you would like to change > Click on the specific detail that you would like to change (edit, add dates or gallery) Don't forget to save your changes!
