We just launched an exciting new feature on The Bash! If you are available for virtual parties and events, you can now easily display this offering on your profile.
Opt in to Virtual Events on The Bash
With virtual gatherings and parties on the rise due to COVID-19, we want to make sure vendors who offer virtual services are able to easily display it on their profile for party planners to see. By opting in to this new feature, an icon paired with "virtual services offered" copy will be added to your profile so party planners can see that you provide that option. We recommend opting in to this feature only if you are willing and able to provide your services virtually via online calls.
Here's an example of what this will look like:
To opt in to this feature, follow these steps:
Log in to your account.
In your “Profile" tab, click the edit button next to Profile Details.
Select "yes" for “Are you available for virtual parties?”
- Click the orange "update profile" button at the bottom of the page.
Note: This virtual event feature is only available to vendor categories that we believe are able to easily support a virtual event. If you don't have this feature available and are offering virtual events, please contact us!
Receiving Virtual Requests on The Bash
You will receive a request for a virtual event just like any other request on The Bash. However, party planners will now be able to indicate on their request if their event is in-person, contactless, or virtual. When you receive the lead, their preference will be indicated on the request under "Event Info."
