Here’s How An Example Ticketing Page Is Typically Structured on Eventbrite

If you browse Eventbrite’s events, their page template looks similar to the example on the left. Looks pretty typical for the industry, right? TicketSpice structures your ticketing page in a completely different way. Here’s why the conventional ticketing template may be less than ideal for your event needs. Keep scrolling.

Here a few things to notice about this kind of structure

Eventbrite Logo On Top Of Your Page

The first logo on your ticketing page is not yours, it’s theirs.

When you host your event with Eventbrite, their logo adorns the top of your ticketing page. It’s on the top of nearly every ticketing page and not likely to be removed. For those who want to have their own logo be the first logo present on their ticketing page, there is a better alternative.

compare_eventbrite_branding

If branding is important to you, you’ll love TicketSpice. 

We’re not in competition with your Brand. When you host your event using TicketSpice, your branding and logo reigns supreme. Your logos, branding and colors are always top priority on your ticketing page, confirmation and emails.

Eventbrite Main Navigation

Alongside their logo, the top of your ticketing page contains their own main navigation. A typical Eventbrite ticketing page has over a dozen external links not related to your specific event.

compare_eventbrite_topnav

If you want fewer external links, you’ll love TicketSpice.

We believe the fewer unrelated links on your page, the better. We believe your buyers should have the fewest options to click away from buying a ticket as possible.

Unrelated Event Links On Your Page

Your ticketing on Eventbrite can contain links to other events at the bottom of your page. Here’s how they sometimes look.

anatomy_links

If you want zero links to other events on your page, you’ll love TicketSpice. 

TicketSpice never has a single link or advertisement for any other event on your page. Ever.

Higher the ticket price, the higher the ticketing fee.

Eventbrite’s fees can get expensive for high priced events. Eventbrite’s maximum fee per ticket is $19.95.

compare_eventbrite_fees

Eventbrite charges a ticketing fee of 2.5% + 99 cents per ticket up to a fee as high as $19.95 per ticketYou may choose who pays the fee (you or your attendees), but Eventbrite charges and receives the fee.

If you want to set and keep all ticketing fees, you’ll love TicketSpice.

TicketSpice ticketing fees are a flat 99 cents per ticket that are charged directly to you, not your buyers. If you want to add a ticketing fee to your page, you can set it to whatever you want and them keep 100% of it.

Answers to questions you might be thinking

What is your pricing?

99 cents per ticket. That’s it. Pay as you go. Try to get that simple of an answer from any other Ticketing company. See full details plus some extra features and upgrades on our pricing page.

Why is your pricing so low?

Shouldn’t you be asking why every other company has crazy high and complicated fees? Our technology is so intuitive and easy, it enables us to have a smaller staff limiting the crazy overhead. You would not believe our staff to customer ratio. Oh, and we don’t have mountains of debt or shareholders to pay either.

Do you have any setup fees or contracts?

Nope, we think contracts are as relevant these days as arranged marriages. We believe in honest and straight forward pricing without the bullying of contracts and cancellation fees. You can come and go as you please with no fees for setup, cancellations, or commitments.

Do you have maintenance or service contracts?

This is software, not an air conditioning unit. We think it’s pretty silly how many companies charge you for support. You can call in, chat, email, or even stop by for free.

Can I Export All My Data any time I want?

Your data belongs to you and you do whatever you want with it. You are free to export your entire account history, data, and all your Tickets to excel literally within seconds.

Can I use my own gateway? Or can you set me up with one?

Yes and Yes.

Your own gateway: We support 90% of the gateways on the market including Sage, Authorize.net, USAePay, SecureNet, First Data, Stripe, and many more. There is no additional fee to use a custom 3rd party gateway if you work with one of our processing partners. Contact us for more information.

If you need a gateway: Not only can we help you get one, we can make sure you get the best rates. We are your advocate when it comes to getting the best rates possible. Please see our pricing for more information on custom gateways.

 

How Do I Get Billed?

You get billed every 30 days to a card on file with us. We send you a summarized report of the Tickets and charges for the period. You can also elect to have the Ticketing fees taken out of each attendee’s payment should you like.

Do you have an API?

We sure do. Contact us for more information on the possibilities of working with our API.
