The event ticketing experience between TicketSpice and FareHarbor are vastly different. Here are a few things to keep in mind.
Not only is FareHarbor's pricing difficult to find, when you do book a demo to learn it, FareHarbor fees are a turnoff for many event organizers.
Not only do they prohibit passing on the 1.9% credit card processing fee, your customers won’t appreciate their extra 6% fee either.
Since you’re forced to use their payment gateway, FareHarbor holds the money and controls your refunds as well.
With TicketSpice, there is just one flat $0.99 fee per customer. You can pass on and keep any fees you'd like, and you don’t have to wait around to get paid as TicketSpice offers daily payouts.
The complex coding required to embed means you likely need to pay a developer to set up FareHarbor for you or attend a coding boot camp. Not only is this an inconvenience, but it can also hurt your SEO.
TicketSpice offers code-free setup that’s easy to set up and allows you to optimize your SEO.
In 2018, Booking Holdings (the group behind booking.com) acquired FareHarbor. Unfortunately, that means booking.com can access all FareHarbor customer data for marketing, targeting, and solicitation purposes.
With TicketSpice, you’ll have full data sovereignty and privacy. We’ll never sell, market, or share your data. Never have, never will.
Data sharing with affiliates
They have permission to use your attendees’ data for their internal business purposes and to share with their parent companies, subsidiaries, and affiliates.
Solicitation of attendees
FareHarbor’s terms of service include giving them permission to send offers and solicitations to your customers for other events.
FareHarbor generally waits until 4-5 days after your event to send you your funds. Eventbrite also reserves the right to withhold a percentage of your funds at its discretion.
Buyers tracked for advertising
FareHarbor has permission to track attendees based on behaviors and display ads for other events later.
