Ticketleap and TicketSpice might seem close in comparison, but they are not. For event pros, there is no comparison to TicketSpice. Here's 9 key differences between TicketSpice and Ticketleap.
With Ticketleap, they control and keep all ticketing fees on the page. Worse, they disallow you from adding additional fees and line items to the page, robbing you of valuable revenue potential.
TicketSpice’s fees are flat 99 cents. But that doesn’t mean you cannot add additional fees, surcharges and markups. Pass them along as one fee or itemize them out however you like. Discover a new profit center with this game-changing feature. You set them and keep 100% of whatever you add.
By default, Ticketleap holds 100% of your payout until 5 days after your event unless you apply and hope to get approved for their FastPay service – which approvals are currently limited during Covid. Even with Fastpay, you won’t receive payouts the week of your event, when a substantial portion of your revenue is generated.
Instead, Ticketleap holds them until 3-6 business days after your event. With TicketSpice, you can get daily payouts even the week of your event.
With Ticketleap, your ticket orders are set in stone. There are no changes, modifications, upgrades, or downgrades allowed to existing ticket orders. To change a ticket order in Ticketleap, you must refund them and tell your attendee to start over. To heck with that.
TicketSpice lets you modify any ticket order and make modifications seamlessly and effortlessly. The system recalculates the total and charges (or refunds) the original card on file.
With TicketSpice, your data belongs to you. It is never ever shared with any 3rd party for purposes of advertising, direct marketing, or offers. Period.
If you care about the ticketing experience and having your brand showcased, Ticketleap may not be the right solution for you. Their ticketing page template places their logo (not yours) at the very top of your ticketing page and limits your customization to a couple settings. Then at the bottom of their page, they have multiple links directing buyers to Ticketleap’s site.
Selling merchandise, product, or other on-site upgrades on Ticketleap is a pain. Instead of a field on the ticketing page for these types of upgrades, Ticketleap requires you to present them as tickets. Not only is that an awkward way to sell upgrades, they charge an additional ticketing fee of $1 + 2% before credit card processing per item.
With TicketSpice, you can beautifully sell merch, products, and other upgrades in a number of ways with no ticketing fees. Credit card fees still apply.
If digital marketing on Facebook and Instagram matter to you, don’t look to Ticketleap to give you any insights on ROI for your ad spend. They neither support custom Facebook pixel events nor Facebook’s conversion API to show you how your advertising dollars are working.
TicketSpice offers a deep tracking and conversion integration with Facebook so you can track and view your digital marketing dollars.
If you want to stand out and have a ticketing page that matches your website and brand, don’t use Ticketleap. Ticketleap gives you a rigid event template that limits you to a hero image and accent color. You cannot change layouts, fonts, flow, order, or arrangement of your ticketing page. (And trust us, we’ve tried.)
With TicketSpice, you can create a stunning ticketing page that is only limited by your creativity. Every TicketSpice page is customizable with nearly zero restrictions. Don’t take our word for it, try it for yourself.
The bigger the ticket price, the bigger the bite Ticketleap takes out of your revenue. Ticketleap’s fee is $1 + 2% before credit card fees of 3%.
With Ticketleap, you are unable to add your own fees or markup any existing ticket fees. Industry standard practice is ticketing fees go to the platform on which they’re sold. If you want industry standard, go with Ticketleap. If you want better, customizable and awesome, go with TicketSpice.
If you're looking for a system that is truly like your own, you might want to pass on Ticketleap. Here's a feature comparison of Ticketleap and TicketSpice, based on Ticketleap’s features as of May 2022.
