Brown Paper Tickets
"The first and only fair-trade ticketing company." The philosophy of Brown Paper Tickets (clearly stated in their Bill of Rights) is simple: service fees should be fair and consistent.
The pros: 24/7 help center and email support, along with no contracts and no minimum or maximum attendees.
The cons: Fees are covered by the ticket buyers and there is a processing fee beyond the face value of the tickets ($0.99 + 3.5%).
“We believe that anyone can be an event organizer.” Like most online event ticketing services, Eventbrite is free for free events—its templates also live up to the tagline: they’re incredibly easy to use.
The pros: The “Eventbrite at the Door” iPhone/iPad app allows event organizers to manage tickets and RSVPs at the door.
The cons: Again, fees are tacked on to the ticket price of your events ($0.99 + 2.5%). www.eventbrite.com
“Don’t pass ticket fees on to your guests.” A flat fee at Ticket Bud covers everything from email and social media marketing to tickets and an RSVP page. Also, you can check out your ticket sales in real-time.
The pros: Pay $19.99 to sell unlimited tickets for a one-day event or $39.99 for multiple-day events.
The cons: Planners are still responsible for the PayPal processing fees associated with ticket transactions.
