No more worrying about receiving funds until after your event ends.

Expert Customer Support Go to a lot of ticketing sites, and you’ll notice that you have to fill out a help form and then you’re stuck waiting for a response, by email. This is unacceptable, especially if you’ve run into an issue with the system you’re using and it’s urgent. No software is perfect, and having support on standby ready to assist is extremely important. Ticketbud offers phone, email, and chat support and is expanding its team all the time.


Our software gives you complete control over your promotion, marketing, and attendee management. Thanks to our partnership with Zapier, you can connect Mailchimp and a host of other services to help you sell more! Helping you get more sales is our primary mission, so we have tools to assist you in every way possible. We’re in the business of making your event a crowning achievement and an experience that everyone is talking about afterwards.

Competitive Pricing

Ticketbud's platform is always free for free events. You can see in the image compared with our main competitor, we offer a significantly reduced charge.

Ticketbud defaults to passing the service charge off onto your attendees, which makes Ticketbud 100% free for you to use! If you’d like, you can choose to incur the charge yourself.

Here, you can see the comparison of Ticketbud's fees with our main competitor's "Pro" pricing. A pretty nice difference! Are you running a non-profit event? You can get an even better rate for the service charge that’s passed on - 1.75% + $0.99. Just contact our Customer Experience team with details regarding your event, and we will get you all situated.

Daily Payouts

The third advantage that Ticketbud has over Eventbrite and other ticketing companies is that we offer daily payouts. When you sign up with our internal processor, you will get access to daily payouts for free. This means that you’ll be getting revenue from the previous day deposited directly into your account. No more waiting until after your event to get paid. Eventbrite does offer the option of weekly payouts, but you have to go through a rigorous process and you’re not guaranteed it. Most other alternatives to Eventbrite are similar in this approach. Plus, it’s still weekly - you have venues and caterers and other expenses to pay. Getting paid daily is the best and only choice.

Sell tickets on Facebook with a simple integration. Send email invitations to your lists and push directly to social networks. Our online ticketing system publishes your event to our network of listing sites and encourages attendees to share your event with their friends. All promotional efforts can be analyzed with our referral tracking system so you optimize every last marketing dollar.


Your Event Is The Star


Example of management tools with Ticketbud's event registration on multiple types of platforms.

A major style break occurs with Ticketbud versus Eventbrite - we are organizer focused, whereas they are attendee focused. Unfortunately, this has some implications for the organizer. Any event on Eventbrite will have a section on the bottom informing the potential attendee of other events happening in the same area, at the same time. So they might have been interested in your event at one point, but then they might see something they like even more down below. As we are Organizer focused, each event page is self-contained and there is no possibility that a potential attendee could happen upon a different experience.

We also include cross-event sales reporting to guarantee a precise control from before your event begins to when it all wraps up. Every ticket purchase gives you valuable attendee data, and these insights can be used by planning committees and organizations so you can grow.
