Value for Money

Comments: I had a event 9/30 -10/2. When my funds were available I transfer them to my bank account. I received the funds for one day. but the other days no funds were received. When I go to my dashboard it show $ 0.00 are available. I am still waiting for a response to my email. I am unlikely to use this service again.

Comments: The customer service was excellent. The replied to all my concerns.

However I found it much clunkier to use than Eventbrite. Maybe if I were entirely digital, didn't need a printed guest list, only checked people in online it would be better for our use.

The dashboard is cluttered with non-essential info, in my opinion. Single cancelled tickets take up as much space as an upcoming event.

EventBrite Facebook integration works much better, shows right up as an upcoming event on the Facebook page with one click.

EventBrite automatically sends us a check when the event is over. Universe, i must log into the account and request the funds.

The editing of an event in EventBrite is simpler; it doesn't require as much scrolling as the image heavy universe editing window.

I'm sure for some people Universe is what they are looking for. I have switched back to EventBrite.

Comments: I have not used Universe before but I am glad I decided to use them for our upcoming event. Patrick is my rep and he went above and beyond to make sure that I was able to get the full benefit of the site. I wasn't able to figure out how to post my event link on my Facebook page and he went ahead and did it for me. So far I am very pleased with my decision to use Universe. I will post another review once our event has passed.

Comments: Seriously the best ticketing software out there.

Super simple to set up, to integrate, and start accepting payments.

Have been organizing large events for the past five years, and have tried EVERYTHING. Ticketmaster, eventbrite, eventjoy, ti.to, eventful, bizzabo all of them are not as good as Universe.

Recommend highly!

Hopefully they will produce event apps one day - or sell event apps to event hosts to offer to attendees.

Comments: I tried universe months ago and was impressed. It was easy to use. Easier and more intuitive than Eventbrite. Unfortunately, I decided to go back in and post some more events and I spent 2 hours retyping my profile information in, because everytime it saved and I went to another page it disappeared. I also had to remove an old event that sold one ticket worth $0. I tried "deleting event' but that wasn't an option, I tried unlisting it. I tried giving a "refund" of $0 to the one registrant and no luck. I finally had to just ask them to close the entire account. Eventbrite is a lot easier to use than universe. Universe is "simple" without the tech issues, but there are some serious usability issues if you ask me. Not sure if the previous posts are 100% accurate. All 5's in all areas doesn't seem authentic. I'll see if customer service contacts me back about my profile issue. I'd hate to start all over again with eventbrite. Major time waster! I'm urked!

Their site makes it easy to create and track events. Their customer service is excellent. Syracuse International Film Festival highly recommends this site.

Comments: I find the majority of ticket sales happen the week leading up to an event. Universe is the easiest to use platform which comes in handy when you have to check for sales updates, pull reports, and update ticket prices/capacities. The support team is always available when I need them and are happy to suggest how I can get more out of the platform.

Comments: Pros: I have used a lot of various ticket software over the years. Being an event organizer for some time, I have found a lot of options on the market, however what stuck out about Uniiverse is their social approach to ticketing. They have great integration with our website, and the social-features for promoting my event were amazing. I feel as though its a modern take on ticketing, one which really works well with how people discover and book events.

Cons: overall a great experience. I think the biggest thing for most people is concern over learning a new piece of software, however I had no problems - the Uniiverse team was there to explain everything I needed and answer any questions I had!

Overall Experience: Great, we'll definitely be using Uniiverse again in the future!

Helped my sell 35% more tickets this year!

Comments: I ABSOLUTELY love Uniiverse. It's so easy to use and set up. I installed the widget on my website and sold tickets right there! I set up a discount for people who tweet about my events and this really helped spread the word. I sold 35% more tickets this year! Anna

Comments: I've used pretty much every event/ticketing site out there to organize events, and I'm so happy that I found Uniiverse. Their site is easy to use and browse and setting up events is simple - plus, they took a smaller cut of my ticket sales than any other site including EB ever did.

The reason I switched to Uniiverse over other ticketing set-up sites was that they let me embed a 'buy tickets' button into my site that kept visitors on my website rather than rerouting them to EventBrite's page to buy (or to another site like that). Plus, their customer service was SUPER fast when I had a question - thanks, Ben!

I was super happy with my experience, and I'll definitely be using them again! A++++++!
