Ticketing Software FAQs

  • What is ticketing software?

    Ticketing software allows you to sell, distribute, and scan tickets for events. These solutions track ticket inventory, facilitate payment, and accept tickets on the day of the event.

  • How much does ticketing software cost?

    Ticketing system pricing varies based on event frequency, number of tickets sold, method of sale, and ticket prices. Most systems charge less than $1 in fees per ticket sold, while others charge a combination of a set per-ticket fee plus a percentage of the ticket price. If you host many events, some solutions offer a monthly subscription fee option (around $50 to $100 per month). Enterprise solutions can cost $1,000 per month or more.

  • What are some common ticketing software features?

    Common features include attendee customer relationship management (CRM), ticket sales, mobile ticketing, barcode scanning, reserved seating, and seating charts.

  • What are the benefits of using ticketing software?

    Using a ticketing solution instead of managing sales yourself can eliminate errors such as over- or underselling seats at an event. Ticketing software can help you promote your event online, accept online orders, and distribute tickets via email or to mobile devices. A ticketing system can also receive funds from online sales, ensure accurate attendance at your event via scanning features, and keep an accurate attendee headcount.

  • Are there free ticketing software options?

    Many ticketing solutions are free if your event is free, such as Eventbrite and Universe, while most paid systems offer free trials. Entirely free options include TicketSource and Bookitbee.
