AttendStar – The Better Eventbrite Alternative.
Eventbrite fees are often a source of pain for event organizers. In fact, Eventbrite fees and payout processes are two of the most common complaints that motivate ticket sellers to find an Eventbrite alternative. Fortunately, AttendStar is the Eventbrite competitor that gives you more from your event ticketing software but for much less paid out of your own pocket.
AttendStar has been helping event organizers sell more tickets for years and has gained a reputation as one of the best Eventbrite alternatives when it comes to online ticket sales.
Here’s why you should choose AttendStar over Eventbrite to ticket your next event.
Sell More Tickets Without Paying Eventbrite Fees
One of the biggest frustrations when it comes to selling tickets through Eventbrite is its percentage-based ticket fee.
While AttendStar ticket buyers pay a flat fee per ticket, the Eventbrite cost is a flat fee plus a percentage of the ticket price – so tickets for Eventbrite often cost more.
Using a $50 per ticket event as an example, AttendStar ticket buyers would pay around half as much in fees than they would using Eventbrite.
And remember the Eventbrite cost continues to increase with the ticket price because of its pricing structure. That doesn’t happen when you sell tickets through AttendStar. With AttendStar, you only have to pay a flat fee no matter the ticket price.
In other words, there is a cost to you as the event manager when you use Eventbrite that you won’t incur with AttendStar. Your ticket buyers pay less with AttendStar, and it’s free for event managers with no out of pocket expenses.
Get Paid Faster
Another one of the most common complaints we hear that makes ticket sellers look for an Eventbrite alternative is the extended wait to get paid.
If you use Eventbrite’s default payment system and schedule, you won’t get paid for sold tickets for days after your event. In fact, this is true for several other online ticket sales sites as well.
As an event manager you’re most likely managing up-front event costs, such as venue, supplier, and staffing costs, so you need to get paid fast.
With AttendStar you’ll get your money as tickets are sold – whether you sell 50 or 50,000 tickets.
Reduced fees and getting paid faster are perfect reasons to choose AttendStar but we know these benefits only matter if you actually sell tickets.
AttendStar is not your average event ticketing software. Unlike Eventbrite and other ticketing platforms, AttendStar offers so much more than a ticketing. We’re event management and marketing experts, and we built a lot more features into our software than you can get with Eventbrite or similar systems – features designed to increase event attendance.
You get more free promotional tools with automated email marketing, social media marketing, integrations and more to increase ticket sales.
Other options you can access include having a dedicated team member for your event, parking, traffic and logistical support, professional marketing support to maximize your ticket sales, and much more.
Get More Help
There’s nothing more frustrating for a ticket buyer or an event manager than not being able to get help when you need it.
Sometimes you may just have a simple question, or perhaps you have a technical question and you need an answer fast.
Unfortunately, when you try to get help from other event ticketing companies, the support is often limited to online help center articles, or you would need to submit a form and wait days for a response.
AttendStar is different. We offer more support hours than most other event ticketing software companies.
You and your ticket buyers can get technical, sales, and marketing online support, or you can speak to us via email seven days a week. You can also get phone support Monday through Friday from 9am to 5pm, Central time.
