On-Site Payments? Work With the Equipment You Already Have
We are the only ticketing solution that works with the Square payment processor—we’re a preferred partner—and Boca ticket printers. That means you can use our Box Office app from the start to make on-site payments a breeze. Just use your Square card reader to accept credit or debit—Box Office handles the rest and prints to Boca in a snap.

An Eventbrite Page Looks Like This
That’s an Eventbrite page to the left. In the teal area you’ll put your event information. But then what’s that below? Other people’s events! Some may not conflict with yours, but some definitely might. Here’s the point: why would you want to advertise someone else’s business—or even lose your ticket sale—by promoting other events on your own page? That’s why your SimpleTix page will never promote someone else’s event.
Here a few things to notice about this kind of structure
Unfortunately, It Gets Worse…
Yep, that’s an Eventbrite logo on the top of your page. Now maybe you don’t care. But maybe you don’t want someone else’s logo up there. Maybe you’re putting on a black-tie gala and a giant Eventbrite logo looks crass. Maybe you just resent someone else’s advertising on your page. Either way… if you think it’s tacky, SimpleTix is a better alternative. With us, the first thing your attendees will see is you.
At SimpleTix, We Think These Things Matter
Did you know that a typical Eventbrite page has nearly 15 links to other things on the Eventbrite site? Not SimpleTix—the most visible link your attendees will see is your "Get Tickets" link.
Best of All, Your Event is Your Event
When you use SimpleTix to sell tickets and manage your event, your attendees will see your logo, branding, and colors—not ours. And we’ll never market to your ticket-buyers.

Why Pay More For Less?
At $1.59 + 3.5%—and no top limit on a maximum fee per ticket.—it just doesn't make sense to use Eventbrite. Choose SimpleTix and you could save thousands on their high fees.
Eventbrite Professional charges a ticketing fee of 3.5% + $1.59 per ticket with no maximum fee per ticket or registration. You can choose who pays the fee (either you or your attendees), but Eventbrite always charges it… And always receives the money.
Need to refund an order?
While Eventbrite does allow you to make refunds, their fees are nonrefundable.
Imagine you’re hosting a charity dinner with $500 seats. Ten guests can't make it, and you need to refund their orders. At this point, you would lose over $315 due to Eventbrite fees. At SimpleTix, we know managing events is hard, so we always refund our service fees.
If you want to set and keep all ticketing fees, you’ll love Simpletix.
