SimpleTix Supports Local Businesses

Local businesses are the lifeblood of communities everywhere. As a drive-in theater, zoo, pumpkin farm, or event venue, supporting your customers and your business means streamlining the ticketing options. You need an Eventbrite alternative, like SimpleTix.

SimpleTix helps keep the cash flowing, reduces your workload, provides flexible ticketing, and leaves a positive impression on your customers. Find out how partnering with SimpleTix gives you and your customers the best ticketing experience.


As a zoo, event site, or anywhere that uses ticketing to help pay your bills, you know how challenging it can be to keep cash flow positive. This is especially true when you have to return funds to a customer. Certain ticketing platforms – like Eventbrite – slow down the process, both in collecting payments and refunding them.

You don’t need to waste time and energy trying to figure out how much money is coming and when it will be posted to your bank. SimpleTix is the only ticketing platform that partners with Square to offer you more options. Should your customers need a refund, they can choose to receive the refund as a gift card to use at a later event.

With SimpleTix you get:

  • Instant payouts help stabilize cash flow and pay your bills.
  • Square gift cards let ticket holders opt to receive their refund in the form of a gift card, which lets your business hold onto the cash.
  • SimpleTix’s low price helps businesses keep more money in their pocket.

Eventbrite Alternative

Streamlines Your Workload

You have an event to manage, a zoo to run, or a festival to host. Ticketing needs to be the last thing on your mind. With an Eventbrite alternative, such as SimpleTix, you can streamline your workload. You’ll be able to run your event with fewer staffers while maintaining your sanity.

The SimpleTix ticketing platform is designed to reduce administrative burdens, maximize presale ticketing, provide mobile ticket scanning, and minimize lines during gate transactions.

The SimpleTix platform gives you the ability to:

  • Decrease the burden of manual administrative tasks.
  • Allow ticket purchasers to change the date/timeslot of their ticket without assistance from staff.
  • Maximize presale tickets.
  • Find other budget allocations for resources like parking.
  • Allow customers to buy tickets without staff assistance.
  • Provide mobile ticket scanning to keep the line moving with minimal staff.
  • Use the Square partnership to reduce gate transaction congestion.

Flexible Ticketing

Certain events call for extra flexibility. For events such as concerts or festivals occurring over multiple days, SimpleTix is the obvious alternative to Eventbrite.

SimpleTix offers great features, such as festival mode to let customers buy tickets for multiple days and events efficiently. You can also use timed entry, social distancing, and contact tracing to help maintain safety. The safer your event is, the more likely you can keep the doors open. You also get unlimited ticket types and promo codes. Customers like getting a good deal, and SimpleTix makes it easy to delight your customers with the best deals and experiences.

Speaking of flexible ticketing, let’s take a second to talk about payouts. Did you know that Eventbrite holds your proceeds until weeks after your event has ended? Eventbrite may even withhold a percentage of your funds due to no fault of your own.

Delayed payouts make it harder to organize and run your event. You can’t budget or plan your event when you don’t know what money you have and what money you may or may not have. This can put you at needless risk by making you overextend yourself financially to cover other event costs. Why put yourself through all that stress?

Using an Eventbrite alternative will likely pay out sooner. In fact, SimpleTix pays out instantly. You don’t have to wait or wonder if the payment will go through. Once a customer purchases a ticket, their payment appears in your account. With SimpleTix’s instant payouts, you have more clarity around your budget, and can allocate funds to other important aspects of your event, such as parking, bathrooms, food and drinks, and those unbudgeted emergencies that tend to pop up.

Leave an Impression

With all the features SimpleTix provides, it’s easy to leave a positive impression on your customers. Not many ticketing platforms offer you and your customers an equally good ticketing experience.

SimpleTix helps venues promote their next event. You’ll be able to collect contact info for customers and use the SimpleTix email platform to contact them about future events or deals.

In addition, you can share the event page on social media and grow your follower count, which also helps with future events. You might have the best event on the planet, but if people don’t know about it, it’s like it doesn’t exist. So, promote your events and deals.

Does Eventbrite partner with Square? No, they don’t. SimpleTix is the only ticketing platform and Eventbrite alternative that partners with Square. Your customers will enjoy having more options for payment, using a gift card to receive a refund, being able to give the gift card as a gift, and more. A positive ticketing and event experience goes a long way to retaining your customers.

SimpleTix Loves Putting You in Control

Even though you might sell tickets to people across the nation, it is good to know you have a ticketing platform that understands the needs of your local community. They are the customers most likely to buy tickets for multiple events. Families want to spend a nice day outside at the zoo and using the Zoo Software with SimpleTix makes it easier than ever to provide an excellent experience.

Choosing a ticketing platform for your local event, zoo, aquarium, festival, or drive-in theater is important. Choose an Eventbrite alternative that will put your event first and give you control over your ticket site.

Unlike Eventbrite, SimpleTix lets you create a customized ticket site with your own photos, colors, branding, and event details through an easy-to-use website builder. The SimpleTix event sites make it easy for your customers to buy tickets quickly on mobile devices, desktops, and tablets.

Even if you already have a site for your event, you can easily embed a widget to use the simple, convenient sales functions of SimpleTix on your site. Stop wasting your time and energy on a ticketing platform that doesn’t put you, your business or event, or your customers first.
