The best alternative to Eventbrite for selling tickets

by Tixtree on Mon, 21 Aug 2023 in Event planning

When it comes to hosting events and selling tickets online, finding the perfect ticketing platform can make all the difference. Event organisers need a solution that is not only reliable and cost-effective but also offers an exceptional user experience. While Eventbrite has been a popular choice for many, there is a compelling alternative that surpasses expectations—Tixtree.

Let's delve into why Tixtree is the unrivalled alternative to Eventbrite, delivering an array of advantages that set it apart from the competition.

Unbeatable pricing that empowers your success

While Eventbrite includes both a percentage and a flat fee per ticket, so you’ll pay £0.59 + 6.95% per sold ticket, Tixtree takes pride in offering the lowest fee on the market. With a small fixed fee of £0.30 per ticket sold, with no additional booking fees, we ensure transparency and fairness in our pricing. We recognise your hard work in achieving your goals, and we are dedicated to supporting you in preserving your achievements. This transparent pricing structure serves as a catalyst for your success, ensuring your events thrive without financial constraints. Have a look to our pricing page.

Instant found release

Tixtree never holds your money. Once a ticket is sold, you will receive your funds instantly into your Stripe account, without any unnecessary delays. We understand the importance of timely access to your earnings, and our streamlined payout process ensures that you can get your funds as soon as they are sent. By default, Eventbrite payouts are not instantaneous; they are set to occur three days after the completion of your event. However, you also have the option to adjust the payout frequency to weekly or fortnightly.

An effortless and intuitive ticketing experience

Tixtree's platform shines for modernity and intuitiveness. With its user-friendly interface, you can effortlessly set up and manage your events. The user-centric design guarantees a smooth and enjoyable experience for both organisers and attendees, simplifying the ticket-purchasing process and elevating overall satisfaction.

Elevating performance to new heights

In today's fast-paced digital landscape, a website's performance can be the determining factor between success and failure and cannot be underrated, especially on mobile devices, since users prefer mobile devices for browsing, searching, and purchasing.

Low performance can directly influence user experience, conversions, search engine visibility, and brand reputation. Google PageSpeed Insights, a tool that evaluates website performance, has assigned Tixtree a score of 92 out of 100 on mobile and 100 out of 100 on desktop, while Eventbrite has a score of 38 out of 100 for mobile and 58 out of 100 for desktop.

Commitment to data ownership and event focus

When it comes to data ownership, Tixtree places your trust and privacy above all else. Unlike many competitors, Tixtree takes an unwavering stance on data ownership. We never engage in remarketing, reusing, or reselling the data collected from organisers and attendees, and we limit communication to a single email confirmation for ticket buyers. Unlike Eventbrite, which leverages ticket buyer data to promote other events to them, we never do it, assuring that the focus remains on your event.

Responsive support that fuels your success

Tixtree stands out with its exceptional customer support team, poised to propel your event to new heights. Known for their friendliness, responsiveness, and proactive nature, the Tixtree support team is always ready to assist you. We understand the importance of timely assistance, ensuring a smooth and successful event experience. With Tixtree, you have a reliable ally by your side every step of the way.

Harnessing independence

Tixtree puts event organisers first as our sole stakeholders, free from external influences. With unwavering dedication, we make decisions solely in their best interests. On the contrary instead, as a publicly traded company, Eventbrite has shareholders focused on maximising profits. This emphasis on financial gains can prioritise shareholders' financial gains over customer satisfaction or the long-term interests of the customers.

Making a difference for a sustainable future

Tixtree goes above and beyond mere ticketing services, actively contributing to a greener planet. For each ticket sold, 5 pence are dedicated to funding tree-planting projects, rejuvenating degraded ecosystems, and actively reducing CO2 levels. By choosing Tixtree, event organisers become part of the solution, contributing to global environmental efforts while enjoying a robust ticketing solution.
