5 reasons to choose Ticket Tailor as a free alternative to Eventbrite 

You may or may not have heard that Eventbrite is shaking up its pricing plans – with one of the main changes coming in the form of a new ‘Organiser Fee’. This means that anyone selling tickets to an event with more than 25 attendees on Eventbrite will need to pay a fee just for listing the event – regardless of whether it's free to attend or not. It’s important to note that the Organiser Fee needs to be paid on top of all the other usual Eventbrite fees, and how big it is depends on the size of the event. In a nutshell, Eventbrite is no longer going to be free to use for most free events. 

There is the option to choose Eventbrite’s subscription model instead, which means you’d no longer need to pay this Organiser Fee. But, as you know with subscriptions, this ties you in to using their service which can feel like a pretty big commitment, as you have to pay the monthly subscription fee even when you aren't running events! 

All these changes might have you wondering if there’s a better, more affordable way to ticket your own events. Especially if you run them with free entry, and can’t afford for an Organiser Fee or monthly subscription to eat into your costs. 

Keep reading to learn a bit about Ticket Tailor, how we’re different to Eventbrite, and why we could well be the perfect ticketing alternative for your free events (and paid events, for that matter 😌).

  1. A fair, simple pricing structure – genuinely free for free events

    This is a big one! Our pricing structure is very simple, transparent and fair. If you run free events – you will literally never have to pay us a penny. It’s totally free to create a Ticket Tailor account, and free to list your events. We only charge a small flat fee per ticket sale for paid-for events. 

    There are absolutely zero hidden fees to be aware of here, either. Our pricing is this simple:

    Free events: Free (really, truly, free. It’ll cost you zero pennies, cents or any other currency to list and set up event registration for your free events).

    Pre-pay: From as little as £0.20/$0.26 per ticket when you buy credits in advance for your paid-for events.

    Pay-as-you-go: £0.50/$0.65 per ticket when you pay as you go. 

    We believe this pricing structure makes us one of the fairest, most affordable ticketing sites out there. Woohoo! 🎉

  2. Total flexibility – no tie-ins, no contracts

    There’s no such thing as a Ticket Tailor contract or subscription. You can play around with our platform as much as you like without having to commit to anything. It’s free to get set up, and free to start listing, meaning you can give us a go without risking any of your hard-earned cash. 

    Once you get going – you can continue to enjoy full flexibility for both free and paid events. Our simple credit and pay-as-you-go pricing options mean you only ever pay for exactly what you need. Nice. 

  3. Your data, never ours – end of story

    Unlike Eventbrite, we don’t hold onto your data or use it for our own marketing purposes. In fact, your data remains just that – yours. We like to think the info you gather about your customers is yours to do with as you like, and that it really has nothing to do with us. Call us old fashioned.

  4. A certified B-Corp – we care about (a lot) more than money

    Never heard of a B-Corp? No worries. It is a bit jargon-y. Basically, it means we, as a company, have been rigorously assessed against a set of wide-ranging standards relating to the planet (looking after it 🌍), our people (looking after them 💛), and social performance (focusing on doing good, not just making profit).

    We are the world’s first fully independent ticketing company to become a certified B Corp, and we genuinely (genuinely) care about balancing profit with purpose.

    That’s why we are so thrilled to have been officially certified as a B Corp, which involves making a legal commitment to having a material positive impact on both people and the planet. 

    If all this aligns with your own values – we reckon we’ll get on pretty well! 

  5. Genuine, round-the-clock support & a community vibe 😎

    If you need help with any aspect of using our platform, we’ll be there to chat to 24 hours a day (as in… the real, human us, not chat-bot versions of us). We aim to get back to all queries within five minutes (and are often quicker), no matter how big or small your event is, or what your issue is. We also run regular webinars to help our users get the absolute most out of our platform, and make a point of genuinely listening to the feedback and suggestions we get. We’ve already implemented lots of features based off what our users have told us would be useful – and we’re always open to new ideas! Basically, we’re all one big happy community 🙌.

That’s a wrap! We hope this article has been insightful for you – it would be great to see you on the platform soon! In the meantime, if you need any help setting up an event or have any questions at all, just pop us a message on our website chat and we'll get back to you in minutes.
