Sell tickets directly from your website

Great news! We’ve just introduced website widgets that allow you to sell tickets online direct from your website. The customer can go through the checkout process without leaving you site, and all you need to set it up is  a couple of lines of code.

See the example below:

Sell tickets free!

When you search for “Sell tickets free” online you get a whole load of companies all saying “Our service is free”. But dig a little deeper and you’ll find that what they really mean is that they will pass their fees on to your customers in the form of booking fees. If you tot up these fees, you will see that they amount to rather a lot of money.

A cheaper alternative to Eventbrite

Hey, welcome to the Ticket Tailor blog. Ticket Tailor offers an online ticket selling system with a difference: we don’t charge any per-ticket fees, and instead a predictable low monthly fee. If you are new round here, check out our home page.

We think Eventbrite is cool. It has a load of great features and has done a lot to disrupt an old-fashioned ticketing industry. But Eventbrite is expensive and those fees can really add up.

Website Integration Exhibition: Part Two

After our first exhibition, we’ve received requests to see more of our web integrations.  So we’re flinging open the doors once again and bringing you a few more examples of our work.
