TicketHost

The Smart Choice

Fee Comparison

The TicketHost fee structure consists of 2 elements and is transparent and fair for both Ticket Buyers and Event Organisers.

  1. Host Fee - Our fee for providing the TicketHost service. (1% + $0.60 per ticket)
  2. Booking Fee - Covers the bank fees and costs that TicketHost incurs in processing online payments.
    The Booking Fee for credit card payments is 0.8%
    As there is minimal or no cost to TicketHost on orders paid via EFT, PayPal or an offline payment, there is no Booking Fee charged by TicketHost for those payment methods. 2

In contrast, Eventbrite charge the same, higher fee for all payment methods that they offer.

The table below shows the comparitive total fee structures for different payment methods along with the total fees for a sample order consisting of 1 x Adult ticket ($60) plus 1 x Concession ticket ($40).
