Here is the complete text of our press release: 

Eventbee brings pricing disruption to the event ticketing market, introduces flat $1 per ticket fee model, regardless of ticket price!

Eventbee Inc., the online Event Management software company trusted by thousands of event managers and attendees, announced today the release of Eventbee 3.0. The new release introduces the ground-breaking $1 per ticket service fee model, regardless of ticket price. This disruptive pricing model essentially grounds the traditional percentage-based pricing model that has been perceived as an industry standard until now.

Eventbee believes that an Event Manager or Attendee should not be paying more for the same piece of software just because the ticket price is more. Percentage-based pricing is old school thinking. Eventbee is here to change and challenge how things work in the Events industry. With this new release, Eventbee changes the dynamics of the Event Ticketing market, moving away from the rest of the competition to provide more savings to Event Managers and Attendees.

  • Sounds like a great idea – lowering the barrier to entry is a great plan. With a fee so low did you consider going 100% free and just relying on Ad revenue? Not being critical just intrigued as to your pricing rationale.

    Good luck with V3.0

    Cheers – Eric
