Case Study: DeMolay International

About DeMolay International

DeMolay International is a non-profit organization that holds many types of events all over the country. People come from all over the world to attend the Demolay International Annual Convention, which is an event that aims to prepare young men for happy and successful lives through character building and leadership training over the course of a weekend. From registering for the convention, to paying for meals and hotel rooms, there is a lot of thought and planning that goes into this event.


As a non-profit, DeMolay International was having trouble finding an online platform that would allow for them to design a detailed registration form at a very low price. They needed their form to be dynamic and customizable, and they needed to ask attendees questions based on which tickets they were choosing. DeMolay also wanted to use their current merchant account to accept credit card payments, and they wanted everything to be very user friendly and easy.


DeMolay International decided to take advantage of Eventbee’s custom events pages. They needed to offer a wide variety of options to attendees, and Eventbee was the perfect fit. They could set up an event page for people to register for the event, reserve hotel rooms, pay for meals, and answer questions related to the purchase. Eventbee made it possible to handle all of these tasks in a simple and efficient manner.

They also took advantage of Eventbee’s flexible credit card processing capabilities. Now, DeMolay International could use their existing account to process payments for their event tickets. Eventbee also supports by Paypal, Braintree, and Stripe credit card processing.

Eventbee’s discount for non-profit organizations was also a huge help to the company. DeMolay International was able to take advantage of the “Eventbee for Common Good” program, which aims to help non-profit organizations save money on online ticketing. Eventbee offers a 25% discount for 501c3 non-profit organizations. This was perfect for DeMolay International.

The company also enjoys the fact that Eventbee has a great customer service staff that can always help. They stated that “The customer service staff is excellent and they were always able to answer my questions or provide a solution when asked.” Eventbee is perfect for DeMolay International because they value the fact that they can give unlimited options, while keeping their costs low.

“The customer service staff is excellent and they were always able to answer my questions or provide a solution when asked.” -Gary Denklau, DeMolay International

Introducing Eventbee Network Ticket Selling

Wondering how you can take advantage of growing emphasis on social media these days? Eventbee has created the solution. Welcome to Eventbee Network Ticket Selling, the new way of selling tickets on Facebook!

Eventbee Network Ticket Selling gives event managers the ability to easily market to the friends of their attendees. All an event manager has to do is set a commission rate on each ticket sale. Then, attendees post a customized link on their Facebook walls, and for every ticket sold through that link they are rewarded in the form of Bee Credits. Attendees can use Bee Credits to make future ticket purchases or redeem them for other promotional incentives.

This is what Josh Catone, Features Editor of says

“Facebook has an amazing platform for virally publicizing events, but right now, it doesn’t have any way to support ticket sales. Eventbee solves that problem using Facebook Connect in a very clever way. Not only can events be promoted on Facebook via your friends’ news feeds, but Eventbee offers a way to turn your Facebook friends into ticket sellers.”

Network Ticket Selling is not trying to have attendees spam friends. But instead, attendees are just receiving a small incentive to let their friends know what event they are attending, and why they should come as well. Eventbee believes that the word of mouth approach that Network Ticket Selling uses will create a more credible message when attendees inform their friends, resulting in easy and greater numbers of ticket sales.

Eventbee’s patent pending technology allows you to create effective viral marketing campaigns and sell more tickets by effectively tapping attendee’s social graph on Facebook.

New concepts we are introducing part of this feature release:

Bee Credits (B$):

Attendees get rewarded with Bee Credits for promoting events. Bee Credits can be used towards future ticket purchases and other promotional incentives. The value of the Bee Credit always stays one dollar or above.

Attendee Accounts:

To keep track of the Bee Credits earned we are introducing attendee accounts. Sign up is very simple and quick with the integration of Facebook Connect. Attendees are able to view purchases, print tickets and also promote events on their Facebook with simple clicks in attendee accounts.

How do I enable Network Ticket Selling on my event?

Its very simple:

1. Login to your account at Eventbee

2. Go to event manage page of the event you would like to enable Network Ticket Selling

3. Click on Network Ticket Selling link in Advanced section of the left Menu bar

4. Enable Network Ticket Selling and set commission on each ticket sale
