Your event went on sale and event-goers are eagerly claiming their tickets — some are even buying a few extra for friends or family. Wouldn’t it be nice to use that revenue now rather than wait until your event is over?
With Eventbrite, you are in control of the money made from ticket sales, registrations, and other add-ons. Read on to find out your payout options and get tips for investing revenue back into your event.
Choose your payout schedule
Eventbrite gives you the flexibility to choose when you get paid. Whether you need access to funds before your event or after, select a payout schedule that works for you.
Choose from one of the following options:
- Every week: Payouts are released every Wednesday on a rolling basis as tickets are sold.
- Every month: Payouts are released on the 1st and 15th of each month on a rolling basis as tickets are sold.
- Once after event ends: Payout is released four business days after your event ends.
Eventbrite sends an email to inform you about your payout, but you can also check the status in your account after your event has ended. The payout summary shows the ‘Sent date’ or the ‘Expected sent date’ when the payout will be sent to your bank.
Keep in mind that transfers to your bank aren’t immediate. Depending on your bank it may take four to five business days to receive your funds after a payout has been released.
Note: Eventbrite offers three payment methods: Eventbrite Payment Processing, PayPal or Authorize.net. To schedule payouts, you must select the Professional or above package and use Eventbrite Payment Processing for payments. Eventbrite’s Payment Processing offers exclusive benefits, like the ability to pass the payment processing fees to ticket buyers and sell tickets on platforms like Facebook.
How smart event creators use payouts
Getting paid is a great feeling, especially if you’re already thinking ahead to how you want to reinvest that money back into your events.
Here are a couple of ways to keep reinvest in your event:
- Pay your vendors. Vendors can be just as big a draw for some attendees as the talent you book. That’s why keeping your accounts with your vendors (and your relationships with them) in good standing is important. On-time payments are key to building that trust.
- Put a down payment for next year’s venue. Competition for popular venues can be pretty tough. Once you’ve found that perfect space to hold your event, use the revenue from tickets to secure it and encourage satisfied attendees to come back for more.
