What are Eventbrite’s fees and available payment methods?

It's free for organizers to use Eventbrite if you're not charging for tickets! There are no monthly charges, enrollment costs, or setup fees. If you’re charging for ticket sales, our fees vary by package. In the U.S., our Essentials package costs 2% of the ticket price and $0.79 per paid ticket plus 2.5% payment processing per transaction; our Professional Package is 3.5% of the ticket price and $1.59 per paid ticket plus a 2.5% payment processing fee per transaction; our Premium Package has custom pricing. We designed each package to fit the specific needs of our organizers. eblink{Find the package that’s right for you=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=40418}.

TIP: You'll be paid in the eblink{currency=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=3452} you charged attendees — we don’t support currency conversion — and your bank must be located in the country/region supporting the currency in order to process your payout.

PRO TIP: View a eblink{side-by-side comparison=>https://www.eventbrite.com/organizer/pricing} or eblink{complete inventory of features=>https://www.eventbrite.com/organizer/compare-packages} in each package.

NOTE: If you're attending an event, check out this article to eblink{learn more about how Eventbrite works=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/lifestages?focus=AttendingAnEvent}.

Understanding fees

We only charge fees when you make a sale, and it's important to make sure your eblink{payment processor=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=3771} is set up before that first ticket sells. There are 2 types of fees you'll want to know about: 1. Eventbrite Service Fee — Varies by package. In the U.S., you have - eblink{Essentials Package=>https://www.eventbrite.com/organizer/essentials}: 2% of the ticket price + $0.79 per paid ticket (no maximum fee) - eblink{Professional Package=>https://www.eventbrite.com/organizer/professional}: 3.5% of the ticket price + $1.59 per paid ticket (no maximum fee) - eblink{Premium Package=>https://www.eventbrite.com/organizer/premium}: custom pricing eblink{Learn which package and pricing is best for you=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=40418}. 2. eblink{Eventbrite Payment Processing fee=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=4373} — Varies by package. In the U.S., you have - Essentials + Professional Packages: 2.5% of the total transaction (no maximum fee) - Premium Package: custom pricing If you use eblink{PayPal=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=3461} or eblink{Authorize.Net=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=3457} to collect payments, the Eventbrite Service Fee is the same. You pay their fees outside of Eventbrite.

TIP: eblink{Eventbrite Payment Processing=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=4373} is the default way to accept payments when you set up a paid event. In most cases, it’s the cheapest and smoothest option for organizers and attendees.

PRO TIP: In the U.S., fees are charged for eblink{tickets sold through our Eventbrite Organizer app=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=5782}. You can pass at-the-door ticket fees on to your attendees — eblink{Learn more=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=3811}.

NOTE: If you’re using the Essentials or Professional package and collect payments with eblink{Eventbrite Payment Processing=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=4373}, we charge the payment processing fee on the total amount of the transaction. When you pass on your fees, the total amount of the transaction includes the ticket price and the Eventbrite Service Fee. In contrast, we charge your Eventbrite Service Fee on the ticket price you set.

Fees for your event

Eventbrite Service Fee and payment processing fee amounts depend on a few factors, all set by you: • Your eblink{Eventbrite package=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=40418} • eblink{Ticket price=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=4373} for each ticket type • eblink{Currency=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=3452} you're using to take payments (see chart above) • eblink{Payment processor=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=3771} selected for collecting online payments View a breakdown of your fees by hovering over the icon next to "Buyer Total" for each ticket type under Step 2: Create Tickets on your Edit page. If you're eblink{using PayPal=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=3461} or eblink{another payment processor=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=3771} to collect payments, this icon only shows the Eventbrite Service Fee — not the payment processing fee they charge. You can see any fees to date by viewing or exporting reports: • eblink{Sales Summary report=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=3278} • eblink{Orders report=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=3278} • eblink{Attendee Summary report=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=3505} • eblink{Itemized Payouts=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=3509} • eblink{Event invoice=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=5232} — Only available with eblink{Eventbrite Payment Processing=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=4373} in Australian, Canadian, and New Zealand dollars, as well as in Euros, and Pounds sterling.

EXAMPLE: A local brewery charges US$100 per ticket for their annual microbrewing conference. They’re a growing business and use the Professional package with Eventbrite Payment Processing to collect the money. Based on their package, ticket price, and currency, in this example the Eventbrite Service Fee is $5.09 per ticket and the Eventbrite Payment Processing fee is $2.50 per ticket (total: $7.59 in fees per ticket). The brewery chooses to pay both fees instead of passing them on to their buyers and will receive a payout of $92.41 per ticket sold.

TIP: You can eblink{choose whether to stick with the default setting of passing fees on to your buyers or absorb the fee yourself=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=4375}. The PayPal and Authorize.Net payment processing fees cannot be passed on to your buyers as these are charged by PayPal and Authorize.Net, respectively, outside of Eventbrite.

PRO TIP: Eventbrite fees are returned if orders are eblink{refunded=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=3399}. If you’re using PayPal or Authorize.Net, the return of any fee they charge is determined by their system and not Eventbrite.

NOTE: Orders completed using an eblink{offline payment method=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=3389} (pay by check, pay by invoice, or pay at the event) are subject to the Eventbrite Service Fee only. The option to register using an offline payment method and pay at the event is distinct from recording cash payments with the Eventbrite Organizer app. Also, if you eblink{collect donations=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=6474}, donation tickets are subject to both the Eventbrite Service Fee and Eventbrite Payment Processing fee.
