Ticket Fees

Online Sales

Any time a ticket is purchased with a credit card, the patron pays a per ticket service fee that INCLUDES the credit card processing fees (yes, we know that is unique). Our fee for tickets between $12 and $20 is only $1.50. Higher and lower priced tickets are adjusted accordingly as processing fees set by the credit card companies increase according to the ticket price.

For example: $12 Orchestra Seat + $1.50 BookTix Fee = Patron Pays $13.50 (Your organization gets $12).

There are no additional costs. The credit card processing is INCLUDED in the $1.50 fee. Service fees can also be incorporated into the price so it is not seen by patrons. Don't be fooled by other online ticket vendors who offer low ticket fees, then stick you with a bill for credit card charges at the end!

Cash and Check Tickets

For transactions through our point of sale system, where you accept cash and check tickets, we charge a printing fee of 25 cents per ticket and 5 cents per comp. You are only charged for tickets you actually sell, not that you hold or reserve. We do not charge for reprints or tickets printed for will call pick up. Remember, the printer and ticket stock is included at no additional charge.

Too Good To Be True?

Yes, you have read this all correctly:

  • We are charging a nominal fee that includes the credit card processing fees.
  • We are providing you with free equipment and ticket stock.
  • If all of your patrons bought tickets online, our system wouldn't cost you a penny!
What’s the catch?

We are producers and patrons ourselves and we set out to build the dream system. Read our customer reviews - we've succeeded!

Why We Do It?

We developed BookTix based on our experiences as both theater producers and as ticket buyers. We know that every penny counts when mounting a show first-hand and we honestly want to support your artistic pursuits rather than siphoning off resources that could be used on stage. We also attend our fair share of events and nothing deters a purchase more than costly service and transaction fees. Our entire team was shaped by its musical and theatrical arts education and we want others to enjoy the performing arts as we have.

How We Do It?

We have developed a model that feels fair and is appreciated by our clients and their patrons alike. We let our fantastic technology do the heavy lifting and use lots of efficiency to keep our costs extremely low. We have a straight forward model with no hidden service and processing fees.
