Eventbrite’s Essentials Package is just that: the essentials, and not much more. The fee structure for this package is 2% of ticket price + 79 cents per ticket, with no maximum fee. If you opt for this package, you’ll get access to Eventbrite’s online help center (their FAQ website). You will also get basic ticketing and registration, and you can have your event listed on Eventbrite’s site as well as their partner sites. This package limits you to just one ticket type.
Eventbrite’s Professional Package is your only choice if you have more than one ticket type or you’d like to customize your checkout form--pretty basic features for most events. The fee structure for this package is 3.5% of ticket price + $1.59 per ticket, with no maximum fee. If you choose this package, you’ll get all of the features listed in the Essentials Package above, plus analytics, payouts before your event, customizable checkout forms, multiple ticket types, a widget to sell tickets on your own site, and limited access to Eventbrite’s customer support team. Most event organizers will fall into the professional package of pricing, which is higher than comparable pricing on alternative platforms.
This is Eventbrite’s top-tier package. Selecting this option gives you all of the features listed above, plus more options that you can discuss with an Eventbrite salesperson. You will also need to speak to them about pricing, since this is a custom option. This package is best for enterprise-scale events that sell tickets at a very high volume. If this sounds like your event, it makes sense to weigh your options and get quotes from other companies to be sure you’re getting the right solution at the best price. We recommend checking out Showclix first.

The changes to Eventbrite’s pricing structure reflect a shift in focus. They want to spend their time and energy on big clients with specific needs. And that’s okay--there’s room for all types of ticketing platforms. But if you’re an event organizer who needs more than just the very basics, Eventbrite might not be the best fit for you. It’s easy to find a ticketing platform with a robust feature list and a low price. It’s even easier (and free) to sign up for one. Right at the bottom of this page.
