For most community-based organizations cost is very important. So we want to be as open and up-front about this as possible.
Your Total cost for TicketAssistant is made of up of 3 parts:
All of these systems will charge you a small fee for each credit card transaction. For example - for PayPal it is typically 2.9% of the total purchase price plus 30¢ per transaction, though registered charities may be able to get an even lower rate (check with PayPal for details). So this part of your "total cost" will vary depending on how many tickets you sell and at what cost.
We don't believe in surprises or hidden costs. To allow you to get a better idea of exactly how much it's going to cost, we've created a handy Cost Calculator below that will allow you to enter your own seating, pricing, and online sales projections and see what the bottom-line costs will be. Try it and see!
Here's a handy cost estimation calculator you can use. It allows you to try various online ticket selling scenarios and see exactly what it's going to cost. Just enter your test scenario into the yellow form fields and click on Show Me! button to see the results below. For convenience you can set up multiple scenarios side-by-side to see how various projections change the results. (We've set up a couple of examples so you can see how it works)

What about the other guys? Well - we've looked at some of the major players - Vendini, BrownBag, ShowClix, Tixado. They're all a lot more expensive. Their 'Cost per Ticket' runs from $1.60-$3.20 per ticket. More than twice what you'll pay with TicketAssistant. How much do you want to pay?
