Covenient and affordable

I find picatic really helpful for our plays and concerts. It's easy to set up and manage events and it integrates with social media and WordPress sites really well. Given our tight budgets, the affordability is very important too. Picatic does what I need at a better price than the competitors. Now if they could only give me an Android check in app.

I've used a variety of ticketing systems this is the most flexible while being easy to use.

I've sold a lot of tickets to events through this system. It is my go-to ticketing system these days.

Pros
I run a series of festivals and always need different ticket pricing tiers and discounts. This system makes that really easy to do.

Cons
Could be some better exporting of sales for accounting. The door reports are great, but I'd like to export out a summary of sales for reporting to stakeholders and export transactions to an accounting system.

Picatic just became expensive

Reviewed 2015-12-28
Review Source: Capterra

We were all set to launch with Picatic/Wordpress, when the basic plan was stripped of all its value on 21 Dec, essentially forcing our client to consider moving to the Pro plan or find an alternative. There was no forewarning of this change, and I guess being the free plan they're entitled to set whatever limits they like. Still, they're now on par with EventBrite when all costs are tallied. Good luck if they can compete, but they're certainly no longer the price-disruptive startup they once were.

Pros
It's great to be able to create a variety of tickets and varying price points. The registrations are easy to export. The user interface is easy to use for me, and for people purchasing tickets.

Cons
I wish I could customize the ticket receipts. We use this for webinar registrations, so in practice it means my customers get multiple emails and that is confusing.

A classic site for ticketing.

The features are ample for a good ticketing site, and the customer service is really good.

Pros
It is easy to use this system. It is great it has different features available. A big pro is that Picatic is always innovating new features for a better customer experience.

Cons
The price has increased significantly over the past few years. This has been a challenge for our nonprofit organization that does not make as much money as a hospital foundation or foodbank so it is posing a challenge that could eventually direct us elsewhere.

Best online ticketing platform ever used!

Review Source: GetApp

Picatic is easier to use compared to any other platforms, even eventbrite. I love its user-friendly interface, which allows me to see my changes right away on the event page. It serves well as a stand-along page. So, I don't need to create my own website before start selling tickets online. And, it is the cheapest with all those great features! Recommend and free to try.

Pros
- Easy to use. - Clear pay structure. - Beautiful design. - Responsive customer support.

Cons
- Better mobile app will make it wonderful.

Picatic is a great low-touch event tool. They make setup a breeze, and most importantly, every new iteration has addressed previous concerns and feedback I've had, to the point now where I have no concerns left! Great software!

Great product. For the most part, easy to learn and use. Customer service is excellent. A couple of pointers would have made for a better experience first time through: - before I can click on "live" let me know what i *can't* change once its live i.e. web address - more clarity about pricing ... i felt that i had to do some searching to figure out what my ticket price would be, and whether I needed pro or not, and what I would need to purchase (in addition to picatic) to be able to charge for events. One very minor bugs: - in the event information panel, when I click on country, and then move my cursor to the next line, the country changes. This has happened with each of the four events I've made. I've discovered the workaround is to fill in the city first, then the country then the province i.e. not the order you've got them on the page. -

I love the easy of use with Picatic (invoices, comp tickets, etc.). I would appreciate more options to ask questions and collect further information from participants as they register. Additionally, a few of our events require ticket prices to increase over time (ie. early bird, regular, late registration), having a feature to set this up would be great. Also, sometimes we require various ticket types (ie. student, speaker, regular participant, etc.) having the ability to set this up would be great as well.

We'd been looking for a better ticketing platform for our summer camp for a while. PIcatic was better and less expensive than the competition. What's more, their service team was ridiculously helpful. Responses were quick, expansive, and personal. Couldn't rate highly enough.

Response from Picatic


We appreciate the love Jeremy. Thank you for choosing Picatic for your summer camp.

In the early stages of building Picatic we decided that great customer support would be a key differentiator for us over other ticketing platforms and we're glad it showed for you :)

Thanks again,

Pros
Ease of use, value for money, UI design and overall end-user experience. The platform is far more engaging for our use than its competitors, and easy to train staff to use.

Cons
Some elements could use great customization, including styles, surveys and text inputs, hopefully this will come at a later date.

Review Source: Capterra

Picatic events look great across a variety of platforms. It's easy to take those events and embed them in your own website for ticket sales (awesome). Is like to see more users of the service (not many people in my area use it), better event discovery features and better integration with the calendars we already use (Facebook events, for example). But the service is great and the price is great. There is even a free option. Customer service has been incredible, too. Awesome to see a service like this based in Canada.

I had a great experience

I liked my experience with Picatic... Unfortunately I did not advertise my page well because I had to use my website page because it has the price in Canadian and US $ at the same time. Now I am not sure if I can do both $CA and $US at the same time with Picatic. Also I use Infusionsoft online for my mailing list, JVs and everything else and I like the people who sign up to my workshop to go to my Infusionsoft and I can do that using Paypal even though I am looking for an alternative for Paypal and can work with Infusionsoft. I have been with Paypal since 2002 and one things that might take away from them is that I can't transfer my $US sales in US$ to Canada so I need to exchange first to $CA... I have now the Couples Vision Board coming out for next month and I will post it with Picatic and see... In light! Joseph Ghabi

Pros- great support. Cons- using Picatic to run a Community Association, with many programs/events has been somewhat challenging but OK. Lots of potential just not enough time available to master the program and use it's potential. Software changes took place at the end of 2015 and I have no idea what this Pro feature is costing our CA, but because I couldn't edit the tickets with the free version I signed up for Pro. Deadline for online was knocking at the door.

Pros
The program is very easy to add information and and having a standard template makes it consistent to attendees. Anytime I have a question I use the chat box and ALWAYS get an answer in just a few hours- that's amazing!

Cons
I'd like to have more functionally to choice what credit card processor we use. If a company is purchasing a table of 10 (for a different cost than 10 individual tickets) for the system to ask for each attendees name without having to create a survey. If you create a survey it take manual work to see on the entrance list who else is coming as we need names of attendees not just the ticket for entry.
