Pros

I've been working with Purplepass for a few months now, and they are by far the best ticket company to partner with: their customer support is outstanding.
I love how easy it is to use and how helpful the staff is when I have have a question or need to find a solution.
Best and very reliable solution for ticketing. Easy to set up and very good integration.

Pros

I have enjoyed the user friendliness of EventCreate. The ability to build a site and accept payments all in one has been an amazing thing.
I was impressed how simple it was to piece together a very great reflection of our passion behind our event. It is easy to use for the website editor as well as the website visitors.
The revenue generated by this site was critical to its success. The website was fantastic and easy to edit.

Cons

Some of the features are a bit confusing to get a handle on.
Especially over facebook, instagram, and client advertisements. If I were able to pull the report that is shown on purple pass I would be able to upset the marketing packages you offer to our clients.
Event day promotional ticket sales on tablet can be confusing.

Cons

I lost the first set of data because I closed the flashing reminder.
The functionality can be a bit weird and stagnant.
For some functionality to become available for use, you need to pay to use the platform. This is typical of any application, so this isn't necessarily a con.

Excellent Platform for Event Management

I love EventCreate and the ease of creating a professional event registration and website page. The page looks professional and is very easy to navigate on the backend and for users.

Pros

The ease of creating the event registration, ticketing options & design of website!

The processing credit card fee is very similar to other sites.

Creating a webpage for high school reunion

Reviewed 2 years ago

They have been amazing in answering my questions, and making it easy to understand

Pros

It's easy to use, I can move, change photo's around, set up ticketing and emails.

Cons

A few things about moving this around on a page, being in graphics, that's something I use for balance.

Great website for event management

Reviewed a year ago

Appears to facilitate easy management of ticket sales for an upcoming event - very satisfied!

Pros

Very easy to set up and use - my first time using a ticketing software for an upcoming charity event and it has been very convenient

Cons

None so far - happy with the software, seems worth the purchase

Makes Conferences Easier

Reviewed 3 months ago

Very positive. EventCreate helped make our State Master Gardner Conference a success from registration and ticketing options to informing attendees about the event. The staff always responded quickly with help if we needed anything.

Pros

Affordable, very helpful and responsive when I needed help. Many useful features on the registration website.

Cons

Not an issue with them, there is a learning curve with any unfamiliar format.

Excellent tool for any non-profit!

Reviewed 3 years ago

We needed an online ticketing platform, especially with some of our patrons being a bit less local. This provided a great solution. I have really enjoyed the ease of use of this platform and would absolutely use it again.

Pros

I love the ease of use. Even the free version offers enough features for a non-profit to find useful and offer online ticket sales affordably.

Cons

I haven't found a feature I didn't like so far. The only downside is that the free version doesn't offer notifications when tickets are sold. Understandably this is a paid feature. I may upgrade next time.

One time Event

Reviewed 9 days ago
Pros

The least expensive level was enough for me to do most of the things I needed. I did have to upgrade to the second level, but my event was a unique one. It took me awhile to set up, but it was easy to go through. The customizations for my event made it look polished and professional and there were plenty of options to make it look personal. I was proud to publish it once everything was in place. You can tell the company took their time to not only make it as user friendly as possible, but they also seemed to have thought of everything you would need to plan, manage and administer a well thought out event. I would highly recommend this service to anyone looking to find an affordable, well thought out, all encompassing way to showcase their business or event.

Cons

I signed up for the lowest level and trial, then continued working on my ticketing options. But when I needed to add more options for tickets, I had to upgrade again, and my “free trial” immediately ended, which then charged me the fullest next level right away. I ended up cancelling the first subscription, then had to go back in and signup for the second level so I could get the free trial incentive. It would be nice if the ticketing options were somehow communicated ahead of time so the user isn’t thinking they’re finishing up, and then surprised with a pop up saying you can’t do that unless you upgrade.

EventCreate: Do yourself a favor and use it.

Reviewed 3 months ago

This site has made our event possible. Our small nonprofit would not be able to hold its event without it. I had no problem learning the system used to create the event website. The online purchasing and ticket tracking system is absolutely stellar. Overall, it has been a joy to find all the things we needed located in one site. We will use again.

Pros

This site's capabilities, ease of use and affordability are the best around. After researching for some time, it was by far the best in all three aspects. Our nonprofit will use it for all future events that require registration, online payments and ticketing. It's an amazing site full of incredibly useful functions.

Cons

I'm not certain what to say here because I didn't really find a con. I think if there were more options for the website building aspect, maybe that would help. However, it has all the pieces we absolutely had to have. if there were a "third of a page" item option for maps, that might be good.

No Customer Service

Reviewed 5 days ago

My overall experience was great, until I needed assistance. Obtaining assistance is practically IMPOSSIBLE as there is no customer service to contact and the administrators of this software/company are non-responsive. Unless you feel like you will never have an issue, PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS PLATFORM FOR YOUR TICKETING OR EVENT MARKETING NEEDS.

Pros

Setting up the personalized event website was relatively easy. However, I ran into an issue with my account and there is no way to contact customer service. You cannot even chat and when I asked for someone to contact me through the website, I was not helped. I am unable to correct my site or shut it down because there is no way to contact anyone at the company.

Cons

Customer Service is very important for any business. It is one thing to have poor customer service, but it is a totally different beast to have NO CUSTOMER SERVICE. I ran into an issue with my account and there is no way to contact customer service. You cannot even chat and when I asked for someone to contact me through the website, I was not helped. I am unable to correct my site or shut it down because there is no way to contact anyone at the company.

Great for personal or corporate use!

Reviewed 2 months ago

Really easy to use and functional. Makes planning events so much easier and a breeze to manage. Great for personal use and based on all the capabilities like insights, campaigner being able to send emails and generate reports, ticketing and check in options, and more it seems like it’d be amazing for corporate use as well as for planning larger events.

Pros

It’s really easy to use. Caa customize templates to your liking. The backend dashboard is comprehensive and easy to navigate. The RSVP function is great and easy to manage. The insights are helpful! The pricing is fair

Cons

I wish it was a little bit easier to navigate between the backend dashboard and the event site. I wish it was a little bit easier to try out different themes and switch them while keeping the original content.

Easy and Fast Setup

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

EventCreate makes it easy for you to have your event sales up and running in no time. Great programming options and with the ability to install a Facebook pixel the platform really helps you market tickets. It is also one of the most affordable ticketing solutions out there! I highly recommend jumping on it and building out your event and then launching with the trial.

Cons

So far I haven't found much I don't like. A wordpress integration would be nice. The ability to setup an installment plan for tickets would be a nice feature.

Simple and User-Friendly Interface, but Limited Scalability Considerations

Reviewed a year ago
Pros

The platform's simplicity and user-friendly interface have been major advantages. I found navigating and setting up my events easy, even with limited technical knowledge. The intuitive design and straightforward steps helped me quickly create event pages, set ticket prices, and manage registration. One of the best features of EventCreate is its ticketing and registration system. It allows me to effortlessly create customised registration forms, and collecting attendee information with ease.

Cons

EventCreate might not be suitable for larger-scale or highly complex events. While it excels in simplicity and ease of use, it lacks certain advanced features that event organisers with specific requirements might need. It's essential to evaluate whether the platform aligns with the complexity and scale of your event before committing to it.
