There is a lot to be said for a company that just "gets it".

Reviewed 2 years ago

I have enjoyed partnering with Thundertix over the last ten years. Of all the vendors I have used in my 29 years in this business, there are probably less than 5 that just "gets it", and Thundertix is one of those few. The product works better than advertised, the support has always been top-shelf, and everyone has always followed through on what has been said. That carries a lot of weight with me, and I would give my complete endorsement of the Thundertix brand to anyone that is looking for an event management and ticketing solution. The software is an IT Department dream come true -- something that works so well that you practically forget it is even there. If we ever decide to resume any form of entertainment series again, the Thundertix team will be my first call.

Pros

From the day we began searching for an event management solution, Thundertix quickly set themselves apart from the competition with simple business ideals that are lost in today's business environment. Timely communication, quick answers, and a quiet confidence of knowledge and expertise stood out to me. The product is clearly engineered from the beginning with the non-technical end-user in mind, as my users effortlessly began using the software to manage events and ticketing without a barrage of calls to IT Tech Support.

Cons

I am hard pressed to find something that I liked least about the Thundertix package. If there were ever any issues that came up, they were resolved so quickly that it didn't warrant enough merit to be remembered.

Vendor response

Derriel, there are a few reviews we receive that are so glowing and make me so proud, that I'm left misty-eyed. Yours is one of them. Everything you have said about our amazing team is everything I have worked for in the 23 years that I've been at the helm of this business. The holidays are coming, and you gave us an early gift to start the season. Thank you!

Great product for large and small businesses

Reviewed 5 years ago

Overall I've had a wonderful experience with Thundertix. If I were running my own business this would be the first program I'd have in mind to utilize. The support/service team is excellent and I hope to maintain a good relationship with them.

Pros

Thundertix Is very customizable. My organization uses it for collecting payments for event tickets, intensives/workshops, and classes in our semesters. You can get the breakdown of each event easily and quickly which saves you times and shows you where to continue investing your time and products in. The interface is easy for clients to navigate and simple for staff members to learn how to utilize.

Cons

Functionality wise there are minor bumps in the road, but the support team is great with taking feedback, finding you an immediate solution, and taking your criticism into consideration for future updates.

Vendor response

If we didn't take critiques as invaluable feedback, we'd have a mediocre service undeserving of the five stars you gave us. So, thank you for giving us the opportunity to earn that rating by turning lemons into lemonade! It sounds like we've met a good number of your needs, and our support team took good care of you. Thank you for sharing your great experience!

Thundertix Review from Quincy Music Theatre

Reviewed 6 months ago

I would definitely keep it. I know the company is always working to improve it, and that adds to my incentive to remain loyal.

Pros

It has numerous features that fit our business needs and maintains our customer data in a single place. I have yet to learn all the features and mine this software to its fullest potential.

Cons

I had a very hard time setting up Flex Packs. However, it might have to do with the way a previous user set it up.

Life saver!

We were able to set up thundertix in one day and have our entire season up and running, with ticket sales connected to our payment platform instantly. We were taking orders within 24 hours of signing up with Thundertix. The online tutorials are clear and easy to follow. Their customer support is lightening fast in responding. I email them at any hour, even on the weekends, and they return my email...

Pros

simple setup easy payment setup fast and helpful customer support

Cons

costs more than some of the alternatives, but that's only relative to other alternatives that offer less. we have found the costs well worth it and have recouped all of the costs quickly given how stable the platform is and how easily it integrates into our sales channels.

Not for profit community theatre in Canada

Reviewed 3 years ago

Much more effective Reporting, ability to create own custom reports. REALLY appreciated being put on Maintenance Mode during pandemic. We get no assistance, and rely completely on seat sales. This allowed us to keep alive.

Pros

Setup and use is fairly intuitive, still need to refer to manual. Help upgraded, now most useful. Small changes to existing business processes, enabled streamlining and much more flexibility. Reporting much faster and more effective. Responsive to customer requests. VERY effective pivot to cope with Covid reality - thank you!

Cons

There are a few quirks, like the combination of Public Tickets in a Private event. And others. Read the manual, search the Help. You are most responsive to customer requests, so any issues are quickly and satisfactorily resolved.

Vendor response

I appreciate your feedback, Glynnis, especially with our response to Covid. Interestingly, some of those features we built to meet that challenge will stick around like timed seating and bulk refunds to a gift card, because our clients love them. (On the other hand, I hope that automated social distancing won't be necessary in the very near future!) When I read "public tickets for private events",...

A great reoccurring ticketing option

Reviewed 2 years ago

I have really appreciated your quick customer service.A lot of the problems could have been solved much quicker if Thundertix had revealed that your integration system with websites doesn't really work. It took much too long for Thundertix to communicate this and we lost many sales. I suggest you do not offer this option as it was a selling feature for me and I was very disappointed with is not working for several months and Thundertix not providing solutions and instead saying it must be the customers fault; until 6 months later after several emails Thundertix finally communicated that the integration doesn't work well and we should switch to being directed to Thundertix site for ticket sales. Your quick responses are great. I really like all the other services you provide. Easy to use.

Pros

Ticketing, coupon codes, analytics, are what I use most in this software and have been an essential part of what has helped out business to grow and be successful so far. Customer service tickets is an essential software service.

Cons

It was really important to me for the software to integrate into our website. This was a selling feature for me. It caused an enormous amount of troubles and problems for much too long. We switched to the customer being directed to the Thundertix site for ticketing, which is smooth and works well now and solved months of problems and lost sales.

Vendor response

Thank you for the kind words and the critique, as both are important to us. Chrome upended things when they stopped providing persistent "sessions" which track processes between your browser and ours. Sadly, we were forced to pull our support for iframes. However, we are working on two new options to ensure your customers have a great experience. Please keep your eye out for our newsletter updates, and thank you for sharing your thoughts.

The Best Online Ticketing Model

Reviewed 13 years ago

When we selected ThunderTix they were the only online ticket service that we could find that did not charge a 'per ticket service fee' to our customers. That model was vital to our selection as we do not believe online ticketing should be cost a premium over walk-ups. We knew that ticket fees never come down at other online ticketing providers, with some now charging over 50% of the ticket face...

Pros

#1 - No added/rising fees to our patrons! Improving interface Customized Compatible with Authorize.net Reasonable cost PDF Ticketing Easy to train Reliable and Available

Cons

Reporting still being developed/enhanced Better testing and version control has been requested No real-CRM capability for patron management/history Development seems focused on "new" features (i.e. Facebook integration) more than refinement of existing features (i.e. reporting) Error codes are confusing to patrons when transactions are not going through Transaction/Administration speeds varies (system tweaking is needed after most iterations)

Vendor response

A lot has changed since 2011 -- In February 2014, ThunderTix rolled out a full CRM for patron management. It includes complete patron purchase history, donations management, robust filtering to report on multiple levels of customer data. All error messages that a patron might see during the purchase process have been modified, all order data saved on a declined transaction, and all fields with problems...

ThunderTix Review

Reviewed 2 years ago

Thundertix has eliminated many of the issues that we were having with residents purchasing tickets. The process from announcing upcoming events to selling/purchasing tickets is easy for our staff and residents. The reports that we need to print are readily available and easy to understand.

Pros

ThunderTix is easy to use. Each month I am responsible for inputting our event tickets on line to over 19,000+ residents. This system allows me to get the information out to the residents ahead of each scheduled event and select a date and time for them to go on sale.

Cons

My only suggestion would to have a contact number for an emergency issue. The forum is great but if you need help immediately it would be nice to be able to contact a live person.

Vendor response

Denise, it sounds like you have quite a task managing events for enough residents to fill a small town! That's quite a task you have, and I'm glad to know we have a part in making you more efficient! You are correct that we don't have a contact number, but that doesn't prevent us from picking up the phone during critical times. We're available 24/7/365, and if you are yelling "Fire!", we promise it's never to an empty room. So, while I hope you never need us in an emergency, know that we're here for you should the need arise! Thank you for your great review!

ThunderTix works for us.

Reviewed 3 years ago

We changed to ThunderTix in 2013 from another well-known ticketing service. The transition was very smooth and made our internal operations much easier. Reports are excellent for tracking sales and bookkeeping.

Pros

ThunderTix integrates well with our website and makes the ticket buying experience very easy for our patrons. Ticket map shows our semi-thrust venue to our patrons. They offer many options to customize the program for your use.

Cons

We have no negative comments. ThunderTix is always ahead of the curve in terms of adding improvements. The feature request board is very helpful.

Vendor response

Steven, I swear you and Gail (another reviewer here) must work for the same organization. Both of you are loving our ease of use! As I mentioned to her, design is a huge component of what we do, and the result is evident in a beautiful interface that's easy for even the most occasional volunteer. Our feature request board allows you to share ideas and vote on others, so I'm glad you're appreciating that page! Keep your ideas coming, so we can continue to meet your needs.

Love building events with Thundertix.

Reviewed 2 years ago

I have been using Thundertix for about 5 years now and have been thoroughly satisfied with this event building software. Our Accounting Dept. appreciates the reports that I am able to generate for them.

Pros

Thundertix is very user-friendly and I love the efficiency in them answering your support requests. [SENSITIVE CONTENT] was especially helpful and did not disconnect until she knew my request was totally answered.

Cons

I do not have any negatives for Thundertix at this time.

Would you reach out for a quick chat with one of our team to share some feedback? We'd love to be the 5-star service you hoped we'd be! Thank you for your review and the opportunity for us to improve.

ThunderTix is amazing

Reviewed 8 years ago

Southern Arizona Arts & Cultural Alliance switched to ThunderTix for all ticket sales several years ago and its improved our ability to manage all facets of ticking for our events. As a non-profit, the bottom-line is also always a consideration and we find that ThunderTix is the most affordable ticketing service that gives the most bang-for-your-buck on the market.

Pros

The reporting features are a must have for us, especially for the ticket-holder list the day-of an event. We also utilize the plugins like Constant Contact which helps reduce time spent entering emails of attendees on the back-end before sending out a mass email. The ease of editing an event is also appreciated.

Cons

It takes quite awhile to populate/generate a report when you want to export sometimes.

Vendor response

My chest is puffed up just a little bit today after reading your comments, Shelby. I appreciate your feedback on how you are making use of our integrations and automation. We love a good timesaver as much as anyone! I'd love to hear some details on the report generation. If there's room for improvement, we'd like to take that task on!

Great product for our ticketing needs!

Thundertix has provided us with the tools we need to make purchasing tickets to our events all over the country as user friendly as possible. The added benefits like automated email reminders, product sales, waitlists and email marketing options have all had a positive impact on our customers and our sales.

Pros

We really like that is is user friendly for the customer, our reps and our users. The support is beyond excellent anytime a question or concern pops up. We get prompt and helpful answers.

Cons

ThunderTix has been a Great Solution!

Reviewed 3 years ago

We made the right choice years ago and have been happy with ThunderTix. It fits our needs and is a value. I think there are many features we could use, but handle in other ways. The team has been great all these years!

Pros

Easy to log on and access data. Easy to export reports. Interfaces good via a web link. ThunderTix team is very responsive to questions and to try to accommodate unique situations. We hold 2-5 special events per year and have used ThunderTix for years. They continue to add new features. We are not your typical event venue, and ThunderTix fit us best.

Cons

Setting up an event can be a little tedious, you really need to focus especially with a multiple day event. And I admit, I do not use it as much as I used to as our team has grown, so I do get a little disoriented. I think it is because the software offers flexible options.

Vendor response

Hi Barb! You are correct in that we add a lot of new features. Our code is updated daily, so it can be a little disorienting when you come back after a hiatus. But we are here for you! Our team will even hop on a Zoom call for one-on-one (or group) training, and that can be invaluable for those that want to make the most of all those new features. In sum, we love people that love us, and you happen to belong in that group. :) Thank you!

An excellent choice!

Reviewed 3 years ago

Top-notch

Pros

Our community theatre needed a new ticketing solution, due to rising costs of our past provider. ThunderTix was recommended by a sister theatre in the area and, after completing a review process, we chose them as a new partner. The transition has been seamless on their end, and customer service has been exceptional when we made a mistake in a data file and everything had to be ripped out and reloaded. Set up of new events is intuitive and easy, whether the event is general admission, virtual, or in our reserved seating theatre space. The cost is lower than or previous partner and the software is more flexible. Reporting functions that we have used so far have been excellent.

Cons

So far, we have not had issues with anything. All is good!

Crash, Boom, Bang! ThunderTix Makes Noise!

Reviewed 2 years ago

For the value, we have found this to be superior for our use. We are very happy so far. On March 14th, our first event goes live. We have tested, tested, and tested. If the system holds up, we will have exactly what we expected...........a great solution for our ticketing.

Pros

TTix was one of many ticketing packages that we researched. It was mid-range priced, had a very nice cross platform web based interface. We especially found that the product was easy to use, and when needed, video tutorials were provided. They also have a robust help forum, and a support ticket system that is quick and helpful. They also offer a paid top tier support package that we did not choose. We also liked their pricing structure that allows you to move to a maintenance status for "off times". Lastly, we found that the integration with our current STRIPE account was seamless.

Cons

The added costs made us hesitate a bit. For example, reserved seating is a must for our venue. In this package, you must have them create the seating chart for you (at cost). There is a bit of a delay in this process, and other competitors allow you to create your own charts. They also charge for adding Thermal ticket printing. We found that odd but ultimately decided not to offer Thermal ticketing. There is also added costs for using their email marketing.

Vendor response

Thank you, John, for shouting out those accolades for us! Our support staff will certainly love reading your comments. We realize that there are folks that might want to create the charts on their own, and one day we hope to offer that. Our design team is phenomenal, and they talk through the presentations with our clients to ensure we've covered every detail before ticket sales begin. Most of our clients appreciate that hand-holding, but we certainly can look at a self-serve model. The self-serve model will be coming for thermal tickets, so should you decide to add that, you can avail yourself of our designer. (You can design eTickets now.) Again, thank you for the fantastic rating!

I love having the ability for customers who want to sign up on line with a credit card can do so. They can leave a message easily and I know when they get an email.

Pros

I like after you take a few minutes getting reacquainted (we only use it once a year from Dec- May) it is very easy to navigate. I would not consider myself techi, but you don't have to be.

Cons

I would like to have more access to a live agent. When we started using Thundertix in 2014, I was able to place a call and get someone right away. I do not have to wait long to get a reply now, but I am old school and like to talk to someone.

Simple, Straightforward Ticketing with Excellent Support

The experience has been very positive over all. I find that other ticketing software I have used make it possible to do everything and impossible to do anything. They get so bogged down in customizability that it makes it very difficult to make the most basic thing a ticketing software needs: the ability to sell tickets. Our organization is a small, 100% volunteer community theatre. Without staff,...

Pros

ThunderTix is cost-effective compared to other options on the market. It's easy to use with intuitive and thoughtful configuration. The design is empathetic and prioritizes access in a way that is refreshing for ticket software. The support is outstanding and their documentation is comprehensive. Our customers think the process is seamless and clear, and we have had no reports of a negative customer experience to date.

Cons

Support is awesome, but figuring out how to contact them can get convoluted because it's clear they want to lead you to their truly excellent documentation first. That's fine for "how do I" style questions, but makes reporting bugs pretty difficult. When we were setting up ThunderTix, it kind of felt like we were paying for every little thing: venue configuration, having reserved tickets, purchasing our POS equipment, etc.-- we didn't feel misled by the indicated pricing on the website, though, simply because those are primarily one time expenses.

Vendor response

I love the fact that you find our system easy for volunteers to use, Renae! Our design team spends a huge time on little things to make it easy. And how about those support reps? They are anything but unsung heroes to our clients, and I know they'll appreciate your words. So, thank you! I'm truly sorry you felt dinged by small fees.

Customer Service A+

Reviewed 4 years ago

We have been using Thundertix for nearly three years, and have been big fans of the software from the beginning, but their response to changing needs during the COVID-19 crisis have made us ThunderTix fans for life. The Thundertix team has quickly and efficiently continued to add new features that are critical during this time. The newly added options to bulk refund tickets to gift certificates and add automated social distancing seating charts are GAME CHANGERS for our industry right now. They have saved our staff hours of time and energy by implementing easy to use, effective features. Plus, they are in my opinion the absolute best bang for your buck that you can get in a ticketing software. They have lower per ticket rates than most of their competitors with superior service.

Pros

The software is incredibly user friendly. The low per ticket cost was the greatest deciding factor for us, but we have been wowed by their customer service and breadth of features. We are a non-profit theatre company that operates 10 small venues (sub 300 seats). Things we love: assigned seating, easy transfer and refund options, PDF tickets, unlimited user accounts (we have lots of ticketing volunteers), integrated email, offer to round up to nearest $5 for donation, bulk discount code creation, season tickets, pre and post event surveys.

Cons

We would like to see more versatility within season tickets, such as creating season or package tickets across multiple venues. We would like to see additional versatility with coupon codes, such as creating a code that can be used only once per person.

Vendor response

I read that Covid gave companies a chance to shine by innovating to help meet clients through a very uncertain future. Proclaiming you are ThunderTix fans for life suggests we took that idea to heart -- and succeeded! Thank you for recognizing the contributions our engineering team made. Of course, pivoting took some wind out of our sails with respect to our product road map. But I'm thrilled to share that today, we support mixed general and reserved seating over multiple seat maps for season package tickets. Hopefully, as doors begin to open, you're enjoying those changes. Your ideas help sway our direction, so please share your coupon ideas on our feature request board. I'll cross my fingers that they become part of our platform. Thank you for your beautiful comments!

Incredible support, easy interface for admin & end user, love it!

Reviewed 8 months ago

Incredible. I had explored a few different sites and this one was the easiest to set up, with consistent, kind and useful instructions from the support team with any questions or needs I had. I would strongly recommend to anyone new to ticketing platforms, or to those who want a support team that follows through and cares about your outcomes. I will be continuing to use Thundertix for my client.

Pros

The ease of the platform to set up events, have multiple types of tickets, create a donation campaign, collect various reports. Most of all, I found their customer service to be one of the best I have ever encountered. They are kind, knowledgeable, patient, clearly communicate and helped me every step of the way in a stressful time to get the ticketing functions up and running for a client of mine. I adore their skill and incredible support!

Cons

While the report options are comprehensive, it is a bit confusing to know what reports will produce what data, and so while I am new to the site, I still have to hunt to figure out which ones I need and how to best display the needed information for tickets, and donations. But i'm learning!

Great features, functions and capabilities

Reviewed a year ago

We are an all-volunteer community theater. Thundertix allows us to concentrate on the performance instead of having to constantly worry about the back office functions. The software made keeping track of advance sales, season tickets and reservations very simple.

Pros

The ability to sell tickets to a performance in a variety of ways... season subscriptions, flex passes, gift certificates, multiple price points, discount coupons, "sections of the house".

Cons

The biggest challenge to us was that tickets sold "at the venue" were still charged the full rate, even when the customer paid cash. That caused us to not use the software at point of sale, and so our reporting was never clean.

Vendor response

Phil, I can tell that you are a professional in the theatre space, because your needs are exactly why we've tailored our platform for the arts. Did you know that you can add a fee specific for those patrons arriving at the box office that might be a bit higher than if they self-serve online? Processing orders online and at the box office in the system helps conserve all date around your patrons in...

I Heart ThunderTix

Reviewed 5 years ago

My overall experience has far exceeded my expectations. I have never under any circumstances had the level of attentive and courteous online customer service like I have received from ThunderTix. The customer support has been outstanding and I can't say enough great things about the immediate responses to questions, informative answers, and above all the courteous nature of each and every representative i've worked with thus far. I must add that this outstanding customer service started from the moment I opened a live chat with [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] and has continued with each and every time I reach out asking for assistance.

Pros

As an organization we needed a platform that would allow our attendees select their ticket price option as well as their seat location at the venue. Before finding ThunderTix, I researched and contacted over half a dozen different platforms that either offered one or the other but not both!!

Cons

Although ThunderTix has provided nearly everything we need, the only con I have is not visually seeing the current seats available from the seating chart. With 70 tables and 700 seats it has been a little difficult for users to determine available seating by being required to hover over each individual table to see how many seats are left. The hover feature is a nice option if registering from the computer. But if registering via mobile device a user must click on each table individually before seeing how many seats are left.

Vendor response

What a difference a day makes, Jessica! When you had your chart built, our table layouts were new. Today, we have beautiful, responsive seat maps that will work perfectly for you and your users without that extra click to see open seats. If it hasn't been updated, please reach out to our team to have it rebuilt at no cost to you. Now, let me turn my attention to one of the most beautiful comments I've ever read about our team: "I have never under any circumstances had the level of attentive and courteous online customer service." I cannot tell you what that means to us, and I can promise you our team will be moved by your words. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to work with you!

Children's Ministry Registration Made Easy

Reviewed 4 years ago

We use ThunderTix at our church to have parents register their children for Sunday Worship service(s). With COVID guidelines we feel this is a simpler way to meet social distancing and the cleaning factor of our computer KIOSKS. Both the pre school director and myself like knowing who will be in each service so that we can plan our teachers and class sizes. Parents have easily navigated our website to the link for ThunderTix and have been able to register their children.

Pros

I like that ThunderTix lets us imput dates and times for our events and services. I like receiving the email notice that someone has used ThunderTix. I like that we can make it cost nothing or something again based on our individual event. I appreciate the easy use for our families as they register their children for our Sunday Worship services. I like that parents are able to include a message in their reservation if needed.

Cons

When I change my setting from Public to Private I have noticed some of our parents still register their children for our Sunday Worship and they think I have received the notice when in fact I didn't because I changed the setting to Private. So, on a few Sundays I have missed some of the kids whose parents thought they were registered. To avoid this I have left the registration "open" but parents still think it closes at noon on Thursday.

Vendor response

There's a lot of good in your review, Robin but right now I'm focused on that little hiccup. I'm sorry if we had a bug at that time that caused a few parents to scoot their children in. Hopefully, it's fixed by now, and things are smooth sailing!
