Easy to Use

2018-10-24

Pros

I guess what makes me go back to Eventbrite is that it is easy to use. I've never had a problem with customer service.

Cons

You cannot accept Paypal payments which gets annoying when my patrons often want to pay via Paypal.

Response from Eventbrite


Hi Gil,

We appreciate you taking the time to submit your feedback! Eventbrite is an internet platform that 3rd party event organizers around the world use to sell tickets and registrations for their events, therefore they decide which Payment Processor to use for their event based on the available options for their currencies.

Our Payments team is always exploring offering more currencies in the future, although I can't provide an exact date for when this would be delivered.

If you have additional questions or feedback, feel free to reach out to our support team via, www.eventbrite.com/support. Thank you for using Eventbrite!

The one thing I love most about Eventbrite is that I can have my payments go directy to Paypal

Cons

The one thing I do not like about Eventbriet is that they do not take their fees before paying out your money and yu wind up left with a bill.

Highly Recommend for People Wanting to Create an Event

2018-09-24

We organize a good amount of events. We need to use this to organize data.

Pros

The app is great to check people into the event. It is a easy and simple to use for user and it compiles all the data for users.

Cons

A lot of people struggle to pay because things are linked to PayPal.

Awesome Software

2018-06-05

Although I create event on FB, Eventbrite is a trusted site to collect payments.

Pros

I also love the fact that I can payout my money to PayPal instead of waiting until the event ends.

Cons

There is nothing I least like about EventBrite. Eventbrite is the only software I use to create online events.

Used to sell tickets for TEDxDesignTechHighSchool.

2018-07-17

Pros

It's easy to set up a page for your event, and easy to advertise. It's great that you can edit the URL for your page, so that it's easier to remember than something with too many numbers, etc. I also really like that you can do different ticket types, and that the payout method is rather easy.

Cons

It costs extra money to do many things such as using separate ticket types and you also aren't able to change your payout type once you have sold your first ticket (EventBrite Payment Processing vs. PayPal, etc).

Eventbrite makes event promotion and ticket sales easy

2019-01-07

Eventbrite's interface is clean and simple, and figuring out how to customize your event listing is fairly easy. It is also easy to go back in and edit and event. You can export all the registrations into a spreadsheet for easy check in for ticket holders. Eventbrite also helps boost your event because of the search engine optimization and Eventbrite's own tools. Eventbrite will recommend events based on your region or social contacts, thus encouraging more registrations. Yes the service is not free, but it is worth the cost and saves time in terms of registering people and promoting your events.

Pros

Eventbrite is very easy to use. It is an easy tool to use to sell tickets and it is pretty straight forward to set up events on Eventbrite and promote them online and via email.

Cons

The cost of using the service could be seen as a downside when there are other ways to sell tickets that are free (minus credit card or paypal fees).

Event Planning and Tickets Purchasing

2018-12-28

Pros

There is also a Paypal option which is helpful.

Cons

It is hard to tell fraudulent events on this platform and difficult to get a refund of payments. Other than that I have had no negative experiences.
