Eventbrite Lowers Pricing in Ireland for Robust Ticketing Platform



Eventbrite, the world’s largest self-service ticketing platform, has cut its fees for all tickets and registrations sold in Ireland. The new fees are effective immediately and apply to all tickets and registrations.

Eventbrite now charges 2% Eventbrite Payment Processing Fee (down from 3.5%), plus 2.5% Eventbrite Service Fee and €0.75 per ticket sold. The total Eventbrite Service Fee is now capped at €9.95 per ticket.

Charities and not-for-profit organisations can benefit from even lower fees of 2% Eventbrite Payment Processing Fee, plus 2% Eventbrite Service Fee plus €0.75 per ticket sold. The total Eventbrite Service Fee for charities is now capped at €5.95 per ticket.

“Eventbrite provides a seamless and reliable ticketing platform”, says Ann O’Dea, CEO of Silicon Republic, who used Eventbrite to sell registrations for the Inspirefest conference at Bord Gáis Energy Theatre earlier this year. “The drop in fees is great news for organisers and buyers alike, and it’s great to see Eventbrite supporting the Irish events market by reducing barriers to entry.”
“Since we opened an office in Dublin last year, Eventbrite has enabled thousands of Irish event organisers to spend less time handling ticket sales and to focus on running fantastic events instead – like Pieta House’s Darkness into Light Runs or The Shannon Air Display”, says Marino Fresch, Eventbrite’s Country Manager for Ireland. “We’re confident that our even more affordable pricing gives Irish event organisers an added incentive to use Eventbrite to stay in control of their ticket sales.”

Free features remain free
Eventbrite's service remains free for free events. The company's full service is available to organisers of free events for no charge. Organisers only pay fees when they sell paid tickets. In other words, Eventbrite only makes money when organisers make money.

There are also no fees for ticket refunds, nor any additional fees for using Eventbrite’s proprietary mobile app Eventbrite Neon, a ticket management solution for smartphones and tablets (now also compatible with the Apple Watch), Eventbrite’s comprehensive online tool for easy creation of seating plans for reserved seating, or any of Eventbrite’s other product features that help organisers create, promote and sell out events.

Eventbrite’s payment system boasts a range of perks including a seamless purchase experience, reserved seating capabilities, and easy management for refunds and chargebacks. The company will also continue to support PayPal and provide multiple payment options.
