    Interested in this eventbrite alternative - but the link to it doesn't

    Asked by madhatters on May 23, 2017 at 03:49 AM

    interested in this eventbrite alternative - but the link to it doesn't work.....help!

    I could use it right now....we are setting up a festival booking form and this exact scenario has popped up. We are just about to increase ticket prices to cover the paypal fees.

    This sounds like the perfect fix.

    Please let me know what to do!!

    Did you mean the link on the blog? If you are looking for the Ticket Purchases Widget, you can find it on the Form Elements under the Widgets tab.


    You can also get it by visiting this link: https://widgets.jotform.com/widget/ticket_purchases

    that doesn't seem to be the thing that's talked about in the pop up message.  This is a widget that tells people how many tickets are remaining.  The Eventbrite alternative that is mentioned says "no-cost ticket sales" etc etc......so which payment provider do I use that doens't charge transaction fees?

    currently using paypal, but its costly.

    This clearly states an altenative....it says to check out "JotForm, the Eventbrite alternative" but the link doesn't work.

    Payment processors will still take their fee's but we do not charge anything in addition to those fee's.  I do not believe any payment processors allow for processing payments without fee's or at least a subscription to the service.  I know dwolla charges a subscription fee instead of a per transaction fee. 

    The link in the guide should be to the ticket purchase widget my colleague referenced.  Not sure why it is currently to the JotForm website.
