If anybody has info on how to sell tickets online, then avail the buyers of a printable ticket without also giving them the ability to print as many as they'd like, please advise.

I use eventbrite to handle ticketing for my shows. It costs me nothing as the ticketing fee is charged to the purchaser. (though you can choose have it deducted from your amount if you choose) The money usually hits my account around 5 days after the event.

How much do they charge the buyer, and how small an audience size would you recommend this for? I should have clarified that I'm doing 40 to 50 for an audience, Charging $35. (and that's not all net to me)

My monthly show is 50 tickets per show. The $30 ticket has a $2.64 fee attached and the $42 ticket has a $3.30 fee.

Thanks, guys. The ticket fee for M Sini's shows seems very fair. Pizpor, I'm assuming these folks send out paper tickets. Both interesting, but more so the electronic version. Does eventbrite satisfy the concern with illegal duplication of printing?

Eventbrite provides you with a guest list. You can also use their app to scan in tickets which will satisfy the concern of duplication. That said, we've never had an issue.

Eventbrite sounds good. I will give them a look, and I appreciate the help.

Eventbrite I know has an app as well, which is good for people who are mobile and looking for things to do.

Here's a client's FB page I did. I was able to embed the EventBrite code to sell tickets DIRECTLY inside of his FB page.
