Your event is now created and will show up on your dashboard.
Register on the site, by entering your personal information, then create your event. Just fill in the blanks and add your pictures, and event information. Your Event is ready to display
Once you've created your event, then create your tickets. You can create as many different kinds as you like (VIP, General Admission, etc.). Post your ticket, and you're done. It's that easy.
You can sign on and monitor your event sales at any time. After your event is over, request a payout and we'll send your profits directly to your bank account. You just focus on your event!
That’s it. After your event, let us know you want a payout, and we’ll send your net profits directly to you.
Since this is not a profit center for us, the fees you pay cover the transaction cost that the bank charges us per transaction, and a tiny bit towards the cost of keeping the website running. That’s it.
Every other ticketing business has to turn a profit to stay in business, hence the higher fees.
After your event, just sign in and go to your dashboard and click the “Request a Payout” button.
Within 24 hours your money will be on its way to you. Paypal takes a couple of days, Zelle is instant.
Then just keep your account open for your next event.
