What are the total costs of selling tickets for a nonprofit event?

The following fee breakdown is on a $10 ticket.

Your Merchant Fees

While this is something we do not control, it is important to remember when calculating all costs, your merchant bank will charge you for accepting credit card payments. Currently we support two merchants: Stripe and PayPal. They charge 30 cents + 2.9% per transaction and it is taken out of your transaction by them directly.

Ticketstripe Nonprofit Service Fees

Ticketstripe fees for nonprofits are 1.50 %  + $ 0.50 per ticket sold.

Ticket Costs When Your Merchant is Stripe (Recommended)

When you use Ticketstripe with a Stripe merchant account you have the option to pass on ALL fees to your customer (Ticketstripe service + Stripe merchant fees). Most of our organizers choose this option.

If you choose to pass on ALL fees for a $10 ticket, your customer will pay: $11.24. Of that amount: $0.65 cents will go to Ticketstripe, $0.59 cents will go to Stripe and you will receive $10.

Ticket Costs When Your Merchant is PayPal

You have the option to pass Ticketstripe’s service fee on to your ticket buyers or pay the fee yourself.

If you choose to pass on Ticketstripe service fee for a $10 ticket, your buyers would pay $10.65 per ticket and you will receive $10.65 per ticket. $0.65 will be billed by Ticketstripe and $0.59 cents will be deducted by PayPal.
