20 Alternatives to Eventbrite for Online Event Registration

Eventbrite is one of the biggest names in online event registration. It is very popular (especially in my experience with church and not-for-profit events) and it has a lot going for it.

However, there are a number of excellent alternatives to Eventbrite that are well worth a look when you're planning your next event.

Here are 20 online registration providers worth a look. If you can recommend another provider that isn't included in this list, please share it in the comments below.

    Hey Steve, we used O-Tix for one of our events this year. The customer support was excellent, I was able to call and speak to real people who could solve problems for me. I appreciated that. However, their software is new and not fully tested. They were constantly bringing out new features but it was buggy and sometimes frustrating as a result. I felt the look and feel for the customer was better and easier to manage than trybooking but we still had a number of problems with people unable to buy tickets without calling me to get help. I’m looking forward to your price comparison! Thanks for your work on this, Hannah

    I hadn’t heard of O-Tix Hannah, thanks for sharing. I took a look today, and it looked like it had some great features, but it was a little hard to explore and see pricing.

    I’ve found some great options in my research which I’m looking forward to sharing soon!

    Australian Christian Events (http://christianevents.net.au) launched in January 2016 also offers free event listing, and basic ticket sales as part of that listing right now.

    In February they will be launching a new FREE extensive (white-label) on-line ticketing system (Acetix) with a mature development history all the way back to Hillsong Conference 2000+ (under Dawes International) with all proceeds going back into a number of B2B (or Ministry to ministry) on-line services for Christian ministry in Australia as part of the http://faith.network/ vision.

    The new system is like Outix in it’s simplicity, but like Ticketek in it’s power if you need it for conferences and group management. The scanning mobile app is super fast and works online, via a mini intranet or offline and comes with features you’d expect with expensive systems like eTouches, including API access and integration with other cloud services.

    Acetix will also come with integration with Australian and Asian banks allowing for ministries with arms throughout asia to transact in their local currency.

    Thanks for sharing. I had a look at your website, but couldn’t see any information about the ticketing platform (or contact details).

    Steven, thanks for including us in your list – really appreciate it! I just thought I’d mention that the name of our site is “Picatic”. It’s mistaken for Piratic more than you might think 😉

    Thought I’d also share this comparison we put together between Picatic vs. Eventbrite for anyone who might be interested – http://promo.picatic.com/picatic-alternative-to-eventbrite/.

    Thanks again, Steve!

    Hi Steve,

    This is a super handy list and thank you for including the company I work for, TryBooking! We have recently undergone a complete redesign of our site and it’s now very easy on the eye 🙂

    For anyone who’s interested we’ve also introduced a TryBooking vs. Eventbrite fee calculator where you can enter the price of your ticket and get an estimation of how much you’ll save with us: https://www.trybooking.com/compare-eventbrite-ticket-pricing/

    Thanks again Steve,

    Christina

    Hi Steven,

    This is such a great resource! I am with the Corsizio team, and would love to share about our platform being a great alternative for such needs as well. We are ultra dedicated to an outstanding user experience for both the event creators and their attendees, with our clean, easy-to-use and modern approach, and offer leading value when it comes to pricing. (All free and offline registrations are free, and any payments processed only incur a flat $1 service fee.)

    We welcome your feedback and thank you for allowing us to share about Corsizio with your audience 🙂

    Hi Steven! Thanks for taking the time to highlight other great online event registration websites.
    I personally work for Paydro (https://paydro.com/eng), you might want to check us out! We work very hard to create the best online ticket service, that makes it easy and fun to start, build and grow events. Your insights would be much appreciated. Cheers!

    Hi Steven, great post. It’s high quality and goes through a lot of great alternatives. I think you definitely hit a lot of the big ones. Another great Eventbrite alternative I’d also like to suggest is Ticketbud. You can read about why here: http://blog.ticketbud.com/7-reasons-why-ticketbud-is-the-best-eventbrite-alternative/

    I’d appreciate if you would check us out – we offer features they can’t, like payout before the event ends. We also provide a user friendly interface that’s been tried and tested.

    Thanks and have a great Monday.

    Cheers,
    Sean

    OpenSports is great for recreational sports events. It has great customer service, easy payout and it helps you retain people very well.

    Hey Steven,

    Phew, quite a list!

    If you ever do another one of these, I’d love to humbly pitch Billetto for consideration. We offer most features of Eventbrite’s “Professional” plan at a cheaper per-ticket fee.

    You can check us out for more info here: https://billetto.co.uk/l/eventbrite-alternative

    You could also add GoRegister.com.au to your list (Think the combination of HaloTickets, Australian Christian Events and GoRegister – three Australian Christian ticketing companies that have been running for up to 10 years). This has been operating for over 9 years, with clients from Scripture Union, The Uniting Church, CYC, and many more.

    GoRegister is more than a registration system, it also allows for volunteer and staff registration and workflows (aka Working with children), as well as accommodation management and fund-raising features, it’s an event platform, rather than a registration system like many above.

    Our pricing is extremely competitive and not padded to compensate for lower ticket rates, and we super lowest credit card and payment rates, and we’re about to go sub 1% on credit cards. Our product has no monthly fees or fees for free events, and we offer a further 25% discount for those on the Australian Charities register.
