Ticketing, fair & simple

Financial Services

Enabling easy online ticketing minus hefty fees, Seattle based Brown Paper Tickets aims to make the sale of tickets fairer for all. A consumer- and vendor-friendly alternative to Ticketmaster, Brown Paper Tickets offers buyers lower ticketing fees (USD 0.99 per ticket plus 2.5 percent of the sale price). A quick, easy and affordable online ticketing system, all ticket sellers or event promoters need do is plug in the event information and direct people to the website for ticket purchases. The service can also take care delivery and refunds. Unlike other ticketing services, Brown Paper allows clients to sell tickets from their own website, too, instead of forcing a concert or theatrical production to be married to one agency. This allows smaller productions to do as much external marketing as they wish, to maximise ticket sales. The concept really allows anyone to become an event producer and ticket distributor – charity sports game, dinner with friends, indie concert, high school theatre, you name it. Perfect for minipreneurs! Since fees are low, more money stays with the artists and organizers, and less is taken from consumers. Brown Paper paves the way for other ticketing companies to reduce ticketing fees and change their ways or perhaps lose the markets they currently dominate.
