Choosing Your Payment Set up

As you think about setting up your event, you also need to think about how you will collect the money from your event. Ticketbud offers two flexible payment options, which you can easily access and set through our Payment Setup page.

When making the final edits to your event, you can access the Payment Setup page through the link of the same name at the bottom of your Event Checklist.

On the Payment Setup page, you will first be asked to select a Payment Processor. You can choose between Ticketbud’s credit card processor or third-party processors Stripe, PayPal and Authorize.net. The payment processor you choose will determine how you will collect and manage the money from your event.



If you choose Stripe, PayPal or Authorize.net:

  • You will need to setup an account on that site and your money will be sent from Ticketbud to that particular processor.
  • All transaction related activities such as refunds and invoices, will also need be handled outside of Ticketbud through the account of the third-party processor you selected.


If you choose Ticketbud’s internal credit card processor:

  • We will handle all of your payment processing, ensuring a seamless checkout experience for you and your attendees.
  • You will also be able to manage your money right from your Ticketbud account.
  • This means no outside setup, no third-party management, no hassle.
Simply select whether you want to receive your money via direct deposit or from Ticketbud once the event ends and you’re all set. While information such as mobile number, date of birth and social security number are not required, this info will help expedite the approval process. We absolutely DO NOT store this information.

The processor you choose will also determine how you will pay Ticketbud. If you select a third-party option like Stripe, PayPal or Authorize.net, you will be charged a flat $99 when you are ready to activate your event page. If you select Ticketbud’s credit card processing, your attendees will pay a small processing fee when they purchase their tickets, allowing you, the organizer, to pay absolutely nothing.

So let’s recap, with Ticketbud’s credit card processing, your attendees will pay the price of the ticket plus a small fee. Ticketbud will retain this per-ticket fee as payment for our services and you will collect the full price of the ticket without ever paying a dime. With Stripe, PayPal or Authorize.net, you will pay us an up front $99 for our services, allowing your attendees to pay only the price of the ticket without any fees from Ticketbud.

We realize events come in all shapes and sizes and no one pricing can fit them all. Our dual pricing options accommodates this and allows you to choose the pricing that works best for you.
