It's 100% FREE to sell tickets

It's 100% free for you and cheap for your ticket buyers!

We never charge you for selling tickets through Brown Paper Tickets. No set-up fees, no sales fees, and no long-term contracts. And ticket buyers pay just $0.99 and 3.5%, regardless of whether they order online, by phone, or through our walk-up locations. Will-call, print-at-home, mobile delivery, or physical tickets? That's included as well!

All credit card processing fees included!

Our pricing includes all credit card processing. Don't be fooled by other ticketing services that make you pay an additional credit card processing fee.

Using your own credit card processor? We pay you!

If you choose to use your own credit card processor (or PayPal, Amazon Payments, or Google Checkout), we give you an additional 2.5% out of our ticket buyer service fee to offset your costs. No other ticketing service on the planet offers this.
