* For payments made via credit card.

Why Two Fee Components?

We aim to keep our fees as low as possible and to cover our costs in a fair and equitable manner. The costs we incur vary for the different payment methods, so we think it's only fair that we isolate and vary this fee component accordingly.

What's the Host Fee?

The Host Fee is our fee for providing the TicketHost service. It is $0.60 per ticket sold plus 1.0% of the ticket price.

What's the Booking Fee?

The Booking Fee covers the bank fees and other costs that TicketHost incurs in providing our online booking and payment system. The Booking Fee varies depending on the method of payment:

Payment Method Booking Fee
Credit Card 0.8% per order
EFT No Charge
PayPal 1 No Charge by TicketHost, a fee is levied by PayPal
Direct Payment 2 No Charge

1. TicketHost does not charge a Booking Fee for processing payments via PayPal, however you will be charged a fee directly by PayPal (PayPal Fee Schedule). You will need a PayPal account to accept payments via PayPal.

2. TicketHost does not charge a Booking Fee for payments made directly to the Event Organiser. eg. Cash, Cheque, etc. Ticket orders that employ direct payment must be processed by an authorised Event Organiser, contact TicketHost for more information.

Who Pays the Fees?

The Booking Fee is paid by the Event Organiser but you are free to choose who pays the Host Fee. During event setup, simply assign the Host Fee to be paid by either the Ticket Buyer (added to the order total) or the Event Organiser (deducted from your ticket revenue).

Free Events

If admission is free to your event, then there is absolutely no charge to use TicketHost.


What's the Bottom Line?

  • The fees charged by TicketHost are amongst the lowest in Australia.
  • Many of our competitors charge more than twice as much, to sell exactly the same number of tickets!
  • Put simply, when you opt to pass the host fee on to the ticket buyer, your organisation will pay a maximum fee of just 0.8%.

That's only $0.80 per $100.00 of revenue!
