Service Fees (How We Make Money)

At MKtix.com, we are keenly aware of the budget constraints facing nonprofits and community-based organizations. Our unique pricing structure provides a valuable service to patrons who pay a small, clearly identitifed, service fee well below what is typically charged for online tickets. We offer this service with no set-up fees or long-term commitment requirement.

SERVICE FEE - CHARGED TO PURCHASER

Our typical fee structure is as follows:

  • Tickets $10 and under // a $1.50 per ticket fee is charged
  • Tickets between $10 and $24.99 // $2 per ticket charged
  • Tickets between $25 and $49.99 // $3 per ticket charged
  • Tickets between $50 and $74.99 // $4 per ticket charged
  • Tickets between $75 and $99.99 // $5 per ticket charged
  • All inclusive. No other fees!

Compare this to existing national ticketing services which charge updwards of $8 per ticket AND add additional fees per order. We also actively market your events through our MKtix family of websites at no charge.

FEES ARE CLEARLY MARKED

All fees paid by the customer are clearly marked at the times of purchase. We recognize that you maintain an important relationship of trust with your patrons, and we believe in supporting that trust.

Below is a sample of how this is presented to your patrons:

FEES DEDUCTED FROM PAYMENT TO ORGANIZATION

The only fee paid by your organization is the standard credit card fee charged by the banking industry for all credit card purchases. By working with multiple organizations, we are able to provide a lowl group-rate, well below what most organizations would otherwise pay for credit card transactions.

We currently accept the following major credit cards:
