1 No fees on your first £500 of sales.

Pay zero fees on your first £500 of tickets sold.

We mean nothing, no ticket or payment fees for you or your customers. Sell £500 and receive £500 ✨.

We know you’ll love MatterPay and we’ll back this, try us today for free, you simply won’t find this elsewhere.

2 We’re up to 50% cheaper than Eventbrite.

After your free £500 sales, we’re still cheaper with a much lower percentage of the ticket cost, 5% rather than 6.95%, we also take a lower fixed price per ticket, 50p vs 59p.

If you’re not VAT registered then you pay NO VAT with us, costing 40% less than Eventbrite!

3 Get paid directly – your money is yours.

Eventbrite typically holds your money until AFTER your event is finished. This can be a nightmare for cashflow. We’ll instantly transfer your payments into your Stripe account, and you’ll receive these in your bank account about 3 days later.

4 Your brand, not ours.

We’ll put your brand front and centre every step of the way, and maintain a professional and consistent brand presence, without plastering our brand over your event pages. Customers only see our brand where necessary. All this for no extra cost, like most other ticketing providers.

Event pages, email confirmations, tickets, payment pages all carry your brand.

5 Your data is yours, we don’t own any of it.

We don’t own your data or your customers’ data. It’s always yours. We don’t email customers for other events not run by you as Eventbrite does.

Our team genuinely cares about data privacy and GDPR and ensure that we’re fully compliant every step of the way.

6 We’re committed to supporting you.

We aim to get back to you in minutes, no matter how big or small your event. You can reach us via phone, email or even get in touch with our founder and technical team with instant Live Chat!

7 Our customers love us.

Take a look at our customer case studies. You’ll see why our customers rave about our service. Give us a call if you want to speak to any of our customers and get a first-hand view of their experience.

8 We’re independent, based in the UK.

Born in Bristol, we’ve been making events smoother and more sustainable for 7 years. You can expect excellent support from our UK team and features that grow with you.

We answer to no one but our customers!

9 We care about our planet, and take real action.

We’re totally carbon neutral (since we launched). Plus, we run a Trees for Tickets scheme. That means that every time you sell a ticket with MatterPay we contribute to growing trees around the world. You can see your direct contribution from our control panel.

We’ll even plant a tree for you when you signup.

We want you to succeed, that’s our number one goal.

  • Give your customers the most beautiful, easy-to-use experience.
  • Keep your money, your data and all with lower fees.
  • Protect the planet with carbon neutrality and tree planting.
  • Get rapid support from the team that built the platform.
Our goal is to enable you to make your events the best they possibly can be, without hitch or frustration. It’s as simple as that.

If you’re unsure about anything then book a meeting with us, we’ll check that there is nothing less than a great fit for you. If anything isn’t right we’ll tell you and give you advice, even if that means going elsewhere.
