A Side-by-Side Comparison

Sell more than just tickets with online forms.

Eventbrite and other event management apps are great for selling tickets to an event, but why stop there? Formstack's online forms help you manage the entire event planning process, while letting you keep more money from every ticket. Come see why Formstack is the better Eventbrite alternative.

Beware of added fees!

A lot of event management sites, like Eventbrite, charge their own transaction fees when you sell tickets. Sometimes, this doesn't even include the fees your payment gateway charges on their end! All of these added fees can result in less profit for your event.

Cost of Event Management Platforms

Formstack charges a low monthly fee for access to its online form builder—with no transaction fees! This makes Formstack cheaper than Eventbrite for single or multiple events. Plus, you can use our tool to build other types of forms for your event—like volunteer signups, surveys, and contracts!

NOTE: All costs above do not include payment integration processing fees, which are dependent on the provider.

Comparing Event Management Solutions

With Formstack, you're able to integrate your registration form with several popular payment gateways, send tickets in confirmation emails, apply a custom theme, and let users name their own prices when buying tickets. Eventbrite only offers some of these features.
