Get Paid Upfront for Your Event

We offer PayPal and Custom Credit Card Processor integrations so you can get funds right away as ticket sales are generated. When you use one of these processing options, Brown Paper Tickets gives you a 2.5% service fee rebate to help offset your processing fees. 

If your event has a Donation sales type one of these options will be needed to process payments.
