To access your booking fee settings and to view all the booking fee options available to you, you'll need to be logged in to your TicketSource account. From your dashboard, highlight Account at the top of the page, and select Booking Fee Settings.
You will set your booking fee structure during the sign-up process, however, you can change the structure at any time. Please note that changes apply to all events – including those that are currently on sale.
Booking fees are non-refundable if you, the Event Organiser, process a refund. The booking fee is only refundable if an event is cancelled or significantly changed (e.g. change of date, venue or headline act) and TicketSource will process these ticket refunds.
Event cancellation refunds incur a £1.00 handling fee per transaction.
Inclusive fees mean your booking fees will be included in the total cost of the tickets. So when a customer pays for their tickets they won't be aware of any booking fees, and they are absorbed by you.
Exclusive fees mean your booking fee will be added to the total cost of the tickets. When a customer pays for their tickets they will see a booking fee added to the total cost. This means that all base ticket sales will go directly to you.
Split fees mean that you can choose which percentage booking fee you will pay, and which percentage you will pass on to the customer. You can choose any percentage from a 50/50 split to a 99/1 split. The customer will only see the booking fee you have elected for them to pay.
Flat Rate fees mean that you elect to choose a flat rate booking fee to be paid by your customer. If the booking fee you have chosen is less than the standard booking fee, then any remaining booking fee amount will be taken out of the ticket price paid to you.
You can choose to add a booking fee to in-house bookings to cover your costs and overheads, including your own merchant fees, ticket stock, time and effort etc.
You can choose whether the in-house booking fee is applied per ticket or per transaction and you can select if the booking fee is applied to all bookings irrelevant of payment type, or just to a particular type of booking (e.g. 'card' if you have your own merchant facilities).
To specify your in-house booking fee follow the steps below:
Go to Account and select Booking Fee Settings
Select the In-house bookings tab
Select Apply a booking fee, enter the fee and select for the fee to be charged per ticket or per transaction
Select to apply the booking fee to all payment types or a specific payment type
You can also choose to Enable manual override of booking fee during booking by putting a tick in the box
Press Save Changes
Enabling a manual override of booking fee during booking means that, for In-house bookings, you can manually remove or change a booking fee.
If you would like to turn In-House booking fees off, follow the above steps and select 'No booking fee' and then 'Save Changes'.
