Do you sell tickets to events through your Shopify store? If so, did you know that you can charge a service or booking fee for those tickets using Evey Events? This is a great way to generate some extra revenue, and it’s really easy to set up! In this blog post, we will show you how to add a service or booking fee to your ticket sales. We will also provide some tips on how to manage the fees effectively.
Let’s get started!
Both Evey and Shopify can charge a fee per ticket, depending on the plan you’re subscribed to. As the event organizer, you can choose to pay these fees yourself or to pass them on to your customers as part of the ticket price. Evey has a helpful feature that makes it easy to pass on these fees, or to charge different service fees entirely.
When setting up a ticket type in the Event Settings area, you can enable service fees on the ticket type by checking the box at the bottom of the popup.
Set a fee that makes sense for you and your customers. If you want to pass on the Evey fee, you can set the value based on the plan you have selected ($1, 50c, 25c, or 12c). If you want to pass on your Shopify transaction fees, calculate the value based on the percentage that Shopify takes depending on the plan that you’re on (between 0.5% and 2%).
Now that you have your fee values set up for ticket types, you can go over to the storefront integrations area by following the link here or from the event listing page -> Settings -> Storefront Integrations, and select the Service Fees tab.
Here you can configure how the fee label is formatted and add any custom CSS to match your theme and brand.
That’s it! Your customers will now be charged an additional service fee when purchasing their tickets. If you have any questions, please reach out to us.
