So what's this tiered ticketing?
Tiered ticketing applies to adult tickets only for Deer Shed Festival 4. Tier 1 adult tickets are £79 + booking fee.
When this tier runs out we move onto tier 2 adult tickets at £89 + booking fee and finally tier 3 tickets are released at
£99 + booking fee.
Booking fees make my blood boil
We know, we know.
For DSF1 we used PayPal, printed our own tickets, licked our own envelopes and
it was a load of work. Then PayPal moved the goalposts with unworkable payment terms.
For DSF2 we built our own eTicketing system to do away with the stamp lickin'. In order for this to work we needed
a card processing account (merchant account) from a bank. This proved impossible to secure. The festival industry and the
ticketing industry in general is rightly classified a high risk. If you buy tickets for an event on your credit card and
the event goes bust the bank is liable for your refund. Frustrating, especially after building the eTicket system.
So we are forced to use a third party ticketing company, Ticketscript for 2013. They are able to spread risks over
a number of events and are therefore able to secure the merchant accounts. The banks charge 2-3% of the transaction and
the ticketing company take a similar fee.
We try to get as good a deal as we can from ticketing companies for our audience. They reduce our costs by handling
the ticketing, enabling us to keep ticket prices lower. So yes booking fees our an unavoidable part of life and if
we had any other options we'd take them.
