How much does it cost to use our online ticket system?

HoustonIndian.net can help you sell tickets if you have a paypal account using our ticket platform (reserved seating/standard seating), signing up with paypal is free: (https://www.paypal.com/signup/account). Paypal accept all major credit cards Amex, Visa, Discover and Mastercard.

For every ticket you sell using your own Paypal account, Paypal automatically deducts processing fee of 2.9% plus .30 cents per transaction from the actual ticket price. But if you are a Non-profit, PayPal offers discounted transaction rates for 501(c)(3) for most products, and consistently low rates for all other nonprofits 2.2 % plus .30 cents per transaction. (https://www.paypal.com/webapps/mpp/donations) Paypal transaction fee is lowest compared to other ticket carriers. You can also choose the user to pay the transaction fee and add to the ticket price.
