This is a very powerful tool to help you figure out ticket pricing if you are applying fees, discounts and commissions.

This window is broken into four columns:

  • Ticket Pricing Options
  • Tax Rate
  • Calculation Options
  • Sample Price Calculator

Notes about tax rates:
  • The tax rate on ticket fees are set in the promotion
  • The tax rate for the base price and effect of markup and discount are set in the event setup. They are not set here since each performance can have different taxation rates than the service fees.

Used to decrease the base ticket price by a fixed dolar amount OR by a percentage Tax rate setting here is only for sample calculator. Apply the Dollar Discount First. This means that any percentage discount is applied after the dollar discount is applied. For example: 1$ off and then 10% off that calculation is different than $1 off the original price plus 10% off the original price. Displays what the values you have entered do to change the price.
+Markup Used to increase the base ticket price by a fixed dolar amount OR by a percentage Apply the Dollar Markup First. This means that the dollar amount is added to the price and then any percentage amount is added on top. Eg. $10 added to the price, followed by 10% on the total is different than $10 added to the original amount plus 10% of the original price.

Always add the Markup - means add the markup amount even if the price of the ticket starts at zero (comp) or gets discounted to zero. it is away of making a ticket a fixed price and can be used for things like a youth ticket anywhere in the venue or a fixed amount of a tip added at dinner theatre, even to comp tickets.
