TicketLeap.com is one of the older small venue ticket enabling services out there right now, having started in 2003.Â¬â€ The site offers small companies, venues, and events the chance to more affordably offer their tickets online.Â¬â€ Fees are charged to the buyers, padded onto the ticket itself.
In July of last year, TicketLeap secured $2 million in funding to continue operations and ad a new twist to their service.
The new addition was Anywhere, which the Philadelphia-based app provider now offers for mobile users.Â¬â€ Now you can secure your tickets anytime, anywhere, on the go with your smart phone.Â¬â€ Even the event handlers or organizers can use their mobiles to set up their tickets for sale through TicketLeap.
TicketLeap Anywhere is cloud-based and allows for everything from selling tickets to scanning them when people arrive for the event.Â¬â€ They allow for booked seats, general admission, and many customization options.Â¬â€ Since most small venues or one-off organizers won’t have equipment like barcode scanners on hand, those can be rented from TicketLeap as well.
Basically, the site and app aim to be an all-in-one ticket sales and collection venue.
This is a great enabling solution and definitely has a good place on the market.Â¬â€ Fees are based on number of total tickets to be sold for the event, whether or not the event repeats (say, 3-night gigs versus a single), etc.Â¬â€ They are based on percentage of the ticket total and usually come to around $3-$5 per ticket for standard concert-style events.
TicketLeap was created by Chris Stanchak, it’s current CEO, and is based in Philadelphia, PA.
