WHAT IT COSTS

Producer (Club/Organization) Incurred Fees

  • For events that charge for admittance
    • $.50 per sold ticket
    • $.05 per returned/unused hard ticket, i.e. unsold tickets printed for tabling.
    • 3% of all credit card fees (based on gross receipts of all credit card sales)
  • For free, but ticketed events
    • $.10 per distributed ticket
    • $.05 per returned/unused hard ticket, i.e. unused tickets printed for tabling.
  • For events that charge a fee for non-Brandeis but are free to Brandeis student, we combine the above fee structures.
  • Examples of maximum ticket fees (if sold out):
Venue Set-Up Style Capacity

Free Event
(Billed to charge line)

Paid Tickets
(Deducted from ticket income)
Levin Ballroom Auditorium Style 450 $45

$225 + 3% credit cards

Levin Ballroom Empty (Dance) 700 $70

$350 + 3% credit cards

Sherman Auditorium Style 400 $40

$200 + 3% credit cards

Sherman Empty (Dance) 500 $50

$250+3% credit cards

The average attendance for dance parties during 2013-14 was 200 people. So, if the tickets were free, the ticketing fee totaled $20, which was billed to the club's account after the event. If there was a charge for admittance, the ticketing fee totaled $100, plus 3% of credit cards (often as low as $2-$5).

Customer Incurred Fees

The customer incurs a $2 per ticket handling fee for all Internet and telephone orders. This fee is applied in addition to the ticket price.  For example, one ticket at $5, plus $2 handling fee, equals a total of $7 for the customer. There is no fee for in-person sales.


GETTING YOUR MONEY AND PAYING FOR BRANDEIS TICKET’S SERVICES

In order for clubs to receive their ticket income or pay for ticketing fees (for free, but ticketed events), they must be recognized clubs and have a club account (a.k.a, university charge line).  All ticket sales income is collected at point of sale and held by Brandeis Tickets.  After the event(s) close and all sales are complete, Brandeis Tickets will run a settlement report and statement of account.  Ticket fees are deducted from the gross receipts, and all net adjusted receipts will be remitted to the club or organization via University accounting to the club's charge line.
