Tickets purchased through sales services like Ticketmaster often come with hidden fees, but with the online ticketing platform Tikly, the fees are transparent and it also puts the control of ticket sales back into the hands of musicians, event promoters and venue owners.
With Tikly, which was created by Emma Peterson (a band manager), artists, promoters and venues are able to sell concert and event tickets directly from their Facebook pages. The service is free for sellers to use, but Tikly places a 10 percent fee on customers' ticket prices, with a minimum of $1 and a maximum of $7.50 (anything priced $75 or higher will have a flat fee of $7.50).
According to PSFK, Tikly aims to make the ticketing process even more interactive in the future by streaming music tracks and selling band merchandise.
