Believe.in adds events and ticketing function

Believe.in adds events and ticketing function

Online fundraising platform Believe.in has introduced an and ticketing service, enabling charities to sell tickets and allow supporters to set up fundraising pages in one branded system without relying on multiple third parties brands such as Eventbrite and JustGiving.

Charities can now create bespoke event pages for each event in their calendar, whether galas, dinners, concerts or marathons, and offer free or paid-for tickets. They will be able to use tiered pricing, specifying how many tickets at each price are available, and even offering sales windows for each price.

As a white label tool, the pages and content can all reflect each charity’s own brand and look and feel.

Integrating peer-to-peer fundraising

In addition, Believe.in are integrating ‘crowd fundraising’ (or peer-to-peer fundraising) with ticketing to enable supporters to register for an event and then fundraise at it, all in one location.

Charities can use the new system to set up a group event, like a marathon. Believe.in say that, as well as making the processes easier for supporters, the combined data should help database managers and event organisers reconcile data more easily, and use the data more effectively.

The service features leaderboards and extensive integration with social channels, which Believe.in say will increase volumes of supporters and ticket-buyers.

Co-founder and CEO of Believe.in, Matthias Metternich, said:

“Our is already showing phenomenal success at converting online audiences into engaged, long-term patrons and we’re proud to imbue this thinking into a powerful new ticketing product that charities have hitherto been without.”

The new ticketing and events function follows the introduction of a new real-time analytics and CRM dashboard. At the same time the company announced the appointment of Alistair Kilpatrick, formerly AKQA’s Design Director.

How much?

The crowd fundraising facility is included in Believe.in’s lowest pricing level, ‘Free’, which levies no monthly fee, and charges 5% only on donations handled.

The ticketed events and crowd fundraising combination are available on all the other pricing levels, from ‘Starter’ at £95 per month plus 4% on donations, through ‘Advanced’ at £245 a month plus 3% on donations, to the Pro and Enterprise bands.
