Berlin based batido is another contestant in the event marketing and ticket selling space.
The service is pretty straigtforward and really easy to use. It took me about 5 minutes to sign up and get a full-fledged ticket shop up and rolling. You sign up, create an event, create a homepage for the event by adding basically any information you want (you also can integrate photos, videos or maps), add any number of options for tickets or number of seats and start promoting your event, sell tickets and keep track of the participants.
The service is free, batido only keeps 2.5% of the price of a ticket with a minimum of 0.25 Euro per ticket.
batido supports a variety of payment options for the tickets – credit card, Paypal, Giropay, payment in cash at the door, etc. Tickets are sent via e-mail and users print them out themselves. Unlike Amiando, a similar service we have covered previously, batido does not print and ship paper based tickets.
Bottom line: selling tickets has never been easier.
