Eventzilla is an online ticketing solution for events from Chennai based startup Thoughthub Solutions. The product is targeted at all types of event organizers ranging from workshops to tour operators to night clubs. The solution is free for signup and setup and comes with the usual set of features.
- Create professional looking event page online
- Promote your events on Facebook, Twitter
- Deliver tickets online with unique barcodes
- Send notifications to attendees
- Manage cancellations
The product is looking to target organizers from across the globe and already has couple of events hosted. The payment option currently available is only credit cards through paypal, which might be a resistance for Indian audience. On the pricing front they are competing strongly with Ayojak (5% +Rs.15) and DoAttend (4.9% +Rs.15) at a fee of 4.75% + Rs.15 in India. Though for international currencies it is cheaper at 1.5% + ~$0.5 with a cap of $5. There’s no charges for free events.
The UX from an attendee PoV is same as Ayojak and DoAttend, though for first time users the Paypal signup still is a friction. The team is looking to add few more payment solutions, integrate CRM platforms like SalesForce, Netsuite etc. and also enabling mobile ticketing in near future.
