If you are hosting a paid event, processing fees apply. We withhold those fees from the sales of your Tickets. Design Portland does not assess any additional fees on the sale of organizers’ Tickets. There are no fees associated with free Tickets.

Because we allow guests to check out with multiple Tickets, the flat $0.30 “successful charge” fee is sometimes divided among multiple organizers. Continue reading for more information on how fees are calculated and credits are issued.
Let’s looks at a couple of examples for how ticket sales may manifest in your platform balance: Suppose you are hosting two Festival Events with paid Tickets: Event A has one Ticket Type for $5 and Event B has one Ticket Type for $10.

For the second example, we’ll increase the complexity a bit:
As a matter of privacy, we don’t allow organizers to see what else was part of an order that included one their Tickets—the specifics end up being irrelevant to your payouts!
In most cases, no. Fees are assessed as charges are made, and unless you need an Instant Payout, you do not pay additional fees once you receive funds from Design Portland.
