Free vs. paid tickets

  • Updated


If you would like your event to be free on Hopin, use free tickets. Free tickets are free for attendees. However, organizers still have to pay for each registration to their events above the free amount included in their plan. This is why it's usually a good idea to get a sponsor to cover your costs.

If you would like to generate revenue from your event, select paid tickets and set the price.

We recommend setting up ticket tiers. For example, you can create 10 Super Early Bird tickets for free, 50 Early Bird tickets for $50, and 100 Regular Admission tickets for $100. This way you reward your attendees for committing early. You can also create promo codes for your tickets. 

Note: The ticket price will display the currency added on the Registration > Details tab of the Event Dashboard, only once you have connected a Stripe account. Each event can only have tickets sold in one currency, however, different events can have different currencies, if needed.

The more value your event provides (i.e. through great speakers, niche content, or the high quality of attendees to network with), the more you can charge. Your pricing per ticket can range from 0.50 to millions to fit your event!

Once your event is published, tickets will automatically be available for sale depending on the date you set the ticket sales to go live. To postpone the availability of your free or paid tickets you could set them as 'sold out', set up a waitlist, and make more tickets available on the day that suits you best.

If you create paid tickets, make sure that you set the currency in your Event Dashboard > Registration > Details.
