Overview
Pricing

Givebutter is free thanks to optional donor tips.

The fee charged by our secure payment processors is 2.9% + 30¢ except ACH, which offers a reduced rate of 1.9% + 30¢ per transaction. Donors can choose to cover these fees (which 95% do!).

If you'd prefer to disable tips, a platform fee applies instead: 

→ 1% for Donation Forms
→ 3% for Fundraising Pages
→ 5% for Events & Auctions

6% (3.5% platform fee + 2.5% processing fee) + .79 / transaction

Eventbrite's Professional Pricing tier does give users the option to pass fees onto attendees, but this can often leave people angry when faced with a large processing fee of 6% + $1.59. Unfortunately, taking on this large fee yourself isn't very ideal either. Eventbrite does offer a lower fee tier (Essentials), but the features are very limited (only one ticket type) and is priced about the same as Givebutter's full-featured offering.
