Our Subscription-Based Business Model

And here’s the catch: we don’t take a percentage of your ticket revenues like most ticketing systems. We don’t even take a per ticket fee. We offer a fair, flat, reasonable yearly subscription fee. Quite simply, we think we should be fairly compensated for our work, not gouge a percentage of someone else’s. At the end of the day we’re out to make a living, not a killing.

WordPress Integration

Tessera offers virtually unlimited flexibility in how you present your shows, events, and merch through a seamless API integration with your website — or with WordPress specifically. You’re not limited to a handful of lame web page templates that never seem to suit how you want to display your show/event information. Our savvy, experienced developers can realize your site’s design right down to the smallest detail. Already have a WordPress site? We can integrate with your existing site. Not a WordPress user? Tessera includes an open API, which enables us to build a native venue-specific smartphone app, or integrate our ticketing into your existing app.

Manage Shows 

Tessera Integrates with WordPress (and other CRMs) to synchronize show fields with ticket system fields. A key benefit of this architecture is you can manage all your website content, including show information, merch, food, other pages in WordPress. Show pages can be styled in any fashion you like. Other ticket systems force you to use a limited number of templates, or insert a widget on a page.

  • Unlimited Brand and Presentation Flexibility
