Tixys is an online application which allows ticket vendors to sell tickets and other services to their customers. Each vendor has their own ticket shop and has full control over their offerings.
Tixys has no setup or regular fees. We only charge an application fee of three percent per ticket, plus payment fees. Payment fees depend on your country and the selected payment method. Details can be found on the website of our payments partner, Stripe.
