Product Details

What is ThunderTix?

Event ticketing software for the performing arts and live performances with both reserved seating and general admission. Supports a variety of season subscriptions at the same venue (or across multiple venues) including the full season, mini-season, or flex passes with voucher codes. Subscribers can be renewed for the next season in their same seats using an automated renewal process.

The software is also a fundraising platform used to receive donations and track donors, with an included CRM and complete patron database. Patrons, orders, and donations can be imported from previous systems so data is already transferred and loaded, when starting with ThunderTix.

Reserved seating includes seat exchanges, blocking, advanced reservations, initial deposits, and group sales. Merchandise and concessions can be sold from one integrated box office portal with connected payment terminals for rapid credit card processing on-site.

Coupons and promo codes can be used to incentivize event sales, or automated group discounts for parties of more than X (the user chooses the terms). Marketing efforts are tracked with custom surveys, including post-event surveys the morning after a performance to gauge customer satisfaction.

Gift cards are fully integrated with all redemption and balance tracking towards future tickets or merchandise. Customer loyalty is supported through rewards based on purchasing thresholds.

Users receive all proceeds nightly with direct deposit from a payment gateway -- not after the event takes place. ThunderTix can be tried with a 14-day free trial that can be extended indefinitely while preparing for an upcoming season.

ThunderTix is our sole ticketing system. They also handle concession sales at the box office, donation, and merchandise sales. They have been 100% reliable, remarkably responsive, and open to feature suggestions. Converting from our old system took only a few days. We started on a Tuesday were up and running in time for that weekend's event. It has been flawless from that point on for years. <br><br>I actively promote them as a product to other companies. When considering them, I discussed their code maturity, history and development practices with various people in their company as those are critical to long tern reliability and success. Obviously they passed with flying colors. We needed a solid solution on a rushed emergency timeline and I was prepared for an order of magnitude more effort. It was trivial and has been all along. <br><br>I know I sound like the mom of someone that works there, but I'm just a small business that needs ticketing to be taken care of. They are just good. Really good.
  • Uptime. Never experienced a service outage in over 7 years of use.
  • Customer support. Rarely needed but immediate and effective
  • Feature request and intelligent product expansion
  • Excellent integration with other mailing list services although they began offering some support for mailing lists themselves.
  • I honestly am not a power user for our organization, but hear no complaints. The times I have to use it, I quickly find and remember how things work. I have no material criticisms.
The capability to check in customers using a simple phone app allows offloading a lot of box office tasks to unskilled ushers and volunteers. It's just circumspect for all our ticketing needs.

We use ThunderTix to host ticket sales for events in our performing arts theatre at our clubhouse. It manages box office and online sales for us, as well as the entry process for each event. Their support team is incredibly helpful and responsive whenever we have an issue that needs immediate attention. This platform reduces our stress for inperson and online sales for our shows by filtering all sales through our payment gateway where we can track sales through either thundertix or our payment gateway.
  • Customer Support
  • Box Office Sales
  • Online Sales
  • Sales Reports
  • Some of their fees are unreasonable
  • Public display website is a bit sparse
  • user interface
It is the cheapest and easiest to use platform, especially when compared to Ticket Spice and AudienceView. Ticket Spice is full of microtransactions and AudienceView's user interface is decades old and completely inefficient. Thundertix is easy to use and the prices are reasonable for ticket sales and supplemental packages for your account.

My company holds a raffle every year and we use ThunderTix to sell the raffle tickets online. The main business problem this product addresses is a customized page for us to sell our tickets online. We don't have to deal with the processing of anything it's all done through the ThunderTix system which saved us a lot of development time. It is a great product that fits our needs perfectly.
  • Good User Interface
  • Customer Service
  • Customization/Features
  • The only problem I've had with ThunderTix is there are so many features/customizations sometimes you have to do some searching to find the setting you're looking for, but the customer service has been excellent with pointing me in the right direction.
I've only used ThunderTix for selling raffle tickets online for my employer so I can't speak for other scenarios but for our particular needs it works perfectly. It allows us to have a customizable sales page that includes our branding and it's easy for our users to understand as in the entire year we've been using it I've never had a customer have any issues with it.

We use ThunderTix for our public event ticket sales. It provides us the ability to do online pre-event sales at a reasonable price. It is full-featured and allows multiple options for scanning tickets and getting our patrons in the door efficiently. I highly recommend ThunderTix for general admission events (that is all we do). Additionally, their customer service is outstanding. And, that is very meaningful to us in the current world environment.
  • Options for efficient ticket verification
  • Event page and ticket customization
  • Customer support
  • nothing comes to mind
  • still nothing comes to mind
  • nope, nothing comes to mind
General admission events where you need to move people through the door efficiently

I run a reputable live concert venue just outside of Houston, Texas. We present more than 300 ticketed concerts per year. We use ThunderTix for ticket sales for all of our concerts. Tickets are purchased online through ThunderTix. We use back-office features for reporting, seating, customer data management, etc.
  • Site is easy to use for both our customers and for us using in the back office
  • Platforms are aesthetically pleasing and easy to integrate
  • Thundertix rarely, or even never has any glitches. We have significant data relying upon Thundertix, and I am more than satisfied.
  • The management and/or ownership at Thundertix is fantastic to work with. They truly care. They have even added specific features that are available to all clients based on some of the needs that we have.
  • For the money, I honestly don't have a single critique. Some of the larger companies offer a few more features, but we believe that most of those bells and whistles are not worth a significant increase in price.
  • Our venue is a 160 seat venue. Thundertix is ideal for this. I do not know how Thundertix would translate to a 15,000 venue. It is not what we deal with. We are involved in some higher ticket events, but those are all General Admission so I do not have to deal with 15,000 reserved seats.
If a company is happy with its own website and happy with its own means of promotion, ThunderTix is absolutely perfect. That is where we are. I get a dozen calls per year from companies begging for our business. No interest. I turned down a huge cash bonus to switch a couple of years ago. It wasn't worth it.

Main Street Crossing is an intimate music venue. We use Thundertix to manage all of our ticket sales. We average 5 shows a week and sell about 120-150 tickets. We use Thundertix for all of our ticket sales and management.
  • Thundertix is a WONDERFUL price that allows us to sell more tickets and increase our profits. The pricing of Thundertix is lower cost than anything else in the market.
  • Thundertix is always innovating and adding to features relevant to the current market.
  • Thundertix has great customer service, especially if you are willing to pay the premium price for over the phone customer support.
  • We pay a premium for the over the phone customer service. Thundertix is at such a good price point it’s worth it to pay the extra for this service. Their online customer service s great, but it can be difficult to get your point across sometimes without talking to someone on the phone.
  • Thundertix does not currently have any text message features in place. I hope to see that in the future.
  • Thundertix has many features and it can be difficult to utilize all of the features because there are just so many and they aren’t all intuitive.
Thundertix is a wonderful program for tickets and events. The low cost makes it affordable and practical. Allowing the venue to retain profits.

We have been with ThunderTix for over a decade and we wouldn't think of even considering going anywhere else. From the beginning ThunderTix always gave us the best return on investment. The system is so easy to use from both the managing side as well as from the consumer side. Their customer service is "top notch"! In the unlikely event you encounter issues with the system, they are extremely quick to respond to emails and calls. Our theatre would highly recommend their service to anyone.
  • Excellent customer service.
  • Listens and responds to customer suggestions and implements changes based on user community suggestions.
  • One of the easiest systems to use. We tried several and this was the easiest we found by far.
We are a community theatre and ThunderTix works great for us. We would believe any type of organization that plans and runs events would find it as beneficial as we do.
