Lower Fees

Say goodbye to complicated fee structures and hello to transparent low pricing

If you choose to use Ludus’s a la carte Marketing, Classes, or Embed Widget, it is an additional $0.05 per premium feature added to your Ludus base fee. Even then, Ludus’s fees are still much lower.

Ludus charges no fees on cash, comp, or $0 tickets. Never worry about post-show deductions again!

We also offer free seating chart creation/revisions and 100% chargeback protection.

Most importantly: no lock-in contracts — our product and customer support stands on its own, so we never have felt the need to lock people in to using Ludus. (If your organization or district requires a ticketing service agreement, we do have those available to be signed, but they are no lock-in agreements).

Modern Box Office

A modern and innovative platform to make life easier

Implement a system that is people-focused and committed to providing users with the best experience.
Ludus was built from the ground up for a director who needed an easier way to manage their ticketing, marketing, and fundraising needs. That means Ludus thinks like a director and box office manager.

With the changing landscape, Ludus has worked diligently to keep up with industry trends so ticket sales, donations, and collections will not stop as technology advances. One example is that we offer our state-of-the-art credit card readers that will comply with the upcoming changes in credit card security in 2024.

We also understand that every patron is different. Whether a guest would like physical tickets mailed to their house or uploaded to their Apple Wallet, we make sure they have the experience they need to ultimately enjoy your organization's offerings.

Ignite momentum with Ludus! Schedule a demo today and witness firsthand how upgrading to Ludus can revolutionize your operations.
