How does tix4cause Work?

1. tix4cause has partnered with a national ticket exchange so that millions of tickets from the secondary ticket market are available on its website. If you are interested in these tickets and want to view and/or purchase them, you will be directed off the tix4cause website to our trusted affiliate’s website. Prior to being transferred, you will be asked to register with tix4cause by providing your email and selecting a cause member of your choice to benefit should you decide to purchase. If you do purchase tickets through the tix4cause portal, 7.5% of the ticket purchase price you pay in that transaction will be directed to the cause member you selected. There are no extra costs or fees to buy these secondary tickets through the tix4cause portal so give your purchase power, make a difference and check out tix4cause first before you buy!

2 . Causes, charities and non-profits can sign up as tix4cause members to receive even more benefits. As a member they can receive donations of tickets and certificates and even market and sell tickets to their own events. Membership is FREE and these organizations can receive up to 100% of the proceeds depending on the particular transaction.
Individuals, businesses or corporations can buy tickets on tix4cause.com and they can donate those tickets they can’t use. No sense wasting them and all it takes is registering on tix4cause.com and providing relevant event information such as location, date and time. Then depending on the ticket type, they can upload any electronic tickets or mail paper donations to the tix4cause fulfillment center.

3. Donors choose their favorite member cause to benefit, and, once verified and approved by tix4cause , the donation is offered for sale by the cause on the website.

4. If the donor selects a 501 (c) (3) organization, the donor receives an e-generated tax receipt on behalf of the selected cause for the donation.

5 . When a purchaser selects a tix4cause offering and pays for it on the tix4cause website, the tickets are sent to the buyer either electronically ("e-tickets"), via mobile, or via FedEx for paper donations.

6. When a purchaser selects a ticket exchange ticket, the purchaser is taken to our trusted affiliate and completes the transaction on the affiliate’s website. All affiliate transaction details are subject to the affiliate’s terms, conditions and rules.
