Also, it is 35.0% in South Asia, and in East Asia-Pacific, it is 70.0%. Furthermore, offering promotions and discounts on purchasing an online ticket would propel the online event ticketing market forward during the projection period. Furthermore, the rising use of online ticketing due to its convenience, ease, and speed of booking and an increase in the development of user-friendly apps for Android and iOS to support hassle-free online ticket purchases is likely to propel the online event ticketing market forward. Since service fees are included in major online event ticketing systems, they are paid platforms or applications. The majority of platforms charge a fee per ticket in addition to a portion of the ticket price. Many entertainment companies have legacy infrastructure that adds extra costs, forcing them to charge hefty fees to stay in business. In addition to ticketing fees, credit card processing fees must be paid if credit cards are utilized.

Moreover, most ticketing systems charge the ticket buyer credit card processing and ticket convenience costs. Approximately 85% of event organizers pass these costs on to the attendees. Currently, most ticket purchasers are asked to pay a service fee in addition to the price of the ticket. In addition, as different ticketing businesses offer varying pricing points, the payment structure and costs are important factors to consider when choosing a ticketing platform. Event planners, for example, offer reasonable ticketing software and even a free trial to ensure that their customers get all they need and more with no strings attached. As a result of the COVID-19 outbreak, most airlines have raised their ticket rates. However, a lack of price regulation and ticket price instability might hinder online event ticketing market expansion.
