Picatic Reviews

Great experience using Picatic - Low fees lots of features

about Picatic Nov 2015

Our company uses Picatic for an annual rally/race event. The service easily fulfils our needs for selling tickets and tracking attendees. Through Picatic, we use the Mailchimp integration for staying in touch with ticket buyers and were even able to set-up Slack notifications for new sign-ups. We ended up needing support for one ticket buyer, Picatic's response time was quick and they were able to solve the user's issue. In the end fees for the service were low, so it helped keep expenses down and didn't drive up ticket prices. I would recommend Picatic to other users looking for a ticket sales platform.

Lacks some basic features

Negative Review by dandv
about Picatic and sched Sep 2015

Picatic looks nice but it lacks some basic features:

  • Can't add other users to the account. This is a bit of a problem for paid events because someone needs to add sensitive financial details (SSN or the company's tax information), and the same person needs to either deal with all the other aspects of the event (e.g. design), or share the login details with other people. Which means they can access other events that the person created. Of course, you can create single-use accounts to get around this.

  • There's no support for event schedules. You basically have to (ab)use the event description. By comparison. sched.org supports detailed conference schedules, and attendees can mark the talks/tracks they're interested in.

  • There's no event mobile app among the features.

I'd recommend Picatic only for simple events.
