Client Service Agreement
(1) Description of the Services
"entertainment.ie" is the operator of an events and listings website under the domain name www.entertainment.ie.
"Entertainment.ie tickets" is a trading name of entertainment.ie and will provide an integrated sales and promotional service to the Client in order to distribute tickets to the Client's registered Events. Entertainment.ie tickets will be acting solely as a ticket agent for the Client. Entertainment.ie tickets will sell tickets for the Client's Event, close Event sales at the agreed time and ensure the Client has access to their customer information for use at a COBO (Care of Box Office) collection. The Client has 24 hour access to ticket sales by logging into a browser based, live sales interface, provided by entertainment.ie tickets specific to Client.
(2) Event Set Up
(i) Once the "New Client Sign Up Form" has been completed, entertainment.ie will provide the Client with their promoter login, which will allow for direct access to live sales reporting.
(ii) Once this log in is live, entertainment.ie will make live for public sale any show which has been submitted via the "Event Listing Form" within two business days. It is the responsibility of the Client to correctly submit all information on the Event including but not limited to marketing copy, allocation sizes and ticket prices.
(iii) Entertainment.ie will work to highlight Event to the public for the duration of the on sale period via various on and offline resources available to us.
(iv) If the Event venue has allocated seating, the Client must hold seats together so that, until entertainment.ie can offer allocated seating, at least the seats are being held together.
(v) Once a day, either entertainment.ie or the Client can email to request an increase or return of allocations if the seats are needed by another party. This must always be done in writing, for records' sake. The Client must allow for entertainment.ie to sell their allocation by not revoking the seats further than 48 hours in advance.
(3) Event Operations
(i) The Event will go off sale at the agreed upon time as listed on the "Event Booking Form".
(ii) Unless otherwise specified (in cases of arrangements with a certain high volume of sales), all tickets will be transactional exchanges, rather than printed tickets. Customer data will be available to the Client at all times via their log in. It is up to the Client to add the buyers' details to their own box office system for the printing of tickets and financial reporting in-house if required. Where the ticketing has been agreed, Entertainment.ie will deliver the tickets to the venue at least 2 hours before the doors open. Posting of tickets can likewise be arranged at a fee, but is not a part of the standard service.
(4) Event Settlement and Payments
(i) Buyer payments are processed directly by Entertainment.ie tickets
(ii) Accounts are settled following the event only. Within two days after an Event (or the last Event in a run of Events), a balancing statement will be sent to the Client based on VAT rates submitted by the Client and or available for automatic download. The statement will reflect gross ticket sales minus booking fees and VAT where applicable.
(iii) The Client should then submit an invoice to Entertainment.ie tickets for the amount due to them according to the following: A Client who is VAT registered should submit a VAT invoice for the gross ticket sales (including VAT). A Client who is not VAT registered should submit an invoice for the net ticket sales (excluding VAT). All invoices should exclude booking/service charges and ticket delivery fees as these are between the Buyer and entertainment.ie tickets and Buyer directly.
(iv) Accounts are settled on the Tuesday following receipt of an invoice from the Event organiser. Funds will be transferred electronically, via the bank details accurately provided in the "Event Listing Form" and Entertainment.ie will confirm payment by email.
(v) Entertainment.ie tickets reserves the right to withhold funds at any time as it determines to be necessary for the processing and settlement of all returns, disputed charges, customer complaints, allegations of fraud and other discrepancies. All sales, fees, charges, and funds are payable in Euro (). Only one payment will be issued per Event.
(vi) Any credit card charge backs initiated by the buyer for any reason with respect to an Event shall be charged back to Client of the Event.
If an Event is cancelled, buyers who purchased their tickets through entertainment.ie tickets will receive a refund to the card they used within a reasonable time frame. In case an Event is rescheduled and the buyer is unable to attend the rescheduled date, a refund can be processed by entertainment.ie tickets. In the event of a cancellation or reschedule, the Client is responsible for any transactional fees incurred by entertainment.ie on their behalf. In the event of a cancellation, where no suitable alternative date is provided to the Buyer, entertainment.ie tickets shall deduct associated credit card, bank, merchant and booking fees from the Client's outstanding balance (in case the Event has not been settled), whether for that particular Event or for any other Event that the Client lists through entertainment.ie tickets or send an invoice to such Client for such costs if no balance exists.
(6) Service Fees
Entertainment.ie tickets charges a per ticket booking fee to the Buyer based on the face value of the ticket. For more information please refer to our Pricing Table. entertainment.ie tickets can, instead pass these charges to the Client, if the Client prefer to keep the end price low for the Buyer.
