Frequently asked questions:

How do I get set up with CultureCast?

Complete this form. We’ll send you Tessitura configuration information, a short agreement to sign, and a form to set up a Stripe account to take payment. Once the paperwork is complete, you should be up-and-running in a matter of hours.

I don’t use Tessitura, can I use CultureCast?

Not yet, but we’re working on other ticketing platform support, and potential standalone configurations.

Can I use my existing payment provider, rather than Stripe?

Right now, CultureCast only supports Stripe for payment processing. This is so that we can quickly and easily support as many clients as possible, and support mobile payments such as ApplePay. We are looking into alternative options for this, including support for clients’ existing payment processors.
