Dabble is working to build the largest in-person skill-sharing community in the world. We don't exist without you.


This platform is designed to specifically support small businesses and solopreneurs through human-centered event ticketing and marketing technology. You won't get an impersonal automated support response. You'll reach a real person. We'll know your name. You won't have to start over each time you reach out. We'll do anything we can to answer your question, solve any issue, and sell out your event!

We realize that people list events and experiences and teach for many different reasons. It’s great marketing. It’s fun. It’s extra income. It builds and shares skills. It’s connecting with people offline in a very online world. By choosing your fee split, it allows you to be a part of Dabble in the way that makes the most sense for you. 

Your decision to pay any additional marketing fee is completely up to you. No pressure, no judgment. Everything additional your offer will go directly to marketing your experience and covering the cost of running Dabble every day. This includes near 24/7 partner support, access to our community of Dabblers, and new feature development.

Our small team has a big belief in our mission to connect people through their interests. With your support, we’ll keep doing what we do best and make Dabble available for decades to come. Join us in building a better Dabble community for all.

We appreciate you sharing your passion!

Jemal Swoboda, Dabble CEO


So, how exactly does Dabble's fee work?
For every event you post, you’ll be asked what percentage of the ticket sales you’ll take, and what you’d like to give to Dabble on top of our set minimums. The base percentage you provide to Dabble will go directly to covering the cost of running Dabble every day. This includes event management assistance, responsive and thoughtful partner support, new feature development, and access to our community of Dabblers.
Why is 30% the suggested Dabble fee?
We spend hundreds of thousands of dollars every year to keep this platform running. We took a long hard look at our costs of doing business and realized that 15% (plus 15% for processing) will allow Dabble to operate sustainably and grow our audience of Dabblers to keep filling up your classes. Keep in mind that marketing fees tied to new events do not factor into our marketing until an event is completed. Also, be sure to use your custom referral link to pay just a 5% fee regardless of your set marketing fee for Dabblers that book from your own efforts.
