How to sell event tickets?
Posted by: Mini 9
Date: May 23, 2014 01:46PM
I don't do many things that require tickets. So, I'm not up on buying/selling tickets.
Stopped in Saturday to get our car serviced. They had drawing for iPads and such. Put my name in. Was really wanting iPad. But instead I won a pair of tickets to the Indy500. And they did not skimp. $186 face value. So, $400 is not far off from iPad value.

So, how to sell and what to expect?

These particular tickets are sold out from main venue. So, should I expect less or more than face value?

I would need to sell them almost immediately, though. Never done stubhub or similar.

Knowing my luck, I'll just eat them.

With some of the CL stories about crimes, violence, scams, I've steered clear of that.
But yeah, except for idiots like me with unnatural fears of such stuff, even though I am always armed, CL sounds like the low-hanging fruit for this problem. I appreciate your suggestion.

Ok. I've created a CL account and posted my tickets. Called my insurance to make sure it's up to date, hired a sniper as a backup. smiling smiley

StubHub is owned and backed by eBay. I've bought from them a few times and have yet to get stuck. I'd have no problem selling through them.

2nd CL buyer just backed out.
This is why I hate 'ticketed' events; or dealing with anyone for that matter.

Are you in Indy? How are you going to get the tickets to the buyer less than 24 hours before the event?

StubHub requires/ed me to drop them off at a hotel. They have two guys working there. They handled all that. The fee is paid by the buyer. So I get/got 100% of my asking price.
