StubHub, a different take on buying concert tickets
StubHub is an online marketplace owned by eBay, which provides services for buyers and sellers of tickets for sports, concerts, theater and other live entertainment events. So how does it work? Sellers post available tickets at any price they choose. StubHub takes a 25% commission after the sale occurs. So you don't pay any up front commissions as a seller.
So what are the benefits for you as a buyer to use StubHub? Well, there are several. First of all, the platform offers a wide variety of tickets, from sports over theater to concert tickets. Fact is that StubHub is often used in direct by organizers to sell their tickets. As far as concert tickets goes, the service offers something that regular sellers of tickets don't offer: an alert service. That's right, if you want to go to a sold out concert, you can set up an alert that will inform you the moment someone offers a ticket for the event on the website.
But do you pay more on StubHub? Well, it depends, sold out concerts are bound to be more expensive but there are also a lot of people selling tickets who just want to get some money from a ticket they bought for a concert but can't attend it. And that's where you can do some real bargains.
To Buy Concert Tickets at StubHub.com is a straight forward experience. The service itself is pretty easy to use. As a buyer you will get the tickets you purchased delivered on your doorstep/mailbox via UPS, email or instant download, or you can pick it up the day of the event at a last-minute services office.
Good to know, via the FanProtect™ Guarantee you are sure that you'll get the tickets you ordered in time for the event and that they'll be valid for entry. If any problem would arise, they will locate comparable replacement tickets or send you a refund. You'll also get a refund if your event is cancelled and not rescheduled. So on the buyer's side you are fully protected, and that is what buying concert tickets is all about, no?
