Q. What are "Premium Seats", "After Market Tickets" and "Tickets Sold Above Face Value"?
A. Our suppliers determine the sales price for a ticket based on several factors, the most important being the cost and difficulty of obtaining the ticket and the established market value for similar tickets. After the initial pricing, price fluctuations often occur based on supply and demand.
Many people are shocked to find that the face value printed on the ticket they ordered is much lower than the price they paid. It is important to keep in mind that we live in a free market society, and all goods and services you purchase are priced so that the seller will make a profit. As an example, many people would happily pay $10 for a souvenir t-shirt, while the initial product cost to the vendor may be a small fraction of the sale price. Because the "face value" of the shirt is not displayed, the market price of $10 is understood to be fair. The customer may or may not realize the variety of peripheral expenses to the vendor but is satisfied to buy a desired product at a mutually agreed upon price. In the case of t-shirts, like many other consumer products, may be 5 or 10 times the original acquisition cost to the vendor. With tickets, however, the mark-up is usually significantly smaller since ticket brokers purchase the tickets they sell at prices above face value.
"Premium Seats", "After Market Tickets" and "Tickets Sold Above Face Value" are tickets that are listed to our website by licensed suppliers on the assumption that the event will sell out or for events that are not sold out, that clients might want to purchase better seats than the events box office may be offering. "Premium Seats", "After Market Tickets" and "Tickets Sold Above Face Value"can be as below the face value (price printed on the ticket) plus a small service up to as much as Ten (10) times face value plus delivery and any local or state taxes that may apply.
You should shop around for your best deal and the quality of the ticket your looking for but be sure to use a licensed broker and not just some person listing tickets on website such as Craigs List, Stub Hub or print ads with no guarantee or track record.
