    got tickets to a gig in the three arena ( little mix) turns out they dont want to go !
    so whats the best way to return/resell the tickets. i see ticketmaster have a resell option but does that feed the seatwave extortion or is it best to put them on donedeal ?

    Post them on toutless.com for face value payments
    Alternatively, post them on local Facebook pages to see if someone in your area is interested in purchasing (check with the group prior to posting, some groups do not permit ticket sales but might allow swap for something else type of adverts)

    The ticketmaster resale actually works quite well. You can only charge what you paid so the buyer pays, at most, the same as you plus another booking fee. The tickets are transferred to them so they don't have the risk of them being fake or multiple. You get the money transferred 10 days after the event.

    I'm fully on board the "ticketmaster are scum" bandwagon but in this case I think it's a really good service

    But I'll second toutless as well, great little website

    Toutless are great..ive also used ticketswap.ie a couple of times recently..brilliant for selling in demand e-tickets..you upload a pdf of your tickets to their site and when they sell they forward them to the buyer so no legwork for you.

    Seller pays a fee to TM too, as well as the buyer. So add those two to the initial booking fee and they are triple dipping.

    No, there's no selling fee now. I sold some Eagles tickets recently and got every cent back (ticket face value plus booking fee I'd paid)

    Buyer had to pay an additional fee

    You might need to sell for less of course, depends on demand

    Some lad was trying to sell tickets on toutless he had bought for EP from the Ticketmaster resale system. He said there was a 15% markup on the face value (which for EP is over 30 euro). Not sure what world we're in where a 15% markup isn't considered touting but it certainly matches my definition of touting. We've added some rules to say we won't be allowing this sort of passing on of these fees. Also stopping people listing Platinum tickets (specifically where there's no difference to real tickets).

    Stevie Wonder resales had about 45 euro in fees. I can see a post saying it was 42.50 but those might have been cheaper ones.

    Put them on adverts.ie


    Face value only. Touts are removed quickly
