Many of the online tickets you see available for sale are the same exact tickets from website to website. The consumer should be aware, and warned, about the deceptive pricing strategies employed by some of the ticket industry giants.
Here’s how the gimmick works. The leading online marketplaces like Stubhub, Vivid Seats, Ticketmaster, Live Nation and others show a LOW introductory ticket price to suck you in and then sock you on the back end with service and fulfillment fees. You can see from this StubHub pricing example below.
Sucker Price on StubHub: $66.62 + $21.84 Fees= $88.44 Total
Wise Consumer Price on VIPTIX: $81.64 + NO FEES= $81.64 Total
Trans-Siberian Orchestra Tickets Sat. 12/14 3:30 PM – KeyBank Center – Buffalo, NY
SECTION Upper 302
4 x $66.62
4 x $19.34
4 x $2.50
Don’t get ripped off! We have all been accustomed to paying service fees. But why?
Stubhub even has the guts to add a footnote at the bottom of every order that states: “Fees help us bring you a safe, global marketplace where you can get tickets to your favorite events.”
The same exact tickets on VIPTIX.com have NO FEES and can boast about 26 years worth of happy customers. See the VIPTIX example below for the SAME exact tickets!
Event: Trans-Siberian Orchestra at KeyBank Center MobileQR MobileQR
Date 12/14/2019 3:30 PM
302 Row: 3
Price Each: $81.64
4X $81.64 = $326.56
4X $0.00 = $0.00
From the example, you can see that VIPTIX has NO Fees AND the same exact tickets are less expensive! Would you rather pay $326.56 or Stubhub’s price of $353.85 for the SAME seats?
Don’t get fooled by their LOW introductory ticket prices. They’ll get you on the backend.
At VIPTIX.com, the price you see is the price you’ll pay. Be smart. Fees suck!
