Reason Why We Can Give You Large Ticket Discounts
I’ve been selling tickets for a long time. We understand that people often have questions about why tickets are priced the way they are, and we’re not always able to respond to every question. We want to take some time to explain in detail how we price our tickets, so that you can understand why our prices can be cheaper than other ticket companies.
We Are Ticket Brokers
When you buy tickets from us, you are buying tickets from a ticket broker. There are thousands of ticket brokers around the world. The majority of ticket brokers work online or over the phone and sell tickets through their website or call center. We are one of these brokers.
But there is one important difference: our unique business model allows us to offer discounts of up to 20% off regular retail prices, even on sold out events! In addition, because we have a large network of suppliers, we are able to offer a much larger inventory than any one box office can provide.
We Buy From Other Brokers
You may be wondering where we get our tickets since we aren’t affiliated with any venue or box office. It’s all about supply and demand! There is a secondary market for event tickets which consists of all the people
People are always asking us why we can offer such large discounts on tickets. The reason is quite simple: the makeup of our prices, and our ability to discount them so heavily.
We often have a surplus of tickets for big events, and we need to sell them fast. We sell these tickets for as low as $5.00 per ticket so we can move them quickly. You will never see these discounted tickets on another site.
Our 100% customer satisfaction guarantee promises you will receive the exact tickets you ordered or your money back in full. If the event is cancelled and not rescheduled, you will be refunded the entire purchase price you paid for the tickets including shipping costs. If the event is rescheduled, your tickets will be valid for the new date of the event. We stand behind our product!
Our goal is to make you a happy customer by providing excellent service and great seats at cheap ticket prices when you order with us online or over the phone at 1-888-937-0108.
A lot of people ask me how we can afford to give such large discounts on tickets.
I would love to be able to tell you that we have some kind of clever system for buying up ticket inventory at a discount, but the truth is much more mundane: it’s all about volume.
If you go to any ticket outlet and ask them if they can offer you a discount, the answer will almost invariably be “no.” That’s because when most ticket companies sell tickets they’re only getting 10% or so of the face value as their cut. If they cut that in half, they won’t make any money on the transaction. So offering discounts to customers just isn’t an option – at least not if they want to stay in business very long.
When we started selling tickets online back in 1994 (yes, 1994 – we were one of the first things on the web outside of academia), our strategy was a bit different: rather than trying to get customers to come to us, we went looking for them. The idea was that by spending money to buy ads in places like USA Today and other newspapers, we’d be able to generate traffic by offering low prices, then make up for it with volume. And it worked. Because unlike traditional ticket outlets, which
First, we want to tell a few things about ourselves. We are in business since 2007 and we are one of the largest ticket sellers in North America. We have access to thousands of tickets for all games and events across the country. It does not matter if you are looking for tickets for a small event or a big one, we can get them for you. It also does not matter if you are looking for premium seats or cheap tickets, we have them all.
When people ask us why our ticket prices are so low, we always answer that it is because our prices are lower than the competition. This is true but we do not think that this is the only reason why our prices can be low. Here we will explain the other reasons why our ticket prices can be low:
Maximum Service – We don’t like long lines and waiting on hold. That’s why we offer our customers live chat support 24/7/365 via phone or email. You can call us at any time and you will talk to a real person who will answer every question that you may have about your order or any event details. We do guarantee an easy purchase process and great customer service before and after your purchase!
Low Overhead – Our company has grown over the years thanks to

A friend of ours, an academic, recently bought a full-price ticket for her family to see the Alvin Ailey Dance Theater in New York City. Afterwards she told us that the ticket seller had explained that students could get forty dollar tickets for twelve dollars. Our friend was annoyed: she felt that admission should be based on need, not age.
We sympathize with her frustration. But we also think there is something interesting going on here. Why can’t our friend get a discount? And why do students get discounts?
The answer is that the theater is probably charging students less because they have to. Tickets are not like milk or gasoline: they aren’t priced according to cost and demand. They are priced according to what people will pay. The theater owner wants to make as much money as possible, so he charges each customer what he thinks he can get away with charging him. For adults there is one price; for students, another; for seniors, another; and so on.
The theater owner knows how much each group values a ticket, based on how much they have paid in the past. But how does he know this? Because in the past he has charged them different prices and seen how many tickets were sold at each price — not just for this
I’ve been meaning to write this post for a while now, but it’s surprisingly hard to find an interesting way to talk about ticket prices. So I’m going to try and cut through the bullshit by making this as straightforward as possible.
In the concert/festival industry, tickets are sold at a fixed price that is determined by the promoter and/or artist, with the exception of dynamic pricing (more on that later). The promoter and artist do their best to price each ticket according to what they believe the market will bear. This means they try to analyze things like supply and demand, competition, and the general economy in order to maximize their profits.
Unfortunately, this is not an exact science, and there is a lot of guesswork involved in setting ticket prices. The price you see on a ticket might be far higher than what the promoter/artist thinks it’s actually worth. For example, let’s say an artist wants to set the price of a particular ticket at $50. After factoring in all of their costs (advertising, booking fees, venue costs, stage production costs, etc), they determine that they need to sell 50 tickets at $50 each in order to turn a profit (this is called breaking even). Unfortunately, their research shows that
