StubHub, the world’s largest ticket marketplace, provides fans of all types with a safe and convenient way to buy tickets for concerts, theatre and sporting events – and offers an easy way for folks to sell their own tickets when they can’t go to an event for whatever reason.
Cool stuff, huh? And guess what? StubHub isn’t just another great American service for American customers only. It works here in the UK as well. StubHub UK has been around since December 2011 and is going strong. The site is an eBay company. So there’s some clout and know how backing it up, and all orders are covered by StubHub’s FanProtect™ Guarantee which provides a win/win situation for both buyers and sellers.
As a buyer using StubHub you’re able to get the tix you ordered, valid for entry and arriving on time. If some reason that doesn’t happen, Stubhub will locate comparable replacement tickets or provide you with a refund. For sellers, you have a free service for listing tickets that you can’t use, and you’ll get paid for sales you complete. You can set your own price and adjust it as you see fit. Buyers won’t be bothered with individual sellers contacting them while buyers won’t have to worry about getting in touch with buyers – that’s StubHub’s job.
Avoiding scalpers (and not resorting to becoming one yourself) and going with a reputable, brand-name secondary exchange is definitely a smart choice. And you can do it from the privacy of your own home or wherever you want actually. They’ve got a free, handy dandy mobile app for iPhone an Android.
