Should I ship my cd collection along with my paper tickets when using SH. People don't want to pay the shipping on tix due to costs and all the headaches involved fir bith parties.
They will once they see the final (fee-listed) prices on TicketExchange compared to StubHub. This math got done on HF...try to buy a pair of $13 tickets on TicketExchange and the final cost is $40.95...there's hidden surcharges when buying of $5 per ticket for the electronic transfer and another $4.95 for the order processing fee. Try to buy a pair of $13 tickets on StubHub and it's $26 (the shipping costs and surcharges are already accounted for in the list price).
Yes sth's get more money back on TicketExchange compared to StubHub...you have to list a ticket at $9.50 to have it appear as $13 on StubHub because of their surcharges, and of that $9.50 you get about $8 back. On the TicketExchange ticket you get $11.70. Not insignificant...but good luck finding someone willing to pay an extra $15 for a pair from a site that's been around ages less than StubHub.
What's hilarious is if you list a $14 ticket on StubHub you get $11.90 back from it (twenty cents more than you'd get back from a $13 ticket on TicketExchange), and it shows up as $17.90 on StubHub - $35.80 for a pair. STILL less than the $13 TicketExchange pair after fees make it $40.90. Literally the only motivation for buyers to get a ticket off TicketExchange is expediency.
