Ticket Sellers

The list of avenues to potentially facilitate and encourage ticket scalping is still growing, and will continue to grow …

as long as there is no   Legislation & Enforcement  to prevent ticket scalping.

IF you know of any Ticket Sellers that DO NOT ALLOW SCALPING, please reply to this post.

Those highlighted in green below are personally KNOWN by STSA to have procedures in place that actually prevent ticket scalping, i.e. which enforce the resale of tickets to be at face value.  We are not claiming that the other organisations do not have any conditions or policies/procedures in place to counteract Ticket Scalping.

We know that the organisations/sellers highlighted below in GREEN have zero tolerance for Ticket scalping, i.e. the few in green in the List have got measures to stop ticket scalping.


SIGN the petition asking for Listings to show original ticket prices

eBay states that Tickets to Events covered by State Legislation (such as the applicable Queensland law) that dictates that ticket prices for Tickets to an event at a declared major event facility or to declared major events cannot exceed 110% of the original authorized prices, MUST be listed by using BUY IT NOW   at no more than 110% of the initial prices ( the 10% on top of a Ticket class price is to cover the Buyer’s administrative costs, i.e. online fee / postage cost etc. ). 

However, eBay does little about Tickets not covered by State Laws but of which the Terms & Conditions of the ticket sale include that the Ticket must NOT be on-sold by an Unauthorized seller for more than the face (original) value of the Ticket !

If the Seller uses the  MAKE OFFER  facility or option on eBay but still has the BUY IT NOW ( BIN ) price of a Ticket for way above the original price, then the seller is STILL POTENTIALLY  breaking a condition of purchasing the Ticket in the first place – the Condition being that the ticket must NOT be sold above face value.

    I bought Andre Rieu tickets when it went on sale which i presume is face value at $80 for Bronze seats. I see Queen of Tickets are selling them for $170 now… so I am confused, is that not ticket scalping.

    Hi Hyun, only the Ticket Sellers in GREEN text in the Post are those which take measures to stop or reduce Ticket scalping. There aren’t many of them!
