FYI Ticket Master would be in the primary market and StubHub would be in the secondary market. So let’s compare apples with apples and compare StubHub to a great site I found called www.TicketListers.com (http://www.TicketListers.com)
What that really means is that theservice fee that you would see on another site would already be built into the price of your ticket. So have you heard Garth Brooks has decided to come out of retirement those tickets must be expensive you would think! TicketLister’
Also I would like to note that www.TicketListers.com was a much easier site to navigate and to search for local events near you. TicketListers.com is a legitimate and secure online marketplace for discount concert tickets, cheap sports tickets and affordable theatre tickets for sale. In addition to offering our customers affordable tickets for today's hottest events, they also offer up-to-date information about popular concert tours, theater performances, and sports teams.
They compare our own ticket prices to our direct competitors every day. This is done to ensure that ticket prices remain among the lowest in the industry. Concert-goers, theatre fans, and sports enthusiasts who are looking to buy cheap tickets online should be aware that list pricing can be deceiving. It should not be a secret that service and shipping fees are a reality in the resale market.
Some ticket brokers are straightforward about their fees while others try to hide them in other areas of their pricing structures. However it's done, ticket merchants and ticket brokers make profits from reselling event tickets. Here, we make less profit on individual seats than most other merchants. Ticket Lister's seems to aim to profit from sales volume, rather than overpricing. “The only thing that really matters is your bottom line or final price when purchasing tickets in the secondary market.”
