Dos and don'ts of selling concert tickets online

Do you need to sell some tickets for concerts or events which you bought few months ago?

Finding out how to sell your unwanted tickets online can feel like staring into a black hole - never ending and complex.

With an endless list of ticket sites, apps and online classified platforms finding the right option for you can get confusing - fast.

Don't worry heare are some useful cheat sheet of tips and helpful hints:

1. Scout out a good ticket listing site

If you need a quick and easy place to list your tickets it's worth doing the ground work by finding a good online site that will cater to all your needs.

Firstly, decide whether you're happy to pay for the privilege or want to list your tickets for free.

Sites like viagogo, eBay, GETMEIN and Stubhub and more all offer free, safe listing service to sell a range of concert, sports and seasonal events.

There are a range of options for payment, including Paypal or directly into your bank account.

2. Research the going rate for tickets

It is wise not to pitch your tickets to at the going rate. Look at other ticket outlets to check prices and take it from there.

This will give you the best chance of getting a sale.

3. Use social media

Shout about your sale. Advertising your ticket sale across Facebook, Twitter and another social media outlets you have access to will help more people.

More people = bigger chance of selling.

4. Need to sell last minute?

If you need to skip a concert at the last minute you can still get rid online.

There are a number of online sites that offer fuss-free last minute ticket sale services.

Stubhub's last minute service lets you the buyer drop off your tickets at a designated centre, and once sold the buyer can collect from that centre, the venue or an alternative convenient location - often right up to the day of the event.

5. Try a classified site

It's also worth trying your luck on classified sites like Gumtree too, however sites like these don't offer the same protection against anything that may go wrong with payments or delivery.
