COLUMBUS, Ohio, March 13, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- TicketFire, the ticketing industry's first mobile ticketing company, is introducing a new secondary market ticket marketplace. In addition to offering fans the easiest way to sell tickets via TicketFire's patent-pending Pic to SellSM technology, now any individual can buy tickets through TicketFire's mobile-friendly, resale marketplace and access ticket inventory covering 110,000 events at over 5,000 venues.
In the TicketFire marketplace, the average total ticket price at checkout is 10-15% cheaper than other ticket marketplaces. Buyers pay no fees other than standard shipping costs for hard tickets. Sellers will be charged 9% of the total ticket cost, far less than existing marketplaces that often charge 15% or more.
While the current ticket resale market is confusing, expensive and slow, TicketFire's new marketplace makes buying and selling tickets easy, cheap and fast by connecting buyers and sellers through technology. With no surprise fees tacked on at checkout, TicketFire is bringing pricing transparency to the ticket resale industry.
"TicketFire is democratizing social commerce for the concert-goer, the sports fan and the theatre enthusiast while unlocking the proprietary ticketing industry for secondary sellers," said Ray Shealy, executive chairman of TicketFire. "Our new ticket resale marketplace brings to market what fans and consumers alike have been clamoring for, an easy to use technology which provides access to the best seats at the lowest prices in real time, without excessive fees at checkout."
Sellers will also benefit from TicketFire's new Sell-To-FriendsSM feature, allowing them to easily promote available tickets from their Facebook and Twitter or Facebook Group pages.
"We created TicketFire to make buying, exchanging and selling tickets seamless, and to give buyers the confidence to know they are getting the ticket they purchase," said Ray Shealy, executive chairman of TicketFire. "Our new resale marketplace, combined with the social selling option, mirrors how our customers live and work in today's mobile, socially-connected world."
TicketFire brings a powerful combination of technology to the secondary resale market, creating the ultimate frictionless ticketing experience. By combining patent-pending app-less ticket transfer, ticket digitization and ticket resale capabilities, TicketFire users can buy and sell their tickets in real time without the need for inconvenient in person meetings.
