where did you resell them. looking on stubhub, minus their 10% fees, it looks like max you can make $10 - based on selling at the same offered lowest price right now. is there somewhere else to sell that is better, any tips?
I listed them on both Stubhub and Ticketmaster. Stubhub takes 10%, Ticketmaster 15%. I listed them for the same net price, i.e. higher on TM than SH. Interestingly, the tickets sold only on TM at the higher price.

Regarding pricing, I started off at a higher price, and as it got closer I lowered. You donít have to be the cheapest, but you should be near the bottom. And you have to be able to risk waiting for the last day. I had tickets for a tonightís show and they sold yesterday at 3x their price. Donít have any explanation why tickets sell at what price, but IME it was worth it to hold if you can afford the expense.

FWIW, I bought Hamilton tickets for them last year, then changed my mind and held them..I just sold them for a 75% profit. Might be worth it to hold for yourself.

I think the biggest chutzpah is how MYS has been telling us that they can only buy the iPads below cost because otherwise the deal wonít work for them, and then Friday and today they are offering full price on the same items. What happened to it ďnot working at the current priceĒ?? I have no problem with being cheap, but at least be honest!

I hear you and the others loud and clear but the buying group isnít what it used to be were we would be able to give $20 on a item the margins are just not what they used to be and I think buyers need to understand that. When we can give we do
Iíll accept that, maybe others here will as well. Would still be nice to offer a dollar or two on the big ticket items.

You miss read what I wrote I was responding to those who think were using that 5% so buyers donít make that 5% which is false
Granted, conspiracy theories can be wrong, but still, you have been making it less desirable for people to buy lately, and that hurts some buyers.

no group cares how much buyers make weíre just putting deals out buy at your own free will
Which is kind of sad. Till now I have felt the buying groups and buyers had a mutual deal: we help each other out, since we both need each other. This is clearly no longer the case. I would now have a hard time shelling out my time to return items that donít work for you (ps classic), given that the groups have stopped caring about their buyers and their time. Of course, it is all optional to buy or not, but you are now taking advantage of people who have either started relying on groups for a side income, or who have signed up for cc and are now at a loss to meet spend requirements. Upsetting turn of events.

It also takes a lot of capital to get one off the ground
Not so much capital. Just float the checks for 20 days, + off for Nissan cuz no Tachnun. ;)

As someone mentioned, now would be the perfect time for someone to start a buying group and offer commission. Even lowball amounts would draw the masses given the lack of any commission from MYS/USA etc. Only question is, how does one start a buying group? As in, who are the buying groups selling the stuff to?

the first thing you said was we donít hve to worry about selling the tickets and then you said youíre still holding Hamilton tickets...? Are you the tickets buying group guy? Or a buyer for them? :o

Neither lol. I bought tickets unrelated to this group. I bought them to resell and they still haven't sold.

yes I was pretty shocked some random guy got my number. Not right at all.

Yeah sry for making a new thread not sure why I cud not just combine it here..if someone knows how to do that...pls do.

What I want to know is where are they selling these tickets to? Do they get drastically more expensive as it gets closer to the showing date that they then flip it??

Something like that. The good thing would be that all the risk is on them to sell them, not you. I'm still holding Hamilton tickets from 6 months ago  :-\

Curious about this new group though. Anyone else have info on them? And who gave out peoples numbers???

Seriously? You give him under 4 hours to respond, and after that he gets a comment for not meeting your ďpromptness?? Cut him some slack. Heís not your personal assistant.

My bad. I must have misread his message. No hard feelings.
