Looking for a way to resell concert tickets, or track down a seat for a sold-out gig? Forget dodgy ticket touts, there's now a way to get your hands on second-hand tickets in a way that's safe and transparent.
TicketSwap is the platform doing what it says on the tin — buy or sell unwanted tickets through a Facebook verified and price-capped process, and you'll never have to deal with shady touts again.
We've all had to bypass those ticket-sellers outside tube stations, trying to fob off tickets for sold-out gigs for up to five times the original price. Whether online or on the streets, the practice of reselling tickets is actually still legal (see our article earlier this year all about touts) but with high prices and lack of guarantee that those precious bits of paper are the real deal, people are looking for a safer alternative.
TicketSwap is a reliable and convenient way to buy or sell tickets for anything from club nights to concerts, and theatre to sport. With strict checks and collaborations with various partners, fraud is proactively prevented and all sellers are verified.
So how does it work? To start with, there's no face-less anonymity with this platform — Facebook login is mandatory, meaning that you can easily see who the buyers and sellers actually are, and several criteria verify users.
If you've got tickets to sell, all you'll need to do is set up a listing — you'll also need to upload the e-ticket before it's available for sale, so that TicketSwap can verify it's the real deal. Set a price and when it's sold, receive your money the next working day — buyers will get the ticket as soon as the payment goes through.
If you're looking to buy, you'll be pleased to know that there is a maximum cap of 20% above the original price, so you won't be paying through the roof.
