Recommended Posts

They don't allow you to print your own tickets anymore?

No printing ticks.  Transfer  only on device.

I wonder what all of the scalpers are going to do with extra tickets?

I know one "fan" who pays for his entire season ticket cost selling tickets to opposing fans.

I asked him who was his favorite Bills player and it was a player playing for another team!

 

I think this will cost teams season ticket sales when purchasers realize it is more difficult to sell tickets.

Cards in hand.   No paper

Transfer tickets to phone

i have been told that this could be the last year for the season ticket cards per a NFL policy. Potentially going to a smart phone only ticket which eliminates from seasons after an eternity of buying. Apparently the NFL wants all the secondary market action and thus the Ticket Exchange will be the easiest way to sell. I'm not impressed.

The teams want a triple fee cut from the scalping of tickets on Stubhub, so they will find a way

Not at all impressed either.  Some do not have smart phones (my company tried to require me to have one for work and I said if it was a requirement they were obligated to pay for it so they found alternate) or want to carry them into a stadium.  A friend with an expensive Apple smart phone was pickpocketed of his at a Washington game and when he reported to stadium security they said there is nothing they can do and it is not worth effort to try to find thieves.

You make a sale, you print a shipping invoice for UPS store. Go there with the invoice and tickets that were sold, and the rest should be easy.

So interesting. Couple of points

 

1) You can sell on StubHub still with an email delivery (transfer) of the tickets within 24 hrs. I have done with Caps and Wizards tickets over the last year..both bought and sold.

 

2) Was told last night TicketMaster and StubHub have formed an agreement so that you will be able to list a barcode on StubHub from your account manager and sell just like you do on Ticketexchange.

 

I am going to clarify and confirm that today.

They dont for the Sabres anymore. Everything is either transfer to E-mail, or scanned off the One Buffalo App.

Stuvian, would you consider selling your phone with the tickets?

I live in Canada so I'm not sure my phone has much market value

#2 is the correct answer. I sold some tickets already and entered the barcode into StubHub from my Account Manager. 

 

The two definitely are linked because once I entered the barcode into StubHub, my Bills TM Account Manager had marked the tickets as sold. In the past, I would have had to manually go back into Account Manager and delete the listing.

 

This is actually very convenient.

 

OP - good luck getting anything more than $10 a ticket for preseason.

That's weird.  I was always taught that Canadian cell phones looked like this:

I love having the ticket on my phone. Better then having a physical copy that you might lose. People just need to catch up with technology. I don't know why so many are technically impaired.

All leagues are trying to get all the upside there is to the secondary market - and trying to limit the number of sellers - in order to not have the downside.  They are price fixing.

I'm not technologically impaired, but there are times, where my phone starts to malfunction. And it can be an old phone, or a brand new one that does this. I also need to make sure my phone is fully charged, just to get in the venue. I feel much more comfortable having a plastic card on me.

wow, you clearly didn't read the original post. There are no physical tickets to ship any more. Only digital.

BTW, especially for @Limeaid , you can absolutely bring ID and print the tickets out at the ticket office right next to Adpro if you lack a mobile phone or are visually impaired! So that's great news

I know that these things don't happen frequently but last week my 10 month old LG smartphone died suddenly for no reason. The battery was not low. The phone just crashed just like that. I brought it back to the store and they repaired it. It took them a week. They have no idea why it did that. I had a screenshot of all my mobile tickets for the season. They are now gone. No big deal because we are in July and I have plenty of time to redownload the Apps and save again a screenshot of all my tickets but what am I supposed to do if it happens again on a Sunday morning while I am tailgating before a game?

go to the ticket office and show id and they will print out your tickets...easy peezy

 

Now, what is more likely...your phone to totally go on the fritz like that or forgetting hard tickets at home, or losing them etc and really being stuck..this really is a much better solution.

 

Only downside is it kills scalpers outside the stadium...which sucks. I love to scalp tickets(not bills as i have seasons)...now have to pay for a fee and not quite get the same deal
