How does SH lower the prices on tickets when the end users are the ones pricing them? Trying to understand an example of this.
Ok, I understand. Yes, it is frustrating when I price items and then go to look at the outward facing listings that the price is different. There should be a breakdown showing what buyers see/pay. The only reason I can think it is like this is because StubHub prefers to obfuscate the fees and commissions it is charging until after the buyer commits. This is similar to what Ticketmaster does with their "conveneince fees" Maybe that means it's convenient for TM that I'm the one buying the tickets and then providing my own methods for the ticket production (PDF, printing) and completing the sale??
We really appreciate this feedback as we agree that notifying our sellers about this would be a good idea to avoid any issues with their listings. I'll be sure to pass this along and please feel free to let us know if you have any further questions or concerns!
I recommend that StubHub Should notify seller of each listing that is affected. Stubhub should send out emails to sellers and put in a PRICE IT SHOWS UP ON THE LISTING tool on the active listing page so we can easily price the tickets accordingly. I use my own tool of looking at the price that I want and multiply it by 1.05 to get a close enough price that I want to actually list it at. Most sellers are not doing this or aware of this pricing discount on the website and therefore prices are being artificially lowered by a significant amount of 5%, potentially multiple times. I know this is currently going on with the NY Yankees and US Open tennis and NYCFC.
