    Hello,
    I like to put together a group of people who are interested in buying/selling tickets. For events on Ticketmaster/Live Nation and others.. I've done ticket buying/selling for a bit.. I've checked into software, servers and subscribe to a site with a database of upcoming coming events.Well let me know if you're interested and how you could be of some help.
    Regards,
    Brian

    Looking for people with the following requirements. Some of these things I am familiar with. But could always use a second opinion.

    Areas of expertise:
    Ticket research (you're familiar with what will sell and for how much)
    Ticket software
    IT (Hosting, Servers)


    Note: This could possibly go under J/V. But I'll try it here first.

    Ticket resale (also known as ticket scalping or ticket touting), people have made good money but it also pushes up the prices for fans. Also scammers are attracted to it by advertising tickets they don't have etc.

    OK, but you never know if you are gonna sell the tickets you buy...I mean, how do they know that buyers will find them? They sell it through Ticketmaster and Ticketmaster lists their tickets if officiall seller is sold out?

    This would be nothing to do with scams at all. This is about getting a bit of the ticket brokerage pie. The goal would be to get premium tickets and if you can do that.. You'll do all right..

    Remember that a lot of states (if you are in the US) have limits in terms of laws or resale prices. Risky if you buy tickets and the artist adss another 1 or 2 concerts. Your previously sold out show is now not worth much anymore. I'd say you need buying bots to get premium tickets as the regular ones are just too hard to sell and not worth the effort. Should you buy e-tickets you also have the problem of scam claims, unless you use stubhub and pay their 20% fee...

    We can close the thread. Time to focus on more important things. Like trading .. Not concerned about resale prices or else. My state isn't affected.. Yes bots are probably needed

    Well on second thought, still looking for others who would like to form a group towards buying and selling tickets. I understand there are states where it is prohibited. My state is not one of them. But if you're interested, feel free to PM me.
    Regards,
    Brian
