Online Ticket Agency, VividSeats.com, Launches Its "Sell Your Seats" Program

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - October 15, 2008) - Vivid Seats unveiled its "Sell Your Seats" program for ticket sellers in July of 2008, resting on nearly 10 years of industry presence as a prominent online ticket source. Now fans have the option to sell tickets for concerts, sporting events, and theater productions. There is no charge for posting tickets for sale on VividSeats.com and a printable, pre-paid and pre-addressed FedEx label is sent to the seller via email. Sellers simply mail the tickets by affixing the label to the envelope and dropping the tickets off at any local FedEx or Kinko's location and receive payment via secure, online payment leader, PayPal.

Since 2001, VividSeats.com has created an open marketplace between ticket buyers and sellers that over several years has produced an expansive selection of concert tickets and tour dates, sports tickets for a variety of events including MLB, NFL, NBA, NCAA basketball and football, and theater and Broadway tickets. Vivid Seats' consumer ticket re-sale initiative was created with usability in mind, along with an industry low commission percentage that incentivizes ticket sellers to take advantage of the pre-established market presence of this online ticket seller. In the words of co-owner, Jerry Bednyak, "The 'Sell your Seats' program was a no-brainer for us. Consumers were demanding a way to get rid of extra tickets and why shouldn't they be able to use our site as a platform to do so? This also lessens the perception of cost-risk associated with buying tickets in general."
