TicketFire Introduces Real-Time Ticket Reselling Through Social Media

Technology Removes Antiquated Cash Exchanges and Ticket Fraud From a Newly-Mobile Industry, Leveling the Digital Ticketing Industry for Consumers

COLUMBUS, OH--(Marketwired - July 14, 2016) - TicketFire, the first app to allow consumers and ticket brokers to turn any paper ticket into a digital ticket, is introducing a new way to sell and send tickets via social media. Now, any individual can resell their TicketFire digital tickets in real time -- giving sellers the opportunity to move tickets up to the last minute. Uncomfortable, inconvenient ticket transfer meetups or expedited shipping for last-minute ticket purchases are no longer necessary for today's mobile society.

The app allows sellers to set their own price for tickets, input payment information and share unique social links on any social channel including: Facebook, Twitter, Craigslist and other sites. Buyers interested in the tickets can click the link and are directed to payment information-no app download required! Once purchased, the ticket will be sent via text to their phones and for convenience a PDF is sent to their email. TicketFire deposits the money into the seller's accounts within 48 hours after the event, allowing time for the buyer to attend the event or report any problems.

TicketFire's Sell-To-FriendsSM feature makes reselling tickets easy and fast by connecting buyers and sellers through technology. TicketFire is democratizing social commerce for the concert-goer, the sports fan and the theatre enthusiast while unlocking the proprietary ticketing industry for secondary sellers. In releasing this technology, TicketFire allows consumers to sell their tickets how and when they want, putting consumers in control of tickets they have purchased, but cannot use.

"We created TicketFire to make exchanging and selling tickets seamless, and to give buyers the confidence to know they are getting the ticket they purchase," said Ray Shealy, Executive Chairman of TicketFire. "The social selling component will likely come naturally to our users in today's mobile, socially-connected world."

TicketFire is free for consumers who want to digitize their tickets, and $0.99 per ticket for high-volume users who digitize more than 10 tickets a month. Sellers will be charged 9% of the total ticket cost and buyers a 3% credit card processing charge.

The app is available for iOS. Download at the App Store. Learn more about TicketFire at www.ticketfire.com.
