Ticketmaster has been around the block a few times and boasts many years of successful business under their belt. On January 25, 2010, Ticketmaster and Live Nation (a company who focuses on concert promotions and live events) merged companies. They are officially under the name of Live Nation Entertainment. With affordable options for ticketing your own events, to competitive prices for tickets and events, this is a very professional company that can most likely fit your ticketing needs.
- Can print ticket
- Mobile app
- Lots of experience
We like the option for ticket printing. You can use it for your own event and have professional tickets to sell. You can also contact the company to find out how to list your own event on their website and all fees that are related.
They are mobile friendly and feature an app for both iPhones and Android devices.
We like that they have been in business for almost 50 years. They have the most experience in ticket sales across the United States and Canada. Their customer service has been said to be very friendly and helpful.
Ticketmaster also has a few guarantees that make them stand out. Their Ticketmaster Fan Guarantee makes them a very trustworthy and reliable company to work with. Customers know where they are receiving tickets from, that they can exchange tickets if they find a better deal, and that they will be refunded if the event is cancelled. This peace of mind that customers enjoy when working with Ticketmaster is something Ticketmaster has worked hard to provide.
They do not have a set fee schedule. The fees chosen for these tickets are those that each individual client sets for their own venues and events and they can vary greatly.
The other fees issued to tickets seem to be a bit excessive. You get your base price, a service fee/processing fee, a TM+ resale service fee, a delivery fee, a facility charge, and then taxes.
The Bottom Line
Ticketmaster knows the ticket business and they have a streamlined process on the web and on their app. They have a huge range of events to choose from and clear policies listed on their website. It would be nice to know more clearly what exactly their range of fees are on tickets ahead of time, so comparing Ticketmaster to other ticketing companies would be easier. However, they have been in business the longest of the companies we've researched. They provide excellent service, a return policy, and even ticket insurance. We recommend Ticketmaster for ticket purchasing needs.
