Ticketcorner has launched its new Fansale resale platform, which it claims “guarantees the legitimacy” of tickets.
The fan-to-fan ticket resale platform will list tickets at face value, with Ticketcorner stating “dishonest practices, inflated prices and exorbitant fees are causing considerable displeasure.”
Andreas Angehrn, chief executive of Ticketcorner, said he’s glad the company now has a “reputable” platform for reselling tickets, adding: “Fansale is not designed to pursue a commercial purpose.”
The pricing on the platform is decided based on the original ticket price with added fees. Resales are limited to a certain number of tickets per person, in a move designed to prevent transactions for profit.
Ticketcorner “guarantees legitimacy” by examining each ticket offered on Fansale for various features. It will then be given the firm’s ‘Ticketcheck’ seal of approval and released for resale.
The resale platform does not offer services for people with tickets from other providers, stating, “tickets from other systems requires significant manual input and causes substantial costs. However, Ticketcorner does not rule out a future collaboration with other ticket providers.”
Tickets are bought and sold by a fully automated process via credit card and print@home.
