What is a ticket broker?
A Broker is defined as "one hired for a fee to negotiate purchases, contracts, or sales." A ticket broker does just that. There are people who want to sell their tickets and there are also people who want to buy those same tickets. There are two ways that a broker can do this. The broker can buy the tickets outright from the seller and hope that they can sell them. If the market drops or the tickets don't get sold, the broker incurs the loss. The second way is the broker could take the tickets from the seller on consignment and keep a fee if they are sold. Either way, a ticket broker puts the buyers and the sellers together for a fee. Stage Front Tickets has been in business since 1985 as a licensed ticket broker.
Why are the tickets on your site listed above face value?
Licensed ticket brokers generally sell their tickets at prices above face value. This price is known as the tickets' "market value." The only place you can purchase tickets at face value is through Ticketmaster or a venue box office. However, it is important to note that these primary sellers often charge additional service fees - creating actual prices that are higher than the amount listed on the face of the ticket. Licensed ticket brokers specialize in obtaining desirable seats for high-demand and sold-out events. We get these tickets from a variety of sources, including season ticket holders and individuals who have extra tickets for events. To obtain these high-demand tickets, brokers pay a premium, or a price often well above face value. They then sell these tickets at the market value. The market value price for a ticket is determined by many factors including seat location, supply and demand, date and location of the event, etc. This means that we sometimes must sell tickets for below face value. Our ultimate goal is to provide our customers with the greatest selection of event tickets at competative prices.
Is it illegal to sell tickets for more than face value?
No. All transactions that we handle meet all state and local provisions.
Is it illegal to buy tickets for more than face value?
In most states, it is legal to buy tickets from Stage Front Tickets. If you are a resident of New York or Florida, there are certain restrictions about purchasing tickets for more than their face value. New York State statues currently prohibit Stage Front Tickets from selling tickets for events taking place in New York State to New York residents. We cannot sell tickets for events that take place in the state of New York if you have a credit card billing address or a shipping address that is located in the state of New York. If the event takes place within the state of New York, we can only sell tickets to that event to people who live outside of the state of New York. All event tickets offered for sale from Stage Front Tickets to Florida residents are included as part of a transportation package. It is not mandatory that you take advantage of the travel services we provide. Whether you accept or decline the transportation portion of your package, your purchase price will be the same.
