At least they are on the good end...but at $114/pop it's not always so simple to move them. Sure, the premium games won't pose much of a challenge. It's the dates against the less popular opponents that will likely be a tougher sell.
No more Ticket Exchange, remember. Hopefully the new site they are using doesn't charge too much commission, or I won't be using it.

Didn't they just change the name of it? Pretty sure Ticket Master ran TE anyway.

No, TicketsNow has been around for a while -- MSG just recently came to a marketing agreement with them or something, which is why they are changing the system. I think they charge more than 5% commission, and I'm not sure if your account gets directly credited like past years. I could be wrong on all of this, though -- can anyone verify?

Pretty damn excited about this!

And thanks guys for your responses, without your valuable input we probably wouldn't jumped on these tickets.

I believe it is a 15% commission. HOWEVER, someone who also has seasons said they spoke to their rep and was told it would only be 10%. As far as whether it gets credited to your account, no idea. TicketsNow IS owned by ticketmaster. They are a secondary site. How that is not a conflict of interest is beyond me.

So 10% or 15% from the subscriber and another 15% or so from the buyer. Pretty good gig for those monopolistic ********.

I'll never use TicketsNow if they try and take 15%.

I have a better website that is free to both the buyer and the seller -- It's called HFBoards.

As as soon as the Rangers discover it, they will probably start charging 15% for electronic ticket forwarding

Remember, with TE the price you listed for was jacked up BEFORE the buyer saw it. Not sure on the percentage, but the effect was the same as a commission from sellers.

With Ticketsnow, I ASSUME, the price you ask for will be the price seen by buyer, then we pay a commission. So, just increase your ask (like TE automatically did), and there should be little/no difference.

I also liked the way TE worked, but this change SHOULD not be the end of the world. Probably very close to neutral financially speaking.

I'm not sure I follow. Are you suggesting that Ticketsnow will only be charging the seller a fee? Because I would assume that in addition to our 5% fee (with TE) going up to 10% or 15%, they will still be tacking on the same (or similar) 15% fee to the buyer. Whether the sellers fee is already included in the on site listing is irrelevant as we're still looking at a 100% to 200% increase in our fee. You can't simply say to increase our ask, because buyers still have a maximum price they are willing to pay. Any way you slice it we (sellers) take a hit when our fees are increased.

What I am saying is:
Stubhub, you list $100 tickets, they show on site for $100, buyer pays $110, you get $85, SH gets $25.

Old Ticket Exchange, you list $100 tickets, they show up on site as $110, buyer pays $120, you get $95, TE gets $25. So you might lower your price so buyer only pays $110, you would still get close to $85.

New Ticketsnow, ? Maybe they use SH formula? Maybe they use TE formula with 10% seller fee (vs 5%). Maybe they use same formula as old TE.

Different ways to get same result.

On SH buyer is paying 25% more than you are getting.

On old TE, not sure of exact %, but I think it was close to this same 25%. They just made it seem like 5% fee for you. They took your $100 tickets and immediately added 10%, showing them for $110. But really same result.

New Ticketsnow ?. Sure it will be in same ballpark.

Meet the new boss, same as the old boss!

All said, I was happy with TE and not a fan of the change. Will probably be worse for us, but I would not think 10% worse like some fear.

The NBA is launching its own stubhub like the NFL just did. The NHL can't be far behind:

TE charged 17% above list price and charged the season ticket holder 5%. I believe that the new TicketsNow is going to be just like Stubhub sanctioned by the team. They will charge the Season Ticket holder 15%. On TicketsNow you can also list tickets for below face value which you could not do on TE.

Having purchased tickets on TicketsNow before, they charge a fee for buyers that they call a "Service Charge". I'm not sure what the exact percentage is that they charge but I think it's even more than the 10% Stubhub charges. If the Rangers are also saying that they're taking 15% from sellers, it's a lose-lose for buyers and sellers. Not sure why any STH would want to use TicketsNow.

Not what I wanted but I wound up with a half season in 208. Hopefully I'll be able to get the full season next year.

Partial plans cost more per ticket than full season plans. Still cheaper than buying tickets individually.

They called me last week re: season tickets and told me the cheapest available (for two seats next to each other) was $155/game (for each seat). Not sure if you could find a single seat for cheaper.
