I am writing this review to inform you of my experience with Viagogo.
This is the first time I have sold anything outside of ebay and I was looking for a reputable ticket vendor to sell my wimbledon's men's final debenture tickets through.
I looked at stubhub, getmein, seatwave and a number of other ticket sites and decided on viagogo in the end.
My tickets were two of the best seats in centre court - section 203, row D. Right opposite the net and behind the umpire and players. The debenture tickets also include a meal for two, parking and entry to the exclusive debenture lounge.
I listed the tickets on viagogo for £10,000 each, which was very much in the middle in terms of pricing. The lowest seats were £4,500 and the highest being £35,500 per ticket.
As the week went on and Murray go into the final with Djokovic, I thought the tickets would sell easily - great seats and one of the best men's wimbeldon finals in years. The first time a brit/scot could win wimbledon in over 70 years.
THE TICKETS DID NOT SELL AND AS I SENT THEM TO THE LAST MINUTE SALES OFFICE, IT MEANT THAT I WOULD HAVE TO GO TO VICTORIA ON THE DAY TO COLLECT THEM. I DID NOT ATTEND AND LOST £7500!!!
I had never in a million years assumed that these tickets would not sell and cannot understand what I did wrong? They were not expensive tickets for absolutely great seats and I have to say am left puzzled by the whole affair??? I can't even put it down to recession, as these tickets are meant for more affluent individuals?
I will not be using viagogo again. They charge a high seller fee and also the purchaser has to pay a lot on top of the purchase price. On top of this, I am not convinced they are the best avenue to sell tickets to such events.
Their top tickets listed on the site did not sell either?
