    whats seatwave?



    Ticket agents. People sell tickets on there site and when you get the tickets they hand the money over to them. They are also on quidco.:thumbsup:

    Like an escrow service for tickets

    Pretty good site. Legit. Beware if you are a seller though and are expecting to be paid soon. They only pay you once the event has taken place.

    No seatwave send you a pack out. You send the tickets in that and when it is received by the buyer they will send you an email confirming. Then when the event has happened (to stop you canceling the tickets) they pay you what your due.

    My wife paid a lot of money for central, near the stage, tickets for a big concert at the O2 over a month ago via Seatwave. When the package, containing the tickets, arrived it had clearly been tampered with and the tickets were missing, UPS accepted full liability for the theft. Seatwave kept asking my wife to call back every few weeks, either as UPS had to investigate, or a manager had to authorise our new tickets, however this is a bit of a con.

    Please be warned Seatwave’s policy is to reissue tickets of the same value sold on their site. However as they kept delaying in issuing tickets until much nearer the event, the ticket prices kept increasing, meaning that they would only offer tickets for seats that were not as good as the originals paid for. They even asked if we were refusing these further back seats, as it is would then have been up to their discretion to give our money back, (as we had been offered seats of equivalent value, which the site guarantees).

    My wife was really disappointed she had been told she would get seats in the same area, she was also told that the manager had gone home for the night, only to be passed to him by another member of staff when she called back half hour later and then all the staff just kept repeating that they would issue tickets of the same value not quality.

    During all these delays a number of tickets in the same area at the same price were put on sale, not once were we contacted or offered these as an alternative.

    My advice is if you buy from Seatwave and there is a problem do not let them fob you off, as you may end up paying premium prices and not get the seats you want. Demand an instant replacement, which I doubt you will get, or your money back.

    My wife will miss the concert that she really wanted to see, while someone is going to be sitting in our stolen seats. Seatwave’s solution, sit at the back for the same money or take your money and sod off. :x

    i want to buy 5 sos tickets, and the cheapest ones seemed to be £287 so i hope to be getting them- I'm just worrying about the too good to be true issue here, and also how does it work? do i get them taken to my house or do i pick them up there? i don't know
