In a perfect world, everyone would have access to tickets to any show they desired. Unfortunately, that is not our reality. Often times, we find ourselves faced with the dreaded realization that the show we wanted to attend is sold out. To some, that is a soul crushing blow. To others, it's a small roadblock that inevitably leads to the secondary market.
Why the secondary market?
As cliche as it may sound, Supply and Demand are a real thing. Ideally, popular artists would play at the same venue, 3-4 times a week, thus allowing everyone to have a chance at seeing their favorite artist. Unfortunately, that simply is not possible. So we are left with an unbalanced ratio of supply compared to demand. We all know that ticket brokers or "scalpers" buy up tickets to popular events. You may think that it is unfair, but it comes with the nature of buying tickets to any event. If "scalpers" are selling their tickets at a raised price, that means people are willing to buy those tickets at that higher price. Now that may seem unfair, and sometimes it is, but if you were to eliminate "scalpers" out of the equation, the results are still the same. The demand still exceeds the supply, and people will still be left without tickets. It's the same with anything we buy. If the new latest shoes sell out online, you can either wait it out until they are available again, or you go buy them from a secondary site, more than likely for more money. The value of the item being sold dictates the demand, and subsequently, the price.
Why we are here
There really is no solution to this imbalance in supply and demand, but we figured we can level the playing field. With our extensions, you can view the remaining number of seats available for a given show. This is not the perfect solution, but it gets you into the game. It levels the playing field between the casual consumer, and the professional broker.
What do i do with this information?
What you do with that information is up to you. You can buy your tickets right away because you saw the amount of seats left is low. If you're tight on budget and the show still has plenty of seats left, you can monitor it and hold off on buying your tickets until later. You can even use the data to see if a show will be worth attending or if its going to be a dud. The power is in your hands.
