StubHub is one of the internet’s greatest success stories. In 2007, it was acquired by ebay for $310 million. Last year, StubHub made a deal with Major League Baseball and numerous college football teams that really started to ring the register.With StubHub, sellers set the asking price for their tickets, thus making price a function of market supply and demand for a particular event. Buyers pay a 10 percent fee; sellers pay a 15 percent fee. So, you can see there’s some serious money in this business of reselling tickets.
As opposed to ebay, with StubHub, buyers and sellers never communicate. StubHub acts as the middleman and coordinates every aspect of the ticket sale, including sending a prepaid Federal Express code to the seller so that the tickets can be sent by overnight delivery.
