    The comment is fair and I elaborated on it in an earlier post and UI will not repeat myself. What is unfair about me saying that I had a terrible experience and I will never use them again. It is the truth and based on my experience. If you want further experience just look up how the Better Business Bureau perceives them. Thay have has a multitude of complaints.


    I did not tell anyone not to use them, I told them how I felt

    The reason you see such high overlap is that Vivid sellers will list with the Skybox platform which lists tickets on both Stubhub and Vivid and then removes from the other when tickets sell. In N attempt to drive traffic Vivid sometimes lowers their fee resulting in a better price for the buyer. Vivid is also more flexible in delivery methods allowing for meet and greet. I think the service at stubhub us slightly better but Vivids is still much bett r than adequate and not had any issues with it

    One last point. Sellers often list the in hand date as late as they possibly can to make sure they are not given “demerits” by SH or vivid for late delivery. As such it is possible you may end p with your tickets earlier than indicated

    You are correct regarding Skybox but that can also be said for most if not all of the Point of Sale systems that professional ticket brokers use- they can usually broadcast inventory out to multiple secondary markets including the three biggest- SH, Vivid & Tnet as well as many of the others- Event Inventory, TM +, Ticket City, Viagogo, etc.

    Since roughly 80% of the tickets listed for sale on SH are broker listings, that is why such a high % of those are also found on other sites such as Vivid and almost always at a lower “final price” which is the biggest, but by no means the only reason that I prefer Vivid.

    Nome/Andy- if your “comment is fair” and as you say, you elaborated on it in an earlier post and claim you “will not repeat yourself”, can I ask then why you felt the need to do exactly that and repeat your negative comments regarding Vivid Seats? Was one time not enough or is this the exception to your rule regarding repeating yourself? Can we expect more of this going forward?

    I think a man could have made that point just as well.
