How much should I sell my tickets for?

That's up to you! Some tickets may have a minimum cost (which will be shown during the listing phase) but other than that, you can set the price at whatever you want.

If you're not comfortable setting your own price, or if you're simply not sure what a competitive price would be, SeatGeek will suggest a price during the listing phase based on historical and present data for your seats. 

Will SeatGeek charge me fees to sell my tickets?

If you sell your tickets on SeatGeek, we do collect a fee of 10%. This is to keep our platform healthy and running. When you type in the price for which you want to sell your ticket, you’ll be paid whatever that price was, minus 10%.

How will I know when my MLB tickets sell on SeatGeek?

We let you know! You will receive a notification and/or email (depending on your SeatGeek notification settings) telling you when your tickets have sold. You can update your notification preferences here! 
SeatGeek also stores your previous sales in your Ticket History in case you ever need to review them.

How will I be paid after I sell my tickets?

SeatGeek uses Direct Deposit (ACH) to send payments for sold tickets. Payouts are sent within 48 hours after the event. In order to receive your payment, you'll just need to add a payout method to your SeatGeek account. Here's all the info you'll need to set it up!

How will I send my tickets to a buyer after they sell?

You don't have to! If you sell your tickets directly from your SeatGeek account or sell your tickets on SeatGeek from the MLB Ballpark app, we will take care of sending the tickets for you!

Upon your tickets selling, we automatically and immediately transfer them into the buyer's account with a new barcode. That way, you don't have to worry about sending the tickets yourself or interacting with the buyer. 

Can I change my mind and use the tickets myself?

Absolutely! You can delist your tickets any time up until they sell. Once the tickets are delisted, you can use them yourself. Keep in mind that if the tickets sell, you will no longer be able to use them and sales cannot be reversed. 

Why are my MLB tickets locked?

If your tickets are listed for sale on SeatGeek, they will be locked from being scanned or transferred out of any MLB Ballpark, MyProVenue, or TicketMaster Club Account Manager until they are delisted from SeatGeek. Head over to Tickets in your SeatGeek account and delist your tickets in order to unlock them.
