SI Tickets Celebrates its First Anniversary and Extends its $10 Flat Fee to All Payment Methods

The platform also unveils the industry's largest postseason ticket reservation marketplace in addition to tickets to this season's hottest sporting events, concerts and more 

NEW YORK, Aug. 17, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- SI Tickets, the fan-first ticketing site from Sports Illustrated, today expands its $10 flat transaction fee on all ticket purchases, giving customers the opportunity to save over 20% compared to tickets purchased on other sites. Previously exclusive to purchases made using Venmo, SI Tickets is opening the nominal, flat transaction fee model to customers using PayPal, credit and debit cards, furthering the brand's commitment to sports and music fans as it enters its second year of operation.

First launched in June 2021, SI Tickets puts the fan experience first. In addition to its innovative, universal flat transaction fee, SI Tickets also guarantees a 100-percent refund if an event is canceled for any reason.

"Overwhelmingly, we heard the primary pain points for fans buying tickets to live events were the hidden fees and surprise charges at checkout," said David Lane, CEO, SI Tickets. "Our first-of-its-kind, fan-first, $10 flat fee pricing model was such a resounding success, we have decided to extend it to include all payment methods. With many sites charging anywhere from 25-35% in fees that aren't disclosed until check out, we are doubling down on our platform's already unparalleled pricing transparency and payment flexibility. So, whether you're spending $300 or $3,000 on SI Tickets, you can be confident the transaction fee will only be $10." 

SI Tickets also provides the unique opportunity for fans to secure reservations to postseason college and pro sports games long before tickets become available from traditional online providers. This allows superfans to secure a seat should their favorite team make it and lock in the ticket price. Once the spot is reserved, tickets are guaranteed. Additionally, fans can resell their ticket reservations through the SI Tickets marketplace at any time.

"Every fan dreams of seeing their team in the playoffs and being there to see it live is often a once-in-a-lifetime experience," said Joe Flores, CMO, SI Tickets. "Our postseason ticket reservation platform gives fans an exclusive opportunity to secure affordable seats, delivering on our promise to provide the ultimate, fan-first, ticket-buying experience."

In addition to sporting events, SI Tickets offers ticket access to over 100,000 concerts, theatre and entertainment events across the globe.
