Hi, I have recently put two tickets to a concert for sale on

This answer was rated:

Hi, I have recently put two tickets to a concert for sale on two sites - "Viagogo" and "Getmein". Whilst I was out of the country I was notified via e mail that Viagogo had sold these tickets; but before I could take them off the "Getmein" site they also confirmed a sale.
I called the "Getmein" team and explained the situation, but they informed me that the minute I listed my tickets with them I had a contract, and as I now could not provide the tickets they would now source replacements which I would be liable for at 150% more expensive than my list price of £200.
What are my options here, it seems that whatever I say, "getmein" will take the best part of £300 from me for nothing in return, but due to the fact that I did not take down my tickets immediately I sold them via Viagogo.
Can you help me?

It is Selling Member's duty to respond to all enquiries from GET ME IN! in relation to ticket or ticket packages the Selling Member has listed for sale on the Website by telephone and/or email in a prompt and timely manner. Selling Member recognises that in order to facilitate an efficient marketplace for live event tickets, certain enquiries and disputes need to be resolved quickly, particularly in the cases of upcoming events. Selling Member therefore agrees to respond to all enquiries specifically related to orders placed for tickets it has listed for sale on the Website from GET ME IN! within 24 hours or by the specified deadline provided in writing via email or post. Failure to do so may result in a default credit/refund at the expense of the Selling Member. The Selling Member shall handle the management of their account in a reasonable and cooperative manner. If any abusive or threatening behaviour is reported, GET ME IN! reserves the right to terminate its business relationship with the Selling Member with immediate effect and without notice to the Selling Member.

2.4 Business Sellers. If you are selling tickets as a business you are required to declare this under the ‘my account’ tab. You will need to tick the ‘business seller’ box and provide accurate business name and contact details.

3.1 Listing Tickets as a Selling Member. Approved Selling Members of GET ME IN! may list tickets for sale on the Website. As part of the listing process, the Selling Member must assign a price to the tickets and provide information such as the event, date, section,, and row. Further instructions and requirements on listing items can be found once logged in on the Website. By placing a ticket for sale on the Website you are offering to sell that particular ticket to a Buyer for the price assigned to it by you. If Buyer accepts the offer for sale of that ticket, you are contractually bound to supply that ticket to them.

3.2 Marketplace. Please note that GET ME IN! provides an open market place through which tickets may be purchased or sold by our Buyers and Selling Members. We do not take ownership of any tickets listed by You and We are therefore not party to any contracts that arise when tickets are sold and purchased via the Website. Please also note that there is no guarantee given by GET ME IN! (or otherwise) that your tickets will sell and, in the event that they do not sell, GET ME IN! will not be responsible for their purchase.

3.3 Ticket Description. For each ticket You list for sale on the Website, you agree to provide full and accurate details of the section and row which is printed on the tickets for sale. For Standing or General Admission tickets you agree to describe them as 'General Admission'. You agree to describe the tickets listed for sale on the Website in the most honest and non-misleading manner.
In the event you cannot locate the correct section under which to list your tickets you agree to contact GET ME IN! for resolution before listing your tickets for sale. If a listing is deemed to be misleading then you agree that any associated orders may be declared void, and you will be liable for any charges incurred due to refunded or replacement tickets.

3.4 Seating Arrangements. All tickets listed in a single listing must be seated together.

3.5 Restricted View or other restrictions. You are required to provide any additional information which is printed on the tickets related to restricted view, family section, no alcohol permitted, concessions, etc.

3.6 Guaranteed Ticket Fulfillment. Once you offer to sell a particular listing of tickets and a Buyer accepts the offer for sale of that ticket, you are contractually bound to supply that ticket to the applicable Buyer. Ticket listings are a legal representation of actual seat location and other details relevant to the tickets. You will be charged either (i) a replacement fee (see Section 7 below) or (ii) 150% of the value of the transaction (to cover any FanGuard guarantee payments which GET ME IN! is required to make as a result of your failure to deliver tickets), by GET ME IN! if you list tickets for sale and those exact tickets are not available or are not delivered.

In the event that you are unable to supply tickets you are required to contact the Seller Support Team for further instructions. The Selling Member agrees not to dispatch alternate tickets from those ordered by the Buyer without first contacting the GET ME IN! Seller Support Team. Failure to supply tickets as listed may result in a charge to the Selling Member.

If we are informed by a Buyer that incorrect tickets have been received then the Selling Member agrees to dispatch the correct tickets no later than 10 business days before the event date, except in the case where the event is within 2 weeks of the ticket delivery date. If the event is within 2 weeks of the delivery of incorrect tickets then the Selling Member agrees to send out the correct tickets within 48 working hours of receipt of the returned tickets to GETMEIN! Additionally the Selling Member will be liable to a £20.00 administrative fee to rectify the error made on incorrect ticket dispatch.

3.7 Accurate Pricing. Ticket market prices are volatile and can change on an hourly basis at times. With this in mind, the Selling Member accepts full responsibility for maintaining current prices on the Website of its tickets. No matter what the price or circumstances, the Selling Member agrees to fulfill the order at the price agreed at the time the Buyer accepts the offer for sale. For this reason it is essential that you maintain up-to-date and accurate prices at all times. It is Your responsibility to ensure that the details You provide in relation to tickets that You list for sale on the Website are full and accurate. If You have listed prices of a ticket incorrectly and it is, in our reasonable opinion, that the price you provided was an error then we may try and resolve the issue with the applicable Buyer providing you notify us of the error within 48 hours of the sale confirmation email. However, you must take full responsibility for any errors you make in listing tickets for sale as once a Buyer purchases tickets via the Website a legal contract is made. If you list a ticket price incorrectly and subsequently fail to provide tickets to the Buyer then we shall be entitled to charge you 150% of the value of the transaction made by that Buyer for Your tickets.

3.8 Taxes. You are responsible for including all taxes, including Value Added Tax (VAT) and any other taxes required on your listings, in the prices you list on Our Websites. If in doubt, please seek advice of a tax expert to determine which taxes you are required to collect from Buyers.

3.9 Indemnity. It is the responsibility of the Selling Member to provide full and accurate details of tickets it wishes to list for sale on the Website. Failure to provide full and accurate details (including without limitation seat location details and the price) may lead to GET ME IN! or applicable Buyers suffering loss or damage and You agree to indemnify and hold harmless GET ME IN! and applicable Buyers from and against all losses, liabilities, damages, fines, expenses and costs arising out of or in connection with Your failure to provide full and accurate details of tickets that You list for sale on the Website.

4.1 Confirmed Orders. When we receive an order from a Buyer for tickets that you have listed we will inform you via email. A confirmation email will be sent to the Selling Member's indicated email address, and in some cases we may inform the Selling Member by telephone. The confirmation email contains instructions on how to deliver and complete the order. You cannot amend or remove a ticket listing, description, or price once the offer for sale of a ticket has been accepted by a Buyer. It is your responsibility to ensure that you provide Us with Your correct email address for correspondence as you shall still be liable and bound by the contract with the Buyer whether or not You receive a confirmation from Us.

4.2 Pending Orders. In certain cases, we may require additional fraud checks with respect to an order and will inform you that an order is pending but undergoing fraud checks. In such circumstances, We will subsequently inform you that the order has either been approved/confirmed or cancelled. You cannot amend or remove a ticket listing, description, or price once the order has been marked as ‘pending’ until we inform you that the order is otherwise cancelled due to failing fraud checks.

4.3 Cancellations. If an event for which you sell tickets via the Website is cancelled and not re-scheduled then You agree to refund the amount paid by the applicable Buyer for those tickets provided that the Buyer returns the original tickets to You (via Us) in good time for You to obtain a full face value refund from the promoter or organiser of the applicable event. If you are notified of any changes to the event and/or tickets (including, without limitation, where alternative seats have been provided instead of the original seats), you shall immediately notify GET ME IN! of any such changes and where applicable, provide full details of the alternative seats. GET ME IN! will endeavor to then contact your buyer to advise of the changes however we reserve the right to discount or cancel the order at our discretion. Whilst we try to ensure the accuracy of orders, sometimes technical errors may occur. In the event that a technical error has resulted in an incorrect order GETMEIN! will notify you within 48 hours, and the order will be cancelled to allow you to relist your tickets.

In rare circumstances GET ME IN! may be required to cancel and refund a confirmed order if payment is recalled by the associated bank. Where possible we will contact you to advise you of the cancellation and allow you the option to relist your tickets.

5.1 Delivery. The Selling Member agrees to deliver the exact ticket inventory ordered by a Buyer from the Seller via the Website. The Selling Member accepts ultimate responsibility for secure and timely delivery of the tickets and agrees to ship via the specified delivery method and to insure the delivery. Please be aware that although box office collection is allowed at specific venues, it is at the sole discretion of GET ME IN! to permit such an arrangement for the Buyer.

The Selling Member agrees to dispatch tickets with a valid returns address displayed on the envelope (i.e. GET ME IN! PO Box address). The Selling Member also accepts ultimate responsibility for deliveries that go missing or arrive after the event time or date or too close prior to the event time or date that it is not reasonably practicable for the Buyer to attend. The Selling Member accepts that if any item dispatched by the Royal Mail Special Delivery or Saturday Guaranteed Delivery is lost or delayed, the Selling Member is responsible for the submission of relevant claim forms to the Royal Mail, and liable for the full costs of any refund issued to the Buyer. The Selling Member agrees to deliver tickets to Buyers within 24 hours if tickets are on-hand, or within 24 hours of those tickets becoming available, not including weekends and holidays. In any event, the Selling Member guarantees to deliver tickets to the applicable Buyer in good time prior to the event date (this date to be agreed with GET ME IN! when late dispatch is inevitable). The Selling Member agrees that tickets should be dispatched by 12pm, 5 working days prior to the event date (unless otherwise stated in writing by GET ME IN!). If the Selling Member fails to provide a valid tracking number and is not contactable by this deadline (as defined in section 2.3 of this agreement,) then they agree that their order will be void, and they shall be liable for any costs incurred as a result of refunding of the order or the sourcing of replacement tickets. The Selling Member agrees to dispatch the tickets as ordered by the applicable buyer. In the event that incorrect tickets are dispatched in error, we must be informed within 48 hours of dispatch in order to attempt a resolution. We are unable to deal with mistakes or errors notified to us after 48 hours of the date of dispatch. If the Selling Member fails to deliver tickets to the applicable Buyer in good time prior to the event date (whether due to its own default, act or omission or the default, act or omission of any third party, including without limitation any third party delivery company) it shall be liable to the Buyer and shall refund the Buyer (via Us) the price paid for the Buyer for such tickets plus and additional fifty per cent (50%). The Selling Member agrees that should they choose to dispatch tickets on an order where the status is set to ‘dropped’, or which they have been notified as being ‘dropped’, we shall in no way be liable for return of those tickets or any costs incurred from purchase or dispatch of these tickets.

5.2 Customer Loyalty. The Selling Member agrees to "blind drop ship" all tickets to Buyers and in doing so will not include any invoice, letterhead, business cards or materials other than those specifically instructed by GET ME IN! to provide.

5.3 Organised Records. The Selling Member agrees to maintain organised records and receipts of all delivery slips and tracking numbers from Royal Mail, UPS, FedEx, or the selected delivery service. Where required, all relevant tracking information must be entered into the “My account” section of the Website. Failure to do so may result in the order being cancelled and replacement tickets being purchased at the Selling Member's expense.

5.4 System Update on Delivery. When the Selling Member dispatches tickets to the Buyer, the Selling Member agrees to follow all steps outlined on the Website including entering accurate tracking number information. Please note that in the case of dispatch via UPS it is the Selling Member’s responsibility to ensure that the airway bill is scanned by UPS on pickup. If you wish to dispatch by Royal Mail Special Delivery, please ensure you have contacted the Seller Support team to complete the order by confirming the dispatch and tracking number. Please note that failure to complete the order can result in delayed payment. If an amendment to the chosen delivery method is required, the Selling Member agrees to contact Seller Support for authorisation of any change prior to dispatch. GET ME IN! shall not be held liable for any costs incurred where delivery changes have not been authorised, or where tracking numbers have not been correctly provided.

5.5 Missed Pickup. The Selling Member agrees to cooperate with GET ME IN! delivery processes. If a pickup is scheduled and confirmed with the Selling Member, and the Selling Member is unavailable at the scheduled time, resulting in a pickup cancellation or re-booking, the Selling Member may be charged Missed Pickup fees.

6.1 Payment to Sellers. GET ME IN! will make payment to Selling Members once tickets have been received by Buyers AND the applicable event to which the tickets relate has taken place. This is necessary to provide a safe and trusted marketplace. GET ME IN! endeavours to make payments to Sellers 7 to 10 working days after the event but in some cases may take up to one calendar month after the event to which the applicable tickets relate has taken place.

7.1 Replacement Fees. Replacement Fees. You will be charged a replacement fee by GET ME IN! if a Buyer accepts your offer for sale and those exact tickets are not available or are not delivered to the Buyer. The replacement fee will depend on how much it costs us to purchase comparable or better replacement tickets for the Buyer and can be significantly higher than your original listing price.

7.2 Refunds. In the event of (i) a non-delivery of a ticket, and where in such circumstances GET ME IN! is unable to purchase or supply replacement tickets on behalf of the Selling Member; or (ii) the tickets delivered to a Buyer are not those which were advertised for sale by the Selling Member on the Website, the Buyer is entitled to a full refund of their entire purchase at GET ME IN! (including GET ME IN! fees and delivery charges) as well as an additional 50% credit towards a future purchase. This refund and credit will be at the expense of the Selling Member. If the Selling Member fails to deliver tickets to a Buyer and GET ME IN! sources replacement tickets which are subsequently deemed (in the reasonable opinion of GET ME IN!) not equal to or better than those which were originally intended to be supplied by the Selling Member, the Buyer may be entitled to a full refund of their entire purchase at GET ME IN! (including GET ME IN! fees and delivery charges) as well as an additional 50% credit towards a future purchase. This refund and credit will again be at the expense of the Selling Member.

We agree that, where the Selling Member fails to deliver or provide tickets to a Buyer, to use all reasonable endeavours to source tickets that are (in GET ME IN!’s reasonable opinion) equal to or better than those which were originally intended to be supplied by the Selling Member. The Selling Member shall however, be liable where a Buyer is not satisfied that substitute tickets (whether supplied by the Selling Member or sourced by GET ME IN! from an alternative supplier) are equal to or better than those which were originally intended to be supplied by the Selling Member.

7.3 Payment. In circumstances described in 3.6, 7.1 and 7.2, the Selling Member agrees that any amount payable by it pursuant to Clause 3.6, 7.1 and 7.2 together with a £10 administration fee (charged at GET ME IN’s discretion) may be debited by GET ME IN! from the credit or debit card on file. This may be deducted from outstanding payments, or recovered through other means also at GET ME IN's discretion.

7.4 Credit or Debit Card. The Selling Member agrees to provide a valid credit or debit card which will be kept on file by GET ME IN!. This credit or debit card information is held should GET ME IN! need to charge the replacement and/or failed delivery fee pursuant to Clause 7.1 and 7.2.

Hi I have sent you through the seller some FAQ answers:-

Can I remove my tickets if I sell them elsewhere? As long as the tickets haven't already sold, you can remove your listing at any time.

-Log into your GET ME IN! Account and click on My Listing
-Choose Show Details next to the listing you want to edit or remove
-Scroll down to find the Listings Live and and make sure it's un-ticked
-Hit Update and your tickets will now be offline

If you do not receive a confirmation of de-listing email after this then please contact us immediately using the Contact Ustab above as the tickets may still be live on the website.

If you've already had a sale, unfortunately you can't remove them from the website.

Can I cancel this sale? Unfortunately we can’t cancel any sale after the tickets have been purchased, because once a sale is made against a listing, you have entered into a contract to supply those tickets. Just as we protect you by not allowing the buyer to cancel, in turn we have to protect the buyer by making sure they get what they pay for.

I can no longer supply the tickets I have sold and the event is more than 7 days away?

If you can’t supply tickets that you have sold and the event is more than 7 days away, please let our seller support team at *****@******.*** and we'll be happy to help. Please be sure to include your name and the specific order reference number that you can't supply.

Alex Watts :

How long after they had been sold were the second set sold?


Sorry, I had one pair of tickets that I listed on both sites, unfortunately they were sold on Viagogo on Saturday 23rd August, but before I could take my tickets of "getmein! (AKA Ticketmaster), they also sold the tickets.................tried to cancel both sales but neither organisation would let me - both threatened me with the charges as outlined in their terms.


What I have since done is sold the tickets via Viagogo, but now have to source alternative tickets to fulfil the Getmein order.............this will inevitably cost me!! What would you advise??

Alex Watts :

Yes but when did Getmein sell the tickets?


Hi, I sold through Viagogo on 22nd August, and via GetMeIn on 24th August.

Alex Watts :

Its bad news I am afraid.

Alex Watts :

Clause 2.3 says you must be reachable.

Alex Watts :

Therefore if you had sold the tickets with the one site then you could have removed the listing from the second.

Alex Watts :

You did not and in effect you gave authority to sell a second pair of tickets which you did not have.

Alex Watts :

This created a contract between the site and the buyer of those tickets.

Alex Watts :

Sadly you have to fulfill that order otherwise it would be breach of contract.

Alex Watts :

This means that the site or the buyer of the tickets could sue you for breach.

Alex Watts :

I am sorry but sadly you should have either only listed on one site at a time or in the alternative made yourself available to remove them when they had sold

Alex Watts :

I have examined the terms and these are your responsibilities.

Alex Watts :

I am sorry if this is not the answer you are looking for and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest

Alex Watts :

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?


No, it is as I expected...............
