I was on the verge of buying 4 concert tickets today, but abandoned my shopping cart when I saw how outrageous the “convenience fee” is for this online transaction.
For a single purchase transaction of 4 tickets at $68.00 each, the ticket processing service will impose a $38 fee ($9.50 a ticket). Relative to value delivered, a 14% “tax” on each ticket is way out of proportion.
So the Early Music Guild and Seattle Baroque Orchestra lost out on 4 concert patrons, because their ticket processing service is too greedy (STG).
Too bad: it might have been a great performance.
