Why Ticket Re-seller Always Get Concert ticket in Japan?
Why so hard for you to buy ticket in Japan? how reseller get ticket??
It is hard to win the ticket in Japan. Some hard-to-get tickets are called "platinum" ticket.
Many re-sellers get the tickets and put on the resale market for 200 - 700% or even higher price of the original price. Platinum tickets are categorized for the ticket on the market at more or less from 500%- 700% or higher range of the original price. It is simply crazy.
How RE-SELLER get tickets?
Well, how do the resellers get the tickets? The reseller never tells you. It is a secret of them.
Yet, what we are aware of is that the reseller for sure is the fanclub member (to be able to apply for a special deal) and the reseller does it as a "profession".
By the "profession", we mean that the reseller hires many other people. The reseller organizes its own people to be so many fanclubs and let them apply.
It is not strange that one reseller has 10-20 memberships for one fanclub. This simply means 10-20 times as probable to win the ticket.
For many famous bands/singers, even a normal person (who is not a reseller) has 2-3 memberships. So they increase the chance of winning. If you have one single fanclub membership, still the chance is quite small for big concerts of big celebrity.
Some customers of ours are not even the member of the fanclub. Then the winning chance shall be small for the normal way (well our customers via our service win a lot for some reasons. But we think that it is not that we help them but it is only a matter of luck of the custmers).
This is why you can not get the ticket easily. To be honest, if you are not the fanclub member, your chance is basically quite low. Most of the good tickets are gone for the fanclub members before you can apply. [This is why you need to be a fanclub member!]
How could you win the war against the reseller who has 10 or more fanclub memberships to the same singer, if you do not even have one single fanclub membership.
