I have seasons and use almost half my tickets - which is a lot of games. I understand if you sell too many, they will classify you as a commercial reseller and raise the cost of the seats 30%. When I asked my account manager how many games this amounts to, they wouldn’t disclose.
Anyone know anything about this? I’m sure if I use close to half I’m fine, but I’d love to know the actual criteria.
Few years ago when I became a holder. Asked the initial sales rep the recommended amount to stay under for putting games on the official marketplaces ie: through your Raptors account ie Ticketmaster (as we were expecting, and wasn't sure how many games my Wife would be able to attend in the later half of the season, which got cut short cause of COVID anyway lol.) I stayed under that amount and come renewal my (now) account rep informed me of the 30% commercial hike since it was all tracked. I appealed and also provided some further information on transfer of tickets and all was adjusted back to regular membership cost. I can discuss more in PM if you want. Now I stay off selling through the Raps account/Ticketmaster ie: just friends/fam, few forums like here - especially this year since I can only go to a handful of games due to having a little one now/very few day games.
I always thought they had a problem with people selling on Stub Hub. That they would be cool with using Ticketmaster because they get a cut and advertise it to us as an easy way to sell tickets.
Of course they would prefer an extra 30% plus the percentage on sales. Silly of me to think anything else.
