Seatwave

Seatwave is a UK-based fan-to-fan ticket marketplace, where fans can buy and sell tickets for concerts, theatre, sports and other live events.

Sellers list tickets for free, only giving Seatwave a portion of the sale price when the ticket is sold. Buyers pay for tickets through the Seatwave site, guaranteeing secure payment and the timely arrival of tickets. Seatwave launched its iOS SDK in December 2011.

The company was founded by Joe Cohen, formerly of Match.com and Ticketmaster, in May 2006 and began online trading in February 2007.

Seatwave offers a marketplace for buyers and sellers looking to bid on pre-purchased tickets. For sellers, listing available tickets are free and Seatwave only takes a fee from the purchase price for a sold ticket. For buyers, payment is handled through Seatwave’s website and the site guarantees timely arrival of tickets. A quick perusal of tickets being auctioned on the site indicate a majority of the offerings are for events in the United Kingdom.
