Three things you should know before giving sporting or concert tickets as gifts

By DANIEL VASQUEZ
Sun Sentinel

Published: Monday, Dec. 12, 2011 – 3:09 am

Who wouldn’t want tickets to see their favorite major league team or the next Shakira concert stuffed into their holiday stocking or given as a holiday gift?

But there could be problems. For instance, if you use your credit card to buy the tickets, your gift recipient might not be able to claim them at the venue without you there to show ID and the credit card used to purchase them. Bummer.

“Tickets make great gifts this time of year,” said Christopher Grimm, spokesperson for the National Consumers League. “But consumers need to watch closely and make sure they know exactly what they are purchasing and from whom.”

The League offers these tips:

Go with reliable retailers: Forget Dan’s Tickets and Tupperware Extravaganza shop if you’ve never used the company before. Check a seller’s rating before you buy, with the Better Business Bureau or via consumer review sites such as at Yelp! Also find out whether the seller is a member of the National Association of Ticket Brokers.

Check guarantees: Vendor guarantees vary. Websites like Stub Hub and TicketsNow guarantee every ticket sold on their sites and will replace them or provide refunds to consumers if their tickets are invalid or the artist cancels. Craigslist and other ticket-selling sites do not have similar guarantees.

Read the fine print: Even if you bought the ticket, you may not be able to transfer it to someone else. Some concerts and sporting venues sell restricted tickets, such as Ticketmaster. They require buyers to present purchasing credit card and a valid ID at the venue. With such events, you typically are not given a ticket beforehand or the ticket you print out is worthless without ID from the purchaser.

The eBay Blacklist

The eBay business can be most likened to an online flea market. But, as with most flea markets, there is always the possibility that questionable hawkers lurk around the corners. Therefore, there must be rules in place to insure that the auctions and transactions formed through eBay are safe and legal. Only then can a market – online or not – flourish.

Certain types of items are prohibited or regulated on eBay. eBay reserves the right to terminate auctions that violate its specifications for allowed items on listings. In the case of a violation, eBay emails the bidder and the seller to notify them of the violation and to explain the need to terminate the auction.

There are many eBay guidelines in-place that describe items that may not be posted for auction. They fall under three main categories: Prohibited, Questionable and Potentially Infringing.

Prohibited

This describes items that are not permitted on eBay. This list includes alcohol, tobacco, drugs, animals, human parts or remains, government properties, lottery tickets, and others. eBay contains a complete list of such in their policy statement.

Questionable

Items listed as questionable can be posted provided they follow certain conditions. For example, some adult material may be listed for auctioning only if they are posted in the Mature Audiences section of eBay. Event tickets may be sold provided that the auction closes before the actual event itself. The list also includes batteries, artifacts, food, used items, event tickets, weapons and knives, police related equipment, Freon, hazardous chemicals, offensive material, mature audiences material, international selling, and international buying among others.

Potentially Infringing

Items listed under this heading may be legal. However, they almost always violate copyright, trademark, and other rights. Some examples of Potentially Infringing items are: academic software, beta software, bootleg recordings, contracts and tickets, downloadable media, movie prints, OEM software, Replica and counterfeit items, and unauthorized copies.

The eBay list of problem items is updated periodically and is incorporated into the User Agreement of eBay. These guidelines do not represent legal advice. It would do well to check with law enforcement agencies, a lawyer, or other legal outlets to verify the legality of a questionable item to be posted.

This policy applies even if you offer to give your item away for free. As long as it is posted on eBay, it is subject to the above policy.

As a final note, it is stressed that a eBay buyer is subject to liability if he or she purchases an illegal item. It is still the responsibility of the buyers and sellers to monitor the legality of their transactions since eBay is merely a facilitator in the market process.
