Once the event has taken place, we process your payment. It takes approximately 10 working days for the credit to reach your account.

How much does Seatwave charge for selling tickets?
It is free to list your tickets for sale on Seatwave. A 10% success fee, excluding VAT, will be deducted after your tickets sell.
How do I sell my tickets until the day of the event?
You are able to list until the day of the event using our collectrom service. To use this service you must send them into Seatwave. Buyers can then collect their ticket from a Seatwave collection point on the day of the event.
To list tickets for a collectfrom event, make sure you select the collectfrom option, or upgrade one of your eligible existing listings within My Account.
Send us your tickets via UPS (it's free!) by booking a collection or drop-off in My Account. Once we receive your tickets, your listing will go live. And the hard work, if we could even call it that, is done. Sit back and relax while your tickets sell.
What is reducing price?
Ticket prices usually go down as an event approaches, by choosing Reducing price, you won’t have to manually change your price yourself. We’ll begin gradually reducing your sale price from the Start reducing price date you set.
To help keep your ticket price competitive and give them more of a chance to sell, we lower the price incrementally every day until your tickets sell or your minimum price is reached on the sale end date. You can keep track of the current sale price by logging into My Account to track the sales price, click the link “View history” within your account.
