The creation of ticketing expert Scott Daniel, Fanprice was further developed and born into reality by engineer and software developer, Jaseem Masood and (at the time) consultant, Eli Barntsen, who respected the concept and unique business model and quickly signed on as director of Business Development.
“After talking with hundreds of ticket brokers, online ticket resellers and fans, we learned that most ticket holders would be happy to sell the tickets to a fan at a price they are willing to pay,” states Scott Daniel, President and co-founder of Fanprice. “Until now the market hasn’t allowed for the Fanprice type of ticket pricing structure, which has left fans frustrated.”
Fanprice reverses the business model of traditional secondary ticket merchants, by creating a fair market exchange between buyer and seller, in turn developing a community that perpetuates parity in the marketplace. Designed for anyone who is interested in buying or selling tickets, Fanprice.com has an extensive range of tickets for all professional sporting events, concerts, theater and special events with no transaction fee for the buyer.
Advocates of promoting and supporting the underground and unsigned artists, Fanprice has created an exclusive feature to enhance the visibility and increase the revenue of the unsigned, the Featured Artist Program. Fanprice not only showcases this talent pool on their home page and other viral hot spots, but also provides them with a platform for additional exposure and the distinctive ability to get show tickets in the hands of their loyal and new fans without the standard transaction fee.
“Fanprice has created a unique experience, linking fans and sellers in a truly fair market ecosystem,” states Jaseem Masood, Co-Founder and CEO of Fanprice, Inc. “We felt it was about time the fan has a say in how much they want to pay for tickets and we’re happy to bring our distinctive service to the public.”
With its detailed venue maps, secure environment and simple four-step process, buyers and sellers can start purchasing and exchanging tickets with ease. For ticket buyers and sellers it all starts with visiting Fanprice.com. The buyer’s selects event or venue, chooses seat section, sets offer price and expiration of offer then enters payment information.
