I've tickets for various days of the Track Cycling Champs - but I can't get to London for the Wednesday now and need to sell 4 good tickets on - face value - no mark up. Have had a look at the extremely forbidding rules for classifieds section and can't work out where/whether I can post the tickets for sale. Anyone understand the rules better than me?

    imho the classified section doesn't have a category that fits tickets, so on that basis it might be breaking the rules

    you could put them on ebay and use the "all ebay listings" forum to reference it as that says "Selling something on Ebay? list it here."

  • OK thanks. I preferred to sell within the board as I know people here will be interested - but you're probably right ebay is better.

    I would be wary of selling tickets on eBay, I tried to sell some tickets to an event last year that I couldn't attend. Within a few hours of my posting them on eBay they were removed and I was sent a VERY snotty email from eBay informing me that I had broken their terms and conditions.
    It's all to do with stopping ticket touts apparently, the upshot was instead or recouping a small amount of my money they went in the bin, wasn't happy....

    Yeah, I've had that, and then messages from other members saying that eBay won't allow it, but never mind they'd like to help by taking them off my hands, offering about half the value.
    [email protected]@rds - can't imagine who reported my listings to eBay :evil:

    First check if the tickets are transferable - if not and the person you sell them to has a problem, you'd be liable.
