I bought the tickets online, tickets were listed orchestra left, orchestra right and orchestra.
I bought orchestra tickets. What is not stated is that orchestra is any seat from left to right, even though some tickets specify the side.
I called to complain that this was misleading if tickets are listed orch right, orch left and orchestra. The woman in customer service refused to transfer me to the manager despite that I requested that many times. She was fast-talking, pressured speech, and told me I was not listening to her and that just because I don't like what she says I can't speak with a manager.
Please be aware when you are buying the tickets that the presentation of what you are getting may be misleading. Tickets can be listed in different ways and ticket liquidators takes no responsibility, at least the woman I spoke with was no help
Our Response on Tuesday, Feb 19, 2013 at 11:22 AM:
Hello Deborah! Thank you very much for your comments We're very sorry to hear about the trouble and confusion concerning your ticket order.
Briefly, you purchased tickets through us listed as being for the following event:
Event: The Book Of Mormon Feb 15 2013 8:00PM
Venue: Eugene O'Neill Theatre in New York, NY, United States of America
Section: ORCHESTRA Row: J
Specifically, per the listing information, it would appear your seller actually advertised your seats as just being in the row concerned. They didn't actually promise that the seats would be located in the left, right or center section. (Such terms as "Orchestra" or "Mezzanine" do not involve specification as to placement in those sections. Only tickets marked as (eg) "Center Orch" are guaranteed to be in a center section.) So, as a result, the seats you received fit within the listing advertisement posted by your seller.
On that note, we wouldn't be able to force your seller to cancel your purchase because they did provide tickets as promised in Row J. We're nevertheless sorry for the confusion and have reached out to you to offer a nice discount on a new order. Please know, too, you can always give us a call before ordering and we'd be happy to assist you with any questions you might have!

I left specific instructions to leave the tickets in my mail box. Fed Ex left a note on my door stating they tried to deliver the tickets but no one was home. I tried to call ticket liquidator and when I was transfered the next line had a busy signal, I called back and after 45 minutes of waiting online I finally hung up. I have contacted my credit card company to dispute this charge.

Hello Joel! Thank you for submitting feedback the other day via the Ticket Liquidator Feedback Tool. We're very sorry to hear about the trouble and confusion concerning your ticket purchase through us.
That being said, it appears the main issue is that you were not home to receive your tickets and that FedEx was not able to deliver them without a signature. We do indeed encourage the sellers who list tickets on our exchange to require signatures on their ticket package. This is necessitated by the basic fact that tickets are time-sensitive and one-of-a-kind items. Sellers therefore often like to have proof that the tickets were received safe and sound by an identifiable party. Please note, too, that the choice as to whether a package requires a signature is left up to the seller supplying the purchase. This is because the seller is the merchant of record for your transaction and so any accidental misdeliveries would ultimately rebound on the seller. The result is that FedEx would not have been able to leave the tickets at your door even if you had a note on the door itself.
On that note, we're also very sorry that you experienced difficulty trying to reach our offices the other day. We are located in Connecticut and experienced a very bad winter storm out our way leading into the weekend (some 35+ inches of snow). We were short-staffed at some points and our Call Center was also closed down due to the hazardous driving conditions on the road. It's nevertheless true that we would not have been able to access the tickets from FedEx anyway once they were in FedEx's custody.
In this case, we would have been happy to extend you a discount on a new order equal to your purchase total - but, if you already contacted your credit card company, we would not be able to do so, since you've filed a private dispute between you and the seller. Please do keep us informed, though, because, if your credit card company denies your claim, we still may be able to help!

I placed an order for tickets to a Ottowa vs Montreal hockey game. I ordered my tickets on a Friday and the game was that following Wednesday January 30. On the site it says 2 day guarantee for getting the tickets, well my tickets were never shipped out till Monday night. I called and the service rep assured me that I would have me tickets. Tuesday comes around and still no more progress on seeing them. Wednesday morning my tickets were in Memphis. They finally made it two hours away from my house at 1pm Wednesday. The delivery truck had already left and the delivery company stated I would not receive them until the following day Thursday unless I got in my vehicle and drove the two hours each way to get my tickets. So I did because of your policy of no refunds. By the time I got back to my house and got on the road to drive to Ottowa which was another two hour drive it was 5 pm and the game started at 7. I am very unsatisfied with your company. I placed a order on a Friday which gives plenary of time for your two day guarante to be delivered. I should not have at any time had to drive and pick my tickets up. I will never be using your company ever again and I will also tell everyone possible not to use your site. Your service is very poor and is one big joke. It is complete bull that this happend!!!!
Our Response on Monday, Feb 04, 2013 at 3:01 PM:
Hello Matt! Thanks so very much for your leaving feedback via the Ticket Liquidator Feedback Tool. We're very sorry to hear about the trouble and confusion regarding your order through us.
On that note, you ordered tickets for delivery using the FedEx Standard Delivery method, which takes 2 business days for delivery. I believe there was some confusion in regards to the fact that FedEx Standard and FedEx Express only include shipment on the weekdays, not weekends. Your tickets would not have shipped actively on Saturday and Sunday. You also ordered tickets at 8:35 on Friday, January 25 - too late for same-day shipment. The earliest time your seller could have shipped the tickets was therefore on Monday, January 18 - and that's when they shipped them.
In regards to accessing the tickets, it isn't clear why you believe you wouldn't have received the tickets on Wednesday and why FedEx would tell you otherwise. Your tickets were indeed in Memphis on the morning of the event because Memphis is a major distribution hub for FedEx. FedEx then registered your tickets as being in Watertown, NY as early as 12:15pm on the day of the event. They did not register any further delays with us and would have delivered your tickets the same day. Your seller would not have been able to make a FedEx label for shipment if that timetable wasn't guaranteed by FedEx.
As a result, it looks like you proactively decided to pick up the tickets because you wanted to make sure you received them.
Either way, we're sorry for all the confusion and would be happy to send you a check for your delivery fee.
Have fun at the event!

I requested tickets to a Spring Training Game for March 23 in Lakeland. You sent an email related to tickets for March 2 in Tampa. I noted right away that this was incorrect and that I had not reqeusted tickets for March 2 but for March 23. I would note I will not be in Florida at the earlier time so I never would hve requested such tickets. I was referred to the broker and advised them of your error and they have failed to provide any assistance. I have received no assistance from this broker nor from your customer service. I have received no tickets that I might resell on another site or even yours for that matter. I requested compensation under your waraanty since no tickets are being provided. I would note that I checked later and the tickets for the correct date are listed on your web site. Apparently you are not able to accurately process orders as requested based on my experience.
Our Response on Thursday, Jan 24, 2013 at 9:29 PM:
Hello Ronald! Thank you very much for leaving commentary about your purchase through our site. We're very sorry to hear about your unhappiness in regards to your ticket order.
In your case, it seems what happened is that you accidentally placed an order for the wrong date of your intended event - March 2 instead of March 23. The tickets listed for resale on our exchange are all being listed by different ticket sellers throughout the United States and Canada. This means that every listing on our site is linked to a different account. It therefore isn't possible for accounts to cross or otherwise switch during the purchase process. You are frozen into purchasing tickets from a given listing once you access the checkout page.
On that note, the 125% guarantee you reference would not apply to your situation due to the fact that your event is almost 2 months away. The guarantee references situations in which ticket sellers don't deliver tickets prior to an event. Your seller will still be delivering your tickets but just hasn't received them yet from their supplier.
That being said, you did contact us via email and we have offered to assist you by trying to resell your event tickets in return for a discount equal to your current order's total. This will allow you to access new tickets to the event of your choice. We always want to do our very best to help customers.

make sure you read their terms carefully i thought i was buying my tickets from this company then i get a 3rd party telling me i have to give them alot information before they will send my tickets should ve stay with stub hub never again also remove my e mail from your mailing adrerss i do not want to receive any of your stuff from tipster
Our Response on Thursday, Jan 24, 2013 at 10:10 PM:
Hello Joseph! Thank you for your feedback. We're very sorry if there were any confusions concerning our business model. We at TL are indeed a nationwide network through which independent sellers resell tickets to popular events. StubHub is also a marketplace and not a direct seller of event tickets. The difference is that we at TL let you know the identity of your seller while StubHub covers up their identity. We believe that it is better for the customer to know their seller's information and be able to reach them directly with various order concerns.
In regards to your comments, it seems you were concerned because your seller sent you a form asking for more information before they processed your order. It is indeed true that ticket sellers occasionally ask customers to clarify their identity in order to make sure that your ticket order is legitimate and that some random third party is not trying to use your credit card without your permission. Sellers may require authorizations based on the size of a ticket order (more expensive orders tend to result in higher security on the seller’s end) or because there was an incongruity between your credit card information and the billing address you provided during your order.
Either way, you are not obliged to supply any such information if you don't feel comfortable doing so. You just let us know if you have any concerns in that regard.

My game was cancelled. I called to inquire about a refund, was on hold for over an hour, only to be told that I have to send an email. I sent the email, but I haven't received a reply. I am now on hold again for what has been an hour and a half. It is so hard to get in touch with an actual person and even harder to get an issue resolved once you do. I will not be using TicketLiquidator anymore due to the poor customer service.
Our Response on Thursday, Jan 24, 2013 at 10:31 PM:
Hello Sharon! Thank you for your feedback about your ticket order. We're sorry for your unhappiness about the refund for your order.
Just to explain, you ordered tickets for a hockey event this past Fall when the NHL went into lockout mode over a pay dispute between the NHL and the hockey players. The event for which you purchased tickets was scheduled for mid-January. The lockout was maintained up through January 14 and only officially ended on that date.
On that note, it appears you called in a few times in December trying to cancel your order when the lockout issue had not been decided and when your event was still scheduled as planned. Your seller would not be expected to refund you for an event that was still registered as taking place.
When your game was cancelled in January, your seller processed the refund for you less than two business days later (January 15). You should have the refund in your account now.

Ijust purchased tickets for Jersey Boys at the Fisher Theater. your "service fee" should have been noted early on in the total pricing.
The "service fee" was an insult to my intelligence. If needed it should be built into the priceof the ticket. Additionally I see you are also making money on your shipping cost.
Never again. Although I may have no choice if the Fisher has a contract with you....
Our Response on Thursday, Jan 24, 2013 at 10:56 PM:
Hello Patrick! Thank you for your commentary! We're sorry for your unhappiness with the service fee. The service fee is actually the only thing that we at TL make off your ticket order. The mark-up in ticket price accrues to the seller and the delivery fee accrues to the seller and the software company that provides our point-of-sale software. The service fee itself is equal to 18.5% of the total ticket price and is advertised twice during checkout before completing an order. We also mention the service fee in the "Lowdown" section above every event listing on our exchange.
As a result, the service fee isn't a hidden charge and is calculated for buyers long before they even have to enter any billing or address information. We're nevertheless sorry that you were unaware of the charge and only noticed it after-the-fact.

Called and spoke with sales person. Explained that I was 6'6" tall and needed to have an asile seat. I was assured that I was getting what I requested. That is not what I received. I paid double the face value which is not a problem when I get what I pay for. So 4 tickets was over $1200 and I was uncomfortable that I stood in the back for a good part of the show. Will not use or recommend your service.
Our Response on Thursday, Dec 27, 2012 at 3:27 PM:
Hello Stephen! Thank you so much for taking the time to leave feedback via our tool. We're very sorry to hear about the trouble and confusion in regards to your ticket order.
Briefly, we see that your tickets through us were listed by the seller as the following:
Event: Jersey Boys Dec 15 2012 2:00PM
Venue: Virginia/August Wilson Theatre - NY in New York, NY, United States of America
Section: ORCHESTRA Row: D
Price: $252.00 Each Quantity: 4
Seller's Note: These seats are on the aisle with purchase of the entire group.
Per the listing information, the ticket seller noted that, if you purchased all of the tickets remaining in the group, you would have received an aisle seat along with your order. It appears that there were only 4 tickets available in the tickets group and thus you should have received an aisle seat - yet you are claiming the opposite. We will get in touch with the ticket seller on this issue and make sure you are compensated for the tickets you received.
For anyone else reading, we recommend that you look at your event tickets the moment you receive them to make sure that you received exactly what you ordered. We're here to help - so please do let us know if you have any questions or uncertainties about the tickets you receive from your seller.

I m very decepointed with my experience with Ticket Liquidator , This is my first and last time using TL. I purchased a ticket for me to take my nice to Lady Gaga I paid 164.00 +30.34 plus shipment x 2 =403.00 for a ticket with a face value of 85.00 +14.00 fee. This is outrageous !!! How can they charge this much for the tickets. i will file a complaint with Better Business Bureau, this is like stealing from customer. I found this page thru my employer's associate benefits . I will also file a complaint with them and ask them to remove from the website . I m sure they don't know how TL do business.
Our Response on Wednesday, Nov 28, 2012 at 2:15 PM:
Hello Paula! Thank you for your feedback. We're very sorry to hear about your unhappiness with the price of your event tickets. We at TL do indeed partner with various companies that provide corporate perks to their employees. It appears you may have misunderstood the nature of our business model when you purchased tickets through our website. We at TL are not a primary source for tickets but rather an independent marketplace through which respected and trusted ticket-selling companies resell tickets to popular events. The tickets listed on our website are all owned and priced by hundreds of different ticket sellers who decide ticket value based on what they think tickets are worth on the open market.
Generally speaking, the tickets you find on resale networks can end up being priced at, below, or above face value - with only some 60% of tickets being marked up from their original price. The mark-up (or mark-down) on tickets will depend on how much it costs the individual seller to access the tickets and on the popularity of the event. You purchased tickets for Lady Gaga - a very, very, VERY popular event for which it's very hard to find tickets - and so it's very likely that the tickets you purchased would have been marked up from their face value by the seller.
On that note, we can understand your frustration with the price increase - but please also know that, without the resale market, you likely never would have been able to get Lady Gaga tickets for your niece. Lady Gaga tickets sell out so quickly on the primary market that many die-hard fans of Lady G. are typically unable to get the chance (or even a glimmer of a chance) to see her in concert. We at TL (and the resale market in general) help to keep event tickets on the market longer than they'd normally be available so people like you can give such a special present to your niece.
We hope that helps to provide some context for the upcharge. :-)

Hurricane Sandy made it impossible for my party of 8 to use our Army-Airforce tickets due to no electricity, no water, no heat on our northwest NJ area. However the 125% guarantee doesn't cover acts of nature as long as the game goes on. To heck with the safety of getting there!!! Therefore I not only am losing money daily because of this disaster, Ticket Liquidator chooses to flush
Ianother $500.00 out of my pocket, with their sympathies of course!!!
Our Response on Wednesday, Nov 07, 2012 at 5:55 PM:
Hello Linda! Thank you very much for your email. We're so very sorry to hear about the difficulties you have experienced in regards to the hurricane that recently hit the East Coast. Hurricane Sandy caused a great deal of hardship for a lot people. We at TL are located in Connecticut and our friends and family suffered along with everyone else. We have attempted to assist customers impacted by the hurricane as best as we possibly can.
In your case, you were unable to attend the event for which you purchased tickets due to travel difficulties. The event was scheduled for 11/3 and the hurricane hit on 10/29.. Your ticket seller would not have been able to access a refund from the venue because the event promoter decided to proceed with the event as-is. The fact that you did not purchase event insurance when you placed your order also means that you were unable to use that avenue for pursuing a refund.
In your situation, we at TL have tried our best to help by offering you a large discount off any new purchase through our website. The discount is equal to roughly half of your order total. This discount comes at a complete loss to ourselves. We made less than $80 off your initial order and are offering a discount $180 more than the money we made. We would lose money on any subsequent order you place. We're certainly willing to do that to try and assist you.
On another issue, the 125% guarantee you reference is a guarantee that applies to orders that aren't delivered due to laxity on the part of the ticket seller supplying the purchase. The guarantee does not apply to natural events. A ticket seller would not be responsible for a hurricane and so it wouldn't be fair for us to penalize them monetarily for that.
Despite the trouble, we sincerely hope that the discount offer assists you and that you and your family will be able to take advantage of it when life calms down a bit!
