OFFERED: 1 x Holiday Will Call Ticket ($650)

Postby freud » Wed Jun 12, 2013 3:24 am

Hi All,

It really bums me out that I won't be able to make it to Burning Man this year after all, but this means I'm selling my Will Call ticket for face value ($650) if anyone is interested. Please email me or send me a PM if you'd like to take the ticket off my hands. We can discuss payment methods, but PayPal will probably work best. Once I have received payment I'll transfer the name on the ticket.

You should just put it in STEP.
I've had ticket offers but unless it's a hard copy somewhere close enough to pick up in person, I wouldn't feel good at all about sending anyone money first, then hopefully gettng a ticket.
Especially an overpriced holiday ticket that is now of no more value than any other ticket.

Holiday tickets are not able to be contributed to STEP.

Speaking personally, I think it was a combination of wanting to ensure that all the tickets in STEP were one price, and also a deterrent to those who might consider buying a holiday ticket simply to hedge their bets against high demand in the main sale, and might be thinking of unloading their holiday sale later. I suspect that at this point, those who bought holiday tickets will probably want to consider eating the difference in ticket price.

A potential sale fell through, so the ticket is still available if someone is interested....

I can't really afford to just write off the difference. Recently unemployed so every cent counts.

I could always provide potential buyers with the ticket info and they can contact Burning Man to confirm that the ticket is legitimate.

Ok, fair enough, by bad...I wasn't aware of that.

I don't really know how to make people comfortable with this sale then, or how it's been done in the past. Any ideas or suggestions will be much appreciated.

Why don't you read the warnings of how to buy tickets and sort of reverse engineer from that?

I've heard that the posted announcements contain all kinds of information for both ticket sellers and seekers. :wink:

Maybe someone who would find it easier to hold you accountable in the event of misfortune would be willing to buy from you--i.e., perhaps someone else from South Africa is looking for a ticket. A local could watch you submit the form that transfers ticket ownership, see your ID, etc. Join these and see if they allow the posting of ticket sales.

Sorry you won't make it this year. And good luck!
