Mencap April Fools & Teenage Cancer Trust Tickets

No primary category set

eBay have announced listing restrictions around two charity events happening in the coming months – Mencap’s April Fool’s comedy event to be held on 1st April and Teenage Cancer Trust annual concerts which will take place between the 21st and 27th March.

Tickets for both events are limited so it will be no surprise if some change hands on eBay. However if you want to sell your tickets you at least 20% of the final sale price must be donated to the charities.

The Teenage Cancer Trust have issued a statement saying:-
“Whilst it is regrettable that individuals choose to profit from the resale of tickets to charitable events, it is a reality today.
We are working with eBay to ensure that all sellers of tickets for Teenage Cancer Trust concerts donate at least 20% of the final sale price to us. eBay will also match the percentage donation made by its sellers. We also ask that other secondary ticket agents enforce a similar policy to that of eBay UK.
Whilst this is a positive development, we would urge individuals not to buy tickets if their only intention is to resell them, so that true fans can purchase tickets through official channels, where prices have been set fairly.”

One and Three day eBay listings will also be prohibited for tickets for these high profile charity events.

One Response

  1. A sound strategy to make it unprofitable to resell something. I’m sure non-charity companies like Autodesk would love to be able to force eBay sellers of their software to forfeit an additional percentage of their sale price to themselves.
