TickPick is a no fee ticket reseller that sometimes has great deals but doesn't have the same volume as other no fee sellers such as SeatGeek. TickPick also has a unique aspect to its platform that allows you to bid on prices instead of just paying the standard listed rate. Our Recommendation: Although TickPick is trustworthy, if you're looking to get the best seats or the best price then we strongly recommend using SeatGeek because it tends to have much lower prices and a better selection of tickets and events.
- Unique bidding process means that you might be able to score a better deal than on other platforms
- No fees for buyers is a unique selling point because most resellers have significant fees
- Not as much web traffic as some of the higher profile ticket resellers
- Sometimes there are long delays before you actually receive your ticket
My Experience with TickPick
One of the first things you'll see on TickPick's website is “Every Ticket, No Hidden Fees.” I love the sound of that. As someone who buys and sells tickets frequently, I know the value in no hidden fees. Ticket sites left and right seem to keep their fees hidden, and I just don't like doing business with those kinds of people.
From the get-go, TickPick looks trustworthy. They showcase the fact that they have been featured by some big names like CNN, Forbes, Yahoo! Finance, and others. This did instantly make me want to trust them a little more than some of their competitors. As I scrolled down the page, I saw a number of familiar names and faces. The first row of images I saw were those of bands playing near me soon. Some of these bands were bigger names while some were groups I had never heard of. I personally like being able to discover new events and new artists I might enjoy while browsing for tickets. It helps keep me in the loop.
I decided to take TickPick up on one of these local offers and go see a show nearby that I didn't know about until I visited the website. This particular show was not just one show but a small festival taking place not too far away. The tickets were priced right at $100 for the entire day as General Admission which I thought sounded good at first. However, upon further investigation, I found that the two-day passes were selling for $96 on the official website, and the one-day passes were only $65. There may be no hidden fees, but the starting fees were just too high to even consider.
Since I ruled out buying those particular tickets from TickPick, I decided I would check out a larger event where the tickets would be rarer in which maybe I could justify a little extra on the price tag. I wasn't sure who was touring, so I aimed to browse the site. The first few recommended artists TickPick suggested from the drop-down menu of their website weren't touring. There were no shows to buy tickets for.
I decided to take a look at the trending artists. This is where I found exactly what I was looking for. I chose to look at Florida Georgia Line, and the first tickets available were for the IHeartRadio Music Festival. The tickets were even at a wonderful price. There was a slight catch, as when I went to actually put tickets in my cart, I couldn't buy just one. I had to purchase 2+ tickets.
I was surprised that TickPick really stuck to their “no hidden fee” policy. What I saw while browsing is the exact price I got when I went to check out. On top of that, I didn't necessarily have to pay for my tickets right then and there. With ordering far enough out, I could choose to make payments through “affirm,” a monthly payment service. I would have to qualify, and the interest rate is more than I'm comfortable with, but it is a nice option that I don't see too often.
Though the options for tickets are good, I can't have them when TickPick says I can have them. I have to wait for the confirmation of the third-party seller. Luckily, they don't charge my card until the seller does confirm. For no extra cost, I can get instant e-mail deilvery which is perfect for a last-minute event.
I would likely use TickPick again. Letting me know upfront how much I'm going to pay is one way to get me to stick around.
