Lysted's fee structure is variable depending on sales volume and where your tickets sell.

We provide volume discounts for large sellers ($500k / $1m / $2m / $4m / $8m / $12m / $20m+ annually). This article will detail our base rates, prior to any volume discounts.

On average, you'll pay around 11% of the "list price", including our fee and the selling marketplace fee (before volume discounts).

Lysted's Fee

The fee that Lysted charges is 8% of the total sale. Total sale can be defined as the amount that is paid to us by the selling marketplace. If the Full Service team of pricing professionals are managing your listings, the fee would go up by 3%. There is no additional fee if you choose to use UpTick for your pricing. UpTick is an automated pricing software, which will price your listings based on rules you've set and live market data.

Marketplace Fee

Our fee is separate from and in addition to the fee that each marketplace charges. Our rates with most marketplaces are discounted in comparison to the public or average ticket broker. For example, Seatgeek would normally charge you 10% if you created an account with them directly to sell tickets. Seatgeek only charges us 3%. So even after our 8% fee you’re still paying about the same.

Mark Ups

We mark-up prices to some exchanges to cover a portion of their fee. The idea being, why would you sell a ticket on Ticket Network at a 8% fee when you can sell that same ticket on Tickpick at a 0% fee. We mark up prices to Ticket Network by 5.5%. This is an overall price increase on all tickets that go to that website. The price increase goes directly into your pocket so effectively their fee goes from 8% to 2.5%.

The calculation for payouts is as follows

[(Price + Mark Up) - Marketplace Fee] - Lysted Fee = Total Payout

The chart below will detail our fee, the marketplace fee and default markup for each website we sell on.

If you are pricing your tickets manually or through UpTick, the fee for each sale will be between 7-13% depending on which website your tickets sell on. If you use the Full Service Pricing team, it will range from 10-16%.

Here are some examples of how the math breaks down if you listed a ticket for $100 and it sells on various websites:

  • Ticketmaster charges 2%, and we do not mark up prices to their website

    • If that $100 ticket sold on Ticketmaster, they would take a 2% fee and pay us $98. We would then take our 8% fee from $98 and you would be paid $90.16

($100 - 2%) = $98

($98 - 8%) = $90.16

  • Vivid Charges 9%, and we mark up prices to their website by 4%

    • When you price your ticket at $100 in Lysted, it posts to Vivids website and sells at $104.

    • Vivid takes their 9% fee from $104 and pays us $94.64.

    • We take our 8% fee from $94.64 and pay you $87.07

($104 - 9%) = $94.64

  • Seatgeek charges us a 3% fee, and we do not mark up prices to their website

    • You list your tickets at $100, it goes to Seatgeeks site and sells at $100

    • Seatgeek takes their 3% fee and pays us $97

    • We take our 8% fee from $97 and you’re paid $89.24

  • Ticket Network works the same, you can see here that although Ticket Network charges a much higher fee, your payout is very similar to Seatgeek and Ticketmaster due to the increased mark up.

We provide volume discounts to large sellers.

The first volume discount kicks in at a half a million in yearly sales. If you are able to achieve half a million in sales during a 12 month period, you’ll receive a 1% discount off the base rates. One million in sales will result in a 2% discount off the base rates, two million in sales will earn you a 3% discount, and over four million in sales will earn you a 4% discount.


These are our current rates as of 1/1/24. Each exchange reserves the right to adjust our rates at their sole discretion. Markups are also subject to change. For the most up to date detailed rate sheet please follow the link below.
