The face value of a ticket is set by the event organisers. Most don't pay See Tickets anything to sell their tickets, so in order to make money See has to charge a little bit on top. The ticket cost is the face value plus the booking fee. See Tickets have to do this on a per-ticket basis to cover the cost of providing a 7 days a week, 24 hours a day booking service, labour costs, credit card commissions and all the other costs associated with running our business. The actual amount See Tickets charge is negotiated with the venue or promoter for each event.
