    Gadget Show Live Tickets

    Just sold two Gadget show tickets on ebay for double the amount I paid for them even though they are still available on the gadget show website for the original price! They also sold within the hour! I think it sounds too good to be true, is there a chance the buyer could say the tickets aren't in the envelope? And where do I stand if the buyer claims nothing was in the envelope?

    Huge demand for these tickets, not selling mine!

    I thought the tickets were electronic (sent by email), are you going to print them off and post them?
    I suggest registered/recorded post at the minimum.

    Using tracked delivery and put one of those seals on the envelope which state do not accept if seal is broken?
    Not sure if that adds any more power to you if the buyer complained.

    Definitely.

    eBay will refund their money, and you will be out of pocket with no tickets. That's how it usually works if the buyer is dishonest.

    I know the post office used to do it for documents (maybe they'll do tickets too?) Where you can pay, and they'll effectively sign as a witness for forms/IDs etc. Obviously got to pack it while there though.

    Might be worth checking, if they got one locally.

    Post office do document certification, which is basically a signed witness statement that what you say is in the envelope is in there, ive done it with tickets before and they attach a special certificate thing to the envelope and its send recorded delivery

    Don't think it will be veri-fy that's for identity checking.

    All i can say is the next time you try and go underneath someone to rip them off without even paying for the ticket in the first place then make sure you don’t advertise the fact publically!
