Kijiji Strikes Deal with StubHub to Sell Live-event Tickets
Kijiji has struck a deal with StubHub, the a market for live-event tickets.
StubHub launched in 2000 and has become the most popular site in North America for the resale of tickets to live events. It will now provide access to their ticket catalog on online classified service Kijiji.
“We know Canadians love to use Kijiji because over 40% of the Canadian internet population goes there at least once a month,” says Anthony Lipschitz, Country Lead of StubHub Canada. “Now Kijiji users who want to buy or sell tickets to tens of thousands of sports, concert, theatre and other live entertainment events will have all the benefits of StubHub’s unique online marketplace—a trusted, secure, safe place to buy or sell tickets, backed by our FanProtect Guarantee.”
“StubHub is a platform for fans that helps them discover and access what they want to do this weekend. With the StubHub FanProtect Guarantee, fans are protected from that awful experience of buying a ticket from a stranger outside an event because you couldn’t get one anywhere else and then being turned away at the door because there’s something wrong with the ticket,” added Lipschitz. “Offering that same peace of mind to Kijiji users is good for everyone.”
