They've made some changes this year:
  • Badges are now fully refundable and exchangeable through our approved reselling platform, Lyte
  • Fan Verification accounts are only required for those purchasing badges during our general on-sale
  • We're expanding our NYCC lottery offerings this year and all of them will only be available to folks with fan verification accounts
  • 4-Day badges are back for our pre-sale only

So I have some experience with Lyte, checked it out for Star Wars Celebration. It's an interesting and mostly fair thing. Basically for a $75 ticket they charge you $14 extra. If you sell one, you get $75 via Paypal once the event date (of the ticket) concludes. How does it affect ebay scalping? Well, for Celebration, which mostly sold out months ago, I found that Ebay was flooded with badges once ReedPop began mailing them. Prices were high, but after a week or so, they dropped a ton. In fact, I put in for passes, and was like 180 in line and within 10 days or less I was close to the front of the queue. I would say the profit for scalping has been greatly reduced.

I think they'll be a 2-week period for markups, as people who are impatient will buy impulsively. However, in the past many of us would wait to see more of the guest list before deciding to off-load them.

If resale is hurt I’ll probably either get a Saturday just to flip in those initial few weeks Greg alluded to or just get nothing at all and buy what I need once I know that I need it. Odds I go more than one day is slim.

I know i've asked this before and i should just ignore it but you have never really given an answer that makes any sense and i just can't wrap my head around why anyone would not only go to something, spend lots of time on it and pay for things they don't enjoy.

Let's end it with this reply and not go off topic. But short answer is I'm a crackhead
