It may seem like just a few dollars here and there, but venue fees and ticket fees add up over time, and can dramatically increase ticket prices. Corporations are making billions of dollars each and every year, charging fees on top of their disclosed prices, hiding them in small print or until the very last minute before purchase. I believe during the seat selection process I will be able to attend an event, but after spending the time looking at the venue and finding the perfect seats, I've cancelled transactions once the hidden fees are applied because the tickets are no longer affordable This is an unfair business practice. Please keep the consumer's best interest in the forefront and require full disclosure of fees upfront.
