THE CLIENT

Tix City offers tickets for thousands of sporting events, family shows, concerts and theater events throughout the country. Founded in 1999, Tix City has grown from a part-time operation into one of the leading marketplaces in the ticket industry.

THE challenge

With the purpose of increasing cross-selling opportunities for Rutgers University football team, Tix City looked into creating a marketplace site where fans could buy and sell tickets. As a Fan Exchange Marketplace, users establish the ticket prices, while Tix City provides the FedEx shipping. DDC DS was chosen to build the Rutgers Fan Exchange website with FedEx API integration.

One of the greatest challenges was to reflect changes in the price set by sellers immediately, on every stage of the buying process.

Project goals

The project goal was to create a user-friendly interface to boost trade between sellers and buyers from the first day of the launch without any hassle.

DDC DS created a marketplace with a customized personal account, interactive seat maps, event search options, multiple ticket delivery options, acceptance of PayPal payments, responsive designs, real-time inventory, and other exciting features.
