    Anybody done it?

    My brother has some concert tickets to sell and he asked about StubHub. Does it work as well for sellers as it does for buyers?

    I've done it. Works OK when your tickets sell. They have you print out FedEx labels to ship your tickets (StubHub pays for the shipping).

    How big of a cut does StubHub take?

    15 percent. You get your check about 2 weeks after you ship the tickets.

    If you make a profit you better claim it on your tax return. I know a guy who got pinched and had to pay a huge penalty because he did not claim.

    What are the tix for, maybe someone on here would buy them and he gets all the profit?

    I've had success with StubHub. The 15 percent for them is a pretty fat cut, but it's much more reliable than ebay.
