Welcome to FanLyst! By accessing or using our website (the 'Site'), our mobile applications and associated services (collectively, the 'Services'), you agree to be bound by this FanLyst User Agreement.
1. Using Fanlyst
FanLyst is a listing service that automatically posts your tickets on multiple second-market ticket marketplace sites. FanLyst does not own the tickets you list with us but simply acts as a medium allowing you to reach more buyers. Tickets are listed by and through FanLyst's accounts with each online ticket marketplace site on your behalf.
Listing tickets through FanLyst is free. When your ticket sells on any one of our Partner Sites, you will charged only 10% of the gross sale price of your ticket(s); that 10% includes the selling commission due to the site on which your tickets sold, and there are no additional charges or fees. You will be paid 90% of the gross sale of your tickets, as calculated for you on the Review page in the listing process as well as in your personal dashboard when logged in to your FanLyst account. Payments are made exclusively via PayPal and issued within fifteen (15) business days after the date of which your ticket(s) sell, i.e. the sale date.
By listing your ticket(s) with and transferring your ticket(s) to FanLyst, you authorize FanLyst to list and sell your tickets on your behalf and according to the listing price you assign to said ticket(s). If you elect to utilize FanLyst’s auto-pricing feature, you expressly provide FanLyst the authority to set and later modify all such tickets affected by the auto-pricing formula you create at the times, by the frequency and amounts and/or percentages set forth in said formula; FanLyst shall bear no responsibility for pricing and/or sale consequences so long as they adhere to the auto-pricing formula which you create. FanLyst reserves all rights to amend its pricing, if at all, relative to auto-pricing or any other functionality on our platform and users’ access thereto without notice. Under no circumstances may you list speculative tickets (tickets you do not currently have in your possession) and all tickets listed through FanLyst must be owned by the individual listing said ticket(s). Your ticket will be active and available for sale until you either remove it from the FanLyst site or it sells on one of our Partner Sites, subject to the terms stated herein. Price changes to and sales and removals of tickets implemented through the FanLyst platform are not guaranteed to take effect and be reflected on our Partner Sites for up to 10 minutes. By listing your ticket(s) through FanLyst, you agree not to list or otherwise make your tickets available for purchase elsewhere, and agree to be held responsible for the reasonable costs associated failing to comply with this agreement. FanLyst reserves the right to refuse to list ticket(s) without cause: FanLyst also expressly reserves the right not to list your tickets, if mobile in format, until they are transferred to FanLyst in accordance with the terms outlined otherwise in this Agreement. Upon the sale of your tickets on selling site, FanLyst will email you to confirm your sale and indicate which Partner Site sold your tickets. You hereby agree to be responsible for any consequences and damages resulting from your failure to deliver valid tickets corresponding to your ticket listing details. By listing tickets through FanLyst, you represent that you are at least 18 years old and have the legal capacity to contract as necessary to facilitate, execute and validate a sale of your ticket(s).
Transferring Mobile Tickets
Listings containing tickets which are mobile in format will not be activated by FanLyst unless and until all ticket(s) in said listing are transferred from the Seller to FanLyst. The term "activated" means broadcasted to any or all of our Partner Sites and made available for purchase on any such sites.
To comply with the above, mobile tickets must be transferred to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mobile ticket accounts permit you to recall unsold listings. However, if Seller recalls any mobile ticket(s) prior to deleting an listing, FanLyst will deactivate said listing in its entirety from all our Partner Sites.
Failure to complete the transfer of your mobile tickets may result in delayed or forfeited payment for the sale, penalty fees and/or a lifetime ban.
Fraudulent or defective tickets
Fraudulent tickets are strictly prohibited from being listed through FanLyst without exception. As such, anyone listing tickets through FanLyst represents that the information presented as ticket details are accurate relative to an actual ticket they own. In the event that a ticket is found to be fraudulent or defective in any way such that the buyer of that ticket is prevented from gaining access to an event for which the corresponding ticket was purchased due to the defect in said ticket, FanLyst will charge you an amount equal to the replacement ticket(s) cost charged to FanLyst by the involved online marketplace site, whatever it may be. You agree to cooperate with a Partner Site and FanLyst in determining fault for a fraudulent and/or defective ticket. You agree that you will be bound, after the necessary investigative process concludes, by the selling Partner Site’s determination with respect to fault. Replacement ticket costs, and therefore the fees you may be accountable for, can be up to 250% of the original ticket(s) listing price. FanLyst expressly reserves the right to collect the replacement cost from the user by and through any reasonable and customary means. User acknowledges and agrees that, in the event that User's ticket(s) sell but are determined to be invalid, fraudulent or otherwise ineffective in allowing the ticket(s) buyer from gaining access to the subject event, User will forfeit any and all deposits secured and retained by FanLyst as of that date, not to exceed the penalty amount assessed to User for the costs associated with a bad sale and/or failure to adhere to User's obligations under this Agreement.
You are solely responsible for the payment of any applicable taxes resulting from your ticket sales; please check the appropriate federal, state and local (based on where you live, i.e. county/municipality) laws setting forth what, if any, taxes you are responsible for paying after selling your tickets. You agree to provide FanLyst with your Social Security Number or other tax identification number if necessary for FanLyst to provide information to the Internal Revenue Service ("IRS") or other tax authorities related to payments you receive from us and further authorize FanLyst to release that information to the IRS or other tax authority. Upon the sales of your ticket(s) listed through FanLyst, you are hereby informed that you may have a potential legal obligation to pay any applicable local amusement tax in connection with the sale of your ticket(s), pursuant to 815 ILCS 414 1.5(e)(7)(B).
Site Changes Availability
FanLyst reserves the right at any time to modify or discontinue, temporarily or permanently, the Site, the Services, or any part of the Site or Services with or without notice for any reason. FanLyst performs regularly scheduled maintenance. While we do our best to avoid customer impact, the Site or our Services may be temporarily unavailable during maintenance periods.
Event Cancellations, Postponements, and other event changes
Cancellation: If an event is cancelled or a contingent event (e.g. playoff game) does not occur, we will remove the relevant listings and email you about the cancellation. The Buyer will receive a full refund and the Seller will, if he received payment, be charged the amount he received for the original sale. If a Seller needs his tickets to obtain a refund of the original purchase, he must reply to FanLyst's cancellation email within two weeks of the event cancellation.
Postponement: If an event is postponed and rescheduled, FanLyst will work with Buyers on a case-by-case basis attempting to resolve any ticket issues. Sellers cannot resell, invalidate or change the tickets for the rescheduled event. If a venue requires new tickets for rescheduled events, sellers are expected to deliver the new tickets. FanLyst reserves the right to cancel orders if new tickets are required. Refunds will not be issued for postponed events (unless they are ultimately cancelled).
Other changes: FanLyst is not responsible for partial performances, or venue, line-up, date, or time changes. No refunds will be issued in these instances.
