SEPTEMBER 2019 NEWSLETTER
It was such an amazing summer full of epic moments and a dizzying amount of action here at CashorTrade. In case you missed it, here's a few of the most memorable:
BassNectar pulled together the Freestyle Party on 24 hours notice after the Freestyle Sessions was shut down. Fan reviews were through the roof: "melting laser and bass Freestyle show."
Derek Trucks in the Trey Band and Trey in Tedeschi Trucks playing Layla.
It was all such a whirlwind... total magic, and it was a record summer for CashorTrade. More fans scored face value tickets and more people joined the movement than ever before.
We asked for feedback, you gave it to us. We just launched a HUGE round of upgrades, including NEXT DAY PAYOUT for most members! On top of that:
- We added an #instantcommit option to speed up ticket transactions.
- Sellers can now choose to make their tickets #NoFee for buyers.
- We took a microscope to every step of the member communication process and we streamlined shipping options.
- We updated our Trader's Protection, How-To, help center, and FAQ pages - all thanks to input from members.
Check out our new blog post HERE for all the details on this upgrade and THANK YOU for helping us improve!

Fare The Well
Last month we lost one of our very own, Neal Casal. We are still processing the loss of a friend and colleague, who left this earth too soon. In honor of Neal, our friends from No Simple Road released a fitting tribute. Listen to the episode HERE. JRAD's empassioned Red Rocks performance was widely seen as a tribute to Neal, highlighted by an empassioned "Brokedown Palace" encore.
Do Good With Your Extra
With fall tour just around the corner, we'd like to take a moment to remind you of our charitable program in partnership with The WaterWheel Foundation. You can miracle (donate) the face value of your ticket to WaterWheel. When you do, the ticket shows up with a WaterWheel badge so that buyers know they're doing good by purchasing the ticket. Posts do not have to be Phish tickets to be donated to the foundation. Do good with your extra and donate to WaterWheel today!
Thanks for a special summer. Now it's time for fall tour!
