We are a community of real fans

No scalpers, no brokers...
just real people sharing our love for music.

We are kind: we launched the site in 2009 on tour with your input. Built for fans by fans.

We are transparent: as a buyer you know where your ticket is coming from, and as a seller you can be assured you are hooking up a real fan. Check their profile, read their reviews, chat & even meet up for second set!

How it Works

Trader's Protection™

The most comprehensive insurance service for fans buying & selling tickets.

On CashorTrade both buyers and sellers are protected by Trader's Protection™, a 100% money back guarantee on all ticket purchases and sales. CashorTrade accepts payment from buyers via credit or debit card, protects the trade by holding funds in escrow, and promptly pays out each seller.
