I am sure there are legitimate, INTERNAL reasons for those variances that are NOT relevant to outsiders. It's just an internal coding system...and probably has to do with sponsors' share of tickets and LOCOG's pool of discretionary comp seats--which seats they can give away...fulfilling IOC-written sponsor obligations.

Well I got bored of waiting to get ticket holders off the 2012 website so Ive made my own. Bought official Lanyards, found plastic ticket holders then branded the holder up myself. Blank one side and

Just got my Paralympics email. I got Opening, closing ceremonies and athletics with the 100m final woo hoo.

OMG!!! I got 2x £20.12 Opening Ceremony tickets !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Can't believe it I am going to the opening ceremony!!!!!!! :D:D:D

Sounds like they're changing the resale system. They'll buy back tickets people don't want over a period, then only after that will they sell them onto buyers.

i guess that why both accounts i have none of the tickets i can resell yet just says resale currently unavailable.

Do we know if they are extending the date to do it? was due to end 6 Feb

Has anyone on here resold tickets yet?

I just don't get this. Vancouver used ticketmaster (if I am not mistaken). Ticketmaster should be able to deal with this, they did a good job for Vancouver.

I imagine they didn't have to cope with anywhere near the demand for Vancouver, than they are having to for London. Not an excuse, they should still have been fully prepared.

Was the demand the problem though? I'm not sure. I still think the problem with the resale was the fundamentals of the system. Few tickets, lots of people wanting them, no way to "reserve" tickets as yours once they were in the basket. :rolleyes:

Vancouver cannot possibly have had the same system as this, it's fundamentally wrong.

Which does beg the question, as Faster said, why didn't Ticketmaster use whatever system they used for Vancouver for the resales?

No the system in Vancouver was not the same... Tickets to be sold were proposed as a specific entity for each ticket holders, and not put in common in a general basket !

And they were put on hold the time you finish your order.... someone else was not able to buy them during this time...

So nothing to deal with the previous London system !

I think one of the reasons was because LOCOG won't allow resale at a higher value. Vancouver's system had tickets listed for resale and the saler could determine the price.

It's ilegal in Europe to sale at higher value...

But this is not te reason why they are not using the same sytem. It would have been easy to reuse this system with a fixed face value ...

London 2012 Olympics diary: ticketless will get priority in final ticket window, says Locog chief

London 2012 chief executive Paul Deighton has promised that disappointed Olympic ticket hunters will take priority when the final load of Olympic tickets go on sale in April.

Deighton told Telegraph Sport: "We are making the system so that people who have missed out on getting tickets in the public ballots will have a priority in the next sale."

Organisers are still to work out how to stagger the sales, but it could be that those that missed out in the ballot are notified hours in advance of any general notification when specific blocks of tickets go on sale.

However given that 700,000 applicants have still not been able to secure any ticket, the Ticketmaster website, which has been troubled coping with high demand surges, will have to be robust.

I've put a couple of sets of my tickets up for resale on the official site. One thing they don't seem to mention and that is when to expect payment. Does anyone know? I assumed it would be instant seeing that LOCOG said that they will buy back all tickets before selling them in April.

It was mentionned on the website that payment will be done in the following 2 weeks of the sale!

The money from my Paralympic resales landed in my account yesterday. I put mine up for sale on the first day of resales.

I browsed but didn't buy from Dertour on this occasion. I've heard that many others got their email confirmation within 24 hours, although some are still waiting. If your confirmation screen included a reference number, I'd suggest contacting them by phone or email if you haven't heard by, say, halfway through Friday. Alternatively (but a bit more public) you could contact them via their Facebook page - https://www.facebook.com/dertour.live.de - they seem to be quite responsive.
