E-commerce skyrocketing for live event ticket seller

Perhaps proving that there are profits in online commerce, Ticketmaster Online sold 522,926 tickets worth $19.5 million over its Internet site during the first quarter ended April 30, 1998.

The tally represents a 270% increase over online ticket sales of 153,344, valued at $5.3 million, for the same period last year.

“We are pleased to be at the forefront of the electronic commerce revolution,” said Fred D. Rosen, prexy/CEO of Ticketmaster. “The explosive growth that we’ve witnessed over the past year should only continue as the Internet’s audience expands.”

Internet sales represented approximately 3% of Ticketmaster’s overall domestic business for the first quarter, compared to approximately 1% for the first quarter of last year.

In addition to its U.S.-based Internet operations, Ticketmaster recently completed transactional Web sites for its U.K. division and its partner in Mexico.
