Amazon has been selling theater and concert tickets online in the United Kingdom since last year but it’s yet to do this on its home turf. The company hasn’t confirmed as yet if it’s going to start selling tickets online in other markets but a new job listing posted by the company has been spotted which suggests that Amazon online ticket sales might soon go live in the United States.
The job listings spotted by Recode talk about an “international expansion strategy” aimed at European and Asian markets. Multiple listings reveal new positions are open at Amazon’s headquarters in Seattle where the new resources might be tasked to work on a Prime Tickets feature.
The name suggests that this might be another added incentive for those who have an Amazon Prime membership. The job listings obviously don’t reveal much about the company’s plans but there’s enough there to suggest that online ticket sales may eventually go live in the United States.
Amazon doesn’t hide any service or additional fees related to ticket sales in the United Kingdom which is one of the reasons why it’s the preferred location for many to purchase concert and theater tickets online.
That candid approach to pricing is what sets it apart from other ticket sellers. Couple that with the fact that millions of people already use Amazon and have their payment details on file and you see no reason for Amazon to not start selling tickets online in its home country.
