Built By Fans, For Fans

CashorTrade (COT) is a global movement of real fans disrupting the secondary ticket market by trading tickets at face value for a fraction of the fees on other platforms. COT is currently growing by over 5,000 new fans each month, nurtures a social following of over half a million fans, and has over 200,000 members from every state in the nation and 20 countries. Over $6MM transacted on the platform in 2018.


We Make Amazing Experiences Possible For True Fans

A peer-to-peer social network that connects fans to trade tickets for the bands they love, using a proven, industry-disrupting social tech model similar to Airbnb and Uber:
  • Building Trust Between Fans

    Users show their identity, rate and review each other, and transparently display face value prices.

  • Creating Fan Networks

    Like Facebook and LinkedIn, users friend each other and create friend groups, making it easy to trade with those they know and trust.

  • Gaining Exposure

    Posts for tickets are syndicated to relevant lists on Facebook, Twitter, and ticket list plugins; pushed by email and text to interested members; and shared with the appropriate fan networks.

Social Reach

In 2017, Cashortrade processed 25% of all tickets (over 65,000 transactions) for Phish’s 2017 "Baker's Dozen" concert series, a 13-night sold-out run at Madison Square Garden.


CashorTrade seeks cross-promotional partnerships with complementary organizations focusing on improving the fan experience. Artists, venues, festivals, tour management companies, media companies, and other service providers have expressed interest in partnering with CashorTrade.

Bassnectar, MGMT, LCD Soundsystem and others have reached out to see if we can help reduce ticketing fraud around their events. Summer Camp Music Festival and The Werkout Music & Arts Festival have endorsed CashorTrade’s face value ticket exchange for their festivals. The Waterwheel Foundation, Phish’s non-profit, has reached out about selling tickets donated to CashorTrade.
