With so many ticket brokers promoting their inventories online, finding a safe, reliable, and affordable place to buy tickets can become frustrating and even overwhelming for the shopper.

When it comes to buying event tickets on the web, nearly all brokers and merchants claim to offer the cheapest tickets. So, how do shoppers determine which company actually offers the best deal? QueenBeeTickets.com, an established merchant in the secondary market, has announced its findings in this sensitive area of the industry.

Only companies who have been able to develop a true brand are able to charge a premium for their tickets. Many shoppers will stick with the recognizable names in the industry because shopping around can be so confusing. But, truth is, there are potential and sometimes substantial savings involved in doing some comparisons across different providers.

Lesser-known ticket providers find themselves in a very competitive position. They are constantly undercutting each other's ticket prices just to stay in the game. Online shoppers can use this to their advantage to save valuable dollars when they know how to use these websites effectively.

In most (but not all) cases, online shoppers can purchase the exact same tickets from different merchants who are selling from the same exchange. When that is not the case, pricing can still be compared for similar seats.

It is important for potential customers to go through the process of using competing websites to perform final pricing calculations. Brokers and merchants are able to manipulate ticket pricing in many different ways so that list prices, service fees, and shipping charges can vary greatly.

Here's an actual example for a pair of Madonna Tickets (Section 211, Row 2) for a concert happening tonight in Philadelphia at Wells Fargo Center:

QueenBeeTickets.com (offers a discount code):

List Price: $145.00 (each)
Service Fee: $26.10 (each)
Delivery: $15.00
Discount: $6.84
BOTTOM LINE: $350.36

Competitor A (lowest list price):

List Price: $137.00 (each)
Service Fee: $31.17 (each)
Delivery: $15.00 (total)
Discount: N/A
BOTTOM LINE: $351.34

Competitor B (no service fee):

List Price: $170.00 (each)
Service Fee: N/A
Delivery: $15.00 (total)
Discount: N/A
BOTTOM LINE: $355.00

Competitor C (larger company):

List Price: $146.00 (each)
Service Fee: $27.01 (each)
Delivery: $15.00 (total)
Discount: N/A
BOTTOM LINE: $361.02

As you can see, despite the fact that Competitor A displays a lower list price and Competitor B does not charge a service fee, QueenBeeTickets.com comes in lowest on the bottom line price for these Madonna tickets.

Competitor A appears to offer the best price on these Madonna tickets, but only the list price is lower, the final price is higher than QueenBeeTickets.com.

Competitor B does not to charge a service fee, yet the final price comes in higher than both QueenBeeTickets.com and Competitor A.

Competitor C is able to charge more for their tickets because they are known in the industry.
