Throughout the 2015-16 Cavs regular season and 2016 NBA playoffs we received feedback from a large contingent of Wine & Gold United Members expressing concerns over the bidding process on the Flash Seats Marketplace. As a means to find an effective solution and create a more member friendly experience, we opened the Flash Seats Marketplace for the 2016-17 Cavs regular season on September 29th with the bidding feature deactivated. This initiative was created as a “test and learn phase” to gain further feedback from members like you. After a month-long discovery process, in which we heard from dozens of Wine & Gold United Members, we are happy to share that as of today, Thursday, October 27th, we have re-activated the bidding feature on the Cavs Flash Seats Marketplace. As a means to produce the most efficient bidding method for those members looking to sell seats on the Flash Seats Marketplace, any buyer who wishes to place a bid on your seats must start their bid at a price point that is at least 50% of the per game variable price you paid as a member. We believe this will eliminate many of the concerns expressed by members last season.
