StubHub promised its customers a full cash refund for cancelled events with its FanProtect Guarantee. Unfortunately, as our complaint alleges, StubHub is breaching its contract with its customers by refusing to give cash refunds for events cancelled by coronavirus.

StubHub Changes its Refund Policy After the COVID-19 Coronavirus Pandemic Began

Prior to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, StubHub’s FanProtect Guarantee told customers that “You will be refunded if the event is cancelled and is not rescheduled.”

Following the COVID-19 coronavirus outrbeak, many StubHub customers have reported that the company refuses to stand by the FanProtect Guarantee, which required refunding customers for cancelled events.  According to a report in the New York Times, StubHub stated that “handling refunds for the huge number of canceled concerts is simply not manageable.”  Per an interview quoted in Axios with StubHub’s president Sukhinder Singh Cassidy, the company decided to put the risk on its customers: “In normal times we would take the risk of giving refunds to buyers before recouping the same refund from the seller.  At regular volume, we can afford to take that risk.  But these are unprecedented times.”
