As an example, if you buy tickets to live shows at Turner Hall Ballroom, The Riverside Theater, or The Pabst Theater here in Milwaukee, you can usually expect to see multiple "convenience" or "processing" fees tacked-on to the regular ticket price (including such things as, "Historic Preservation Fee", "Credit Card Fee", "Will Call Delivery Fee" and, just before checking out (online), a separate "Order Fee" added to the grand total, before processing your actual payment for the tickets).
Yes......But Not Enough To Refuse To Pay Them. Thing is, more and more lately, the theatres are doing that selected seating thing, so unless you buy your tickets online in advance you don't get the best seats. I need me the best seats! Middle, middle!

The main venue here in Montreal (that houses the Symphonic Orchestra, the Opera and theatres of different sizes for various shows - in fact I am going there on Saturday to see the Japanese drums group Kodo) used to have a convenience fee for buying tickets online. I don't remember how much it was, but I hated it so much that I would sometimes go in person to the ticket office just to avoid paying it. They don't do that anymore; I don't know if they scrapped it or if they just embedded it in the price.
