To purchase tickets, first find your event by browsing or using
our powerful site search. Then select the tickets you want from the list of options and add them to the cart by
clicking the Buy button. Please note: the tickets offered for sale on our website may be listed at above, or
below, the “face value” printed on the tickets. To finish your order, follow the instructions on the
checkout page to fill in the necessary information. The checkout page will list the total charge on your order
including fees for service charge and delivery. Before you place your order, you must confirm that you agree to
our Terms of Service.
After submitting your ticket request, we then will confirm the availability of the tickets with the ticket
seller. Once the ticket seller confirms the tickets are available, you will receive an order confirmation email
that states your order is now confirmed. A majority of orders are confirmed near instantaneously while others
may take a few hours, or days in some extra situations. That confirmation message will come via email and/or
text message. It includes instructions how your tickets will be delivered or how to access them via a mobile
app. If the ticket seller is unable to confirm the tickets you requested, then you will be notified via email or
offered substitute tickets at no additional cost to you. Please note: always check your email junk or spam
folders to make sure the ticket confirmation was not erroneously placed there by your email provider.
You will receive an email, or text, letting you know once your
order has been confirmed by the ticket seller. Orders are typically confirmed very fast after you put in your
order, but can take a few hours in some situations, or even up to 2 business days in really rare instances. If
you do not see an order confirmation email, then please check in your email junk or spam filter to make sure the
ticket confirmation was not erroneously placed there by your email provider. If the ticket seller is unable to
confirm the tickets you requested, then you will be notified via email or offered substitute tickets at no
additional cost to you.
Once your order is confirmed the tickets will be delivered, or
accessible, as soon as the ticket seller has the tickets in their possession. That typically occurs a short time
after the order is confirmed, which may be a few minutes from many mobile tickets, or perhaps a few hours or
days in rare instances. Please always check your email junk or spam folders to make sure the tickets, or ticket
download instructions, were not erroneously placed there by your email provider.
When purchasing far in advance of the event, please keep in mind that the tickets may not yet have been printed
or distributed to the ticket seller. Certain teams, artists and venue box offices may hold distribution of
tickets until the hours, or days, just prior to the event. In those cases, you will receive an expected date for
delivery based on when the ticket seller expects to have the tickets “in hand”. On some orders your
tickets may not be delivered, or otherwise accessible, until the day of the event. Please rest assured that
whatever the delivery method or expected ship date, you are guaranteed to receive your tickets in time for the

delivery method you selected as soon as the ticket seller has the tickets in their possession. Certain delivery
methods will require you to act to access your tickets (e.g.- login to download your tickets). Tickets

check your email junk or spam folders to make sure the tickets, or ticket download instructions, were not

then promptly save to the wallet (e.g.- Apple Wallet) on your mobile phone. Having them loaded in your phone's
wallet allows them to be scanned easily when you show up to the venue for your event.
