It’s happened to all of us at some point: you’ve got tickets to an event you’re beyond excited about, you’re gearing up for the best time ever, and then BAM – something comes up and you can’t go.
You’re devastated. Distressed. Down in the dumps. It’s the worst, but it’s not the end of the world. There will always be other concerts, shows, and games, and for many events you can recoup the cost of the tickets by selling them from your Ticketmaster account.
Yes, you heard us right. If you purchased tickets to an event you can no longer attend, you can simply sell them to another fan right from your Ticketmaster account. It doesn’t cost you anything to sell and it’s 100% safe for both you and the lucky buyer – meaning you get paid and they get in to the event with Ticketmaster Verified Tickets.
So whether you’re bummed to miss your favorite artist play or crying into a bowl of soup over fouled tickets to watch your favorite team, you’re in luck, because selling tickets from your Ticketmaster account is a snap, and getting paid for tickets you’ve sold is automatic.
Here’s how to do it:
1. Look for the Sell button on your ticket order.
Once you’ve located the Sell button, click it to get started (no Sell button means no selling for that event or ticket type).
2. Select which ticket(s) you want to sell.
You can sell all your tickets, or just some of them. For example, if you bought four tickets with a double date in mind and the other couple canceled, you can keep your two tickets and sell the extra pair. Got it?
3. Set your price.
They’re your tickets and you can set any price you see fit. No matter what price you pick, there are no fees to sell tickets. Sweet!
4. Tell us where to send your payment.
Enter your debit card or checking account info for hassle-free cha-ching when tickets sell. You’ll get paid by direct deposit and you can expect the funds in your account within 7-10 business days after your tickets sell.
5. Review your listing, sit back, and relax.
You’ll be notified by email when the tickets sell, and you can edit or remove your listing at any time if you change your mind – or can suddenly make it to the event!
