How to buy a ticket on ticketmaster.com
The system displays the information that you will receive confirmation of payment for the event after purchasing your ticket. It will be sent by e-mail. However, you may need to go to the box office and exchange the printout for an official ticket for the show. The Ticketmaster notification itself is not a ticket, but only a confirmation of payment.
In most cases, it’s just a warning that doesn’t make much sense. When you order tickets (no matter where it is done, in the web version of the resource or in the mobile app), you will receive ready-made tickets. They will be marked with a bar/QR-code. This is what will confirm your involvement in them.
The very procedure of paying for tickets on ticketmaster com can cost you money. For example, even for printed tickets you will have to pay a surcharge of 1.34 euros. This also applies to tickets purchased in the official Ticketmaster mobile app.
If you use delivery, which can be done by regular mail or by courier delivery DHL, you will have to pay a much larger amount of money.
An important point.
In the English version of the Ticketmaster site, tickets may be free. Take advantage of this as needed. For example, when the benefit to you will be an obvious fact.
You will have the opportunity to purchase tickets to an event that, due to some conditions, you may simply not be able to get to. You will also have the opportunity to get into a show or museum without taking a seat in the general line. Only ticketmaster com ticket holders have this privilege.
However, to avoid a surcharge, it is better to check the availability of tickets at the official resource of the proposed event (museum, concert or stadium).
Buying a Ticketmaster Ticket
Go to the page of the event you want to attend. Select the number of tickets you want. At one time, ticketmaster com offers a maximum of ten tickets. After that, you can start buying tickets, for this you will need to go to “Get Tickets”.
Now everything will depend on the version of the domain name you use Ticketmaster. For example, using the eng version, you will immediately get to the payment page. In the French version of the site, you will first be asked to pay the insurance of 2 euros. This will give an opportunity to sell tickets to the service. If you don’t use it, you won’t be able to cancel the ticket. In this case, any of your excuses, will be considered invalid.
An important point. The ticketmaster com insurance policy is only valid for EU residents.
If you are not, it is better to refuse from the insurance. You can do this by clicking on the box next to “No, thank you.
After this, you will need to choose one of the delivery options. On the basis of this, will be calculated markup in the amount of 1.45/14.9/25 of the service currency. Calculations are conducted in Euros. That is all. It remains only to select the method of payment, and complete the purchase process.
Here’s what the resource itself writes: “For to you buy the ticket sport, entertainment and live concerts from your name, use the payment service. Which can be understood as: “For you buy ticket sport, entertainment and live concerts from your Name, use payment service”.
If you pay by card, you can save its data for future purchases. The resource has serious protection, and all data is stored in encrypted form. So the function seems quite useful and safe. Payment can be made from absolutely any card, from any bank in Russia. Even debit cards which are not personal ones will do.
Each ticket you buy will contain a personal QR code. It is personal, and that is why every single ticket must be reproduced on a new piece of paper. Ticketmaster warns the users that if a stranger uses the QR code of your ticket, you will not be able to go to the event. The ticket will not be considered to be valid, it will be put into the list of the written off. You should also better have your passport. They can check the correspondence of your name in the document and on the ticket.
The date and time of the event, can be changed in advance. In this case, you will not receive any notification from Ticketmaster. On this basis, it is required to independently verify whether there have been any changes to the schedule even a day before the upcoming show.
Please note, the ticket must be printed on a blank sheet of paper. It is better to use a quality printer. Any blots and corrections are unacceptable.
It will be useful to read the terms of purchase, for example, by copying them, in the same Google translator. Usually the condition that the ticket is neither exchangeable, nor refundable looks like “the ticket is neither exchangeable, nor refundable”.
