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.

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. Ticketmaster com offers a maximum of ten tickets at a time. You can then proceed to purchase tickets by going to the “Get Tickets” section.
Now everything will depend on which version of the Ticketmaster domain name you are using. For example, using the eng version, you will go straight to the payment page. The French version of the site will first ask you to pay an insurance of 2 euros. This will give you the opportunity to sell tickets on the service. If you do not use it, you will not be able to cancel the ticket. In this case, any of your excuses, will be considered invalid.
Important point. The ticketmaster com insurance policy is only valid for EU citizens.
If you are not, it is better to cancel your insurance. You can do this by clicking on the box next to “No, thank you”.
After that you will need to choose one of the shipping options. Based on this, a surcharge of 1.45/14.9/25 on the currency of the service will be calculated. Calculations are made in euros. That’s all. It remains only to select the method of payment, and complete the purchase process.
