Frequently Asked Questions

How do I buy tickets on Ticketharbor?

You can send an offer to any listing that the buyers are requesting. Once the buyer accepts your offer, during the transcations you can message the seller directly to complete the transaction.

If you'd like to purchase tickets listed, simply pay with credit cards, and the seller will be responsible for sending your ticket within 48 hours or the transaction will be canceled.

What is an 'TicketHarbor' official listing?

The Ticketharbor listings are curated by us for faster and more secure transaction with us. Once the transaction is processed, the PDF ticket(s) or a USPS with tracking number will be delivered automatically to the buyer's email address. All Ticketharbor tickets come with buyer protection or money back guarantee. 

Do I get charged fees buying tickets with TicketHarbor?

No. Sending offers is always free on Ticketharbor. You can send an offer to any listing you are interested in and get connected with the seller to buy tickets.

We do charge a small transaction fee because  of our operational costs - website, credit cards, and more.

How do you verify sellers?

With our proprietary algorithm and monitoring, we can track Facebook accounts logged in with us to verify user’s social network identity, payment information, email addresses, locations, track record, and more. 

Our scenario: A profile that is located in San Francisco is selling Lalapalooza tickets (Chicago, IL) and is using a Florida credit card is prone to be flagged. Any suspicious or fake profile will be BANNED immediately.

Can you guarantee that all the tickets are valid?

Sorry, due to the nature of our network being peer to peer, we can only do our best to validate and verify sellers on our platform through our proprietary filter of distinguishing genuine buyer and sellers. Although we can’t guarantee that all tickets are valid, if you provide evidence that the ticket does not scan (i.e. Will-call evidence), we will give you your money back.

However, tickets listed by Ticketharbor offer you fan protection that if in any case you tickets are invalid or stolen, you can visit Will-call and redeem a new ticket.

The ticket I want to purchase is not listed as 'Instant Buy', can I still get fan protection?

Yes. If you are interested in a listing simply message the seller to do the transaction through the website and it will automatically be provided. 

How do I make a payment? How do I get tickets after I make a payment?

If your seller is a new, you will have to communicate with the seller to setup a PayPal account under Settings and payment. Afterwards, you will be allowed to make a credit card payment directly to seller. Tickets will be delivered directly by seller. (Email, physical mail or in-person meet up)

Is my payment information secure?

Definitely! We use PayPal Business, an leading secure online payment solution for our transactions. 

Can I cancel an order?

All sales are final. Unless an event is canceled, you will get a full refund on your order.

What happens if ticket is never delivered to me or my ticket doesn’t work?

If you are buying ticket directly from a seller, please contact the seller regarding ticket delivery. If the seller stops responding or makes any excuses of delaying delivery. Report the user immediately so we reverse the transaction and give a first-offence (or possibly immediate removal).

If your ticket is denied entry, you need to report to us as soon as possible by Facebook message and our email: We will help you find replaceable tickets in the best of our abilities.

Does having another person’s name on my ticket matter?

No, in most cases, venues do not care who the ticket is address to, the barcode or QR code is the only thing venue scans at admittance. The ONLY case when it matters is when a venue explicitly states they will double-check ID's (i.e. RadioHead hosted by Golden Voice in Southern California)

Do you have all the events? What do I do if I can’t find the event I’m looking to attend?

Although we are growing every day, our source of tickets are limited due to the capacity of different venues and popular demand. The best way is to refer to "Requesting tickets" so any new sellers may contact you immediately.
