Tickmaster .pdf restrictions

Many teams are moving to mobile-only entry in an effort to restrict ticket sales on the secondary market in favor of ticketmaster (where the team gets a commission). The only solution I see to this is to .pdf the mobile ticket with the barcode, then upload the .pdf to stubhub. There is no reason the buyer shouldn't be able to use the .pdf either on their phone or printed, but I want to be sure this is a valid method before I sell on stubhub or if there are alternatives I haven't thought of.  Please advise.

Re: Tickmaster .pdf restrictions

For SJ Sharks we no longer have the ability to do PDF versions of the tickets.  In theory you could screen shot each of the tickets and print them, but they aren't considered legitimate tickets.  You no longer have that as an option for listing your tickets either.  The only way to deliver now is via UPS.  However, I'm not sure how you'd UPS as there's no way to get hard copies.

Re: Tickmaster .pdf restrictions

So are you saying ticket scanner would reject a .pdf (whether printed or on your phone)?  

 

It doesn't seem like it would make a difference so long as the bar code is valid.  I often take screenshots of mobile tickets because internet access often gets sketchy outside events when everyone is trying to access it at once.

How to get approved to sell Mobile Tickets?

I have Pink tickets to sell, I have a barcode but not a PDF.  Ticketmaster gives me the option to transfer the tickets via email but not sell.  How do I upload the barcode so I don't have to print them and mail them?

Re: Mobile Approval

Entering barcodes for your delivery isn't always available as it depends if we're partnered for that event. If you're not seeing this for the show you're listing for, then giving us the barcodes isn't set up for that show. However, if you have mobile transfer tickets, you may be able to list your tickets that way!

Can I be approved to list mobile if tickets have already sold?

I made a mistake on here...

I listed tickets on Stubhub which have sold. Right now, it's listed as I need to "deliver" the tickets, but my tickets are mobile and I didn't realize that I need to be approved by Stubhub to list them.

Is there anyway I can rectify this? or is it too late to get "approved" and will have to cancel the sale? I originally bought these through ticketfly and can easily do a transfer

Re: Newbie

Hi! As a one time courtesy we can make the change but first, we will need to reach out to your buyer to confirm whether they accept the change to Mobile!  We'll send you a private message for more information!

Changing delivery from PDF to Mobile?

So I sold my P!nk tickets on Stubhub I purchased from Ticketmaster.  I noticed on my Ticketmaster receipt there is a transfer link, but my Stubhub sales receipt talks about uploading the tickets.  

Not sure how to go about getting tickets to the buyer.

Thanks for any help!

Generally, for any kind of Mobile Transfer, you have to be pre-approved.  You can actually find the steps above!

 

As for tickets you already sold, we can approve this as a one-time courtesy, but first, we have to reach out to the buyer to confirm they accept the delivery change.  We'll send you a PM to get more information!
