How to Sell Your Tickets: Always Safe, Always Secure

We know how it goes; life happens, plans change and you’ve gotta adapt quickly. Sometimes, no matter how much you’ve been looking forward to an event, you end up not being able to make it — which is why we’ve made selling your tickets as easy and stress-free as possible. 

Unlike posting to an unprotected forum or navigating a third-party resale site, when you list your tickets on Ticketmaster, you get a 100% guarantee that transferring your tickets to a buyer is safe and legitimate. 

Ticketmaster Verified Tickets enable you to sell your tickets to a marketplace of millions of other fans in just a few taps — while also assuring the buyer gets the seat they’ve paid for. Every ticket we sell, including resale tickets, are verified and issued in the name of the buyer which means they literally can’t be counterfeited. And no real life meet-ups or cash exchanges are necessary, it’s all done securely online. 

Read on to learn everything you need to know about selling your tickets with total peace of mind.
