ticketmaster credit card entry tickets

I see a lot of people talking about this. I got two GA tix for TO. It crashed so many times, I don't even know if my tix are ticketmaster credit card entry tickets.

My husband has a presale code for tomorrow with his fan club account. It shows you can't use the same credit card or billing address as another order or your orders could be cancelled.

I was thinking of using my dad's credit card since it has a different billing address.

Do you think they are really going to ask people for their exact credit card the tickets were purchased and and photo id at the arena? Trying to figure a way around this.

Also, I saw talks of paperless tickets. How do I know if that is what I have. What do you show at the gates to get in?

Credit Card Entry = Paperless Tickets.

From FAQ on Ticketmaster
Is Credit Card Entry different from Paperless Tickets?
Nope, it’s the same thing – just a new name.

Unless your dad/spouse etc is coming w you to venue, i dont think it will work to use their card

From TM FAQ
Ticketmaster Credit Card Entry - Information and FAQs. Official Ticketmaster Site


Easy – the card you used to buy your ticket is your ticket. Just show that card at the entrance along with a photo ID; they’ll swipe it to find your purchase and print a seat locator slip. Have fun!

Also from Ticketmaster FAQ: What if the credit card I used expires before the event?

Just bring the old card, or the replacement card with the same account number. If you destroyed the old card and your new one has a different account number, please contact Fan Support.

I used a prepaid credit card for an Arcade Fire credit card entry ticket, and it worked perfectly fine, not a problem. I'm planning on using the same one at 12.

TM doesn't allow gift cards or prepaid cards to be used, because that's a workaround the system that scalpers have tried. I have a $50 gift card balance sitting on my TM account, but didn't use it to buy tickets yesterday because it's credit card entry, and it states you can't.

Name on the card has to match the name on the ID. The person who bought the ticket also has to attend the event, they can't just walk two others to the door for entry, and leave. Again, that's another scalper workaround. Vivid Seats was trying this for some of the Foo Fighters small venue HBO shows, saying fans could meet a rep from Vivid Seats who'd swipe them in. Venues said they wouldn't allow anyone being walked to the door and using a prepaid card, so I'm sure a few fans got screwed over.

excellent. Thanks. Seemed like the Arcade Fire pre-sale was much smoother than Day 1 U2 pre-sale.

From the FAQ: Can I buy tickets with a gift card or virtual credit card?

Sorry, you gotta use a credit card – the plastic kind – so it can be swiped at the entrance to find your purchase.

Ticketmaster tickets needs a credit card and ID to show to enter the concert. But what about tickets from Eventim?

it HAS to match the ID with the Credit Card
