E Tickets For Concerts and Events
Concert, Sporting Event and Theatre Tickets by Email
What is an E-ticket? Simply put it's a ticket that is emailed to you. It's sent to the buyers email address.
If you order E-tickets from the box office they will usually come as a pdf. Be very careful with this email and print out. Once the bar code on the E-ticket is scanned at the event center, it is used. So whoever gets their first with a legitimate print out of the E-Ticket will get in. So don't give it out to anyone.
If you buy E-Tickets from an online E-Ticket broker, they may deliver them one of two ways. For security reasons, a legitimate online E-Ticket site will make sure that only one copy of the E-Tickets are printed. The E-Ticket may be listed as an E-Ticket. But in many cases the E-Ticket seller will print out the E-Tickets for the event and then FedEx the concert tickets to you.
The event ticket seller may also email you the E-Tickets as an attachment. In both cases the E-Ticket seller will only print or email one copy of the E-Tickets. Just like hard tickets, you will need to keep the E-Tickets secure, and make sure no one makes a copy of them.
Why buy E-Tickets? You can order the E-Tickets online and have them delivered without leaving your computer. If you order from a broker it will save you shipping costs in some cases.
They security issues are the same as they would be with a regular concert or event ticket.
If you buy thE-Tickets from the box office site make sure no one can access the email with the E-Tickets. If they are FedEx delivered, treat them as you would any event ticket. Put them in safe place until you leave for the concert.
I prefer E-Tickets. It saves me the trip to the box office and the wait of standing in line, etc. I've never had a problem with an E-Ticket. If you buy them from an online E-Ticket broker, please read Buying Concert and Event Tickets Online, before buying.
I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any questions related to E-Tickets for events or concerts.
