Why do I need to have a credit card on file in order to sell tickets?

We require all sellers to have a valid credit card on file but we will not charge it unless the seller is unable to fulfill their duties. In the unlikely case that there’s an issue with the validity of the tickets sold, a seller’s card may be charged a penalty as well as the cost to replace the tickets (up to 200% of the order cost).

When you list tickets on SeatGeek Marketplace, you may see a temporary authorization on this credit card. This is a security measure to verify the validity of your card.
