When will I receive my tickets?

Although tickets can be delivered to your account instantly, there may be a period of time between your order confirmation and when you receive the tickets. Tickets that are uploaded to your SeatGeek account or sent to you via email can be delivered within 24 hours of the event. This is due to security measures that venues use to keep your tickets safe.

As a result, sellers have to manually send your tickets via email or upload them to your account, sometimes on the day of the event. Your order is backed by our Buyer Guarantee, so you'll receive your tickets in time for the event. 

You can check the delivery method of your tickets in the Tickets section of your account. If you're wondering how and when most tickets are delivered, check out the chart below for more information.

The event is today and I haven't received my tickets.
Venues usually make tickets available outside of a seller's business hours, so you may receive them on the day of the event. If you purchased tickets on the same day as the event then you'll receive them shortly after your order is confirmed, usually within a couple of hours.

If your tickets were supposed to be mailed to you, contact us.

Tickets may need to be manually uploaded or sent via a third-party, so there can be a brief wait for your tickets to be delivered — even if the event is on the same day. However, you're guaranteed to receive your tickets in time for the event. For more information about our Buyer Guarantee, click here.
What if I don't receive the tickets in that timeframe?
If you haven't received your tickets within their respective timeframe, please contact us by scrolling down and tapping Contact Support while viewing your order in the SeatGeek app. Click here to see how.
