following terms and conditions govern your purchase of tickets through
eSeats.com. If you visit our site and make a purchase, or order tickets
via telephone with an authorized eSeats.com representative, you are agreeing
to the following terms and conditions. Please read through the Terms and
Conditions carefully before making a purchase. Purchasing tickets from
a ticket broker can be much different than buying from ticketmaster, the
venue, or the box office.
1. All Sales Are Final - No
Once a ticket request is submitted to us online, via one of our mobile apps
or by telephone there are no cancellations or
ticket exchanges. This takes effect immediately after your request has
been placed because once we receive your request
we secure and acquire the tickets for you and are
not able to return them to the selling broker. Please request tickets
after you are absolutely certain you want them.
2. Ticket Prices, Availability, Verification & Seating Location
Ticket Prices - Due to the costs associated with obtaining premium
tickets in the secondary market, the price you pay for tickets on
eSeats.com is set by the seller of the tickets not eSeats.com and is typically much higher than the FACE VALUE printed on the
tickets. Much like the stock market, ticket prices in the secondary market
are dictated by the laws of supply and demand and not the Face Price printed
on the tickets. eSeats.com is not affiliated with ticketmaster, the box
office or any venue. All sales are in US Dollars. All Canadian Event tickets are subject to a 13% Harmonized Sales Tax which is added on top of the ORDER TOTAL that appears on the eSeats shopping cart. eSeats.com buys and
sells tickets in the secondary market. If the ticket price has changed
after your ticket request has been made, we will contact you to let you
know. We will never charge you more than you have authorized.
Ticket Availability - Ticket sales are not made in real time. Ticket
prices and availability are guaranteed at the time the order is CONFIRMED
by us via email to you with a copy of your invoice attached. Since tickets
are bought and sold on an open market, prices and availability are subject
to change at any time. If the tickets you have requested are not available or have become more expensive,
we will attempt to replace them with equivalent or better tickets at the same price of the original tickets you requested. If the customer has opted to NOT accept equivalent or better tickets at the same price, the request will be cancelled within 1 week and the client's credit card will be fully refunded or the pre-authorization applied to the credit card will be cancelled immediately. As eSeats.com is PCI compliant, your credit card information is not stored on our servers.
Verification of Tickets Upon Receipt - It is the responsibility of the customer to check tickets carefully upon receipt via FedEx or via Email from eSeats.com. If there is
an error with the ticket location, date, or time the customer must contact our office
within 48 hours of receipt on hard traditional tickets, or within one (1) hour from the time of receipt on Electronic Email Tickets so we can provide you with the correct tickets for your event, otherwise we cannot be held accountable for the incorrect tickets received.
Seating Location - Since we represent thousands of ticket sellers
we cannot be responsible for typographical errors within the inventory
listed for sale. When an error is found while processing your order you
will be notified of the error and provided with other seating choices
(if available). Odd lot ticket purchases (ie. 5 tickets, 7
tickets etc) are not guaranteed to be seated together. Only pairs
are guaranteed to be seated together side by side. While every effort
will be made to keep groups together, orders of more than two tickets
are not guaranteed to be seated together. Actual seat numbers are never guaranteed as they are often protected for privacy reasons by the owner of the seats. In most cases the seat numbers provided on your invoice are random seat numbers. Actual seat numbers are not known until the physical tickets are distributed by our suppliers. After your order has been confirmed, we are not responsible for any financial damages or refunds if the venue or promoter makes structural changes to the seating which may negatively impact your view or proximity to the stage.
3. Order Processing
You will receive an e-mail immediately after you place your ticket request
confirming that we have received your request for tickets. This does not
confirm availability or prices. It only indicates that we have received
your request for those tickets. Internet sales are not in real time; therefore,
all tickets are subject to availability. We will contact you if the tickets
you requested are no longer available or if we are unable to fill the
order as you requested. If the tickets you have requested are not available
we will try our best to replace your request with equal or better tickets
if they are available at the same price. Online orders placed after 2:00
PM Arizona time during the work week or on weekends may not be processed
or shipped until the next business day. Weekend Ticket Requests - Except for major events, ticket requests submitted to us after 1:00 pm Arizona time on Saturdays will not be processed until Monday morning.
4. Ticket Delivery
For security reasons most tickets will be shipped to your billing address via FedEx Express service. Additionally, many suppliers will only print and FedEx out their Etickets even if the ticket is listed as a available for "E Ticket" delivery. This is to avoid security issues and from the Eticket being duplicated. Also, many venues do not accept Will Call drop off by third party sellers. For this reason, even if you have selected Will Call, Email or Local Pick Up as your preferred delivery method, your tickets may still need to be shipped via FedEx to your credit card billing address. The final delivery method for your order will be displayed on your invoice confirmation which will be emailed to you once your ticket(s) request has been processed.
All delivery options are based on the date the tickets are available to ship, not the
date you placed the order. It is common for event tickets to not be distributed to our suppliers until until one
to two weeks prior to the event date. Tickets will not be shipped via FedEx on Saturdays, Sundays or during major holidays. Due to the large quantity of orders placed on this site, we do reserve the right to deliver tickets for any order as late as the day of the event. Day of event delivery may be made by, but not limited to, will-call at the venue box office, courier to your hotel if time allows, or courier of the tickets to you personally at a location to be determined outside the venue. On retail or will call pick ups it is the responsibility of the customer to arrange for picking up their tickets from the retail or will call location provided. If the customer fails to pick up their tickets, we are not responsible for any financial loss incurred from the purchase of the tickets, and no refund will be issued.
4.1. All tickets sold by eSeats are sourced directly from the event organizers and licensed promoters and ticket suppliers. In the unlikely event that tickets purchased through eSeats.com are not honored by the venue, the customer is encouraged to call eSeats customer service for assistance. An eSeats agent will attempt to locate comparable replacement tickets for the customer. If replacement tickets cannot be found, or if the buyer is was not able to contact eSeats before the event, eSeats will issue the customer a refund for the full cost of the tickets, including service fees and shipping and handling charges.
Free FedEx Option (USA ONLY) - If the event you have purchased tickets for takes place within 7 days
and your order qualifies for the Free FedEx option, you will automatically
be charged an additional $19.95 on your order for next day afternoon delivery.
The Free FedEx option is only for events which takes place at least 7
business days from the date your ticket request is placed.
FedEx Shipments Outside the USA - FedEx to Canada costs $29.95. If you request tickets to be shipped to the UK, Europe, Asia or South America, you will be charged $39.95 for your shipment.
Will Call tickets - A valid drivers license or passport by the purchaser is required to collect tickets at the venue Will Call window
or specified pick up location.
FedEx Deliveries - All FedEx deliveries will require a signature. It is your responsibility
to provide a valid and secure address and have an adult available to accept and sign for delivery. Shipping and delivery times are subject to change and
vary by destination. If for any reason FedEx fails to deliver your tickets in time for your event you agree not to hold eSeats.com responsible for any costs associated with your tickets, shipping charges or additional financial costs related to the missing of your event. A Lost Claim will be filed by eSeats.com with FedEx on your behalf.
Returned tickets may be
listed for sale on consignment with our consignment department, time permitting.
Our consignment department will act as your agent to attempt to recover
some or all of your costs. You have the right to set the asking price
for your tickets; however, if no communication can be made, our consignment
department will price the tickets appropriately in an attempt to recover
as much of your money as possible. This may be substantially less than
what you paid in some cases. If the tickets are not sold by the event
date, our consignment department will return your tickets to you shortly
after the event. It is always in your best interest to remain in close
contact with our consignment department regarding the pricing of your
tickets. You also have the right at any time prior to your event date
to request that your tickets be sent back to you. Simply request your
tickets to be shipped in a manner that will get them to you in time for
your event. Please take into account any potential delays, such as adverse
weather conditions, as our consignment department is not responsible under
any circumstances for the timely delivery of your consignment tickets.
5. Credit Card Fraud Prevention
To protect our customers from credit card fraud, a signed authorization form, photocopy of your passport and the front and back of the credit card is required for the following
type of transactions.
a. All International Orders
b. When the shipping address is different than your credit card billing
c. Phone orders over $500 from first time customers
d. Online orders over $1,500 when shipping and billing addresses are different
e. At the discretion of the manager on duty
f. When Email ticket delivery is being requested by a new customer
If we have not received the required documents (Signed Authorization, Passport and Credit Card Front & Back) and deem that fraud may be occuring, even after you have received a final invoice, we have the right to refund your payment and cancel your ticket request.
The Credit Card Authorization form will be emailed to you after
we receive your request for tickets. Please sign the Credit Card
Authorization form which will come from RightSignature or Docusign and
return it along with a photocopy of a valid Drivers Licence / Passport as well as the front
AND back copy of the credit card used to make the purchase. You can also scan and email the documents back to firstname.lastname@example.org. You may
black out any personal information on your photo ID you do not wish us
to see as long as we can make out a signature and your name on the ID.
You may also black out the first twelve digits on the card, we need to
be able to read the last four digits on the card as well as your name
on the front and the signature strip on the back. Again, this policy is implemented
to protect card holders and prevent credit card fraud.
6. Stolen, Lost or Late Tickets
When you receive your tickets keep them in a safe place. In many cases, tickets cannot
be replaced if they are lost, stolen or damaged. Treat your tickets
like cash. Please note that direct sunlight or heat can damage some tickets.
Although extremely rare, if your tickets are lost or arrive late due to
FedEx's negligence, you agree to limit eSeats.com's total financial liability
to a maximum of $100. In the event your tickets are lost or arrive late
due to FedEx's negligence, we will file a "Lost Claim" on your
behalf and credit your account once we receive a refund from FedEx.
7. Cancelled Events
If an event is officially cancelled, and has not been postponed or re-scheduled,
a full refund will be issued for the amount paid for the tickets. Any
shipping and service charges are not refundable. In order to receive the
refund on a cancelled event, the following must happen:
a. Unused ticket(s) must be returned, in original condition, to our office
via FedEx or registered mail within ten (10) business days AFTER the event
has been officially cancelled. If after 10 business days from the date of the cancelled event the tickets are not returned to our office, no refunds will be given.
8. Postponed Events & Event Times
If an event is postponed or the start time has changed, the tickets will be honored for the new date
and start time of your event. New tickets will not need to be issued. Due to
the high number of concert, sports and theater events, it is
the responsibility of the customer, not eSeats.com to check with local
media outlets and the event directly to get the most up-to-date starting time for when your
desired event will take place. If you cannot make the new date or event time we can only offer
to waive the fees charged by our consignment department. If we are able
to sell your tickets you would receive 100% of the amount that we sell
them for up to the price that you paid. eSeats.com will make every attempt
possible to sell consignment tickets ahead of any other tickets listed
for that event.
9. Event Dates and Times are Subject to Change
Event dates, schedules and times published on eSeats.com and noted on your invoice are subject to change at anytime. This is especially
true for sporting events which are subject to television scheduling conflicts. Please be sure to check with the event or tournament directly before submitting your request for tickets.
All deposits are non-refundable. Even though you have not received the
tickets yet, we have already committed to purchasing tickets for you by
the time your order is confirmed.
11. Credit Card Purchases
Please note that purchases by credit card do not grant you any variances
from our terms and conditions. You are still responsible for complying
with our terms and conditions. Any attempts to defraud us will result in
your credit card payment refunded and possible legal action brought against you.
12. Disputes / Chargebacks
In the event you dispute your confirmed ticket order and the credit card
company decides against you, you will be assessed a $100 administrative
charge. This is to avoid victim fraud, banking fees and administrative
time spent handling the dispute.
Tickets for some events are not available to ship until closer to the
date of the event. Pre-Orders involve tickets that are purchased in advance
and are not currently in stock. Exact seating locations may not yet be
available so orders are taken for general seating locations. Tickets will
be delivered as soon as we receive them. In some cases deliveries are
not made until the week of the event. Please refer to individual event
pages or call for more information.
Pre-Orders may require a Credit Card Authorization Form to be signed by
the credit cardholder and faxed back to us along with a copy of the credit
card (front and back) and drivers license. This form will be provided
to you by an eSeats.com customer service representative.
We reserve the right to upgrade tickets to a higher priced seating location
at no additional cost to the customer.
14. Forms of Payment
We accept all major forms of credit: MasterCard, Visa, Discover, AMEX
and Bank Check Cards bearing the VISA logo. In some cases, as noted in
item # 5 above, a credit card authorization form must be filled out and
returned to us along with a copy of your passport or drivers license and
the front and back of your credit card.

Our corporate and Concierge customers have the option of opening an account

interested in setting up this type of account.
15. Limitations of Liability
We are not responsible for providing transportation or reimbursement of
travel related expenses under any circumstances unless those items are
specifically included as part of a package. Nor are we responsible for
any delay causing you to arrive late or miss your event for any reason.
Any actions by our company that do result in you missing your event will
be rectified with our liability not exceeding 100% of your total purchase
We are not responsible for the conditions or the actions of the crowd
at any event. The tickets that you purchase from us are valid and if someone
is sitting in your seat when you arrive it is your responsibility to ask
them to move or ask an usher to seat you.
In the event that we are required to seek legal remedies to recover fees
and/or resolve disputes, Client agrees that we are entitled to recover
all costs associated with such action by the client, including but not
limited to reasonable attorney's and administrative fees.
