With TicketFast barcode transfer technology, fans are reissued the tickets they purchase in the TicketsNow resale marketplace with a new barcode, further enhancing the safety and security of their purchase. TicketNow feature three unique types of ticket listings, which are clearly identified unlike most other resale marketplaces. First, there are tickets that are available and ready to ship within three business days. And then there are tickets to which the individual seller owns the rights to but are not available for immediate delivery. In this case, a specific ship date is noted in the ticket listing. The third type of ticket listing is "Section Seating." Section Seating is a concierge-style ticketing service where the ticket is not yet available and the listing reseller will seek to procure the ticket for you. After you place an order for seats in your desired section or area as noted in the ticket listing information shown, and your order is confirmed, TicketsNow guarantees that tickets, as good or better than the ones selected, will be procured and delivered in time for your event or your money back.
Ticketmaster's exclusive barcode verification technology provides consumers the ultimate in security and convenience. Select tickets listed on TicketsNow are verified by Ticketmaster and then reissued with new barcodes for the buyer, guaranteeing the validity of the ticket. Additionally, fans have instant access to their tickets via electronic delivery, which enables purchasers to print their tickets within minutes of each sale. Highly popular events often have fewer seats available than the number of people who want them. This means the tickets that are available tend to rise in price until the supply exceeds the demand. This is a classic example of market-based pricing. However, for events that aren't in high demand, tickets can often end up being offered below their original face value, resulting in great deals for consumers who are bargain hunting.
Ticketmaster, through its website alone, has sold more than 14,000 tickets per minute during high demand event on sales. However, it is not uncommon for several hundred thousand fans to make ticket requests in that same time frame. So for an arena event with a 10,000-seat capacity, with an average of three tickets per transaction, only 3,500 fans' purchases are satisfied. Before the internet, fans waited in lines at retail outlets, where you could easily see how many people were ahead of you. In the cyber age, all the fans are behind a computer screen all vying for the same pool of tickets. There are various tickets available for live events, drams, plays, concert, movies, games and opera from this website.
