Can You Sell Ticketmaster Tickets on SeatGeek?

The answer to this question is more complicated than a simple yes or no.

Technically, you cannot sell your Ticketmaster tickets directly on SeatGeek, since only PDF tickets, mobile ticket screenshots, and mobile barcodes for NFL are applicable in the SeatGeek Marketplace at the moment.

Ticketmaster does not provide such types of tickets, which is why they are not eligible to be uploaded to SeatGeek to sell.

However, you can go around this restriction to sell your tickets on SeatGeek.

Why You Can’t Sell Ticketmaster Tickets on SeatGeek

As mentioned earlier, you cannot sell Ticketmaster tickets directly on SeatGeek.

This is because SeatGeek currently only allows tickets that are in the form of PDFs or valid mobile screenshots, and it does not actually host tickets on its platform.

Ticketmaster does not provide PDF tickets.

Moreover, the screenshots of Ticketmaster tickets are not valid as actual tickets, since the QR code or bar codes on those tickets change periodically, due to which only the original Ticketmaster ticket can be used.

As such, you will not be able to upload the Ticketmaster tickets on SeatGeek for the sale.

However, as shown in this article, you can still make the sale on SeatGeek and use the Transfer feature on Ticketmaster to make the transfer after the confirmation of the sale.
