My event got cancelled, what now?
Whenever an event is canceled, we are always dependent on what decision the ticket provider/organizer will take on how to solve the issue for the original buyers of the ticket (in the case of TicketSwap the sellers).
We will always follow the decision of the ticket provider/organizer and will help arrange the same solution for the buyers on TicketSwap.
Regular sale (not Secure Swap)
As soon as the ticket provider/organizer has indicated that they will refund the original buyers, we will reach out to the sellers and ask them to refund the amount they have received from TicketSwap to the buyers via our platform.
Please take into account that it can take up to several weeks before the seller can refund the ticket, as ticket providers/organizers often need a long time to get everything ready before refunding the original buyers.
We will always chase the seller multiple times to pay back the refund. If they refuse to, they will be banned from the TicketSwap platform and you as a buyer would be able to file a police report against the seller. Unfortunately, TicketSwap will not be able to compensate for the financial loss.
My event has been cancelled, how do I get in touch with my seller?
If an event is cancelled, you will receive an e-mail from us. In this mail there are instructions to get in touch with the seller. In this conversation we will ask you to find a solution amongst yourselves.
Besides chatting, there are multiple options you can use as the buyer of the tickets, like ‘Send a notification to the seller’ and ‘Call seller’. These options are used to remind your seller of the conversation.
Whenever you have bought a ticket with Secure Swap, there is no need for us to get the money back from the seller as we are able to settle the possible refund with the organizer ourselves.
As soon as the organizer has indicated that the buyers will be refunded, we will inform the buyers on our platform about their refunds and the refund amount via email. You will always be refunded directly on the payment method you used to make the initial purchase.
