Frequently Asked Questions

What are the top reasons to use TicketFire?

  1. To digitize tickets so that you conveniently have your tickets with you on your mobile phone for entry to the event.
  2. To avoid last minute meetups and transfer tickets via text message or email to friends, family and others. The recipient does not need the TicketFire app to open the tickets.

What happens if my ticket fails to upload?

If your ticket fails to upload, this could be the result of poor image quality, lack of necessary details on the ticket, or an invalid ticket. We encourage you to check that the ticket is valid then retake the picture, ensuring that all the important information is captured. This information includes: event name, venue, date, and section/row/seat number.

How do I find out why my ticket failed to upload?

Click the alerts icon in the top left of the screen to gather info on why your upload failed.

Transferring Tickets

How do I transfer a ticket to another individual?

In Tickets, select a ticket and then click the share button in the top right corner of the screen. Choose which action you would like to take from the list. Next, select a recipient from your contacts or simply enter the name and mobile number of the person you are transferring the ticket to – TicketFire will then create a claim code and send a text message to the designated ticket recipient.

How do I claim a ticket that has been transferred to me?

As the ticket transfer recipient, you will receive a text message displaying the email of the person who sent you a ticket through TicketFire. You can open the ticket in the TicketFire app, or you can click the hyperlink found in the text. If you click the hyperlink, you will then be prompted to enter the last four digits of your cell phone number in order to unlock the ticket. After that, you are free to use your ticket right away.

Will I be able to get in to the event?

Yes! The barcode works with all the major static barcode providers (e.g. Ticketmaster, Eventbrite, Tickets.com, and more!).
