How do physical ticket transfers work?

Post by dustandsnow » Tue Jul 19, 2016 9:06 pm

I've read through all of the Ticket Support FAQs and cannot find these questions answered. I've seen that it is possible to transfer a ticket to a person in another location by changing the email address in Ticketfly thus voiding the physical tickets and moving them to Will Call.

My questions:

1) What's to stop someone from selling a physical ticket and then voiding the physical ticket they just sold by transferring it via Ticketfly to someone else at Will Call?

2) If I buy a physical ticket from someone, do they also need to transfer the information in Ticketfly related to the ticket? Are the tickets someone registered to a name / email address?

Sorry if this is in some FAQ somewhere that I did not find. This is my second burn and I haven't successfully bought tickets using the online system so I don't have a sense for how it works.

Once shipped, it looks like the only way to transfer a ticket is the old fashioned way. Person to person, preferably face to face. Subsequent "owners" do not need to have it registered in their name

Good luck!
