With the delayed download option, you make sure that tickets are already sold, but can only be downloaded later by ticket buyers. That way, the chance of black marketeering and fraud is smaller. Stager has an integration with TicketSwap. This ensures that delayed download tickets can already be resold via TicketSwap. This is called 'Sealed tickets'. The ticket buyer cannot see the ticket itself, but can resell it.
Activate delayed tickets
You configure whether delayed download will be used on the 'Tickets' tab of an event. Via Settings - Ticketing - Ticketing defaults you set how many hours before the event starts the tickets are mailed to the ticket buyers. This is between 4 and 48 hours before the event starts.
When ticket buyers purchase a ticket with delayed download, they receive an email with an order confirmation. This will include which event tickets were purchased for, how many tickets they bought and the price per ticket.
If your event already has tickets on sale, we do not recommend setting up delayed download mid-sale. Some ticket buyers have already received a ticket, while others are still waiting for a ticket. This causes confusion, and you don't want that.
The moment you deactivate the delayed download option, all ticket buyers will receive an email with a button to download the tickets.
Delayed download tickets can always be resold via TicketSwap just like normal tickets.
Because of the integration with TicketSwap, all delayed download tickets are also automatically already sellable on TicketSwap as sealed tickets, before the download link of the ticket is sent to the buyer. Once a ticket buyer has purchased a delayed download ticket, they can use a button in the Stager ticketshop to offer these tickets for sale online.
Once sealed tickets are resold, you as an organizer can get a share of the profit on that ticket. At TicketSwap, this is called FairShare. To take advantage of this, you as an organizer must have a partnership with Ticketswap.
