We have tickets for events all over North America as well as other select markets as we expand. These tickets can be charged in a number of different currencies with corresponding tax amounts included. Most of our tickets are emailable, however, some events require hard copy tickets so shipping charges would be different.

All Canadian events will be listed in Canadian dollars and charge the corresponding tax, and all American events will be listed in US dollars and charged the corresponding tax.

Seat & Ticket Information
- Why doesn’t VenueKings.com display seat numbers?
Venue Kings lists tickets from our own inventory as well as from other sellers on our website. Therefore we do not always know seat numbers. In addition sellers may decide not to disclose exact seat locations because they are linked to the seller's identity. To list seat numbers would also reduce the number of available tickets for our customers to purchase.
- Are the seats that I am buying together/side-by-side?
Yes, at Venue Kings we guarantee the tickets you purchase will be seated together when they are purchased together. We recommend calling us if you would like to add tickets to a previous order and we will do our best to make that happen. It is also important to note that some tickets may not appear to be together when in fact they are. For example, some venue’s (especially theaters) will label their seats in odd or even numbered seating depending on the side of the venue your tickets are for. If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact us (1.800.625.KING) and we will do our best to help straighten things out.
- Why am I unable to order certain quantity of tickets even though there are more seats available than I need?
When we list our tickets often we select quantities that can be selected so we are not left with a single ticket. We try to sell even sets of tickets whenever possible. That could be 2,4,6,8 in an 8 pack of tickets, or 1,3,5,7 in a seven pack of tickets. If you cannot select the number of tickets you desire on our website please do not hesitate to contact us at 1.800.625.KING (5464).
- Why are there codes by some sections such as: club, reserve, lodge, etc?
Each venue has different names for sections of seating. At Venue Kings, we work hard to give our customers a good idea of the general location of each ticket and any additional information pertaining to the ticket (limited view, Wheelchair Accessible, etc). If our seating charts do not offer a clear description of your venue please contact us directly at 1.800.625.KING (5464).
- What if my tickets are lost or stolen?
When you receive your tickets keep them in a safe place. Unfortunately, Venue Kings cannot guarantee that tickets can be replaced if they are lost, stolen, or damaged. In some instances tickets can be reprinted, and Venue Kings will do its best to replace your tickets, but it is not always possible and cannot be guaranteed. Please also note that direct sunlight and heat can damage some tickets.
- What are e-mailed tickets?
Email tickets are the new alternatives to traditional, hard-stock paper tickets. These tickets are valid and are generally emailed in PDF format. They contain the bar code that the venue attendant will use to scan for admittance into the venue. Some venue’s can scan the barcode off your mobile device and others need the tickets printed off. To be safe we recommend printing off the tickets or contacting your venue directly. The file will we included as an attachment in your email and can be viewed through Adobe Reader (which you can download for free here) and printed. Please note that the name appearing on the PDF is of the original purchaser. Nonetheless, the tickets are completely transferrable and the attendee's name does not need to match the name on the ticket. All tickets sold on VenueKings.com are backed by our 100% Buyer Guarantee. If an order is made within 48 hours of an event, and the listing is marked with the "E-delivery" icon, then the tickets are available for electronic delivery.
- What does “Instant Download” mean?
Tickets designated as "Instant Download" will be available as electronic tickets typically within a few minutes after your order is confirmed. Some orders may require additional verification that will be initiated immediately upon receiving your order. When your order is confirmed, you will receive an email with download instructions for your tickets. These tickets are valid and 100% legitimate, and generally come in PDF format and contain the bar code that the venue attendant will use to scan for admittance into the venue. The file can be viewed through Adobe Reader (which you can download for free here) and conveniently printed. Please note that the name appearing on the PDF is of the original purchaser.

- What are “Paperless tickets”/how will I receive tickets that say “Paperless” in the notes?
Paperless ticketing is an alternative ticket delivery method, much like will call. Admission to events that utilize Paperless ticketing involves the original purchaser's credit card to be swiped by the venue attendant to gain entry into the event. Prior to the event, Venue Kings will coordinate the meeting between one of our representatives and you the customer. Our representative will then give the venue attendant the credit card originally used to make the purchase to allow you to gain entry into the event.

For Canadian events customers that purchase Venue Kings tickets through TicketNetwork will be charged tax after their original purchase.
TicketNetwork Tax website states that: “Taxes on tickets actually vary substantially from state-to-state and even between localities in various states - an ever-changing situation. This means that local and/or state taxes are not calculated on our checkout page during the purchase process. (Ticketing taxes are based on the location of the ticket seller supplying an order and most prevalent in Texas, Chicago, California, Michigan and Canada.)”
- Why am I being charged shipping when my tickets are being emailed?
We have a standard email ticket fee of $7.99. Any hard copy tickets that need to be shipped/mailed will have a higher fee.
- Who does VenueKings.com use for shipping?
Our preferred method of shipping is to email tickets, this allows us to send tickets out to last minute buyer's, use less paper, and is easy to track. If we need to use a courier to ship tickets we use FedEx or UPS for all our shipping needs. All tickets sent via secured courier require a signature upon delivery.
Tickets for events that are bought in advance may have delivery delays and therefore may not have been printed or released by the box office yet. In these cases, the shipping date is entirely dependent on when the "in hand" date is.
- Can I ship my tickets to a P.O. Box?
No. Venue Kings uses FedEx and UPS for all deliveries and because they require signatures for all shipped tickets they will not deliver to PO Boxes.
- I just placed an order with VenueKings.com and selected a Curior for Delivery, when should I expect delivery of my tickets?
In most cases, tickets will ship on the day that the order is confirmed. It is important to note that FedEx delivery options are based on the date the tickets are ready to ship, rather than the day they are purchased. Certain tickets may not be "in hand.” This is often the case with season tickets or fan club tickets, as they have not yet been printed by the team or box office. Tickets are 100% Guaranteed to be delivered before the event. Once the tickets are ready for shipment, we will send an Email that includes a FedEx tracking number. This allows customers to track tickets every step of the way. If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact us at 1-800-625-KING (5464) or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Why haven't I received my tickets yet? What is a delivery delay?
We try to send out all our tickets within 24hrs of an order being placed whenever possible. Some ticket providers have delivery delays and therefore we cannot ship tickets until the team releases them. A Delivery delay occurs when certain ticket providers such as teams, venues, and primary ticket sellers withhold tickets until closer to the event. These delays vary depending on what is set in place by ticket holders. If you have any questions please contact us at 1.800.625.KING (5464) or email us at email@example.com
- My FedEx shipment contained printed E-tickets; why were they shipped via FedEx rather than emailed?
We always encourage sellers and other brokers to designate E-tickets within their corresponding listings and allow for an emailable shipping option. However, some sellers might not provide that information and prefer to ship printed E-tickets instead. When ticket listings are in fact designated as E-tickets at time of sale, we will deliver those E-tickets electronically. Rest assured, printed E-tickets are valid for entry and are fully covered by our 100% Buyer Guarantee.
- What if I have missed my FedEx delivery?
FedEx will make three delivery attempts on consecutive business days. Venue Kings requires an adult signature for all ticket shipments and FedEx will not release the package until it is signed for. If the customer or an adult over the age 21 is unable to sign for the package at the delivery address, please call 1-800-GO-FEDEX (1-800-463-3339) and provide the FedEx Tracking number to arrange pickup at a local FedEx Office. A valid photo ID of the recipient is required, as well as the tracking number used to ship the package. If no one is available to sign for the tickets, FedEx will return the tickets to Venue Kings. An additional shipping charge will be applied if the tickets require reshipment.
- How can I track delivery of my tickets?
After we ship tickets via courier we email the tracking number to customers so they can track their tickets. If you do not receive a tracking number you can contact us at 1-800-625-KING (5464) or at firstname.lastname@example.org
- Why is an adult signature required upon delivery?

Once you place your order for e-tickets we will process your order as quickly as we can, usually we try to process orders within 24/hrs. At that time if we have the tickets we will email them over to you. Some teams put delivery delays on all their tickets and no one has access to these tickets until the team releases them closer to the game. In this case we cannot send out tickets until we have received and processed them. Rest assured we will send tickets in time for your event!
- I do not have a printer how do I print my E-Tickets?
If you do not have a printer you can ask a friend or family member if they can print your tickets for you, or you can print them at work, or print them at your local library, Kinkos, or any office supply store such as Staples or Officemax. To use these options you may not have access to your email and may need to download and save your PDF ticket files to a flash drive. Your tickets do not have to be printed in colour to be valid.
