In reviewing and/or purchasing tickets, you may be linked to a third-party site, which is not affiliated with our Services.

Please make sure to review the terms and conditions that you will find on these third party sites.

If you decide to purchase tickets, merchandise, parking or other rights, you agree to pay, in addition to the price for the tickets or other items, other fees and charges that we impose, such as convenience fees, processing fees, shipping and handling fees and other miscellaneous fees. You also agree to pay any applicable taxes, including, but not limited to, any applicable admissions tax. As a seller of tickets you agree that we may receive payment from the buyer in respect of such fees and charges.
We have the right to reject or cancel any purchase, including if we suspect fraud or any other issues with payment or suspicious account activity.
4.2 Purchases - Primary
Unless otherwise stated as part of the purchase, any Primary tickets purchased on the Service are typically subject to a per-ticket convenience charge and a per order processing and/or delivery fee. Depending on the venue, the ticketing company and your delivery choice, delivery charges may also apply. You may be able to avoid certain charges by purchasing tickets directly from the venue’s box office. In some instances, tickets delivered via Flash (digital) method of delivery will not incur a delivery charge.
We may also impose other fees and charges including, but not limited to, charges for issuance, convenience, handling, processing, shipping, delivery (including, but not limited to, charges for courier delivery) and any other miscellaneous charges assessed by us represent, among other things, the costs we incur in providing our goods and services to you. The fees and charges we assess may be greater than our actual cost of providing those services, and we may retain a portion of all such fees and charges as profit. All purchases, including both the face value and the associated fees, are non-refundable.
4.3 Purchases - Resale
If you are purchasing a Resale ticket, there may be applicable buyer, transfer, and/or logistics fees and charges we impose. Such fees and charges may vary by event and venue. Please consult the information found within each event detail page, which will detail any and all applicable fees and charges. We reserve the right to increase or decrease this fee at any time without advance notice for future transactions.
If you are purchasing a Resale ticket, you will be entering into a contract with the seller of the Resale ticket for the transfer of the Resale ticket.
We do not review, nor do we warrant or guarantee, the accuracy of any information provided by Resale sellers of tickets in the seller comments areas of any ticket listings (if any). You should base your purchase decision solely on the information indicated by the Section, Row and Seat Number in the listing, seller name, and/or the unique ticket identification number provided.
You are solely responsible for making a purchase, based on the information provided on our website. We do not have any legal authority to complete a purchase on your behalf, and do not act as your agent. By providing payment details and clicking “buy now”, you are agreeing for us to debit or authorise payment for the Right(s) via the payment method provided.
You are urged to review all pages displayed during your completion of a purchase. All fees and charges relating to your transaction will be disclosed to you during the purchase process. If you do not agree to pay the fees or charges associated with your purchase, you may cancel your transaction prior to completing it. All completed transactions are final, so please be sure that you have selected the proper event and Right(s) relating to such event prior to completing your purchase.
5.1 Sales – General
You are prohibited from selling or offering for sale your Right(s) through another publicly available marketplace, whether or not electronic or accessible through the Internet, unless such marketplace is an authorised partner of AXS. Any use of our website to facilitate the sale of Right(s) through another publicly available marketplace that is not our partner may result in any or all of the following: (i) cancellation of the transfer or sale transaction conducted on our website; (ii) a charge of our sales fee (defined below), calculated with respect to the full sales price of such Right(s) sold or transferred, assessed against the seller/transferor of such Right(s) (such sales fee will be charged to the credit card on file for the seller/transferor twenty-four (24) hours after we provide notice of the assessment of such charge to such person via email); (iii) revocation of the seller/transferor’s rights to use our website and any or all of our other services; and (iv) revocation of such sold or transferred Right(s) by the event/venue.
AXS Official seller fees may vary by event and venue. Please consult the seller fee information found within each event detail page. Our sales fee (defined within each event) will be assessed against you as the seller of any Right(s) that are sold or offered for sale, as well as any VAT that may apply, both of which will be deducted from the transaction amount due to you. At the time of the sale, you will receive information on how the proceeds due to you from any sale transaction will be submitted, including options of various methods if such options are available.
We may also impose fees and charges payable by the buyer, such as convenience fees, processing fees, shipping and handling fees and other miscellaneous fees. You, as seller, consent to AXS receiving payment in respect of such fees and charges from the buyer.
5.2 Sales – Primary
We only act on behalf of a seller when selling tickets. This means that event promoters and venues have given us authority to conclude a sale of tickets to a buyer for the tickets that they have chosen to list for sale.
On receipt by us of payment from you, we shall transfer the ticket to you, subject to this Purchase Agreement, our terms and the specific terms and conditions of the event promoter and/or venue.
5.3 Sales – Resale
We only act on your behalf, as seller, when reselling tickets. This means that you agree that we will have authority to conclude a sale of the tickets to a buyer on your behalf once you have told us to list the tickets for resale. You will also be entering into a separate contract with the buyer of the tickets to transfer the tickets to them.
On receipt by Hyperwallet or us of payment from the buyer, we shall transfer the ticket to the buyer and the buyer shall have no further liability to you, as seller. The proceeds of any Resale transaction will be held in a separate account by Hyperwallet. The proceeds from Resale transactions, less any fees and charges due to us, will be transferred to you within 10 days after the relevant event.
Finally, as a seller of tickets, you agree never to specify or include any of the following within the seller comments area of ticket listings:
Transfer fees may vary by event and venue. Please consult the seller fee schedule found within each event and venue’s branded area. Our purchase fees may apply to you if you as a transferee are receiving tickets pursuant to a sale of such tickets through another publicly available marketplace. Our sales fee (defined within each event and venue’s branded area) will be assessed against the seller/transferor of any tickets that are sold or offered for sale on another publicly available marketplace. Our fees will be charged as provided to the relevant credit and/or debit card on file for the transferor and/or transferee.
5.6 General Limitations
All scheduled actions including, but not limited to, purchases and listing expirations will be processed approximately at the date and time specified as indicated by the AXS system clock. You acknowledge and accept that actual processing time may vary by seconds or in unusual cases, by minutes, from the exact time specified.
Our system will automatically complete a sale if it receives any valid offer to purchase for any listing that remains in effect and available for purchase. Listings will be deemed to be in effect from the time our system processes the listing action until the earlier of (i) the time our system processes the expiration or withdrawal of the listing or (ii) the time our system completes the processing of a retraction action for that listing. Listings are not considered retracted until they have been processed and a system confirmation has been issued.
5.7 Limitations on Transfer or Re-Sale
Your ability and/or right to transfer or re-sell tickets purchased may vary. Please read the ticket description and information for each event carefully, as any such restrictions on transfer or re-sale will be included in the description of the ticket.
5.8 Right to Cancel Primary or Resale Transaction
In certain circumstances, we have the right to cancel a transaction without notice and return the tickets to the event promoter or venue, or the person who held the tickets prior to the completion of the transaction. Such circumstances include, but are not limited to, the following:
In these instances and as part of the cancellation of any transaction, AXS reserves the right to remove any relevant sales proceeds from the resale seller’s AXS account, process a reversal of a prior funds transfer made to the seller or charge the credit card on file for such seller and/or cancel a pending transaction, whether for resale or primary tickets.
If you feel that a charge has been made to your credit card in error, call our helpline or email our customer service department at [email protected]
Our helpline number is +44 0203 481 55 06. Our helpline is available to all of our current and potential customers. Our helpline allows current and potential customers to manage/set-up their account information in any way that is permitted by our website. To access our helpline services, current customers must provide specific personally identifiable information that matches the current information in the account.
We and designated personnel of the venues associated with an event, event producers and/or event promoters are authorised to perform any action on your behalf that you could otherwise perform if instructed by someone in possession of your account authorisation information. You agree that we may perform these actions, including, but not limited to, addition or correction of account profile information, addition of additional forms of electronic identification to your account, transferring Right(s) to others, listing Right(s) for sale, and/or purchasing Right(s).
Please review your tickets carefully, including date and location of the event and your seat selection, before completing your transaction. Unless otherwise stated in our terms, tickets cannot be exchanged or refunded even if lost, stolen, damaged or destroyed.
Events may be postponed or cancelled for a variety of reasons. If you hold tickets to an event that is postponed or cancelled, we encourage you to directly contact the venue to obtain information about postponed dates of the event and whether there is an applicable refund. Refund policies vary by venue and event; by purchasing a ticket, you agree to the refund policy of the associated venue and event. Please note that if an opening act or guest artist is changed or cancelled, the event is not considered cancelled and you will not be entitled to a refund or exchange. We will try to provide you with this information on rescheduling and refunds as it becomes available to us, but the venue and event promoter will have the information more immediately.
Please note, any resale tickets purchased on the Resale Marketplace cannot be refunded in the event of a postponement, regardless of the associated venue policy.
If an event is rescheduled and you are unable to attend on the rescheduled event date, you may be able to receive a refund if you purchased a primary market ticket depending on the venue policy. However, you will need to seek such refund within the stated time after the event is rescheduled. If you do attend the rescheduled event, we will try to offer a ticket with the same value or in the same location as the one you originally purchased, although that is not always possible. You will not be able to seek a refund based off any changes to the exact seat we are able to offer so long as it is not materially different in AXS’ reasonable opinion.
In the unlikely circumstance of event cancellation, cancellation policies may require that you refund the proceeds you received in a Resale transaction from a buyer (so that every party receives the appropriate refund of payments made). AXS reserves the right to charge your account balance and/or credit card any amounts necessary to provide refunds for seats purchased and re-sold to another party. You agree to authorise said charges and to pay in full. In the event you are entitled to a direct refund and you have requested such a refund, we may automatically issue you a refund to the credit card you used to purchase the ticket.
In an effort to give all interested customers an opportunity to purchase seating and/or parking tights, or tickets for an event, venues and promoters often set limits on the number of seating and/or parking rights, or tickets one customer or household is allowed to purchase. You will be advised of any limits on such tickets by a posting on the "Buy" page for the event, or by a system limitation on the number of tickets you may purchase during your online session. Tickets purchased for an event during multiple online sessions on our website may be totalled to ensure that any venue- or promoter-imposed limitations are not exceeded. If you exceed these limits, your orders may not be fulfilled.
The availability of tickets and/or parking rights are subject to change. We may act as a sales agent for event promoters, event producers and/or venues. We do not control the number of tickets and/or parking rights or the location of seats or parking spaces that are made available for purchase. Sometimes event promoters, event producers and/or venues release additional tickets even after tickets to attend the event have gone on sale. Tickets and/or parking rights are also "locked" (not available) for a short time while customers complete their purchase. If a customer does not complete his/her purchase, previously locked tickets and/or parking rights are released and made available for purchase. For these reasons and others, the tickets and/or parking rights available for a given event can and do change rapidly. If you are unable to find tickets or parking rights, please check back again. Once your purchase has been completed, we will not exchange or refund your order, even if additional tickets or parking rights become available at a later date.
If the amount that you pay for a ticket is obviously incorrect, regardless of whether it is an error in a price posted on this website or otherwise communicated to you, or you are able to order tickets before their scheduled on-sale date, then we reserve the right, at our sole discretion, to cancel your order and refund to you the amount that you paid. This policy will apply regardless of how the error occurred.
By purchasing or accepting tickets to an event, you agree to be bound by the terms and conditions and other rules of the specific event and the venue where the specific event is being held. Links to venue and/or event terms and conditions that are specific to use of tickets to such events or at such venues can be found within each event and venue’s branded area. We recommend that you review the official terms and conditions and other rules of each event and venue to which you hold tickets, as may be available directly from the event or venue.
When you purchase tickets or merchandise from us or through our website, or when you become a registered user with us to facilitate future transactions, you are communicating with us electronically and by doing so, you consent to receive electronic communications from us regarding a purchase you are making or an event to which you have agreed to purchase tickets. Additionally, by consenting to accept electronic communications from us, you also agree that all agreements, disclosures and notices, including any updates to this Agreement, may be provided to you electronically and that an electronic communication from us satisfies any legal requirement that a communication be in writing.
When you purchase tickets or merchandise from us or through our website, or when you become a registered user with us, you agree that you have established a business or personal relationship with AXS Europe Ltd. and its affiliates and you consent to receive email notices or advertisements from us and/or our clients in the future about events, products or services that may be of interest to you. If you are not interested in receiving email notices or advertisements from us, you should unsubscribe now (or email us at [email protected] with "Unsubscribe" in the subject line)
Your tickets will be delivered to you as indicated at the time of purchase, most frequently via mobile delivery to your AXS account. Certain events may have restricted delivery options, as well as delayed delivery windows (for example, the tickets may not be delivered until 10 days prior to the event). AXS is not able to specify the exact date of delivery for each event, so please allow as much time as possible for your tickets to arrive. Shipping information, if any, is provided at checkout. In the rare instance that tickets are mailed, they will be sent to the address provided by the purchaser at the time of purchase. AXS is not responsible for failure of delivery or any losses incurred as a result of a purchaser’s failure to provide an accurate address. If you have not received your tickets five (5) days before the event for which you purchased, please contact us at [email protected] or +44 0203 481 5506.
There may be circumstances in which we make your tickets available for your collection at the box office of the venue for which the event will be held. We will notify you by email if this box office collection is required. In order to collect your tickets at the box office, you will be asked for order confirmation, proof of identity and the debit or credit card used for the transaction. If you are unable to provide this information, the box office may refuse to provide your tickets to you and we will not be responsible for your inability to enter the event.
All information that you provide in connection with your purchase from the Service (including your name, address, credit card number, and other identifying information) must be accurate, current and complete. You understand that you must comply with all applicable laws associated with the sale or purchase of tickets to entertainment events (including resale restrictions), which may be subject to application laws, regulations or ordinances.
You acknowledge that complying with laws is your responsibility. YOU AGREE NOT TO HOLD US LIABLE FOR YOUR FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH ANY LAW OR OUR FAILURE TO NOTIFY YOU OF, OR PROPERLY APPLY, ANY LAW. WE WILL COMPLY WITH LAW ENFORCEMENT AND MAY PROVIDE THEM WITH ALL INFORMATION YOU SUBMIT TO US TO ASSIST IN ANY INVESTIGATION OR PROSECUTION THEY MAY CONDUCT. Remember a venue operator or event producer, in order to prevent ticket misuse, may require the person purchasing tickets to be the person that uses the ticket. Therefore, you may be required to produce identification or a credit card in order to pick up or use the tickets purchased.
You understand and agree that we shall have the right to provide any information you submit on or through the Service to third parties for purposes of facilitating the completion of any purchase made by you, on your behalf or through your account. Verification of information may be required prior to the acknowledgment or completion of any purchase. You understand and agree that we shall have the right to provide any information you submit on or through the Service to third parties for purposes of facilitating the completion of any purchase made by you, on your behalf or through your account. Verification of information may be required prior to the acknowledgment or completion of any purchase.
Descriptions or images of, or references to, products or services on the Service do not imply our endorsement of such products or services. We reserve the right, without prior notification, to change such descriptions or references; to honour, or impose conditions on the honouring of, any coupon, coupon code, promotional code or other similar promotions; to terminate, suspend any or limit any user’s ability to make purchases through the Service. Price and availability of any product or service on the Service are subject to change without notice. Unless otherwise provided, there are no refunds or exchanges for any ticket purchases.
Tickets for events are typically sold through a variety of locations in addition to the Service. Some distribution points (such as the venue itself) may have access to different tickets. There are typically limits on the number of tickets that you may purchase for any event. Please remember that tickets for popular events often sell out quickly, but that on occasion additional tickets may be put on sale for events that were once listed as sold out and there may be Resale tickets available. The Service does not control ticket inventory or availability. In addition, AXS reserves the right to refuse to complete a transaction, refuse service, and/or cancel an order for reasons such as suspected credit card fraud, violation of terms, ticket limits, or any other reason.
AXS may send a summary of your purchase to the email address provided during purchase. You should receive a confirmation after concluding your purchase. If you do not receive a confirmation from us, if you receive an error message, or if you discover an error in the information provided, contact Customer Service immediately at [email protected] or +44 0203 481 5506 to ensure your transaction was completed and that your information is correct. The Service cannot be responsible for transactions that were not completed or for assumptions that a transaction was completed even though you did not receive a confirmation.
Please note that orders are processed only after a billing address, and/or other billing information, has been verified. Occasionally, we receive incorrect billing or credit card account information for a ticket order that can delay processing and delivery. In these cases, customer service will attempt to contact you, using the information provided at the time of purchase. If customer service is unable to reach you after its initial attempt, the Service may cancel your order and release your tickets without further notice or attempted notice to you. Information sent to the email address you provide may be deemed to be delivered to you, regardless whether you check your email, provide an incorrect address, or if the message is marked as “spam.”
