  • Ticketmaster takes PayPal as a valid form of payment, meaning you can use your PayPal account to buy tickets.
  • PayPal can’t be used for reselling tickets, however. It’s limited to the initial purchase only.
  • You’ll also need to use the Ticketmaster.com website – PayPal purchasing isn’t available through the Ticketmaster app.

PayPal is increasingly available as a payment method everywhere you shop online.

The latest place you can use PayPal: Ticketmaster.

While you can’t use PayPal to resell or purchase resold tickets, you can pay via PayPal for the initial Ticketmaster purchase.

You’ll also need to use the Ticketmaster.com website for the transaction, as PayPal purchases aren’t available through the app.

Here’s how to go about using PayPal for your next purchase on Ticketmaster.com.

How to use PayPal on Ticketmaster

1. Open Safari or your preferred browser, and go to Ticketmaster.com.

2. Find and select your tickets, and click “Next.”

3. Scroll to “Payment.” There will be an option that reads, “Back to Stored Cards.” Select it.

You only get a few minutes to complete your purchase after you select your tickets.

4. Under the words “Or Pay With,” click on the PayPal logo.

You won't be able to see this option if the tickets are being resold, rather than sold directly by Ticketmaster.

5. You’ll be prompted to sign in to your PayPal account, and – if you haven’t already – will then be prompted to connect a card to your PayPal account.

You'll be asked to connect a card to your PayPal account if you haven't already.
