How To Share StubHub Tickets

Have you ever had extra tickets after friends back out last minute? Or maybe plans changed and you can no longer attend an upcoming event? It happens to all of us. Luckily, StubHub makes it incredibly easy to transfer and share any eligible tickets directly with friends.

The ticket transfer process only takes minutes right within your StubHub account. You can securely send mobile tickets to anyone in just a few clicks. StubHub conveniently tracks the entire ticket transfer process from start to finish.

This guide will walk through exactly how to share StubHub ticket purchases with friends, family or even buyers:

When To Transfer StubHub Tickets?

As a frequent StubHub user, you may encounter situations where transferring ticket purchases makes sense:

  • You bought tickets for a group but now have extras as some friends can no longer attend.
  • You can no longer go to an event and don’t want the tickets to go to waste.
  • You purchased the wrong event date and want to sell tickets at face value.
  • You want to share great seats for an event with friends interested in attending.

For all these cases, the ability to directly transfer StubHub tickets to others is invaluable.

Check If Your Tickets Are Transferrable

The first step is always to confirm if the tickets you purchased from StubHub allow transfers. Certain venues, teams or artists enforce restrictions around reselling and transfers.

But have no fear, it’s easy to check!

Simply view your purchased ticket order on StubHub and see if there is a “Manage Transfers” button shown. If visible, then you can securely transfer tickets directly to friends or buyers.

If no button displayed, unfortunately those particular tickets can’t be transferred. All you can do is request a refund or try to resell them if time allows.

Choose Friends To Transfer Tickets

Once you confirm transfers are allowed, it’s time to decide who gets the tickets! Think about friends, family and contacts who expressed interest in attending the event.

Also consider how tech savvy they are to accept mobile transfers. Less technical folks may prefer you print tickets than trying to walk them through digital transfers.

I always prioritize transferring tickets to close friends I know will use them over random buyers. It ensures no tickets go to waste!

Access Your StubHub Account

The ticket transfer process is handled entirely online within your StubHub account.

First, pull up StubHub on your mobile device or computer. If you don’t already have an account, you’ll need to create one first using your email and password.

Once setup, simply log into your StubHub account dashboard. Navigate to “My Tickets” and then select “Orders” to view previous purchases.

Locate The Specific Ticket Order

On the orders page, browse past StubHub purchases and upcoming events to find the order with the extra tickets you want to transfer.

Make sure you select the correct order if you have multiple similar events or ticket purchases. Failing to choose the right order will result in transferring random tickets!

Once located, select “Manage Transfers” next to the order listing. Then the transfer wizard will begin!

Enter Your Friend’s Email Address

After opening the transfer popup, first carefully enter the recipient’s email address two times. This ensures no typos sneak in.

Next, select exactly how many ticket(s) from that order you wish to send them. For example, if you purchased 4 tickets but only want to transfer 2, choose “2”.

Confirm whether the name and email address match who you intend to transfer the StubHub tickets to.

Review Transfer Details

Before completing the transfer, thoroughly review the details shown and ensure:

  • Recipient name and email is accurate
  • Number of tickets transferring matches intended amount
  • The correct upcoming event and date displays

Finally, check the box confirming you understand the transfer terms and process.

When ready, click “Send” to finalize and process sending over the StubHub tickets!

Recipient Accepts The Transfer

After transferring StubHub tickets, your friend must complete a few quick steps to officially accept them:

  • Ask them to look for an email from StubHub titled “You’ve Got Tickets!”
  • They need to select the prominent “Accept Tickets” button shown.
  • A StubHub login page appears. If they don’t have an existing account, they must create one first.
  • Finally, under “My Tickets” in their account, they’ll see the order you transferred over!

Once your friend accepts the order, the StubHub tickets are permanently in their possession. They take full ownership at this point.

Log In To Accept Transfers

Let’s talk about the transfer process from the recipient’s perspective.

After receiving the “You’ve Got Tickets!” email from a sender, first open the email and select “Accept Tickets”. This brings you to StubHub’s login page.

If you already have a StubHub user account, simply enter your login email and password. But don’t have an account yet? No worries!

Follow the short wizard to create a new StubHub account using your email address. Make sure to pick a strong password you can remember.

View Transferred Tickets In Account

Right after accepting the transfer invite and gaining access to your StubHub account, you’ll see the new ticket order waiting under “My Tickets”!

Select the order to review specifics like the event name, venue, date, seats and more. You now officially own the tickets to use as you please!

Feel free to transfer them again to someone else, sell on StubHub if desired or directly use the mobile tickets to access the upcoming event.
