Yes, it is possible to add multiple cards to your Ticketmaster account. Ticketmaster allows users to store multiple credit, debit, and gift cards to make purchasing tickets quick and easy. Here’s what you need to know about adding multiple cards to your Ticketmaster account.
Adding a New Card
To start, you’ll need to sign in to your Ticketmaster account online or in the mobile app. Then follow these steps:
- Click on your profile icon or name in the top right corner
- Select “Payment Options” or “Saved Cards”
- Click the “Add New Card” button
- Enter your card details including card number, expiration date, and billing address
- Click “Save” to store the card on your account
You can repeat this process to continue adding new cards to your Ticketmaster account. There is no limit on the number of cards you can store.
Switching Between Cards
When you go to purchase tickets, you’ll have the option to select which saved card you want to use. Simply choose the appropriate card from the dropdown menu during checkout. Keep in mind:
- Ticketmaster will default to the card you used most recently
- You can designate a specific card as your “default” in your account settings
- Gift cards will be automatically applied if you have any stored in your account
So when you’re checking out, just be sure to look at which card is selected and switch to another one if needed.
Editing or Removing Cards
You can manage the cards you have stored in your Ticketmaster account at any time. Here’s how:
- Access your “Payment Options” or “Saved Cards” section
- Click “Edit” or the trash icon next to a card to edit or delete it
- For edits, change any information and click “Save”
- For deletions, confirm you want to remove the card
Keep your payment information updated by editing cards if anything changes, like an expiration date or billing address. And remove any cards you no longer use or have on file.
Benefits of Storing Multiple Cards
There are a few useful reasons to store multiple cards on your Ticketmaster account:
- Convenience – Cards are stored for fast checkout without needing to re-enter details
- Backup – You have another payment option if a card is declined or expired
- Rewards – Can choose different cards to maximize points or cash back
- Gifting – Can store gift cards sent to you by others
Just keep in mind that Ticketmaster allows a maximum of eight cards to be stored at once. So if you’ve hit the limit, you’ll need to delete an existing card before being able to add another new one.
Tips for Managing Multiple Cards
When you have several cards on file with Ticketmaster, it’s a good idea to stay organized. Here are some tips:
- Name your cards in your account to remember which is which
- Set your primary or most used card as the default
- Delete old or unused cards to declutter your account
- Periodically update card details if they change over time
- Review charges to make sure they are going to the correct card
Keeping your payment methods current and clearly labeled will make the checkout process smooth and hassle-free every time.
Can Multiple People Use the Same Card?
Tickets purchased together by a group are charged to a single card. So if you’re buying for multiple people, even in separate transactions, the same card must be used.
However, each Ticketmaster account and profile has separate stored cards. So if you share an account with someone, you can each add your own individual cards to the same account. You’ll just need to be sure to select the appropriate card at checkout depending on who is purchasing the tickets.
Using Multiple Cards for a Single Purchase
Unfortunately, Ticketmaster does not allow you to split a single ticket purchase across multiple cards. You can only charge one card per transaction.
So if you are looking to split costs with other people, you will need to coordinate:
- Agree who will make the Ticketmaster purchase
- Determine how costs will be divided up
- Collect funds from others and charge one card for full amount
- Reimburse the cardholder their share afterwards
While slightly inconvenient, this does prevent issues that could occur from splitting charges mid-transaction.
Using Multiple Accounts
With Ticketmaster, you can only manage the cards stored within a single account. However, it is fine to have cards stored across multiple Ticketmaster accounts.
Some reasons you may want multiple accounts include:
- Separating work and personal purchases
- Distributing charges across different cards
- Keeping account activity separate from others you share cards with
Downsides are that you’ll need to login and out to switch accounts and manage cards across multiple accounts. But for some users, the benefits outweigh the minor inconvenience.
Changing Billing Address on Stored Cards
If you need to update the billing address for a card you have stored with Ticketmaster, here’s how to do it:
- Go to “Payment Options” or “Saved Cards”
- Click “Edit” next to the card
- Edit the billing address fields with the new address
- Click “Save” to update the details
This will change the billing address Ticketmaster has associated with that payment method moving forward. Just be sure the billing address matches what your card provider has on file for that card.
Using Prepaid Cards
Yes, you can store prepaid or gift cards on your Ticketmaster account. These will function just like any other card:
- Add gift card using the card number and other details
- Select the gift card when making a ticket purchase
- Ticketmaster will apply gift card funds during checkout
One tip for gift cards is to use them up fully in one purchase rather than spreading across multiple transactions. Unused balances under $30 expire after 12 months of no activity.
Issues you may encounter when managing multiple cards with Ticketmaster include:
- Card declined – Verify details are correct, check expiration date, or use a different card
- Wrong card charged – Double check you selected the right card at checkout
- Can’t delete card – May need to remove as payment method for Facebook first
- Charged multiple times – Contact support if you notice duplicate charges
Contact Ticketmaster customer service right away if you notice any errors or problems with cards stored in your account. They can investigate issues and resolve them promptly.
Having multiple stored cards makes the Ticketmaster purchasing process quick, easy, and convenient. You can add several credit, debit, prepaid, and gift cards to the same account and simply select the appropriate one at checkout. Keep your payment methods organized by naming cards, setting defaults, and removing old ones. This allows seamless ticket purchases using your preferred payment method every time.
