How to use the Eventbrite Android app

Wherever you're located, you can use the Eventbrite app for Android (Android version 5.0 and above) to find, purchase tickets to, save, and even share events that you’re interested in. You can also use the app to reference tickets to events you're registered to attend.

TIP: If you’re organizing an event on Eventbrite, you can use our eblink{Eventbrite Organizer=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=5870} mobile app—our box office solution for your events.

PRO TIP: You may need to eblink{log in to your Eventbrite account=>https://www.eventbrite.com/login} on the web to perform certain tasks. For example, on the Android app, you can’t change your Eventbrite email address or password. You also can’t cancel your registration for a free event.

NOTE: eblink{Help is available for iPhone users, too=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=11000}.

Find events to attend

The eblink{Eventbrite app=>https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.eventbrite.attendee&hl=en} makes it easy to find great upcoming events near you. Try browsing recommended ("Top picks for you") and "trending" events in your area. You can also “follow” your favorite event organizers to make sure you’re in the know.

Purchase tickets to events

Buying tickets on the Eventbrite app is quick and simple. Register for an event with just a few taps and just like online orders, we'll send a confirmation email as a receipt for your order. Please note: You may view some events on the app that are not ticketed by Eventbrite. The ticket purchase flows for those events may differ from the description below. Eventbrite takes the security and privacy of your billing information seriously. All online payments are processed over a secure connection using a PCI-compliant gateway.

1. Tap “Tickets.”

Select a quantity next to your desired ticket type, then tap “Order Now” or “Register.” (“Order Now” appears for events that require payment; “Register” appears for free events.)

NOTE: If you’re registering for an event with reserved seating, you can only eblink{pick or choose your seat from a desktop=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=8100}. When you register from a mobile device, you can eblink{purchase your seats with the "best available seat" or specific selling order selected by the organizer=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=9904}.

3. Enter your payment information.

Add or select a payment method, and enter any other details the organizer is requesting for their event. Then confirm the information entered is correct before proceeding.

TIP: If you’re registering for a free event, you won’t have to enter any payment information—you’ll see a button to complete the order instead.

PRO TIP: Tap to check the box next "Save billing and payment info" to save your eblink{credit/debit card=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=3317} to your Eventbrite account—making purchasing tickets even faster and easier in the future! eblink{Learn more about privacy and security=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=3662}.

Find tickets you ordered

The Eventbrite app makes it easy to reference tickets you've purchased to events. Show your ticket to scan for entry (if the event organizer has tickets enabled for their event), see details about each event you're registered for, or get in touch with your event organizer.

1. View your tickets.

Tap the profile icon on the far-right side of the bottom toolbar. Under "Tickets," upcoming events show first. Swipe up to reference tickets registered to past events.

2. Show your ticket to scan.

Under “Tickets,” tap on the ticket icon for the event to reveal your QR code.

TIP: If you purchased more than one ticket, an arrow shows next to the digital ticket barcode. Tap to reference additional tickets on your order.

PRO TIP: Under the “Date” section on your ticket, click “Add to calendar” to add a reminder for the event to your default calendar. Information should already be included on your calendar reminder, but feel free to edit to add any other information you'd like before saving.

NOTE: Organizers can scan your printed-or-digital ticket barcode for entry, although you still may be asked for identification. Check your order confirmation email to make sure you have everything you need to enter your event.

3. Contact the event organizer.

Tap on the organizer’s name from any page to view their profile. Then tap on the three-dots icon in the top-right hand corner, and tap “Contact.” You can also access “Contact the event host” from your mobile ticket by tapping the three-dots icon. This will open up a message box where you can submit your question or request.

TIP: If you need to cancel a registration for a free event, you'll need to do this directly on Eventbrite.com. eblink{Learn all the ways you can contact the event organizer=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=3275}.
