What do Eventbrite tickets look like?

Tickets are sent as a PDF attachment with order confirmation emails by default, but we also have mobile tickets. View an example PDF ticket below or click eblink{here=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=3281} to view an example email order confirmation. Also, if the organizer set up tax and selected to issue a tax invoice, this too will be included in the order confirmation email as a PDF attachment.

TIP: By default, the "Message to be displayed on PDF ticket" is "Please PRINT and bring this ticket to the event entrance." Organizers can eblink{customize this message=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=3281}, so this can vary by event.

PRO TIP: Want to see what tickets will look like for an event you're organizing? eblink{Use our access code feature to create a free hidden ticket=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=3922} for your event. Then register when your event is published to see the order confirmation email with PDF tickets attached.

NOTE: If you registered for an event and don't see the option to download a PDF ticket, the organizer did not select the option for tickets to be generated. eblink{Contact the event organizer=>https://www.eventbrite.com/support/articleredirect?anum=3275} to confirm whether a physical ticket and/or copy of the order confirmation email is needed for entry, or if you can simply show the ticket on your mobile device.

PDF tickets have a unique barcode and data recognition (QR-like) code. PDF tickets show the Event Name/Title, Date/Time, Location, Order Info, Ticket Type registered, Attendee Name, and Payment Status.
