Showpass does not support or condone the reselling of tickets through either private sales or secondary markets, as this practice goes against Section 16 of our restrictions in our terms of service (see below for the full excerpt).
The ticket transfer function is in place to facilitate a safe hand off of tickets, in the case that one party can no longer make the event and they wish to send a friend the ticket instead.
Unfortunately Showpass cannot guarantee the validity of tickets, or that tickets are not duplicates being given to multiple buyers, if the tickets are being bought and sold outside of our platform.
If you notice any suspicious activity please reach out to our team at firstname.lastname@example.org
