Who You Are Buying From
Skip the Box office acts as the agent to those who are promoting or otherwise providing the events for which you purchase tickets, such as venues, festival organizers, leagues, artist representatives, charities, and promoters (“Event Providers”). If you purchase a ticket through Skip the Box Office, you will either be purchasing that ticket from: the Event Provider.
Pricing and Availability
Tickets for popular events may sell out quickly. Occasionally, additional tickets may be available prior to the event. However, Skip the Box Office does not control this inventory or its availability. In some cases, Skip the Box Office or other distribution channels may receive additional, subsequent allocations of tickets for distribution, which may arguably be of similar or higher desirability than those sold on Skip the Box Office, or may be offered for sale at lower prices than prices charged on Skip the Box Office.
If you do not receive a confirmation number (in the form of an email) after submitting payment information, or if you experience an error message or service interruption after submitting payment information, it is your responsibility to confirm with Skip the Box Office Customer Service whether or not your order has been placed. Only you may be aware of any problems that may occur during the purchase process. Skip the Box Office will not be responsible for losses (monetary or otherwise) if you assume that an order was not placed because you failed to receive confirmation.

Refunds and Exchanges
ALL TICKETS AND ITEMS PURCHASED THROUGH SKIP THE BOX OFFICE Office ARE FINAL SALE AND ARE NON-REFUNDABLE EXCEPT IN THE CASE OF CANCELLED, POSTPONED, OR RE-SCHEDULED EVENTS SUBJECT TO THE CONTITIONS BELOW.
Before purchasing tickets, carefully review your event and seat choices if available. Please note that most events on Skip the Box Officeare General Admission which means no assigned seating. Policies set forth by our clients, including venues, and theatres, generally prohibit Skip the Box Office from issuing exchanges or refunds after a ticket has been purchased or lost, stolen, damaged or destroyed tickets. You agree that you will not attempt to evade, avoid, or circumvent those prohibitions in any manner with regard to tickets you purchased. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, you will not contact Skip the Box Office to seek a refund or exchange from Skip the Box Office when Skip the Box Office is prohibited from providing one by its clients, and you will not dispute or otherwise seek a “chargeback” from the company whose credit card you used to purchase tickets from the Site. Should you do so, your tickets may be cancelled, and Skip the Box Office may, in its sole discretion, refuse to honour pending and future ticket purchases made from all credit card accounts or online accounts on which such chargebacks have been made, and may prohibit all persons in whose name the credit card accounts exist and any person who accesses any associated online account or credit card or who otherwise breaches this provision from using the Site.
If Skip the Box Office issues you a refund for a ticket whether the event is postponed or cancelled, it will issue a refund of the ticket’s face value paid but not on the facility fee and/or service fee/ processing charge. Under no circumstances will any of the surcharge fees or amounts be refunded. If a refund is issued, it will be issued using the same method of payment that was used to purchase the tickets. If a credit card was used to make the refunded purchase, then only that actual credit card will receive the credit for the refund.Skip the Box Office will not be liable for travel or any other expenses that you or anyone else incurs in connection with a cancelled or postponed event.
Skip the Box Office typically only offers refunds and/or exchanges based on the promoter’s or venue’s instructions. Skip the Box Office is not obligated to issue a refund except to the extent that the promoter, venue, or event provider responsible for bringing you the event (1) instructs us to issue a refund, and (2) provides us with the funds necessary to issue refunds. In order to receive a refund or an exchange that may be offered, you will have to comply with the promoter’s, team’s or venue’s instructions or deadlines, which, along with the decision about whether or not to issue a refund or an exchange, may be at the promoter’s, team’s or venue’s discretion.

Convenience Charges, Service, and Order Processing Fees
Tickets purchased on Skip the Box Office are subject to a per ticket service/order processing fee which is non-refundable, including events that are cancelled or postponed. All sales are final. In the event of a cancellation, Skip the Box Office will refund the face value of the ticket but not the service fee.
Cancelled and Postponed Events
Occasionally, events are cancelled, postponed or rescheduled by the promoter, or Event Providers. Should this occur, Skip the Box Office will attempt to contact you by email to inform you of refund or exchange procedures for that event. Typically, if the event is postponed, you will have up to 72 hours prior to the new event date to request a refund if the new scheduled event is not convenient for you. For exact instructions on any cancelled or postponed event, please check the event information online or contact us. If you purchase a ticket through Skip the Box Officeand a refund is issued, then Skip the Box Office will most likely give you a refund by issuing a credit to the credit card that you used to purchase that ticket. Service fees are 100% not refundable and only the face value of the ticket will be refunded.
Distressed Event Definition
The ticket buyer agrees an event can become distressed and understands there are circumstances beyond the control of the Event Promoter that could arise that could impact the event prior to its conclusion. To further clarify, a distressed event is defined as: an event that that takes place and is being delivered as planned and advertised; where your ticket gained you entry into the venue or festival; where the event is running as scheduled, but due to any number of unforeseen circumstances, the event could not be completed.
Opening and Headlining Acts
Opening acts, guests, or support acts, may sometimes tour with headlining performers. Skip the Box Officeis not always made aware of opening acts or the length of their performances. These opening acts are subject to change or cancellation at any time without notice. No refund will be owed if an opening act is changed or cancelled. If you attend an event that takes place but for whatever reason the headlining or co-headlining act does not perform or make an appearance and the event becomes distressed, meaning the majority of event took place as promised but for unforeseen circumstances and misfortune, the headliners and support acts chose not to fulfill their responsibilities, Skip the Box Office will not issue refunds unless authorized by the Event Promoter. It is the Event Promoter’s responsibility to outline the terms of their refund policy for the distressed event by providing Skip the Box Office with written direction as to whether or not ticket buyers are to be full refunded, partially refunded, or not refunded at all. In any case, the service fees paid to Skip the Box Office will NOT be refunded.
Ticket buyers agree that when a ticket to a festival is purchased, the ticket buyer is buying a ticket to the entire festival, not a ticket to see a specific artist, performer, speaker, or attraction. Festivals have the right to alter their line up and activities prior or on the day of the festival. No refunds will be issued if the festival takes place and any part of it’s published line up, attractions, or artist line up including headliners do not perform.
Billing Information Verification
Orders are processed only after billing information and the CVV Security number has been verified. Occasionally, we receive incorrect credit card account information for a ticket order that will cause an order to be cancelled. There are also instances where your credit card will get declined even if your information and available credit are correct. In these cases, please contact your credit card issuing company before making another purchase attempt. In most cases, they will remove the security filter and allow your transaction to take place.
Tickets purchased on Skip the Box Office are issued as eTickets that you print from home/work. Once you purchase a ticket successfully, Skip the Box Office will send you a confirmation email and provide a link to download and print the tickets. Tickets will not be mailed. Always bring your eTicket and a government ID to the door or gate in order to verify your purchase.
Pricing and Other Errors
If the amount you pay for a ticket is incorrect regardless of whether because of an error in a price posted on this website or otherwise communicated to you, or you are able to order a ticket before its scheduled on-sale or presale date or you are able to order a ticket that was not supposed to have been released for sale, then: Skip the Box Office will have the right to cancel that ticket (or the order for that ticket) and refund to you the amount that you paid.
