  8. When you're satisfied with your chosen settings, select Submit Listing at the bottom of the payment box to finalize your listing.

Ticketmaster adds your tickets to the total pool of available tickets for the event. Potential buyers see your tickets alongside the original ones for sale normally found on the website. Of course, if the event is sold out, you'll be in a better position to sell.

Ticketmaster verifies sales before disbursing your money to you. They wait an average of seven to ten days to confirm the sale, then send your deposit in two smaller payments.

That's all there is for you to do. Now sit back and hope your tickets sell quickly.
