Frequently Asked Questions About Resale

Robyn Marais Updated by Robyn Marais

Why can't I resell my ticket on Howler?

For some events, Resale is not an option. This is because the use of Resale is determined by event organisers and can be turned off at any time. If there’s no “sell ticket” or “buy on Resale” option available, it means that Resale has not been turned on yet or the event organiser has opted not to enable it.

You cannot yet resell tickets that were not bought on the Howler platform. - Watch this space.

How long it take to get my money?
