CHARGED.fm Ticket Buyer, Seller and Event Coordinator Policy and Guarantees.
We have consulted with, polled and asked over a hundred ticket brokers and box office professionals on how CHARGED.fm can make the safest ticketing experience for both buyers and sellers. In developing our systems we wanted to be more than PCI compliant and pass every level of customer security for your protection.
Ticket(s) will be delivered to buyer in time for the event.
At any time you can adjust your ticket prices according to marketplace prices.
Should anything go wrong, the event was cancelled and not rescheduled or other, you will be able to request a full refund on the cost of your ticket.
You will receive payment from CHARGED.fm for all ticket orders you confirm and fulfill (payment will be issued 4 days after event.)
What does GoSafe™ do for you?
It provides you with a peace of mind. We don't give the ticket seller access to your payment until four (4) days after the event has taken place so you have total security in knowing your purchase is protected should anything go wrong.
With our GoSafe™ Guarantee, we protect our Buyers.
CHARGED.fm guarantees all Buyers the following:
- A fun and secure environment for buyers to purchase tickets for events.
- Ticket(s) will be delivered to seller in time for the event.
- You can let us know if there was any issue using your ticket up until four (4) days after the event. It doesnŐt have to be the next day.
- Should anything go wrong, the event was canceled and not rescheduled, or other, you will be able to request a full refund on the cost of your ticket.
What our GoSafe™ Guarantee does for you, the buyer:
All Buyers under the GoSafe™ guarantee will receive the following benefits under the following conditions:
If you do not receive your purchased tickets before the event:
If you have purchased a mail delivery ticket and the event has passed without any delivery attempt, CHARGED.fm will issue the Buyer a refund for the full cost of the tickets, including service fees and shipping and handling charges.
If tickets received are not the same as the Buyer committed to purchase:
You can file a complaint and CHARGED.fm will review the claim to determine whether the Buyer received the same or better tickets than the tickets that the Buyer committed to purchase. If CHARGED.fm concludes that the Buyer did not receive the same or better tickets, CHARGED.fm will, at its discretion, issue a refund to the Buyer for the full cost of the tickets, including service fees and shipping and handling charges, following CHARGED.fm's receipt of the ticket from the Buyer. CHARGED.fm may, in its sole discretion, deem tickets received as the same or better than those the Buyer committed to purchase.
If tickets are not accepted by the venue and prove invalid:
CHARGED.fm must be notified by the Buyer within four (4) calendar days following the date of the event. We will confirm with the venue that the tickets were indeed invalid and unused. Upon confirmation, CHARGED.fm will issue the Buyer a refund for the full cost of the tickets, including service fees.
If the event is canceled:
If an event is indefinitely cancelled and will not be rescheduled, you can contact CHARGED.fm to request a refund on your tickets. CHARGED.fm will offer the Buyer the opportunity to return their tickets for a canceled event within four (4) calendar days in order to receive a refund for the full cost of the tickets, including service fees and shipping and handling charges. CHARGED.fm, in its sole discretion, will determine when an event has been canceled.
If the event is postponed:
If the event is rescheduled for a later date and/or time, the Buyer may choose to list the tickets on CHARGED.fm for resale or use the tickets on the rescheduled date/time. If a rescheduled event requires replacement tickets, the buyer can seek to obtain the replacement tickets from the Seller or directly from the venue if permissible. If a postponed event is only offering limited replacement tickets for the rescheduled date/time, CHARGED.fm, at its discretion, may treat the event canceled.
For Social Ticketing events
In the case of Social Ticketing events (user generated events) in all the above situations, the buyer must first contact the Event Coordinator to resolve the issue using the "contact host" button located on the event page. All requests that come directly to CHARGED.fm will be directed to the Event Coordinator. If the buyer has already contacted the Event Coordinator and the issue is not resolved, the buyer can file a dispute with CHARGED.fm against the Event Coordinator. The dispute will be investigated and settled according to the discretion of CHARGED.fm according to this guarantee.
*Please note that if the sale was completed using an Alternate Payment Method at checkout, such as Paypal, or if checkout was completed in any site other than CHARGED.fm, we do not have the power to issue a refund as the funds were collected directly by that Event Coordinator or ticketing agent. We only have the ability to issue a refund if the checkout was completed solely in CHARGED.fm.
All claims will be investigated by CHARGED.fm. Based on the information gathered in that investigation, CHARGED.fm will resolve the issue on a case-by-case basis. The dollar amount a Buyer may be awarded and the number of claims a Buyer may file in a calendar year may be limited by CHARGED.fm, which reserves the right to do so. Please note that all sales are final and in order to receive a refund one of the above conditions must be met. Any Buyer, Seller, or Event Coordinator who attempts to abuse the GoSafe™ Guarantee may have their account suspended or may have their registrations permanently canceled. In this case, CHARGED.fm will report any such abuse to the appropriate legal authorities.
