Ticket Tomato (“we”, “our”, “us”, or “Ticketing Agent”) is an online ticketing company which processes ticket purchases and provides ticketing and registration services to Promoters for specific Events or a series of Events. The Ticketing Agent is not affiliated with any Promoter, venue, service provider, producer, or any other company or individual who offers or provides goods or services to a Promoter. The Ticketing Agent is not responsible, and cannot be held liable, for any action, omission, or event related to or arising from an Event or services a Promotor lists on our website. You can contact the Ticketing Agent directly at:
Event Organizer (Promoter) (“you” or “Promoter”) is you and any person or entity associated with any account created on the Ticketing Agent’s website and any person or entity for whom an Event is listed on our website or for whom tickets are issued or sold though the Ticketing Agent’s website to Ticket Holders, and any authorized agent of the foregoing, including others you engage to provide goods or services to you in relation to your Event.
Event (the “Event” or your “Event”) refers to each of the specific events or services that you are listing on the Ticketing Agent’s website, and includes current, future, and prior events and all services related to any such events.
Event Attendee (Ticket Holder) (the “Ticket Holder”) includes without limitation the person or entity who registers for or purchases tickets to your Event, all persons for whom a ticket is issued for your Event, and all persons who hold a valid ticket for your Event. The Ticketing Agent may, at their sole discretion, chose who—between a ticket purchaser and a ticket holder—will receive any refund, exchange, replacement, or similar benefit with respect to a ticket.
Authorized Seller; Compliance with Law
Promoter represents and warrants that they are authorized to sell or issue tickets for the Event and will comply with all applicable law in selling or issuing tickets for the Event. Promoter further represents and warrants that all information provided will be true, complete, and correct, and that Promoter will promptly update all information if it changes.
Fraudulent representation (including unlawful ticket sales or the facilitation of unlawful ticket sales) or a failure to update significant information by a Promotor, or of an Event, is a criminal offense, which allows and authorizes the Ticketing Agent to issue full face value refunds to Ticket Holders at your sole expense. The Ticketing Agent may (and very likely will) prohibit you from using Ticketing Agent’s services for the Event and for any future Events, assist law enforcement in prosecuting any fraudulent use of the Ticketing Agent’s services, and seek compensation for damages caused by any fraudulent representation.
Ticket and Registration Pricing; Ticket and Service Fees
Unless agreed by the parties prior to the start of ticket sales or registrations, Ticketing Agent provides Promoter with ticket sales and registration services with no initial upfront costs or fees. The Ticket Holder will pay all ticket and service fees. Ticket and service fees will be charged in addition to the ticket price, unless Promoter instructs Ticketing Agent to include the ticket and service fees in the ticket price. Promoter is solely responsible setting ticket prices. In general, the ticketing and service fees are as follows:
Service Fee Range: $1.75 to $5 per ticket
Handling (Credit Card Processing) Fee: actual cost, generally about 3.5% of the ticket price
Hard Copy Boca Ticket Printing Fee: $.20 per ticket
Promoter is solely responsible for payment of any sales, use, transfer, value added, excise, or similar taxes imposed by any local, state, or federal taxing authority, or any other taxing authority with jurisdiction. Promoter is responsible for instructing Ticketing Agent to collect any such applicable taxes and the applicable tax rate. Promoter may choose to include such taxes in the ticket price, if allowed by applicable law. Promoter will cause to be prepared and timely filed all required tax returns and other documentation, at its own expense, related to any such tax. Promoter will provide its exemption certificate, or other proof of tax-exempt status, as Ticketing Agent may request from time to time. Promoter will indemnify and hold Ticketing Agent harmless from and against the payment of such taxes and any loss, damage, or other liability suffered by the against Ticketing Agent (or asserted against Ticketing Agent by any taxing authority) in relation to Promoter’s nonpayment of such taxes.
Box Office Management & Street Team
Upon request, Ticketing Agent can assist Promoter with on-site Box Office Management services for the purposes of handling on-site duties for the box office. Ticketing Agent can also arrange for a Street Team for flyer and poster distribution (which usually requires advance deposit to cover costs). If Promoter is interested in these additional services, please contact the Ticketing Agent to discuss specific details, including requirements and costs. The rates for Ticketing Agent staff will be determined by the hours, responsibilities, and duties necessary to operate on-site box office details, and facilitate promotional materials for distribution. These services will be expressed as a line item on the Promoter final close out report. Amounts payable to the Ticketing Agent related to these services may be invoiced to Promoter after the completion of the Event, deducted as a line item against the Event to which the services related or against a future Event, or the Ticketing Agent may retain a reasonable reserve from the funds otherwise due Promoter after completion of the Event to cover these services, which Ticketing Agent may retain for up to 90 days after completion of the Event. If the Event is cancelled or rescheduled to a date more than three months after the initially scheduled date, Ticketing Agent may immediately invoice the Promotor for Box Office Management and Street Team fees, costs, and chargebacks, and payment on the invoice will be due upon receipt.
Ticket Availability and Venue Capacity
Promoter is responsible for setting the number of tickets available for purchase for each Event. Promoter agrees that the number of attendees is within the legal fire regulations, venue capacity limitations, and any other limitations set forth by city, municipality, county, district, state, and/or federal codes and/or laws. If more Ticket Holders have tickets or are registered than allowed, Promoter agrees the full ticket price, plus any and all ticket, service, and other fees, will be refunded to the Ticket Holders to cover refunds for those not allowed entry. Promoter further agrees that Promoter will pay Ticketing Agent the full ticket and service fees for the refunded tickets, plus reimburse Ticketing Agent for additional costs, including but not limited to, credit card charge fees and chargebacks fees related to refunding the tickets and fees for exchanges of physical tickets. Ticketing Agent reserves the right to withhold payment to Promoter for up to 90 days after an Event ends for Events where Ticket Holders were turned away due to over sales or insufficient capacity.
Promoter agrees to immediately notify Ticketing Agent after the decision to cancel an Event is made. Ticketing Agent will notify Ticket Holders of the cancellation. Ticketing Agent reserves the right to issue full refunds to the Ticket Holder, including ticket and service fees, for the cancelled Event. Promoter agrees that if an Event is cancelled and full refunds are issued to Ticket Holders, Promoter will pay Ticketing Agent the full ticket and service fees for the refunded tickets, plus reimburse Ticketing Agent for additional costs, including but not limited to, credit card charge fees and chargebacks fees related to refunding the tickets and fees for exchanges of physical tickets.
Promoter agrees refunds will be given to Ticket Holders for rescheduled Events at the request of the Ticket Holder. Promoter agrees that if an Event is rescheduled, Promoter will pay Ticketing Agent the full ticket and service fees for the refunded tickets, plus reimburse Ticketing Agent for additional costs, including but not limited to, credit card charge fees and chargebacks fees related to refunding the tickets and fees for exchanges of physical tickets.
Change of Event Venue or Change of Event
Upon request of the Ticket Holder, Promoter agrees refunds will be given to Ticket Holders if there is a change to the Event venue or a change to the Event. Under such circumstances, Promoter agrees that Promoter will pay Ticketing Agent the full ticket and service fees for the refunded tickets, plus reimburse Ticketing Agent for additional costs, including but not limited to, credit card charge fees and chargebacks fees related to refunding the tickets and fees for exchanges of physical tickets.
Ticket Refund Policy
Promoter agrees that Ticketing Agent may refund up to the face value of the ticket or registration purchased through Ticketing Agent until sales for the Event have completed. Ticketing Agent will contact Promoter for any large or out of ordinary refunds, including a request to refund any service fees. Promoter will remain responsible for paying Ticketing Agent the full amount of the ticket and service fees on refunded tickets.
After an Event the Promoter will receive a Closeout Report reflecting Event sales, ticket and service fees, charges for additional goods and services utilized by the Promoter, chargebacks, and all other fees and charges. Unpaid charges and other amounts owed by Promoter for past or future Events may also be listed on the Closeout Report and deducted from the Event payment due to Promoter. Promoter understands and agrees that the Ticketing Agent has the right to withhold any and all payments to Promoter for up to 90 days following the end of the Event for any reason, including without limitation a reserve sufficient to cover potential outstanding Box Office Management and Street Team fees and costs, and chargebacks.
By Check. Ticketing Agent will mail a check payment, via USPS in the United States, to Promoter within 3-7 business days following completion of the Event. However, Ticketing Agent does not guarantee the check will be received in 3-7 business days due to possible inconsistencies with or delays by the USPS or other mail carrier system. If the Promoter does not receive payment in 15 days following completion of the Event, Ticketing Agent will issue a replacement check and put a stop payment on the original check. If the Promoter does not wait 15 days they will be charged for the stop payment fee imposed upon the Ticketing Agent.
By Wire Transfer (ACH). Ticketing Agent will schedule a wire transfer within 2 to 5 business days following completion of the Event. Ticketing Agent does not guarantee the funds will be received (or cleared by the recipient’s bank) within 2 to 5 business days due to possible inconsistencies with the online processing systems. If the Promoter does not receive payment within 10 days following completion of the Event, the Ticketing Agent will look into the transfer, communicate with our ACH representative, and seek to identify the issue. Once the transfer has been verified to have not processed the Ticketing Agent will schedule a replacement transfer.
The Promoter is responsible for all chargebacks, chargeback fees, card processing fees, and related costs associated with any chargeback (and the charge being disputed) for which the merchant services company finds in favor of the Ticket Holder. If a chargeback is received for any purchase related to an Event, the Ticketing Agent will research and dispute the chargeback. The Ticketing Agent is not responsible for fraudulent activity by Ticket Holders. Amounts payable to the Ticketing Agent related to a chargeback will be invoiced to Promoter after the completion of the Event, deducted as a line item against the Event to which the chargeback related or against a future Event, or the Ticketing Agent may retain a reasonable reserve from the funds otherwise due Promoter after completion of the Event to cover any chargebacks, which Ticketing Agent may retain for this purpose until the later of 90 days after completion of the Event (by which date all chargebacks should be received) or 5 days after the merchant services company informs the Ticketing Agent of its decision on the last outstanding chargeback. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the Event is cancelled or rescheduled to a date more than three months after the initially scheduled date, then any amounts payable to the Ticketing Agent related to a chargeback may be invoiced to Promoter immediately, and payment on the invoice will be due upon receipt.
Intellectual Property; Right to Remove Content
Promoter agrees not to use any material or content that infringes, violates, misuses, or misappropriates the intellectual property rights of any other person or entity under any applicable local, state, national or other law, rule or regulation. This includes, without limitation, the use of copyrighted or trademarked text or images on the Promotor’s Event page if the Promoter does not have an ownership or other right to use such copyrighted or trademarked material or content. Promotor further understands and agrees that the Ticketing Agent has the absolute right (but not the obligation) to take down, remove, or delete any intellectual property or other content that we determine may infringe the intellectual property rights of another, regardless of whether we have received an Digital Millennium Copyright Act notice.

The Ticketing Agent Indemnified Party may provide notice to the Promoter of any such Losses to the last contact information supplied by the Promoter.
