Scanning tickets for entry


If you're organising an event, you can check in attendees right from the Eventbrite app with either the ticket scanner or with the attendee checklist. Just tap the My Events icon to find your event to get started.


Find your event.

After creating an event and logging into the Eventbrite app, tap My Events near the bottom right. You can use the Live/Past tabs at the top to find your event.

Tip: If you don't see your event, try pulling the screen down to refresh. Also make sure you're signed into the correct Eventbrite account or have the correct subuser permission.


Tap "Scan" or "Attendee List."

From your event's dashboard, choose Scan or Attendee List to start checking in attendees.


Check in attendees.

From the Attendee List, you can check in attendees by tapping their name and selecting the green check icon.

You can also scan printed tickets or mobile barcodes by tapping the Scan icon.

Note: Some events may open in a browser window to complete the order, but your tickets will still show up in the Eventbrite app once your registration is complete.

Finding your tickets


Go to Tickets.

Once you're logged into the Eventbrite app, just tap My Tickets in the mobile menu to find upcoming and past events.


Check your event details or contact the organiser.

The Tickets tab shows a barcode and the Info tab shows your event details (time and place, including estimated time to arrive from your current location).

If you're having trouble finding your tickets, use this troubleshooting article for help.

Tip: If you need to cancel a registration for a free event, you'll need to do this directly on You can, however, contact the organiser by tapping Contact on the Info tab at the top of your ticket.


Show your ticket to scan.

Organisers can scan your printed or digital ticket barcode for entry, although you still may be asked for identification.

Tip: You can add a ticket to your Passbook, but we recommend using the Eventbrite app for ticket management because you'll always see the most current event details.

Pro Tip: If you use the "add to calendar" feature, all of the details as well as a link to the event page will be added to your default calendar.


Note: Your organiser might not need to see tickets for entry to the event, so you may not see a barcode display.


Share group tickets.

The person who purchased the tickets will see them in My Tickets by swiping left. Use the arrow icon in the top right to email that ticket to someone else. They'll receive the barcode to display on their phone (or print).
