Paperless means instead of receiving your tickets ahead of the event, the credit card used to make the purchase will serve as your ticket. All you will need for entry is the credit card used to purchase the tickets, and a government-issued ID.
What are or how can I get wheelchair seats
Wheelchair seats are an area in the venue designated for wheelchairs to sit. They are not actual seats. Bay Street Tickets does not purchase Wheelchair Seats. Your best option would be to contact the venue directly to find out more information.
I want my tickets emailed
Most of the tickets we carry are hard tickets and are not email-able. If the tickets are email-able we will offer this method of delivery when a Customer Service Representative contacts you.
When will I receive my tickets?
Tickets are shipped next business day when in stock. Bay Street Tickets guarantees that the latest you will receive tickets, are 7 days prior to the event, unless purchased within 72 hours of event.

No! Unlike many competitors' sites, we do not add any service charges or handling fees to your order. All prices listed are subject to local taxes but beyond that, there are NO HIDDEN FEES!
What is the sales tax charged?
The total of your order does not include any local sales taxes (13%). Local sales taxes will be added to any orders made in Canada. Orders received from American customers will add the 13%HST, being that the event is in Ontario.

FedEx/Purolator: If you choose FedEx/Purolator delivery, the delivery charge will be added to your charge. Prices vary depending on where your tickets are being shipped.

Where do Bay Street Tickets tickets come from?
Our tickets come from season ticket holders who are unable to attend all games or events, and from average consumers who have purchased tickets to an event they are no longer available to attend.
Why is the price on the ticket different from what I was charged?
The price of tickets are based on market demand. For example, Leafs vs. Canadiens game tickets are high in demand and in short supply. Because of this, the tickets will sell higher than the price printed on the ticket (face value).
When would a ticket sell below the price printed on the ticket?
A ticket would sell below the price printed on the ticket (face value) when there is low demand for an event. For example, the Blue Jays face the Baltimore Orioles on a week day. The Orioles are not a popular team and most people can’t make a night game during the week, so tickets may be listed at or below face value as a last minute offer (i.e. day of event).
Why are some people willing to pay more than the ticket price?
The emotional benefits of seeing your favourite band front row, or witnessing history at the Super Bowl, are far more important to some customers than the price of the ticket. Consumers understand there is a deeper personal value to event tickets, and they are willing to pay the higher price to attend these events.
What is the Bay Street Tickets 200% Guarantee?
The Bay Street Tickets 200% Guarantee is our guarantee to our valued customers that not only will you be 100% protected from any counterfeit tickets, but that if for some reason there is a problem with your tickets, we will reimburse you an additional 100% to make it right.
The Bay Street Tickets Guarantee assures your tickets will always arrive on time for every event. Every order that you place with Bay Street Tickets comes with the guarantee that it will be processed in a secure environment.
What forms of payment do you accept?
We accept VISA, Mastercard, and American Express credit cards. We also accept Electronic Funds Transfer, PayPal, On Account (available to certain clients only), cashier’s cheques, money orders, and cash (only accepted in person). We do not carry cash in our office.
Can I cancel an order after I have placed it?
Cancellations are not permitted after an order has been placed. An order is considered final once you confirm the order. If for unforeseen circumstances you are no longer available to attend an event, a Bay Street Tickets store credit may be offered for the total of the invoice of your order (only if timing permits, depending on how soon the event is). If this arises please contact a representative for more information.
When can I expect to receive the tickets I purchased?
Tickets will be delivered as soon as they are in stock. In some cases, we do not receive the tickets till the week of the event. A representative will be in contact with you when tickets will be shipped. Orders made through a pre-order involve tickets that are purchased in advance and are not physically in stock.
Does someone need to be available to receive my tickets when shipped?
All orders shipped by FedEx/Purolator will require a signature. We require a signature to ensure that your tickets arrive safely. Please make sure someone is available to accept the package.
I lost my tickets, can you get them re-printed?
Bay Street Tickets cannot guarantee that tickets will be re-printed if lost or stolen. Contact a Bay Street Tickets Representative to find out if your tickets can be re-printed.
