When you cancel and refund tickets, Sticky Tickets retains 1.5% of the ticket value to cover the bank's non-refundable merchant fees and administration costs. As an organiser, you can choose to absorb this fee or pass it on to the purchasers. 

To cancel and refund tickets:

  • Log in to the event that has the tickets you would like to refund or cancel
  • Select Sales List  tab
  • Locate and select the order number (or name) of the purchaser you wish to cancel the tickets to.

  • In the Order Details page, select Refund/Cancel Tickets 

  • Select the ticket/s you wish to cancel/refund then click the 'Next' button  

  • Select the type of refund you would like to issue
    • Issue refund as below (a partial refund is issued less 1.5%)
    • Issue full refund (purchaser receives a full refund and you absorb 1.5% refund cost) 

  • If you select a full refund - the retained fee (1.5%) will either come out of existing ticket sales or you will have the option to enter credit card details to cover the shortfall.

If your event has sufficient funds you will be given the option to pay via ticket sales or credit card 


  • It generally takes 2-3 days for a refund to appear on the ticket purchaser's credit card.
  • An email will be sent to the ticket purchaser notifying them of the refund/cancelled tickets.
  • If the amount of the refund is more than the amount we owe you in ticket sales (due to an early payment of sales), you will be asked to enter your credit card details and pay back the difference in sales.
