What is Flash Mobile Delivery?

Flash Mobile Delivery is a digital ticketing system, with tickets assigned directly to fans attending.

This will now be the only customer admission method at venues including The O2 and The SSE Arena, Wembley. It eliminates paper tickets and allows you to enter events quickly with the scanning of the AXS or venue app.

Flash Mobile Delivery allows you to manage your tickets digitally, with the option of transferring them easily amongst your party right up until show time.

Why is Flash Mobile Delivery being launched?

We’re launching the brand new technology to give fans of live entertainment a faster and fairer ticketing experience.

We’ve listened to customers asking for more to be done against unfair secondary ticketing practices and Flash Mobile Delivery tickets come equipped with a dynamically changing barcode system, which ensures that the tickets cannot be copied or shared illegally on any other websites, emphasising AXS’ ongoing commitment to combatting touts.

Enjoy the show!

What happens if people do not have the ability to download the AXS App or have a smart phone?

If you do not have a smart phone, another way to gain entry to the venue is with the credit/debit card used to make the booking. To use this option, all members of the booking will need to be with the ticket purchaser. You must provide your actual credit/debit card that you used for the purchase along with some photo ID (such as a driving licence or passport) in order to enter the event. The name on your photo ID must match the name on the credit/debit card used for the ticket purchase, otherwise you will be refused entry to the event. If you have a new card since the time of booking, you’ll need to contact customer services to update the booking details.

Also, you can go to your AXS Account on a desktop computer and forward your tickets to a friend with a smart phone and enter with them.

What if I lose my phone / run out of battery?

Please visit the box office at the venue on show night.

What about the recent system of putting names on tickets – how does this work with Flash Mobile Delivery?

As the Flash Mobile Delivery tickets are based on a person’s identity, the name of the owner of the ticket automatically transfers once sold. Names are automatically added, adding a layer of security.

Transferring on Flash Mobile Delivery

Transferring your seats

A seat transfer allows you to give each guest in your party their own entry ticket digitally via Flash Mobile Delivery. With seat transfers, you no longer need to worry about delivering the paper tickets to them in advance or meeting them outside of the entrance to walk in together. There is no fee for transferring seats and you are able to make unlimited transfers.

This is done simply through the AXS or venue app – and can be done right up to the event (one hour after door time).

By following the instructions below, you can transfer tickets simply and quickly – leaving you to enter the venue with your guests to join you later.

For more information – please watch this video.

Following these instructions, your guests will be able to enter when they arrive using their own Flash Mobile Delivery ticket. Make sure your friends have downloaded the AXS App to be prepared!

Can I cancel a transfer?

It depends on whether the guests you are transferring to already have an AXS Account. If they already have an account, the seats are transferred instantaneously to their account, so you cannot cancel a transfer once you have initiated it. If the people you are transferring to do not have an AXS Account and do not pick up the tickets you have transferred, you can cancel a transfer.

How many times can a ticket be transferred?

There is no limit on how many times a ticket can be transferred.

Are there any tickets that are not transferable?

There may be times where a block on transferability is requested by the promoter – if this happens, this will be marked clearly at purchase stage.

I bought tickets as a gift for somebody, how do I give them these to them if I am not attending the event?

You can select the transfer option in your account and send them the tickets directly.

What if my friends arrive later than me?

You can transfer the tickets with them in a few easy steps.

Can I share screen shots of the tickets with friends?

No – Flash Mobile Delivery tickets include an anti-tout mechanism that ensures the tickets cannot be copied, as part of this, the bar code changes within the AXS App every 59 seconds.

AXS Official Resale

COMING SOON: we will be introducing our fan-fair re-sale system – AXS Official Resale – that will enable you to sell your tickets if you can no longer attend and give you the opportunity to buy tickets on a fair capped re-sale platform from other fans!
