How to use Multilogin for ticketing
- Discover how the smartest ticketers beat the competition with a seconds-short purchase window
- Learn how virtual browser profiles let you manage hundreds and thousands of online accounts
If you’re running a ticketing business, the ability to manage multiple accounts – into the hundreds or often thousands – is crucial. However, that means there are two problems you need to have a solution for: how do you keep those accounts separated and undetected, and how do you keep pace with that few-second window to bulk-purchase through all these accounts?
Multilogin, offering segregated virtual browser profiles and strong automation capabilities, lets you do just this. Read on to find out how.

In depth: How do you run a successful ticketing operation?
How do ticketing businesses work?
Ticketing operations essentially operate as a middle service reselling tickets for, for instance, concerts. It’s a business that relies absolutely on speed: with tickets selling out for large events fast, you need to be able to get in there first to buy in bulk (more on how this works in a moment!) to then have a pool for resale.
Many generally then follow a buy-and-hold approach, whereby they then hold onto this pool until prices have risen, such as when supply has fallen far further than demand. The final difference between the price at which you bought the tickets, when demand was lower, and the price at which you sell them, is where your profit comes from.
It’s a sector with huge opportunities for getting results, but one that also requires careful strategizing.
What’s the best way to purchase tickets for resale?
As we have touched upon in the introduction, for anyone to make money from online ticketing, you need multiple accounts to be able to spread the risk and maintain profitability. However, that in itself brings an extra layer of risk – unless you plan carefully.
As speed is the name of the game here, there are a number of options depending on the region. In much of the world, many ticket resellers use Multilogin’s automation capability to run multiple accounts – into the 100s or more – with the purchasing tasks automated, so that all of these accounts can start purchasing immediately without the need for significant manpower resources.
In some parts of the world, this is not permitted, and so it takes the management of multiple team members.
How do ticket resellers make money?
The first step is through careful research – continuously researching events to determine if they will prove profitable.
The second step is speed: a delay of as little as twenty seconds with major events can be the difference between acquiring a selection of tickets from sellers such as Ticketmaster and getting nothing, so you need to be quick off the mark. There are a number of ways to achieve this, as we will explore.
Thirdly, you need to time your own resale effectively to hit that most profitable spot when supply is low but demand is still high.
How do you stop multiple accounts being detected?
One of the commonest reasons why accounts get banned on platforms like Ticketmaster or AXS.com is that they are detected as coming from the same user or device. As we have explained further in our dedicated article, your browser fingerprint consists of multiple elements, from the obvious like your IP through to details about hardware and more. All this means it’s very easy to find a chink in your armor if you’re not using a carefully built antidetect.
This is where Multilogin comes in. You can run each of your ticketing accounts on a separated virtual browser profile, which appears as a native, individual device of its own to third parties, with a completely customizable fingerprint.
