PITTSBURGH - The University of Pittsburgh, in partnership with Paciolan, Inc., will now have the ability to scan all tickets at the gates of Heinz Field and the Petersen Events Center using a barcode on the bottom of each ticket. This digital ticketing system provides Panther fans with a variety of convenient benefits.
With the introduction of digital ticketing, Panther Fans can now manage their account and tickets via their "My Account" page online. With this function, fans can electronically transfer game tickets to a friend via email, donate unused tickets to charity and reprint lost tickets via the print at home option. In each of these scenarios, the original barcode is voided and a new, valid barcode is sent to the end user.
Finally, all purchasers of single game tickets will have the option of printing their tickets at home to avoid picking up tickets at will call or receiving them in the mail. In addition to managing their accounts online, Panther Fans will also have the option of utilizing the safe and secure environment of StubHub as a secondary ticket marketplace. Fans can list their unused tickets on StubHub and deliver sold tickets electronically using the print at home option. Once the ticket is sold, the original barcode is voided and a new, valid barcode is sent to the purchaser. Fans will no longer have to mail or deliver hard tickets to the purchaser.
