When you list PDF tickets on StubHub, it means you have the original, electronic .PDF file on your computer or phone. You're not allowed to make your own PDF file from paper ticket scans, photos, or copies.

  • You can upload a PDF file while listing, after creating the listing, or once the tickets sell
  • If your PDF file contains more tickets than you're selling, you can choose which to upload and which to keep

If you upload tickets to a listing before someone buys it, you're pre-delivering the tickets. This means if the tickets sell, you won't need to do anything because the buyer automatically gets the tickets shortly after the order goes through.
