    Default visa card verification problems online....

    here's the deal. i've been trying to buy tickets online for the reel big fish show in a few days on ticketmaster, and i'm trying to use my visa debit/credit card to get them. i've done this each time before with no problems whatsoever. however, it won't let me make a purchase because the visa verification form won't show up under the billing prompt in ticketmaster's site, saying that the page won't load. are they doing routine maintenence or what? i'd like to know because i want to see the english beat and reel big fish. badly

    Click the "more info" button. It's likely that they've got so many orders, the server is programmed to "rooster-block" any excess of transactions.

    Old-schoolers can relate: "If you're caller number 79 at so-&-so number, you'll get tickets to see..."

    Or, you can try a different browser, just in case IE is acting weird.

    Addendum: Keep in mind, however, that this is Ticketmaster you're dealing with. They've been caught with their pants down on several occasions, steering people to TM-owned ticket resellers which marked up seats by as much as 500%. Self-scalping, if you will. What you're experiencing might be a broken link to a TM scalper.

    Or perhaps it's because the English Beat and Really Bad Fish are so awful that they just couldn't let a kid ruin his life like that...

    Can't speak for Really Bad Fish, but I like English Beat. Met the guitarist and singer last year at the local guitar store. Cool cats.

    I hate TicketMaster.

    "Subjective" would be the going word.

    i tried again a few minutes ago, and now it just won't accept my card

    i've got the funds in the bank, and it's still saying not accepted

    ...hey, reel big fish is unpopular enough that they'll probably have a ton of tickekts at the show still, right?...right?!

    Looked at the screenshots again.

    You have to enroll in Verified by Visa. "Please contact a representative of your bank..."

    If you've already done so, it's a TM fail.

    it is ticketmaster's fault then, because i've entered the the "verified by visa" password and i've got the funds in the bank. ticketmaster keeps saying my card was denied though. at least 10 times today it's said that

    well one of my friends who is going also has a debit card and says we'll try his tomorrow, which is today by now since i'm awake so late....
