Ticketmaster Error Code U533 - How to Fix it

If you attempt to purchase tickets through Ticketmaster, you will encounter Error Code U533. There is an issue that is reported to happen on both mobile and desktop browsers.  

Why Do I Keep Getting An Error Code U533 On Ticketmaster?

We’ve listed some possible reasons why you might get this error code on Ticketmaster.

1. Server Issue: Server issues can sometimes be due to the backend or internal server. A developer can help in this case and you can wait to see if the issue is resolved.

2. Cookies issue: Sometimes, due to a slow internet connection or because the page is unresponsive, users refresh the page during the checkout process. In such cases, Ticketmaster applies security measures to prevent further cookie planting. You can resolve this issue by clearing cookies on that particular page or by logging out of your Ticketmaster account. Clearing the cache of your browser app may also help.

3. Extension issue: Chrome and Firefox extensions and ad-ins that are quite popular can conflict with TicketMaster. TicketMaster can be used in Incognito Mode on Chrome (or Private Mode in Firefox) to avoid conflicts caused by extensions or add-ins.

4. VPN and Proxy interference: Proxy servers or VPNs can impede communication between clients and customers on any kind of transaction page. Ticketmaster suffers from the same issue, making transactions impossible. Simply disable the VPN or proxy to solve this problem.
