TikTok has introduced a new functionality that allows “selected” artists and content creators to put tickets for their concerts and shows up for sale on the platform.
According to TechCrunch, the platform owned by ByteDance has partnered with the event ticket sales company Ticketmaster to create this option so that users can buy tickets through it.
For now, this feature would only be available to “selected” creators, though it will be expanded to more users over time. That way, eligible artists can add a link to their videos that redirects the user to Ticketmaster.
Once these creators have shared their video, the event link will be displayed in the bottom left, so viewers can click and purchase tickets through an in-app browser.
