Ticketmaster Automation Program

I am looking for a program that will allow me to rapidly move through the purchase screens at [url removed, login to view] (I find the Canadian version to be faster as opposed to the US [url removed, login to view]). The main focus of this program would be to dramatically reduce the time it takes to get from the original screen to the actual generating of seat location. The faster the process is, the more tickets will be available for purchase. The most general of the purchase screens is this one which is for a public on-sale: [url removed, login to view];majorcatid=10001&minorcatid=2

Prior to 10Am on the date of the on-sale the screen would look something like this:

[url removed, login to view];tm_link=tm_home_h10

Normally I would have to continuously refresh my browser with the F5 key until the item opens up for sale. At that point I would select two or four tickets in the dropdown and then click on “Look for tickets”. That will bring you to a word image page and once that word is typed in the box, your ticket location is revealed.

I am looking for a program which can automate this whole process. I understand that it would take a sophisticated program to solve the algorithm which the word images use but at the very least I would like to be instantaneously brought to the word image once the event is unlocked (Tickets are on-sale) so that I can type in the word and see my ticket location in a very quick process.

One key issue is the use of multiple browsers and how Ticketmaster uses cookies and finds your IP address to shape traffic on its site. You will see that you are not able to search for an event on two Internet explorer browsers at the same time. If you want to purchase tickets simultaneously you will have to use different browsers such as Netscape, Opera, and Mozilla/Firefox. It is obvious that the more times that you “look for tickets”, the greater the likelihood that you can secure the best seats. Any program made would have to address this issue. If it were possible to disguise an IP or not allow Ticketmaster to recognize the attempts are from the same computer, then a program which automates the purchase process could do this on 20 or more browsers (even if all are internet explorer).

If the program can get past the word image and write it for me then that would be fantastic as I now would immediately have 20 sets of tickets available and I would just have to tab from screen to screen and select the ones that are worth purchasing. I know that proxy servers or use of a program like securetunnel can mask the IP address but from what I read I gather that these methods significantly affect internet speed to the point that there is no gain in their use. This issue of traffic shaping is extremely important as Ticketmaster often blocks a customer’s use of its site when they receive tons of hits from the customer’s IP address. So a program that was pulling 20 sets of tickets would need to get past the technology that Ticketmaster uses. An additional feature that would also set off some type of ring or alarm when a certain set of tickets are pulled up would also help. Let’s say for example I am looking for all tickets in the first 5 rows anywhere in the arena. If the tickets that are brought up meet this criteria, an alert or alarm to notify us would also help. This feature wouldn’t be absolutely necessary, however still helpful if it is an option.

Another important aspect of the program is that it needs to be able to navigate the different types of purchase screens that Ticketmaster uses. One of the most important purchase screens is that for a presale with password. This screen almost always looks like the general on-sale screen but there is a box to the right of the Price dropdown where the customer must type in the password. It is difficult to provide a presale link that works because the timeframe on most is short.

[url removed, login to view];majorcatid=10002&minorcatid=207

When you can use this link, which is a regular on-sale but the Promotional area looks exactly the same way that a presale with password would look. That screen is similar to others as well. Often for a regular on-sale there will also be an American Express allocation where a password must be used and this screen has that as well. I am including this because it is important that I can still just go for 2 regular tickets when these extra categories are there.

This should provide you with a decent idea of what we need in a program. In addition, Ticketmaster does routine maintenance on their systems from time to time so in the event a program can be created, we may need to have updates made to the system. However we will tackle that problem once the program is running. Once you have an idea of the type of program you can create then we can begin to discuss the monetary compensation. I will pay whatever I see as the value of the program- if it can complete all of the tasks above in an efficient manner then I would be willing to pay over 5k.

I will not reply to generic responses that people send to me. I wrote a long description because I want someone who understands what I want and knows how to get it done.
