Making sure your event is set to the correct timezone is important for ensuring that sales start and end when intended. Online events display the timezone prominently on the event page, and purchasers rely on this information to log in for the event at their correct local time. Brown Paper Tickets event timezones are set automatically during event creation using the event's location details.
Set a City Name
Brown Paper Tickets establishes an event's timezone by checking the details on the event's Location page against a database of recognized zip or postal codes and city names. To ensure the event is created with the correct timezone, add the official city or community name associated with a zip or postal code during event creation.
For US locations, our database uses city names based on USPS zip code information. If you're unsure of the formal city name associated with your zip, a quick web search for the zip code should tell you the correct city or community name to enter.
