Viagogo is an online ticket marketplace for live events and one of the biggest ticket resale exchange platforms outside of the US. It provides a platform for both ticket sellers and ticket buyers and is only second to Ticketmaster in size and popularity.. Ticket sellers or event organizers have access to a large, global audience and ticket buyers have access to a wide range of event tickets from various worldwide shows.

Tickets, especially those in big events, sell out within moments of it going live. It is quite a difficult ordeal if you want to purchase a ticket for yourself. If you want to purchase tickets for a large group of people, then you have to go another route as purchasing a large number of tickets in Viagogo, and other ticketing companies, would be impossible.

Note: Reminder to be aware of scams from sellers reselling fake tickets!

The best way to go around this problem is to use ticket bots and ticket proxies for Viagogo. Viagogo, along with the other ticket websites, have an extremely strict policy against the use of bots. It would immediately ban an account caught using any automation tool. This is because bots can expedite the checkout process and proxies can enable a large number of purchases.

With Viagogo’s anti-spam system, a random free proxy and even some shared private ones are not enough to circumvent its system. Those free proxies are, most likely, already banned by Viagogo. You’re going to need exceptional private proxies from an elite proxy provider to pair with your ticket bots. The best Viagogo proxies are residential proxies. They’re the only type of proxies that will effectively work on Viagogo as even datacenter proxies aren’t enough. Although residential proxies are slower than datacenter proxies, residential proxies are more secure as using rotating proxies that give you different residential IPs will make you appear as if you’re a different user each time you purchase a ticket.

Let’s set up a proxy server for Viagogo.

How To Use Proxies With Viagogo

For Windows:

To set up proxies in Windows, simply search for “Proxy Settings” in your windows search bar and open the search result.


You are then given two options to choose from: Automatic proxy setup or Manual proxy setup. If you want windows to automatically detect your proxy settings, choose the first option. Choose the second option if you want to utilize a specific ip address and port number.

If you chose the first option, then:

  1. Turn on Automatically detect Settings
  2. Turn on Use setup script
  3. Enter the script address
  4. Click Save


If you chose the second option, then:

  1. Turn on Use a proxy server
  2. Input both server address and port number
  3. If you have any addresses you would like to visit without a proxy, enter them here
  4. Turn on Don’t use the proxy server for local addresses check box if you want to access a local server without a proxy
  5. Click Save


For Mac.

To start configuring your proxy settings in MacOS, simply:

Step 1. Click on the Apple Icon.


Step 2. On the drop down menu, click on “System Preferences”.


Step 3. Click on “Network”


Step 4. Click on “Advanced”


Note: Make sure to connect to your wi-fi first.

Step 5. Click on “Proxies”


This should then redirect you to MacOS proxy settings. MacOS is more straightforward compared to windows. You only have one option which is to manually configure your proxy server.

Here are the steps to follow:

  1. Select which proxy IP protocol you want to configure. This depends on which protocols your proxy service provider offers.
  2. Turn on Secure Web Proxy
  3. Input the Proxy Server Address and Port Number
  4. Click OK to save the configurations

Note: You may be prompted for your Mac user password to save your settings.


For Mobile:

To set up a mobile proxy server for Viagogo, simply change your phone’s proxy settings. The Viagogo app will automatically copy your phone’s proxy settings whenever you use it. This is applicable for both Android and IOS. Here’s a thorough guide for Android and another one for iPhone.

Congratulations! You have now finished configuring a Viagogo proxy server. Note that the first time you visit it, there will be a pop up asking for your login credentials.

Note: Make sure that the web browser you’re using for Viagogo is automatically copying your system’s proxy settings. It’s recommended to use Google Chrome because it automatically does this.
