Also, don't forget that you can download your purchased tickets in the My Purchases menu in the Profile tab.
Someone else's name is present on the e-ticket I bought. Could this become an issue at the entrance?
No. E-tickets usually have the name of the buyer written on them, but this does not mean that only the original buyers can use the ticket. E-tickets provide entry for the first person validating the barcode at the entrance, not the person whose name appears on them.
