Assigning Badges Walkthrough - New York Comic Con - October 4 - 7, 2018 - Javits Center

Assigning Badges Walkthrough

During the badge buying process for New York Comic Con, you'll need to assign each badge to a unique Fan Verified profile.

To help you with this step, we've included a walkthrough below of what the process will be like. Take a look and make sure you're prepared!

This is what the page will look like once you have badges in your cart and you move forward through the checkout process. Let's say you're buying two Thursday badges.

You'll assign the badge to yourself and a Fan Verified friend or family member you're buying for.

For the presale, you can only assign someone who rolled over their Fan Verification account from 2016/2017. For the general on-sale, you can assign anyone with Fan Verification account regardless of when they Fan Verified.

Oh look! You tried to skip assigning your badges OR you assigned the badge to someone without a Fan Verification profile. No such luck. You'll receive this error message. Fill in the empty field with the email of someone who is Fan Verified or you won't be able to complete your order.

THIS IS IMPORTANT: If you need to remove the badge from your cart you will have to cancel your entire order. This means that the badges you reserved for yourself will also be cancelled. You will then be brought back to the main page (not the virtual queue but the page where you choose your badges) to select your badges again. There is a chance that during this time the badges you had reserved for yourself could now be sold out. DON'T LET THIS HAPPEN TO YOU.

Avoid it at all costs by making sure you're:

  1. Only buying badges for friends who have been Fan Verified (and rolled over their accounts for the presale!)
  2. Talking to anyone else who in your squad to make sure you're not double buying badges for someone

If you receive the error message and they are Fan Verified from 2016/2017, it means they didn't rollover their Fan Verification account. It’s super important that you have their correct email address ready to go prior to buying badges and confirm that they did rollover their account.

Now let's say you're buying a badge for a kid. When you were filling out your Fan Verification account, you were asked if you would be buying a badge for a kid 6-12. If you answered YES, then during checkout you'll assign the badge for your kid to your Fan Verified email address.

If you didn't answer YES to that question, and have more than one of any day in your My Tickets account on ShowClix, those badges will be removed from your order and refunded.

Be prepared to show proof of age onsite.

NOTE: If you transfer a badge to someone, they must go in and accept the transfer for it to be final.

Accept Badge Assignment

To accept badges, the person who you transferred badges to must log into their Fan Verification hub, click on the green bars at the top of the page, and accept the badges that were assigned to them.

Badge Transfer

Once the person accepts them and it's confirmed, rejoice! they're all set to attend NYCC 2018

To help you with accepting transfers and managing your NYCC badges, we've created a walkthrough. Take a look and make sure you're prepared!

We hope that helps! If you have any questions, hit up our customer service superheroes at inquiry@nycomiccon.com.
