Onsale: Assigning Badges Walkthrough

During the onsale for New York Comic Con, you'll be required to assign each individual badge during checkout. You will not be able to complete your purchase until all your badges are assigned to yourself and anyone you're buying for.

  • If the person you are buying for has a Fan Verification account, great! Use that email to assign the badge to them.
  • If the person you are buying for does not have a Fan Verification account, no worries! Assign the badge to their email address and they can create a Fan Verification account later on.
    PRO TIP: to make things easier, make sure your friend Fan Verifies with the email you used to assign them a badge.

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

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 friend or family member you're buying for.

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.

Be prepared to show proof of age onsite.

AND NOW FOR THE FINAL STEP: After you've assigned the badge to your friend or family member and have completed your checkout, they'll receive an email notifying them that they've been transferred a NYCC badge. They must create a Fan Verification account in order to accept the badge that you've assigned to them. If they don't create a Fan Ver account, they won't be able to participate in any of our lotteries for private autographing, exhibitor exclusives, or reserved panel seating. Their badge will just sit in limbo and they'll be able to attend the event, but they won't be able to do any of the extra cool stuff we got goin' on.

Once they create their Fan Ver account, they'll be able to go into ShowClix's My Tickets page (henceforth known as Fan Ver Hub) to accept the transfer.
