NYCC Presale Assigning Badges Walkthrough

During the presale for New York Comic Con, you'll need to assign each badge to the person you're buying it for. Remember: during the presale, only your friends and family who have also had their Fan Verification account rolled over are eligible to be assigned!

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 whose 2018 Fan Ver account was rolled over for 2019.

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 for any reason 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:

  • Only buying badges for friends who were Fan Verified in 2018
  • Spelling their Fan Verified email correctly (triple check!)

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 go into their Fan Verification account through ShowClix's My Tickets page (henceforth known as Fan Ver Hub) to accept the transfer.

Once they're logged into the Fan Ver Hub, they'll click on the green bars at the top of the page and accept the badges that were assigned to them.

Once the person accepts them and it's confirmed, voila! Do a little dance because you're all going to New York Comic Con!
