The Comic-Con Member ID system will close - without prior notification - in advance of any badge sale event. If you do not register for a Member ID prior to closure, you will not be eligible to participate in badge sale events.
Because we hope to deter scalpers and improve the efficiency of the online registration system, we are requiring that anyone who wishes to purchase, apply, or register for a Comic-Con badge must sign up for their own valid and confirmed Comic-Con Member ID.
A Comic-Con Member ID is free and available to all adult and junior (ages 13 - 17) attendees with a valid and unique email address. Children (age 12 and under) may not register for a Comic-Con Member ID.
By signing up for a Comic-Con Member ID, you'll receive official updates, important registration announcements, access to selected sales, and other information about attending Comic-Con affiliated conventions and events. You may also receive emails from our registration partners regarding Comic-Con registration and from our hotel reservation partners regarding hotel information for Comic-Con conventions and events.
HOW TO REGISTER
Important Terms and Conditions
By submitting a registration for a Comic-Con Member ID, you are consenting to your personal information being retained by Third-parties involved in administrative or operational aspects on behalf of Comic-Con. Your details will be saved for future badge sales and you will receive periodic registration and website administration updates from Comic-Con.
Please make sure the email address you provide is one to which you have long term access.
Should you wish to unsubscribe from the Comic-Con Member ID database, please log in to your Member ID account and select the "Cancel Member ID" option. Please note that unsubscribing will mean you are no longer eligible to purchase, apply, or register for a Comic-Con badge, and will need to re-register should you wish to buy badges in future. If you have already purchased a badge for Comic-Con, that badge will be canceled and the purchase price, less a 10% processing fee, will be refunded if the membership cancelation was requested before the refund deadline.
Children (age 12 and under) may not register for a Comic-Con Member ID.
Registration for a Comic-Con Member ID does not reserve or guarantee you a badge. A Comic-Con Member ID is required to login to the online registration system only, and does not increase your chances of purchasing, applying or registering for a badge. Your chance of buying a badge is not influenced in any way by the number of times you register, or the information you provide during registration. Multiple registrations will be deleted.
You must register for a Comic-Con Member ID in order to be eligible to purchase a badge. Also, anyone applying for press, professional, guest of professional, volunteer, staff, or exhibitor main contact badges must sign up for a Comic-Con Member ID before they can request to register for a badge. If Comic-Con determines that you purchased or registered for a badge, but did not register for a Comic-Con Member ID, Comic-Con has the right to cancel your badge and refund any amounts paid, less a 10% processing fee, at Comic-Con's sole discretion.
Comic-Con will periodically review all Member ID accounts and if duplicates are found, they will be automatically deleted. You may not register for more than one Member ID account. If a deleted account had an associated Comic-Con Badge, that badge will be automatically canceled, less a 10% processing fee.
Although Comic-Con makes efforts to ensure the purchase of badges is easy, efficient, and equitable, Comic-Con makes no guarantee, warranty, or representation that, by logging onto the website with a Comic-Con Member ID, you are entitled to or will be able to purchase a badge. Due to the limited number of badges and the large volume of Comic-Con Member ID holders, badges are sold as long as they are available. Please be advised that Comic-Con badges sell out very quickly. Not all persons eligible to purchase a badge will be able to purchase a badge. Additionally, Comic-Con makes no guarantee, warranty, or representation that the website will function properly throughout the badge sales process. In the event that the SDCC website malfunctions, SDCC will try to rectify the problem in a timely fashion. Notwithstanding, by using the website you agree that IN NO EVENT SHALL SDCC, ITS PRINCIPALS, AGENTS, REPRESENTATIVES OR AFFILIATES BE LIABLE FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, PUNITIVE OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY KIND WHATSOEVER, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO DAMAGES RESULTING FROM THE USE OF THE WEBSITE OR THE BADGE SALE AND REGISTRATION PROCESS.
A Comic-Con Member ID has no monetary value. By registering for a Comic-Con Member ID, you agree not to sell or trade your Member ID and further you agree that if you do so, Comic-Con has the right to cancel your Member ID. Comic-Con reserves the right to refuse admission, to refuse service and/or to cancel/revoke your Member ID and/or badge at Comic-Con’s discretion.
