It’s here! The new Comic-Con Member ID Portal is officially live, and we couldn’t be more excited! Here are some important instructions for those who have created a Member ID in our previous system that should help make your Member ID experience go smoothly.
For those with an existing Comic-Con Member ID, please click here. If you have not logged in to the new Member ID Portal for a previous event (Comic-Con Special Edition or WonderCon 2022), you will be prompted to reset your password. Please follow the instructions sent to you via email to reset your password, and SHAZAM, you’re done! Your account will be active and you will be eligible to participate in badge registrations or badge sales.
If you no longer have access to the email connected to your Member ID account, please contact us by submitting a contact form.
To create a new Comic-Con Member ID, please see the “How To Register” section below. Comic-Con Member IDs are free and no purchase is required! You must be age 13 or older to register for a Comic-Con Member ID. If you have children ages 12 and under, we invite you to review our child badge policy.
WHAT IS A COMIC-CON MEMBER ID?
Anyone who wishes to purchase, apply, or register for a Comic-Con or WonderCon badge must sign up for a Comic-Con Member ID. If you registered for a Member ID previously, your Member ID is still active and you do not need to register for another Member ID.
A Member ID is free and available to all adult and junior (age 13 to 17) attendees with a valid and unique email address. Member ID registration does not reserve or guarantee you a badge. Children (ages 12 and under) may not register for a Member ID. You may register a child on-site for free at the Registration Area as long as that child is accompanied by a registered adult badge holder. Note: Children must be present to be registered for a badge, and the registered adult badge holder will be required to provide emergency contact information for any child registrant.
Everyone with a Member ID who has opted in to receiving email communications will be notified via email when Comic-Con or WonderCon badges go on sale. We encourage you to log in to your Member ID account and make sure you have opted in to email communications from Comic-Con to avoid missing important notices and information. You will not be notified of Comic-Con or WonderCon badge sales if you have not opted in.
Customize your opt-in preferences by logging in to your Member ID account and clicking ‘My Account Information’. If you want to receive important registration information, select ‘Yes’ from the dropdown for ‘Do you want to receive marketing emails?’. On the same page, there are three additional opt-in preferences you can customize.
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 related conventions and events. You may also receive emails from our registration partners regarding Comic-Con or related convention and event registration, and from our hotel reservation company regarding hotel information for Comic-Con related conventions and events.
HOW TO REGISTER
Member ID registration is free of charge and only takes a few minutes. If you do not have a Member ID account, please follow the steps below.
Only one Member ID is required per person. Please do not attempt to create multiple Member ID accounts.
Create a Member ID or log in to your Member ID account through the Member ID Portal. You can access the Member ID Portal at any time by clicking the Member ID link in the upper right-hand corner of the Comic-Con website.
2. Choose a Member ID that you can remember!
It’s important to remember the Member ID you choose. Not only is your Member ID required to participate in badge sales, but it may also be used as a form of verification when you’re on-site or corresponding with customer service. If someone wants to purchase a badge for you, they’ll need your correct Member ID.
3. Provide a long-term email address.
Register your Member ID account with an email address that you check regularly. Important registration information such as badge confirmations and announcements are sent via email so long as you have opted in.
4. Complete the rest of your account information accurately.
If someone purchases a badge for you, they’ll need your Member ID and last name. If your last name includes any spaces or special characters, they will need to enter your last name exactly as it appears on your Member ID account. Please make sure your information is correct before clicking ‘Next’.
6. Identify the correct Member ID Registration type and click ‘Select’.
Member ID Registration types include: Junior (age 13-17), Adult, Active Duty Military, and Senior (60+). Your account is not complete until your Member ID Registration type is selected. An attendee badge cannot be purchased for a Member ID unless a Member ID Registration type has been selected.
7. On the same page, your Member ID Registration type selection and basic account details will appear below. Click ‘Add to Cart’.
Do not select ‘+ New Registrant’. You are not able to create multiple Member IDs – for yourself or for others – during this process. If too much time has passed, you will be prompted to log in. Log in with the Member ID and password you just created to complete your account creation.
9. Do you see a page that says Registration Complete? Congratulations! You now have your very own Comic-Con Member ID account.
You will receive an order confirmation email from firstname.lastname@example.org displaying your Member ID Registration type within 24 hours.
Please follow all the steps above to complete your account creation. Member ID registration does not reserve or guarantee you a badge. You will not be eligible to participate in any badge sale until your Member ID account is complete. Your chance of purchasing badge(s) is not influenced in any way by the information you provide during Member ID registration. Duplicate Member ID registrations will be automatically canceled. If badges were already purchased by the member, they will be automatically canceled, less a 10% processing fee and the $10 handling fee, at SDCC's sole discretion.
IMPORTANT TERMS & 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 SDCC. Your details will be saved for future badge sales and you will receive periodic registration and website administration updates from SDCC.
Please make sure the email address you provide is one to which you have long-term access.
Should you wish to remove yourself from the Comic-Con Member ID database, please submit a contact form. Please note that canceling your Member ID will mean you are no longer eligible to purchase, apply, or register for a Comic-Con or WonderCon badge, and will need to re-register should you wish to buy badges in the future. If you have already purchased a badge for Comic-Con or WonderCon, that badge will be canceled and the purchase price, less a 10% processing fee and the $10 handling fee at SDCC’s sole discretion, will be refunded if the membership cancellation was requested before the refund deadline.
Children (ages 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 log in 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, department volunteer, or exhibitor key contact badges must sign up for a Comic-Con Member ID before they can request to register for a badge. If SDCC determines that you purchased or registered for a badge, but did not register for a Comic-Con Member ID, SDCC has the right to cancel your badge and refund any amounts paid, less a 10% processing fee and the $10 handling fee, at SDCC's sole discretion.
SDCC 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 or related event badge, that badge will be automatically canceled, less a 10% processing fee and the $10 handling fee.
Although SDCC makes efforts to ensure the purchase of badges is easy, efficient, and equitable, SDCC 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, SDCC 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, San Diego Comic Convention (SDCC) has the right to cancel your Member ID. SDCC reserves the right to refuse admission, to refuse service and/or to cancel/revoke your Member ID and/or badge at SDCC’s discretion.
