The Wait is Almost Over: Comic-Con 2023 Badges Are Shipping!

That’s right, Comic-Con 2023 badges are on their way!

Check your badge’s “Shipping Status” by following steps in the TRACKING section below to verify whether or not your badge has shipped.

While you’re at it, we highly recommend reviewing the rest of our badge shipping pointers to ensure you receive your badge for a successful and enjoyable convention experience!


WHAT: Your badge has been preassembled with the paper name badge(s) inserted into the plastic badge holder. On the back of your plastic badge holder will be an RFID sticker. If you have multiple single-day badges, take a moment to confirm you have a paper name badge for each day. You will only have one RFID sticker for all associated paper badges. For confidentiality purposes, all badges will be delivered in plain and discreet packaging. Please keep an eye on your mailbox to ensure that you don't miss any deliveries.

WHERE: Shipped Comic-Con 2023 badges are being mailed to the "Primary Shipping Address" that was on file in your Member ID account as of the May 12, 2023 badge shipping deadline.

WHEN: Badges will be shipped in waves, so even if you ordered badges with a friend, they will arrive separately. Keep an eye on your tracking information!


If your Comic-Con 2023 badge was eligible for advance shipping, it’s being shipped via UPS Mail Innovations in partnership with the United States Postal Service (USPS) to ensure prompt and efficient delivery.

To track the delivery status of your badge, simply log in to your Member ID account and follow these steps:

  1. Click on "Account" in the blue menu bar at the top of the page.

  2. Select "My Badges" from the dropdown menu.

  3. Click on the blue " Shipping " button above your Comic-Con 2023 badge order.

  4. A window will appear with your Shipping Status, Shipping Address, Tracking Number, and Items in Shipment.

  5. To get more detailed tracking information, click on the Tracking Number and you will be redirected to a USPS page with up-to-date details.

That's it! By following these steps, you can easily track the delivery status of your badge and stay informed on its progress.

Once badges are in transit, they cannot be reshipped or rerouted. If your badge was shipped but you haven't received it after 10 business days, please report it to us as undelivered (this can be found in the menu bar of your Member ID account). Our team will promptly disable your undelivered badge and create a replacement for you on your first day on-site.

Reporting your badge as undelivered ensures that the replacement fee will be waived. Bring your badge confirmation email and valid photo ID for a replacement badge upstairs in the Sails Pavilion at the location listed on your confirmation. Please note that disabled badges cannot be used for event entry, regardless of the reason for non-delivery. For more information on how to report your badge as undelivered, click here.

Unfortunately, international shipping is not available. Instead, international attendees are able to pick up their badge upstairs in the Sails Pavilion during badge pick-up starting on Tuesday, July 18, 2023. To obtain your badge, make sure to please bring a valid photo ID and your badge confirmation.

To make sure your experience at Comic-Con 2023 is seamless, your badge confirmation will be emailed to you a week or so before the event. This confirmation contains the information you need to know about your badge as well as your barcode, so please bring it along with a valid photo ID in case your badge is not delivered.

If you haven't received your badge confirmation or can't find it, follow these simple steps:

  1. Log in to your Member ID account

  2. Click on  HOME  in the menu bar, then select "My Orders" from the left menu bar. 

  3. Look for your Comic-Con 2023 badge information and click the yellow " Details " button. 

  4. On the next page, click the blue " Resend Confirmation " button to receive your badge confirmation email.* 

  5. Check your inbox for the email and keep it handy for the event!

*If you only receive an order receipt, your badge confirmation is not yet available. 


Complimentary Items: We can't wait for you to get your hands on this year's awesome bag, books, and lanyard! While we can't ship these complimentary items before the event, you can collect them in the Sails Pavilion at the San Diego Convention Center the first day you arrive. 

  • If you receive your badge in the mail, head to the Ballroom 20 lobby and follow the signs for the Bags, Books, and Lanyards distribution area for Badged Members in the Sails Pavilion.

  • If you pick up your badge on-site, your complimentary items will be distributed to you once you receive your badge.

Child Badges: We're also thrilled to offer free badges for children aged 12 and under! If you're purchasing an adult badge, you can register up to two children for free. Just head to the Registration Area upstairs in the Sails Pavilion, where children must be present at the time of registration. For more information, please visit our Child Badge Policy page.
