Can I purchase a badge for my friend?
Yes! There is no limit to how many badges you can purchase for friends and family! To purchase a badge for others, you need the Member ID and last name of each person exactly as it appears on their Member ID account.

Reselling, sharing, or transferring a WonderCon badge or complimentary pass is strictly prohibited. Badges are non-transferable.
Refunds, Lost Badges, and The Fine Print
Non-Transferable: Each WonderCon badge features a unique barcode registered to the badge holder. To prevent scalping, badges for WonderCon are non-transferable. WonderCon permits the purchase of a maximum of one badge type per person.
ID Requirement: Every badge holder will be required to present a valid photo ID when they arrive. Security checks will be performed to ensure that only the person listed on the badge is admitted to the event using that badge. The name on your badge must match your photo ID.
Refunds and Cancellations: The WonderCon 2024 badge refund deadline is February 20, 2024. To request a refund for your WonderCon 2024 badge purchase, please click here. All refunds are subject to a 10% processing fee. WonderCon badges are non-transferable and may not be exchanged. Any duplicate orders will be automatically canceled, less the 10% processing fee and the handling fee, at SDCC’s sole discretion.
Refunds on Early Bird Purchases: We do not issue partial refunds for 3-Day badges purchased during our early bird period. If you no longer want to attend all three days, you must refund your entire 3-Day badge purchase, less the 10% processing fee. Then, once your 3-Day badge is refunded, you can purchase the single-day badge options at our standard rate while inventory is available.
Lost Badges: Please keep your badge safe and secure at all times. Lost badges may be replaced for a nominal fee at the Badge Solutions Desk in the Registration Area on-site.
Limited Capacity: All event and program rooms have a limited capacity as set by the fire marshal. Although your WonderCon badge is required to get into all events, it does not guarantee you access to any event if it has reached its capacity. We do not clear rooms between events. Most autograph signings are of a limited nature. Your WonderCon badge does not guarantee autographs at any event.
Data Protection: Data collected during registration is retained by Comic-Con to enable you to purchase badges for future Comic-Con events. Retained information will also be used to inform you of registration information related to your badge purchase and events run by Comic-Con. Check the “Email Communication” section of our Comic-Con Member ID page to learn how to customize your opt-in preferences.
