Comic-Con Member ID

Account FAQ

I forgot my Member ID and/or password, what should I do?

Please visit the Member ID Portal and click the “Forgot Member ID” link. Enter the email associated with your Member ID account and you will be sent an email with your requested information. 

If you no longer have access to the email account that you originally used to register, you will need to contact Comic-Con directly to update your email address. Please do not attempt to create a second Member ID account.

I have a new email address and/or phone number. How do I change it on my account?

Log in to your Member ID account and go to your Account Dashboard.

Click “My Account Information” to update your email address or phone number.

Click “My Addresses” to update your address. If your primary address is where you want badges mailed, click “Edit”, check the box next to “Primary Shipping Address”, and click “Save”.

If your primary address is correct but you want your badges to be mailed elsewhere, click “+Add Address”. Enter your shipping address information, check the box next to “Primary Shipping Address”, and click “Save”.

Will I need to sign up for a Member ID again next year?

No. You only need to sign up for a Comic-Con Member ID once. If you wish to purchase a badge for Comic-Con 2023 and beyond, you will use your same Member ID.

I share an email address with my partner or family member. Why do we each need a unique email address?

By requiring a unique email address for each Comic-Con Member ID, our goal is to increase the speed of the online registration process, prevent duplicate registrations, and prevent scalpers from reselling badges at inflated prices. Our hope is that the Member ID system will allow more fans to purchase badges for this very popular event.

Are there a limited number of Member IDs available?

Anyone (ages 13 and up) may register for a Member ID – they will not run out. Please note that duplicate email addresses are not allowed and each person may only have one Member ID. Duplicate Member ID registrations will be automatically deleted. If it is found that you have registered for more than one Member ID, San Diego Comic Convention (SDCC) reserves the right to automatically cancel all of your Member ID accounts and refund, less a 10% processing fee and the handling fee, at SDCC’s sole discretion, any badge purchases made by those accounts.  

Why haven’t I received emails from Comic-Con?

If you are not receiving emails from Comic-Con, it is possible that you have not opted in to email communication. To receive email notifications, log in to your Member ID account and click “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. Remember, if you do not select “Yes” or do not check an OptIn box, you will not receive correspondence from that source.

If the suffix includes punctuation (such as commas, periods, and special characters), that must be included as well.

Each attendee is required to pick up their own badge. If you purchase a badge for a friend, you cannot pick up their badge for them.

Wondercon professional

registration faq

Does WonderCon 2024 registration qualify me for a Comic-Con 2024 badge?

No, this registration period is for WonderCon 2024 only. To register for Comic-Con 2024, please visit the REGISTER AS A PROFESSIONAL section.

Do all qualifying professionals get a badge? Do I need to register as soon as online registration opens?

Each approved professional will receive an individual guaranteed allotment and pricing for their own badge and guest badge(s). This allotment will be available for the full length of the registration period for each show, and is not on a first-come, first-served basis.

IMPORTANT: Even if you have been approved as a professional, you must still separately register a badge for each of our shows that you wish to attend. Badge allotments are guaranteed but are not automatically added to your account!

Can I bring a guest to WonderCon?

Each verified professional may request a complimentary WonderCon 2024 badge for up to two guests until capacity is reached. Once registration opens, follow the instructions that will be outlined in the REGISTER AS A PROFESSIONAL section.

All guests must have a valid Comic-Con Member ID account. Guest badges are limited, and not all guests can be accommodated. Professional guest badges may be used to register up to two adult or junior (age 13-17) members. We encourage you to register your guest badge(s) at the same time you register your own badge.

Children (age 12 and under) are free with a professional badge and do not count toward your guest limit. Child badges must be registered on-site at the Registration Area in the Anaheim Convention Center. The child must be present to receive a badge.

I applied before the September 15, 2023 deadline to be considered for Comic-Con 2024, but my application has not been reviewed yet. WIll I still be able to register as a professional if I’m approved?

Yes! If you submitted your application before the deadline, it will be reviewed in consideration for our 2024 shows. If approved, you will have the opportunity to register your approved allotment of badges and guest badges until registration closes.
