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. If the last name includes special characters or a suffix, they must be included. 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 2023 badges purchased by February 15, 2023 are eligible for advance shipping! Attendee badges are shipped to the individual attendee directly. A domestic address must be saved as the “Primary Shipping Address” in their Member ID account by February 15, 2023 in order to have their badge shipped. Badges will begin shipping 3-4 weeks prior to March 24, 2022. Badges will be shipped in batches, so please do not be alarmed if a friend or family member receives their badge before or after you.
We cannot ship to international addresses. Badges not shipped in advance for any reason can be picked up on-site.
Please review our Badge Shipping page for more information.
IMPORTANT: Each attendee must have a valid form of photo ID and must be present to receive their badge. We do not allow bulk pick up or picking up for others.
