Comic-Con 2018 attendee badges are sold out. There will be no additional badge sales. We thank you for your continued support and we are very grateful to receive such a high level of interest in our event.
The information below pertains to Comic-Con 2018 Open Registration and is provided as a reference only for those who are interested in the badge purchase process.
Although we strongly recommend that you read all of the information on this page and watch the tutorial video, here are the top six tips for Open Registration:
- You can purchase badges for up to three people – yourself included – if you are randomly selected for a registration session. Each person must have their own Comic-Con Member ID and must be eligible to participate in Open Registration. You may not purchase badges for others using your own Member ID.
- In order to purchase a badge for another eligible attendee, you will need their last name and Member ID.
- You must enter the waiting room before 9:00 AM Pacific Standard Time (PST). To enter the waiting room you will need your personal registration code. Registration codes are available in your Member ID account under the "Registration Info" tab.
- Only use one browser tab or instance when trying to purchase badges. Multiple tabs within the same browser can confuse the waiting room/badge sales process and cause your transaction to fail.
- Add email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org as an approved/authorized sender to your email account.

If you are selected for a registration session, you will need to enter an eligible Comic-Con Member ID and LAST NAME. Do not enter your Member ID and password. If your Member ID is currently being used in another session by another member, it will not validate. If your Member ID has already been used to purchase a badge during Open Registration it will not validate.
ATTENTION BADGE BUYING GROUPS! If you are working in a buying group, make sure that your Member ID is only being used by an authorized participant. If your Member ID is used by someone in your group, and you are unable to use it when selected for a registration session, Comic-Con is unable to assist you after the sale. It is critical that you only work with a well-organized buying group. Once a Member ID is used in a registration session, it is locked for 15 minutes or until the session is closed. Buying groups can be helpful, but we've seen an increasing number of people get shut out due to disorganized efforts. If you receive the error message above, your Member ID has been used by another participant.
When you reach the badge selection page, all available inventory will be shown. Badge inventory will not refresh while you are on this page. If your desired badge type is unavailable, select another type or close your registration session. If you are having trouble validating a Member ID, please review the "Other Important Info" section and make sure that all registrants are eligible to participate in Open Registration.
Before you leave the badge selection page, you will be asked if you want to continue. Make sure you have selected all of your desired badges before you leave this page. It is critical that you do not use your browser’s back button during any step of your registration session! If you need to remove a badge selection, you will be given the option on the final review page. Comic-Con cannot guarantee that your Expo Logic registration session will behave as expected if you use your back button during any step of the registration process.
You will have a chance to review your entire order on Step 4. If you need to remove a badge, do not hit the back button! Select the "remove" option next to the badge you would like to return to inventory. Once a badge has been returned to inventory, you cannot retrieve it.
Please note that all badge purchases are subject to a $5 handling fee, per member.
When you are ready to complete your purchase, review the Comic-Con Terms and Conditions and type "agree" where indicated. By registering for a paid or complimentary Comic-Con badge you agree not to sell, trade, transfer or share your comp code, email confirmation, or badge. In the event that Comic-Con determines that you have violated this policy, Comic-Con has the right to cancel your badge(s) and keep any money paid by you.
Congratulations! Your Comic-Con badge purchase is complete. The buyer will receive an immediate credit card receipt via email, and all members will receive a badge confirmation email within 48 - 72 hours after Open Registration is complete. We encourage you to add email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org as an approved/authorized sender to your email account. If you do not receive your badge confirmation within 72 hours, check your SPAM inbox or log in to your Comic-Con Member ID account and use the "Contact Us" feature.
