TicketLeap tips for buying passes


“Once more into the breach dear friends…” -King Henry the V,  Shakespeare

TicketLeap sent out an information email reminding fans that SDCC tickets go on sale this Saturday. They have apparently partnered with Amazon’s servers to ensure that a crash doesn’t happen again. So hopefully third time will be a charm. They also included some tips on how to best complete the registration. Below is from their blog page:

Comic-Con tickets

Comic-Con fans, rejoice! The announcement you have been waiting for is finally here – tickets are going on sale for the 2011 International Comic-Con in San Diego. Mark your calendar for Saturday, February 5 at 9 a.m. PST when the ticketing link will go live on Comic-Con’s registration page.

Want to make sure you snag tickets to the largest comic book and pop culture convention in the world? Here’s our tips for ticket buyers on Saturday:

  • Do NOT create a TicketLeap account at any time. These accounts are only for people hosting events. We don’t pre-store credit card information for ticket buyers, you will have to enter it manually on Saturday when you purchase tickets. By not creating an account before, during or after tickets go on sale this leaves our Support Team free to help those who need assistance.
  • Check your browser settings. Make sure you are running the most current version of your web browser. Please note that Internet Explorer 9 (which is in beta) will not be supported during the purchasing process. In addition, check your browser settings to make sure that JavaScript is enabled.
  • Have your information ready. Be sure your credit card billing information and each badge holder’s information is 100% accurate. If you enter your credit card information incorrectly, a pending charge will be placed on your card and your tickets will NOT be purchased. You will need the first name, last name and email address of each badge holder to complete your purchase.
  • Don’t time out your session. Once you have successfully put tickets in your shopping cart, you have 15 minutes to complete the necessary buyer information. If you take longer than 15 minutes your tickets will be released.
  • There are no phone sales. Comic-Con tickets can only be purchased online, so have your computer ready at 9 a.m. PST on Saturday.

After you complete your ticket registration and submit payment information, you will receive one e-mail confirmation from us. Then starting on February 8, EPIC Registration will begin to send out bar coded e-mail confirmations. You should expect to receive your confirmation from EPIC within 3 to 4 business days of your initial TicketLeap purchase. You will receive one bar coded confirmation for each badge/admission type. This is your “ticket” to Comic-Con International.

Please add the epicreg.com domain to your safe senders list so your confirmation will not go to your spam folder. If you do not receive a confirmation within the time frame above, please contact EPIC by e-mail at registration@epicreg.com. Your email should include your TicketLeap confirmation number and the names for which you did not receive a bar coded confirmation.

Good luck to everyone purchasing tickets on Saturday!

    • I’m really excited for Saturday! Thanks for the info. Us girls are getting together for ticket-purchasing/brunch so we can all be on our computers trying for tickets and know who gets in first. And then celebrate the end of craziness hopefully! 🙂

      • Way to make an event of it! You may have to be patient the first hour but I think it will work out this time. Make sure to take a picture and I will tweet it to the SDCC fans! Thanks for commenting!

  2. Thanks for these tips! This is my second SDCC experience, but is the first time that has made me nervous about registration. The advice given here should help though.

    • Sure! Give yourself plenty of time on Saturday morning. With tens of thousands of tickets, you will get one if you are patient. That first hour might be frustrating if the servers clog up again. Good luck and thanks for commenting!

  3. Oh gosh. I really hope i get in and get tickets first thing. Darn time zone puts me at 11am and at work, hopefully on my fifteen minute break :/

  4. I just got the tickets for my friend but never got an email confirmation. I included mine and hers so I can only hope that she gets it in her email. Was I supposed to do anything after the page with the confirmation number and twitter comments? Any suggestions if she doesn’t get the email?

    • Check you bank account. If it processed you will probably get the confirmation shortly. If not, you might want to keep trying. You can always return tix for a full refund later.

      • My card was already charged but still no confirmation. I think it went to their email instead of mine, I’ll have to check with them later. Thanks!
