Title: NYCC General Tix Sale Sat May 13th
Post by: alyssa on May 11, 2017, 05:59:45 am
I got this at 6:20 am


The link you’ve been waiting for is here! This is your unique link for the general on-sale happening this Saturday, May 13 at 11:00 AM ET. Your link is currently active and will take you straight to registration when you click it, but you won’t be able to purchase tickets until the on-sale date and time. You can either click the link at 11:00 AM ET on May 13 or refresh the page if you already have it open. Please note: we are only selling Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Sunday Kids tickets to NYCC this year.


READ THIS CAREFULLY: During checkout, each ticket must be assigned to a person who filled out a Fan Verification profile. You’ll have to assign yourself to your ticket(s) as well as any friends or family you’re buying tickets for.

Have their email addresses ready! We’ve extended the time you’re allowed to complete your purchase, but it is still limited.

REMEMBER: If you were eligible for and bought tickets during the presale, the maximum number of tickets you can buy is 4 per day and 16 total. Your presale link will ONLY be active during the general on-sale if you did not yet purchase the maximum number of tickets.

Do not share your link with your friends – even if they’re your besties. Once you’ve purchased the maximum ticket allotment, the link will expire. If we notice the link is being used in too many browsers, it will be flagged and become inactive.

Each fan has the opportunity to purchase a maximum of four (4) tickets per type and sixteen (16) tickets in total. NYCC 2017 tickets are sold on a first-come, first-served basis. Fan Verification does not guarantee that you will get tickets or the ticket type you want.

Good luck,
NYCC Team

It was a last minute decision. A family friend is looking to go and bring their child who is the same age. I will ease her into it and see how it goes.

  • Do you just refresh the page at 11am EST and get sent to a waiting room?
  • If so how long do you wait in there?
  • Are you randomly selected to buy tickets or is it first come first serve in the queue?

Thanks!

I waited around 90 minutes in the virtual queue last year (and I opened my link when my computer ticked to the sale time) so give it some time.  You could be lucky and get in earlier but that is the longest that I have experienced.

Remember, if you have reached the cart stage of the ticket buying page and see a ticket day as Sold Out, refresh the cart and see if the day comes back.

Until NYCC says that day is sold out, those tickets can still bounce back to inventory.  The 16 minutes starts when you see the cart.  If the 16 minutes expire, you will still be sent back to the same cart and repeat!

tabs should say "Checkout Queue"

Welcome to the Virtual Queue

Remember there’s a limited time frame to complete your purchase so make sure you have your credit card and your friends’ and family’s Fan Verified emails handy to assign their tickets! You MUST assign all tickets prior to checkout.

You are now in the NYCC 2017 virtual queue to buy your tickets. No need to refresh this page – it will update automatically when it’s your turn.

To make the NYCC 2017 on sale as fair as possible, we will allow people access to our site first-come, first-served. When you land on the ticketing page, you can check ticket availability, choose your quantity and start finalizing your purchase.

This is important so here it is again. There’s a limited time frame to complete your purchase so have your credit card and your squad’s Fan Verified emails handy.

Your purchase will only be final when you have fully completed payment and received a confirmation email.

What else do I need to know about NYCC 2017 tickets?


   
Do I really have to individually assign each ticket I purchase to someone who is Fan Verified?

Absolutely. We’ve added additional time for you to complete your purchase, but in order for us to have a presale for fans that created Fan Verification accounts for NYCC 2016 we must have their email addresses at time of purchase.

If you haven’t yet noticed, this is really, really important. There’s a limited time frame to complete your purchase so have every Fan Verified email ready to go during checkout for yourself and those you’re buying tickets for.

Since kids 6-12 don’t need to fill out a Fan Verification profile, how do I assign their ticket(s)?

You may assign a kid to a ticket you are purchasing by clicking the checkbox under the email field.

Any NYCC tickets assigned to kids will only be valid for kids ages 6-12 at the time of NYCC. This will be noted in their NYCC badge as the kid taps in and out of NYCC.

If a NYCC badge assigned to a kid is used for anyone over the age of 12 at the time of NYCC, the wearer will be removed from NYCC without a refund and the wearer and buyer will be unable to purchase tickets to any future NYCC or ReedPOP events. Be prepared to show proof of age onsite.

Kids ages 5 years old and younger do not need a ticket and get into NYCC for free.

PLEASE NOTE: You do NOT need to refresh this page. It will update automatically as you are admitted to the checkout. Activity that is deemed malicious or excessive could result in you being banned from our servers.

And yes, you will be paid back immediately

Edited to add: I guess someone bought the badge? If so, then just email Jayps and he'll pay you back.

Either that, or just email me and I'll make sure to send the money to you

That's been their policy for a couple of years, at least since 2015 (and maybe earlier).


The funny thing is that I complained on various NYCC-related Facebook groups, including one reserved for current and former volunteers, about how I thought this was an unfair policy, and the general consensus was that I shut the F up.  Apparently nobody seemed to have a problem with having to go through the work involved in selling their tickets, which technically you're not supposed to do.

I'm not sure how or why it sold outbday one last year but has tix this year unless people got confused by the moved up timeline from last years sale? Or the required verification immediately of all tickets thus complicating buying groups?  Anyone?

I think it is a combo of many things.
1. Scalpers - Scalpers had 14 days to sell and Fan Verify a person, though I am hearing about a ton of websites selling tickets that are likely already fan verified.
2. Date - It probably is earlier and people in NY like to wait
3. Single Day Tickets - By removing the 3 and 4 Day Option RP got what they wanted. People only bought the days they absolutely wanted to go, namely Friday and Saturday, since the price was raised for the people that used to buy 3 and 4 days tickets. Also it's a combo of things here, if you are an out of towner and coming to NY likely you want to experience NY and sight see. I live in NY so I take it for granted but many people like to experience NY which is in of itself a tourist attraction; I have seen friends who live elsewhere do that when they have come to NY in past years, but in years past the buyer would still have just bought the 3 or 4 day pass now they just buy the single day that they know they want to go to the con. On the other hand if you are a native New Yorker maybe you can't get the time off for Thursday and Friday so they just buy Friday and Saturday and live with that and do other things on Sunday since the cost went up, where as in the past you would have bought a 3 day.

RP did say that they had been continually reducing the number of 3 and 4 day passes sold each year, but since they got rid of them people which also raised the price for those people they are now forced to choose what days they want to buy and thus they are more than likely just buying the two most popular days Fri and Sat.

Again these are just my musings on it.
Title: Re: NYCC General Tix Sale Sat May 13th
Post by: mllNY on May 31, 2017, 08:40:38 am
also to add to that, I still believe they will eventually sell out of all days, just going to be a drop slower.

IIRC they had sold over 80% of Friday tickets on the general on sale date but I do not know where they are on Thursday and Sunday

On Thursday, when NYCC sent out the notification about the shipping deadline for Thurs tickets, I had a crazy idea: what if my husband and I bought Thurs tickets, then just did touristy stuff on Fri and Sat?? And possibly go to Paleyfest panels?? My husband has never been to NY, and I haven't been since I was 13 (omg, I just realized that was 20 years ago!), so it would be a good opportunity to see the city. Then we plan ahead next year and go all 4 days, and won't feel like we're missing getting to sightsee because we would have already done that this year!

To my surprise, he actually agreed! I think mainly because it's right near my birthday, so it can be a birthday trip. Of course, he has to make sure he can get those days off of work first. Also, the shipping deadline has passed, without us buying tickets, so I guess we'll just have to pay the extra shipping costs if we do end up going. And hope they don't sell out before we can buy.

We plan to keep costs down by staying at a hotel in NJ and taking the bus over to Port Authority, as others previously suggested.

The other thing is that there ARE scalpers on the street selling badges.  Obviously you'd have to be careful and you wouldn't know if they scanned or not until you were there, but if you have a valid Thursday badge, and you're there anyway, at least you wouldn't be making a special trip only to get scammed.
