NYCC General Tix Sale Sat May 13th
« 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

We're trying to get an idea of how many folks need help getting tickets. Please let us know if we need to set up a buying group.

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.

I have a link to buy tickets, but already got my ticket in the pre-sale. How can I help a buying group?

Good call! My kids' first con was a Saturday and then a half day Sunday afternoon. It was the right amount of time.

Has anybody experienced the virtual queue before in previous years?  If so I am curious how it works,

  • 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.

I got my link to buy tickets.

But I'm mainly here to help my friend get two badges.

I think he might want to join the group too, so that will make two of us. And he's trying to get two badges for Saturday.
