Just to be clear. 

The subject line of the email will read "Comic-Con International 2016 -- Important Registration Information".
The sender of the email will be registration <at> epicreg.com.
It will include a barcode at the top right (as an image). A confirmation number. Registration date. Your registration details, including badge type, name, address, phone, email.
Underneath all this it begins:

Dear Comic-Con Attendee,

Congratulations! Your Comic-Con International 2016 badge registration is complete! Please keep this confirmation safe and secure. You may not transfer, sell, and/or share your badge or confirmation.  The name on your badge must match your photo ID when you arrive onsite.  We encourage you to read the entire badge purchase terms and conditions below. 

This confirmation is good for Comic-Con 2016 only. No badges will be sold onsite.


Then continues with typical terms and conditions.

Hope this helps,
Steve.

The bar code is not actually included in the email, it is a PNG image link from You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login.

Either that site is somehow being blocked or you might have to refresh the page.

Edit: I just noticed that the Comic-Con image also is a link from the same site, so if that's working, the site isn't being blocked.  Maybe just try refreshing, or try again later.

It sounds like you at least got the registration e-mail.

I received the confirmation email two days ago but it does not have a barcode on it (images are displayed). Is it correct that as badges are not shipped to international attendees we are required to have the barcode to collect the badges onsite?

All international attendees have to pick up their badges on-site.

Others in this thread have stated that their bar codes aren't being shown in their badge confirmation e-mail as well, but even if you don't have a bar code image, as long as there is a 7-digit confirmation number, you should be fine.  They should be able to look that up at Comic-Con as a last resort.

Not much information to go on about that issue right now, but it's also possible that EPIC will resend confirmation e-mails as it gets closer to Comic-Con.  (They've done so in the past a few times... if I recall correctly.)

Now that you guys mention it, mine has no barcode either. The one I got after Pre-Reg did have a barcode, but this one doesn't.

That could explain a lot as to why there is such confusion.  My e-mail was from Pre-Reg also.

Maybe CCI has decided that if they are shipping badges, there is no need for a barcode anymore.

Is there anyone International out there that has received their confirmation e-mail?  Does the e-mail contain a barcode?

I have a bar code in my confirmation e-mail, but... it was from pre-registration, not open registration.

I know I'm a little late to the party but I just wanted to say that I've spoken to a few people about the barcode thing.

PreReg badge e-mails have a barcode

OpenReg badge e-mails do not have a barcode

I have no idea why.

That definitely seems like the pattern we've been seeing.  It's very strange.  I actually suspect it could be an error on EPIC's part...

I called CCI this morning, the woman who picked up told me there shouldn't be a barcode on your E-mail confirm, just as long as your confirm number is there.

Like the rest of you, yes I did get a barcode after pre-reg and no barcode after open reg.

Thanks for letting us know, Andrew!  That's definitely an interesting new development, most likely related to shipping badges this time around.

I think there does not need to be a barcode  because they are mailing the badges... that's my thought

Our friends surprised my wife and I with badges.  I got an email with a barcode but my wife hasn't gotten anything.  Our friends sent us screen caps of the purchase so we have the reference numbers.  My wife used the contact us button on the Member ID page but hasn't heard anything yet.  The buyer is going to contact them as well.
