Please search Microsoft’s site for specific documentation to your browser version. Please contact EvilleCon Website department via the Contact Us page if you have difficulties with checkout.
Q: What is a Confirmation Code and how do I get one?
A: An EvilleCon Confirmation Code is a code that is used to identify confirmed badges at EvilleCon’s Pre-Registration table.
Once payment has been processed, a single Confirmation Code is issued for any badges purchased on a single transaction. It is unique to that transaction and e-mailed to the billing e-mail address, as entered in the checkout page. Please allow 2 to 3 business days following receipt of a confirmed payment, for this code to be issued. Paypal e-check transactions may take longer to process than credit card payments.
NOTE: this is NOT the Paypal Transaction ID or your Purchase ID; Confirmation Codes will only be sent from an EvilleCon.com e-mail address.
Please contact EvilleCon Registration department via the Contact Us page if you did not receive your Confirmation Code after the allowable time frame.
Q: How is my e-mail address used for registration?
A: The billing e-mail address for registration is used for communicating with you regarding your badges and purchases. We do not share or sell any of your billing or registration information with third parties. The individual e-mail address may be used for assisting in identification at pre-registration at the convention or for contacting VIP’s with instructions for their badges before the convention.
