SXSW Shopping Cart Help

Purchasing a badge, submitting an application and booking your hotel for SXSW 2014 just got a whole lot easier with our brand-spankin' new SXSW Shopping Cart! Get started by following these two easy steps:

Choose Your Item

If you are wanting to purchase a badge or fill out an application for SXSW 2014, choose which item you would like and then click the "Add to Cart" button. Adding an item to your cart will allow you to begin the process of filling out your registration or application information.

Saving and/or Editing

Some of the forms can be a bit long, so if you started a form and need to come back to it later, simply click the "finish later" text at the top of the form and, voila, it will be saved in your shopping cart! Additionally, if you want to make any changes to your registration or application before checkout, simply go into your shopping cart and click "edit this item".


When you are ready, click "checkout" and all complete registrations and applications will appear as "Items Ready for Checkout" along with the total price of all complete items. You can remove items you do not wish to pay for at that time by unselecting the checkbox next to the item.

After filling out your credit card information, click the "Finish Transaction" button at the bottom of the screen to complete your purchase. You can view your purchase history anytime by clicking "My Account" in the upper right corner of the screen and then clicking "History".

Incomplete Registrations/ Applications:

If you have an incomplete item in your cart, it will not appear in items ready for checkout and you will see the following text:

"(you have 1unfinished item(s))"

You can complete an unfinished form at anytime by returning to your shopping cart and clicking "edit this item".

Book Your Hotel

If you have purchased a badge (aka registration) to SXSW 2014, you will now be able to book your hotel. Please note that you can only book a hotel after you have purchased a registration. Take a look at our hotels page to view a grid of available official SXSW hotels.
