Occasionally, you will receive a badge that will not upload to your Badgr backpack. If a badge won't upload, it may be invalid or the recipient id information does not match.
Unfortunately, some issuers of badges have shut down since their badges were originally awarded, and those badges have become unverifiable by Badgr
Checking for invalid badges
To check if your badge is valid go to BadgeCheck.io. If you have trouble, follow theses step-by-step instructions.
Re-uploading your zipped file
If you have confirmed that your badges are valid through BadgeCheck.io, you may try uploading the zipped file to your backpack again. Depending on how many badges are in the zipped file you may need to try uploading the file multiple times.
Uploading your badges one by one
Some users have reported success with uploading badges one by one to the Badgr Backpack. To do this, unzip your folder to access each badge. You can click the link in the email to restart the process or use the Add Badge button when signed in to your backpack.
Adding additional email addresses to your Badgr account
Some badges may not upload because your email address does not match. If the original issuer used any uppercase characters in your email address, add the email address as it was awarded and try again. You may need to add additional email address(es) to your Badgr account or contact us to update case variants, and instructions for how to do this can be found here.
When adding email case variants, you may see the message, Unable to add email: Email already exists. Although you see this message and do not see the email case variant you attempted to add, it was added to your account but is not visible. If you have difficulties with this process, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for help.
