Tips for Registration and Payment
We use Paypal to process online payments. A PayPal account is not necessary, however currently it requires that the registrant also be the cardholder since it automatically populates that person's name into its system.
For registrants whose organization will make payment, there are three options:
Register as a Group
Register your colleagues as a group using the "register a guest" option.
The person who registers the group should be the person making payment. In other words, the person whose name is on the credit card should be the primary registrant since PayPal will require that person to be the cardholder. If the cardholder is not in the group use one of the methods outlined above.
