Tips for Registration and Payment

PayPal Caveats and Workarounds

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:

1. Request that a check be mailed to:

 PO Box 11926
 St. Paul, MN 55111

The registrants' name must be included so that we know for whom to apply payment.

2. MCTLC Treasurer can forward an invoice to the person who will be paying but that person's contact information must be in our system. Go here to add your name to our mailing list. That person may then use PayPal to process a credit card.

3. Make payment and request reimbursement.

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.
