We will be incorporating a shopping cart function which will make it very simple for registrations and orders when paying at the time - payments will be securely processed through the shopping cart and will be real-time so no more problems with submitting incorrect credit card details and having to re-submit.
But for those who want to register for events and pay later, or those wishing to have the invoice raised in the name of a sponsor, the shopping cart will not be an option because of the requirement to pay at the time of registration.
An additional Registration Form will be introduced to cater to these situations. When they are submitted the information will be provided to us by email from the website and we can process these with the required flexibility. This is less secure than the shopping cart method so it is very important that our customers do not send credit card details via this form (this could conceivably be done by using a free-form text box provided on the form for comments).
As with all changes there is a chance of problems no matter how much we test before going live. If you come across a problem please email me at once so we can correct the this as soon as possible for you.
