Payment options for registration

Are you a Director, Presenter, Reviewer or Conference Manager in need of help? Want to talk to us about workflow issues? This is your forum.

Forum rules
This forum is meant for general questions about the usability of OCS from an everyday user's perspective: conference managers, presenters, and directors are welcome to post questions here, as are librarians and other support staff. We welcome general questions about the role of OCS and how the workflow works, as well as specific function- or user-related questions.

What to do if you have general, workflow or usability questions about OCS:

1. Read the documentation. We've written documentation to cover from OCS basics to system administration and code development, and we encourage you to read it.

2. take a look at the tutorials. We will continue to add tutorials covering OCS basics as time goes on.

3. Post a question. Questions are always welcome here, but if it's a technical question you should probably post to the OCS Technical Support subforum; if you have a development question, try the OCS Development subforum.

Payment options for registration

Our conference organizers would like to offer both options for forms of payment. It looks like OCS requires us to choose one option for registrants..

i.e. We'd like to offer registrants the option of choosing a Manual Fee Payment OR a PayPal Fee Payment.

Is this possible ?

That's a good idea...making both options available

If one were to simply offer the necessary bank account information, that could be done by using an extra field for the "ABOUT" page...or in an unorthodox way, it could be added to the description of the registration types...

But it would be better if some information about the bank deposit - registration fee payment were required for the completion of the manual registration option...like entering some details about the date of the bank deposit, the number of the receipt of payment, an upload field for a scanned image/copy of the back receipt etc, that could be used to verify the registration...
In this case, where the actual payment is not part of the registration process, the completion of the registration steps should create an account "to be verified", "under review" or with a "processing" attribute, i.e. with some permissions restrictions, until the payment is verified by the registrations manager.
