Payment options for registration

Postby jburpee » Tue Feb 15, 2011 12:10 pm


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 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.
