- Most Common Events: $2.25 to $3.00 per person
People that pay by credit card are charged $3. People that pay by check, or are complimentary, are free as long as do not exceed 25% of the total registrants (which means the average price per registrant is $2.25). We do have a minimum of $500 so our fee is the greater of $500 OR the number of registrants multiplied by the fee per person, whichever is greater.
- More Complex Events: $3.75 to $5.00 per person
For the more complex events (many different prices, large questionaire on the registration form, use of many of the features listed below) people that pay by credit card are charged $5. People that pay by check or are complimentary are free as long as do not exceed 25% of the total registrants (which means the average price per registrant is $3.75). Usually, we do have a minimum of $750 so our fee is normally the greater of $750 OR the number of registrants multiplied by the fee per person, whichever is greater.
|This applies to all our standard pricing:
- There is no set-up or upfront fee
- We ask for no money, or any obligation on your part, to set up the event to your satisfaction
- Even after you tell us to make the event LIVE, we don't require any payment from you until you have collected registration fees by credit card in excess of a predetermine amount, or one month passes from the date the event goes LIVE.
- If you want to ask some questions, leave a phone number on our contact form and we'll call you back quickly.

- No charge registration
Even if you charge for your event, every event has
a code-protected no charge page for registration. This might be
used for sponsors, staff members, and others you want to give a
- Payment by check
The registrant uses the registration form and elects to pay by check. The information is entered into the database and the registrant is instructed via online acknowledgement
and email to send the check to your address. When
the check is received you can mark the registration
as paid in the administrator.
- Payment by credit card online
The registrant is asked for credit
card information during the registration and the card
is approved, or rejected, in a few seconds. If the
card is rejected, polite messaging and a reason are
provided; the registrant can easily make
simple corrections to the numbers or expiration date. Note: we
never store credit card information in our database as a security
- Payment by credit card by fax
If registrants are uncomfortable providing their
card information online they can optionally use our fax option.
their normal contact information online together with the answers
to any survey questions and at the end of the
process we provide a form for them to print out. They manually
enter their credit card information on the form and then fax it
to you. You can process
the card online through your administrator, or through other systems
you have such as a non-online merchant account with a terminal
- Payment with a purchase order
We ask for the PO information on the registration
form, and then in your administrator, you can mark the PO as confirmed
or paid when appropriate.
- Payment by wire transfer
When registrants chose the wire transfer
option, we automatically insert the transfer instructions
in their email acknowledgement and online receipt.
When the payment is received you can mark the registration
as paid in your administrator.
- Multiple registration fee options
Each form can have options for each
price offered, e.g., member, discount,
complimentary, press, etc. -- all on one event and one
set of reports. Prices can be on the honor system
or protected by special
or we issue to you to pass onto registrants.
- Copies of emails to others
You can elect to have copies of the
administrator email notification of a registration
and/or the registrant acknowledgment sent to others
- Automatic event capacity limits
The total number of people allowed
for the event can be set. When this number is reached,
registrants are informed the event is full. See below
for capacity limits for event workshops or promotional
- Automatic capacity limits within an event
Automatic capacity limits, within
a single event, can be set: a) for sessions, workshops
and the like, b) for each location (or date) where essentially
the same event is held each time, or c) when you want to offer
a limited number of registrations at a special price.
- Registration page hit marketing report
This is a report to determine the effectiveness
of your event marketing. It provides information on how many people
visited the event registration page, and of those that visited
how many actually consummated or completed a registration. The
report provides information on the consummation percentage as a
function of date, promotional code, visitor's organization, and
referring page or link. When used with our special marketing codes
this can give you information on which marketing stimuli create
the most registrations.
- Popup explanations on the registration form
Sometimes, it is necessary or desirable
to provide extra information for any item on the
registration form. Rather than clutter up the form
that many may not wish to ready, we add an info button which,
when clicked, opens a popup window with the additional
information. Information could include explained
pricing, policies, workshop content, or virtually anything that
assists the registrant while filling in the registration form.
- OneOnlyTM codes to protect special prices
If you have pricing that is not available to the general public, we provide promotional codes or encoded links for you to give to your preferred registrants. These codes could be used (and shared) by anyone that has them. To prevent sharing of these we can provide codes/links that can only be used once. Anyone trying to use them again is prevented from registering.
- Pre-filling forms & posting data to your database
If you maintain your own online accessible
database, then you can automatically pre-fill our
registration forms. Similarly, when a registration
is completed we can automatically send the registration information
back to your database.
- No software to install; you just need a browser
- We do all the set-up for you.
This saves you a lot of time since most of our competitors have self-help wizards which limit your flexibility and take time to learn. We provide a semi-custom service at competitive prices which allows us to provide many rich features that are difficult to implement in self-help wizards.
- Your forms are branded with your colors and logo
We closely match colors and fonts to your web site and install your logo on the forms and throughout the site. Optionally, we can fit into a frame on your site to be completely seamless .
- Every form can have customized fields
You can chose the fields you want on each form, and
whether entries for each field are mandatory or optional, or even omitted from the form altogether (e.g.,
company name and fax number could be optional, or not even present on the
form while all the other fields must be filled in). Also, you can define additional fields for your particular event.
- You can have a questionnaire/survey for each form
Question answers can be clickable drop downs, checkboxes, radio buttons, or typed-in text. Questions can be optional or mandatory. Each form for your event (e.g., for different sets of discounted group prices) can have its own set up questions. Questions can be different for those people the primary registrant adds as guests and colleagues.
- Use a single event form for multiple
Seminars, educational classes, and monthly meetings are examples that can use this feature. The event details, except for, say, the date/location, would be the same so the same form is used with a drop down menu to select the date/location.
- Our web site is friendly to the visually impaired
Unlike many sites, our web pages are designed so the visibly impaired can
enlarge the text on any page in their browser. Just try clicking on
in the left hand margin and choosing one of the
people can be registered at a time
One person is the primary or paying registrant and enters his or her information
first. To register guests, colleagues,
etc., the primary registrant pays for all at one time, and
then adds the guests' contact information to register them. Alternatively,
the primary registrant, once he or she has registered can send the
group a link for them to self register. The forms for the additional
registrants can have different fields and survey questions
from the forms for the paying registrant.
- Workshops and Seminars are supported
Within the limitations of each price plan (the number of questions
allowed) we can set up workshops/seminars with different tracks—in some of the price plans automatic capacity limits can be installed
when your space
- Comprehensive validation of collected information
Every form we create has underlying logic to prevent registrant mistakes,
and to enforce or prevent choices you asked us to implement. For example,
we can prevent a registrant choosing a combination of price items that
are not allowed by you, enforce answers to questions,
place maximum or minimum limits on the quantities for an item (useful for
group pricing), or make sure that you get a registrant's company name by
forcing an entry on the form.
You specify all the conditions. This kind of rule setting prevents registrants
making improper choices, or prompts for allowable choices, and thus eliminates
manual correction of information
by you later. This is particularly important if you take fees by credit
card; you don't want to be issuing credits or additional transactions as
they will add to your fees from
the credit card company.
- Automatic formatting of information for a clean database
We automatically format information typed in by registrants so that names
and addresses have the correct capitalization (i.e., 'Ted Adams' not 'ted
adams' or 'TED ADAMS' 'McAdams' not 'Mcadams'). If the registrant doesn't
like what we do automatically,
once they subsequently make a change we no longer auto-correct it.
- Precise language, messaging and instructions
We guide registrants through the entire process. This, together with our form validation, prevents you getting phone calls with registration
- Custom messaging when an event closes
You can chose any message you like. You can direct them to go the 'door', call you, email you, etc. If you don't give us anything, we put in our standard message that "Online registration is closed"
- Session timeout warning to prevent data loss
- Pricing can be multi or single choice with radio buttons
If you have more than one price for an event there are multiple options. You can list all the prices on a single form so people can chose any or all in the list, or you can list them with radio buttons so only one can be chosen. Or you can have separate forms protected by special codes to protect special pricing for, say, members. We have the flexibility in the methods we use to display pricing to accommodate most situations.
- Flexible form to enter special quoted prices
Occasionally, you may want to give someone a special price that is not on any form you specify. We provide you a link/code to access a special form where it is easy to enter any price on behalf of a registrant. Alternatively, you could provide the link to the registrant with the quoted price, and they could register themselves.
- No charge form for sponsors and other VIPs
For sponsors, special guests, organization members and others, you get
a special form with each event for people to register at no charge. Two
types of no charge forms are available; one with the normal registrant
survey/questions and one without.
- Auto-checked quantity and group pricing for discounts, etc.
You can specify special pricing for group (i.e., a lower price for groups of 5 or more) or for a "table of 10" for sponsorship groups. These are checked to ensure people cannot cheat.
- Receipts and acknowledgments can be re-sent
If a registrant loses a receipt or an acknowledgment they can easily be
replaced by the administrator with a few clicks.

in one place—the database we provide you
- All payments are made directly to you
Credit card payments
are verified online in a few seconds and deposited in your
bank account in 2 to 4 business days, or, alternatively credit card
numbers can be faxed to you for processing on your terminal
if you want to use your current manual credit card capability. Checks, POs and/or wire transfers are sent directly to you.
- Acknowledgements and online credit card payment receipts are automatically emailed to registrants
immediately emailed when the registration takes place. Administrators
can receive copies. Also administrators can generate copies to send
to registrants when requested, or re-send an acknowledgement when a
registration is changed.
- Email or online acknowledgements can be customized
We can add
custom text to acknowledgments. The email acknowledgement is the one
thing registrants are most likely to keep and bring to the event as
proof of registration. Thus, it is an ideal document to insert items
like directions to the event, a link to a map, highlights of an agenda,
other promotional links, etc.
- All registration information is available to you 24/7
site has a password protected Administrator to monitor and report all
registrant information. You have complete access to the information
we collect in a variety
of reports, including fast access to total registrants and money collected.
- Custom reports can be designed and saved
Reports can be customized with multiple criteria; each report design can be simply saved as a favorite or bookmark in your browser to be used whenever you need it.
- Reports can be download to your desktop
The entire database of your registrants, or your customized reports can be download to your desktop directly into Excel, or as a comma delimited file which can be imported into Access and many other desktop programs.
- Quickly perform credit card credits directly from within the Administrator
Just by clicking on the name of credit card paying registrant you can quickly perform a credit with email acknowledgments automatically generated.
- Name badges can be generated from the database
templates for name badges with and without logos. These can be mail
merged with your database to produce your labels. Each registration
form provides a separate field for the registrant's desired badge name.
The field is automatically prefilled with first and last name (or just
the first name if you specify that) as the registrant enters
information but the registrant can change
it as desired.

- Quickly perform refunds and cancellations for non-credit card transactions directly from within the Administrator
You can refund money or cancel registrations to maintain strict accounting of debits and credits.
- Register people directly through the Administrator
event is over you can add walk-in registrants through the Administrator,
or edit records for substitute attendees, misspelled names, email
- Print customized registration forms for offline/walk-in/at-door registrants
For each kind of pricing you have offered,
you can print out customized forms for at-door attendees
that duplicate the online form. The forms also include the
questionnaire/survey if that was available on the online
form. These forms can also be faxed to registrants not wishing
to register online.
- Email notifications of each registration or failed credit card transactions
Whenever a registration occurs the Administrator, or
others the Administrator designates, gets a brief email with the registration
information—generated from information already in your online database.
Additionally, if a credit card is not accepted, for whatever reason, you
are immediately notified of the failure just in case you'd like to contact
the registrant to assist in solving his or her problem; it could be as
as not using
a credit card you allow, an incorrect billing addresses, or less likely,
the credit card company declining credit on the card.
- Sending registrants copies of receipts or acknowledgments
Frequently registrants need another copy of their registration confirmation, or just an acknowledgement that you received their check. You can quickly do this with few clicks in the Administrator. You can send them an email and/or a link to a page that gives them their customized receipt/confirmation.

Our response time to support requests is normally with three rings on the phone, and within 30 minutes by email. In addition, we have the FAQs and our help pages in the Administrator.

to do so under the law or a court order.
