Hi,

I have registered on the database and would like to pay by bank transfer, however, when I click the link for the payment details it takes me to a site saying 'invalid module ID'.  Are payments to register open yet or is the just an error?

Thanks

Chris

Gordon, is it possible to just pay in cash at the conference site?

Dear Philip,

Sorry to say that we accept only credit cards to avoid troubles at the onsite.

Dear Philip

It sounds so simple, doesn't it, at least from the payer's point of view.

However, from MAJ's point of view, in particular from the treasurer's point of view, handling cash on the day is a lot of extra work and responsibility. We are expecting 200 or more people to attend the conference. If they all paid 10,000 yen cash on the day, the poor treasurer would slaving away during the conference trying to keep the books balanced and having the responsibility of all that cash. Furthermore, the badges, tickets and other registration documents could not be printed until each person had paid. That would cause a significant bottleneck. Would you like to be the 200th person in the queue for the printer?

Therefore, we respectfully ask that you find a way to pay in advance, either by PayPal or Bank transfer. Then you, indeed all our delegates, can print the registration documents before the conference starts, and be ready for a clean, early start.

What's more, our hard-working conference committee members, including our diligent and industrious treasurer, will also be able to enjoy and participate in the conference sessions.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Best regards,
Gordon

Thanks Gordon. Your point is well taken. I will try to get it done by Paypal or Bank transfer either today or Monday, if that's not too late.
