Not yet - later today when the schedule gets pieced together it'll be opened to registered members

I doesn't look like you can pay via PayPal on the registration site. Don't fancy just giving CC details direct to the events site. Any thoughts on whether this might change in the future. I was going to register but this has put me off for now!

We have no way to change the payment tools from the scheduling & registration site.  It's a third party set of software that we use to keep the schedules straight & build all the channels we need in Discord.

Sorry  :'(

You can do what I did and get a small pre paid credit card (25 was the smallest I could find), and use that.

If there is any money left on it you can send a paypal invoice to yourself.

You could have probably done it through Paypal without the prepaid CC. A Paypal Key acts as a virtual credit card tied to your Paypal Wallet balance:

https://www.paypal.com/us/smarthelp/article/what-is-paypal-key-and-where-can-i-use-it-faq4240

The key generates a number that acts like a CC and is accepted as a Mastercard.

Paypal isn't really any more secure than other credit services, it's just convenient. Merchants often avoid using it because Paypal has historically charged some of the highest merchant fees in the payment processing industry.

Being able to Google shit better than your clients is a legit career skill.

That paypal key must be a thing available to Amercans, or at least is not something that shows up in Paypal Canada .

Last time I ordered a 25 dollar gift card from Amazon to pay for it. Then just put the remainder of the money in my Amazon funds (like a gift card).

PayPal key is also not available in Germany either.

How would using an Amazon gift card work? What would you fill in as CVC?

What people were doing was buying a prepaid credit card, like you often find at the supermarket. Once you use it for registration, you take the balance and use it for an Amazon purchase or to buy yourself some kind of gift card to convert it to something you would actually use
