Once pricing has been decided you’re ready to set up registration. Here are some basic guidelines.

  • Use Eventbrite for registration and PayPal for payments (not Eventbrite payment processing).
  • Link the PayPal account for payment directly to the company that does the invoicing.
  • Keep registration fees below 100 USD / 70 EU - the lower the better to attract a more diverse group of attendees
  • Sell tickets on a first-come/first-serve basis that is completely open to the public
  • Offer “early bird” pricing (10% to 25% discount) to drive initial registration
  • Registration lists may NOT be used for commercial or marketing purposes
