In Response To: Re: Paying Online ()
Thanks for the compliment! It "only" took me about a year and it's still not complete..lol. Getting information from folks in a timely manner is like pulling teeth.
Paypal is fairly easy to work with. I didn't have any problems setting it up. I put together a "dummy" registration to test the system before I made it accessible to everyone. The transaction went smoothly.
We will probably use paypal this weekend for our reunion for those that show up and have not paid their registration fees. We have decided only to take cash or a credit card (Paypal in this case)payment. So we'll see how Paypal works for us this weekend.
I think having Paypal for your reunion would be great being that it will be in Nassau (gosh I'm jealous...lol)and the mail issue. Since you are already working on the 2006 reunion, family can pay for their registration fees now with a credit card and have it paid off by reunion time.
I'll keep you posted!
First, great website! ;-)
Second, let us know how Paypal works out for you. Were they easy to work with, or did you have problems? And even though you only had one person pay online, you're right; more people will take advantage of this payment method as they become more comfortable with the internet over time.
Personally, I think we're going to have a number of people request it for our 2006 reunion because it's in Nassau and by now people know how long it takes for mail/checks/registration forms to travel there. Talk about snail mail! ;-) That's why I'm interested to see how it works out for you. Thanks!
