Question Pay Pal or other credit card for team registration?

As our committee is working on our 2012 event, the idea was presented of offering on line registration with Pay Pal or another credit card system to pay for team registration.

If a credit card option for paying for your registration for a contest was

available, would you use it?

Yes? No?

If not, why not.

We do not want to go to the trouble and expense of setting this up unless we have some idea that the system will be used and appreciated.

We want your opinions.

I would very much prefer credit card payment for competition payment, but it would really only make the most sense if you also had an on-line web form for the signup.

Did not make that clear in the initial post.

Having an online registration to fill in the fields and click "submit" is what we are considering for team registration.

Does not make sense to do that unless there is a payment option to go with it.

I used online registration for my judges last year and it worked great, was appreciated by the judges, and was easier for me too. Applicants received a copy of their data by return email to signify successful registration.

The success of that system with judges - with no fee payment mechanism needed, prompted us to consider this type of registration and payment for the teams.

Does that clarify?

Just to be clear on something though, I will not participate in a purely PayPal system. I am interested in having credit card payments. I know that PayPal (along with Google and Amazon) allow credit card payments, and that is great.

I like the paypal option and would only use it. I understand dmprantz's not a purely paypal (kinda), but I wouldn't use one that doesn't have/use Paypal because I dont want my credit card information out there in too many places.

Just to clarify a bit more, the reason why I would not use a PayPal only system is because PayPal has a reputation for seizing funds. You may think this will never happen to you, but if it only happened to people who expected it, I think there would be a lot fewer complaints. Before you accept transfers with PayPal, think about what you would do if they decided to seize your entry fees. As some one who has worked in the payments industry, I would rather work with a company who is legally obligated to give me my money and does not have a questionable reputation rather than some one who refuses to be a bank and can seize my money at any time. I like Amazon payments, but that's me.

Thanks to everyone who has responded so far.
There is representation from coast to coast and border to border - impressive.

dm - I see what you are talking about. Gave us something to look into before we enter into any agreements. Appreciate that.

Keep the comments coming.
