Wizathon now offers 2 options with regards to offsetting registration processing fees. 

A. Offer registrants the option to choose to pay the Wizathon & credit card processing fees .

B. Include a mandatory Signup Fee per ticket. 


Please Note:  These 2 options are mutually exclusive. If you choose to use the mandatory Signup Fees, if a registrant makes a donation at the time of his registration, he will not have the option to cover the processing fees related to the donation portion of his registration.

You may also create a discount code to remove these mandatory Signup fees for offline registrations. Please see here for details.
