ONLINE PAYMENT SYSTEM
The Online payment system is the fastest and easiest method to pay your registration fee and we recommend you to follow this method. The guidelines for the online payment system are as follows:
STEPS TO FOLLOW WHEN YOU PAY YOUR REGISTRATION FEE ONLINE,
Step 1 – Register for the conference and get the invoice with the link for the payment
Once you registered for the conference, you will be receiving an email with the invoice and customized link. You can make the payment online using the link
Step 2 – Click the below button to pay
Once you click this button online payment form will appear on your screen. Apply your registration fee in the form as per the invoice you received. Online payment system (Visa/MasterCard) requires you to add an extra 4% to the applicable registration fee as bank service charges. This 4% will be automatically added to the applicable registration fee when you are ready to make the online payment.
IF YOU COULD NOT PAY VIA YOUR DEBIT/CREDIT CARD?
Sometime you may try to pay via this method and fail. It usually happens due to the security process of the banks and means that you need to activate the card for foreign transactions.
If so, follow the below procedure to ensure that the money will be properly transferred:
1) Inform your card holding bank that your payment failed.
2) Inform the bank that you wish to perform an international payment through your card and request them to allow/ verify your card for international payments.
3) Confirm that the card has been verified and continue with the payment.
4) After you get the notification that the payment transaction was completed successfully, send a copy of the receipt for our reference.
