Paypal is an easy way to pay online by credit card for your Congress registration, it maintains a very high degree of security and is very reliable - but you need to be aware of some points before starting:
If you do not already have a Paypal account then you will be required to fill in some basic details in order to open an account. This is completely FREE, and should only take a minute or two.
But . . . all Paypal accounts are initially 'unverified', which means you will have a spending limit of around US$1,000 / 500 UK pounds.
If you expect your total payment for the Brazil conference to be within this limit click here to proceed
If you need to pay more than that, then your Paypal account will have to be 'expanded/verified'.
to 'expand/verify' an account:
The obvious problem is that it can take some time before you receive your credit card statement by post. If you can access your card company's website then you might be able to read your statement online within 4 days, otherwise it could be up to a month - but this will NOT affect your discount for early payment!
When you proceed to the congress payment form, the first part is sent directly to the Congress organisers in Brazil - provided that arrives by the deadline for the discount then it won't matter if the actual payment is delayed due to 'verification' of your Paypal account.
