Electronic Payments

The West Kingdom currently uses PayPal to process our electronic payments.  At this time, PayPal is fully available for Pre-registration, and available in beta for at-the-gate sales.  If you have questions about the process that are not answered by this website, please email the PayPal Deputy Exchequers.  If you are new to PayPal as a business, please check out their website for more information on how they work.   

The PayPal program is now open to all branches in good standing.  Events MUST be submitted 90 days in advance (or sooner!) for pre-registration and 60 days in adavnce (or sooner) for at-the-gate sales.  The deputies will entertain late submissions on a case by case basis.  Go to the SELLING! header farther down this page for sign-up details.

SELLING! - Steps for event stewards and officers wanting to use Electronic Payment at their events

  1. Review the current West Kingdom PayPal Policies available here
  2. Check with your exchequer to make sure your branch is in good financial standing with Kingdom.
  3. No less than 90 days (Pre-reg) OR no less than 60 days (pay-at-the-gate) before your event starts, fill-in the Event PayPal Authorization Request Form.  The PayPal Deputies will build your event from this information.
  4. Review the event specific pre-registration form sent to you and the other officers by the PayPal Deputies.  Remember to include your constable in charges information if you are asking for Paypal at the gate.
  5. Ask for changes or indicate approval.  
  6. Once approved, the PayPal Deputies will place a link to your form on this website.  You are welcome to link to your form or this webpage in any of your event promotion.
  7. Through out the time preregistration is open, the deputies will create invoices, track payment, and cancel invoices as applicable.  If you have a WK GSuite account, you may have viewing access to the form responses so that you can track the progress of your event.  You may not have access to the West Kingdom PayPal Account..  
  8. After your event pre-registration closes and PayPal finalizes all your invoices (takes 7-10 days), you will be sent a list of registered names and a list of cancelled invoices (if any).  The PayPal Deputies will release your funds minus any fees.  The Kingdom Exchequer will make out a check to the branch and mail it the exchequer at the address on file.
  9. After your event closes for at-the-gate registration, the PayPal deputy will process your paper work, and release your funds minus any fees.  You will receive your funds from Kingdom via check.  This process may take a couple of weeks.
