The Invasion 2018 / Re: Gatecon Ticket Types & Prices 2018

Quick question regarding platinum tickets.  Will people who pay in full get priority over people who choose a payment plan?  Example, if Susie is first in and orders 3 tickets on a payment plan and I am second in and order three tickets but pay in full, who gets the first three tickets?  Because with Platinum tickets "seats in the front row will be assigned in the order purchases are received, starting at the middle of the row and working out to the edges"

How is payment by PayPal set up? If I understand their fees page correctly, whether or not we pay a fee depends on whether we are just "sending money" or if we are "buying something".

When I entered my details into my newly created account, the "state" field is required even though there is a "province" field under it. I just put N/A as state and filled in the province. I hope that's ok.

I've just emailed US Immigration to see if we are able to visit the USA to run a convention and what visa would be needed.

I understand why you choose Vancouver, makes perfect sense and i wish i could go.  I am just saying if you ever wanted to move the con around, you should consider Chicago. Creation Entertainment left a huge hole that i think Gatecon could easily fill.  :)

Since I will be trying to lead a group of 50 high school students through Toronto on the 26th, I have asked a friend to get a ticket for me. I have already set up a new account.

Now, since I want to go for a pricier ticket and planned on doing the payment plan: When my friend orders my ticket, will she also have to pay for it? Can she order my ticket and I can pay you with a payment plan?

I doubt this is logistically possible, but just for clarification. If it is not possible, do you know anyone who is interested in buying a healthy kidney? :-)

The official answer from the team members handling payments....

'No, the person who does the transaction is responsible for the payments. Can't buy for someone else and have another person pay for it.'
I think we might of made an assumption that you would be using Paypal to make your payment and as Richard posted it is not possible due to the way our website integrates with Paypal.  That said if you were to consider using Transferwise instead it would be possible.  Your friend would need to order the ticket in your  name and give your email address (it needs to be the same one you will use for the payment plan).  Then you would need an account with Transferwise and make the payment/s.    PS I'm checking the going rate for kidneys :)

Mmmmmm Steak and Kidney Pie. 😄 You know in my country we vuy our kidneys over the counter!  😂

If I pay with paypal, will paypal will convert the money into US?

Paypal typically handles the conversions. You may still end up with a 'foreign trx fee' from your bank.
Paypal do offer the conversion but you need to check their rates.  We are using  Transferwise for our currency conversions, which is why we are offering it as an additional way to pay.  They specialise in foreign exchange transfers and are very competitive as they use money market exchange rates and list their fees as a separate charge before you make the transaction. You also avoid a foreign trx fees as you pay Tranferwise in your local currency.

The main reason we choose Vancouver is because of the local actors and crew who tend to call in and also there is a whole host of filming locations for our ever-popular locations bus tour.

Who knows, though, further down the road?
