Just checked on Tranferwise - the payment for the remaining money due on my ticket was processed today.  YAY!!!!  Now all I have to do is safe up for the flight, hotel, food, photo ops and autographs  :) ;)

Warning to ticket buyers:  I will not use Transferwise ever again.  I used it as we were told we would get a discount on the Gatecon tickets.  However, unlike Paypal, it was treated as a cash advance on my credit card.  I was not aware of this.  In addition to Transferwise's fee, I was charged a credit card fee and interest on the "cash advance".  No savings at all.

I used my bank card and wasn't charged anything extra by my bank when I used Transferwise.  (There was a $3 fee charged by Transferwise, but that was something I was aware of).  ATfan, I noticed that you're from Canada. I'm from the US, so maybe that could be the difference.

I've been contemplating about flying to Seattle on Southwest (I should have enough points for a RT by then) and then take the train from Seattle to Vancouver.  Any suggestions?

Submitted a transfer via TransferWise for the next two payments on my Platinum ticket.  It was a piece of cake since the info was saved in my account with them.  Transfer is schedule to go through on Monday, the 18th.  Thanks for introducing me to this fantastic service ♥♥♥♥

Hello darling!
Obviously the autographs and all are not included in the ticket price but I didn't have much money for anything last year and I still got to see a helluva lot of the guests. If like last time some guest set up shop in the corridors and near the vendors room to have items signed and all. If nothing else and so long as politeness is at the forethought of all they always seem eager to chat and just learn about us and our point of view on their character. They also frequently have projects ongoing that they will seemingly never be bothered talking about in the width of what is allowed. It's very down to earth for most guests and I loved that last year. I'm at work right now so I can't say more but I'll be sure to drop you a private message to chat more and answer anybquestion you may have about conventions in general.

Until then, have a good evening sweetie.

I totally agree with you.  I was a volunteer at the Chicago Stargate Cons for the past six years and I'd say the majority of actors that had tables in the vending room or hallway were more than willing to talk to the fans.  I think they realize that some of the fans can't afford photos or autographs and will spend a few minutes talking to you. I'd just keep it short if there was a long line.

I have a question for someone who's knowledgeable about Transferwise. This is for a friend. Is it possible to cancel a completed Transferwise transaction for a Gatecon ticket and then start over?

Check with Ian Rogers.  His email is ian.rogers@gatecon.com

Just curious, how long until our tickets aren't "pending" anymore?

I believe it's 14 days

So you will be assigned a row and not a seat, giving you the freedom to choose a seat within that row. Platinum ticket holders will have assigned seats as before. Your row will be assigned in the order your ticket is reserved rather than when payment has been made.

If we want to sit together (in the same row), that means our tickets will need to be ordered together, right?

If so, is there a limit on how many tickets can be purchased in one transaction? Can one person buy 4 x GOLD tickets in one transaction for themselves and 3 friends?

And with the banquet tickets, in the one transaction can the person order 4 convention tickets and 4 banquet tickets? Or do you have to purchase banquet tickets separately to the con tickets?

Sorry for all the questions. We just want to make sure the person who is purchasing on our behalf knows what they need to do.

Meshel73, Don't apologize for asking questions.  My dad always use to say "The only time questions are bad, are when you DON'T ask them"

I'm wondering the same thing as PamK1950.
I'm #9 on the list and my t sounds as if I probably have no chance if the first 8 want 3-4 tots.
So bummed...ll😭

I'm #32, but they are going to be pulling random numbers so there is a chance of being able to get a platinum.  It all depends on how many tickets are "taken" when they get to your number. 

If I'm interpreting this correctly let say they pull numbers 3, 20, 44, 9, 32, 17, 10, 13 etc.  If #3, 20 & 44 each get five tix, there would be ten left when it's your number. 

If you get two tix there would be eight left when it's my turn. I'm just getting one, so we're down to seven for #17.

If #17, 10 and 13 buy the remaining tickets, everyone else will be put on a waiting list in case someone doesn't pay or make payment arrangements within the 14 day allotted time period

(Don't quote me on this, this is just my interpretation of what they posted)

Just wondering....If you're one of the lucky ones, how much time  do you have to put your order in after you receive the email?   And what happens if the first five numbers drawn all want to purchase five tickets?  Are the rest of us out of luck?

I've been to London and Windsor so I'd like to try another area so I picked Birmingham.   As a teen back in 1964 I always wanted to go to Liverpool (yeah, yeah, yeah)  8)

So I'm assuming I'd transfer US$ to Brittish Pounds?
