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

We have a US bank account that can receive online payments in USD,  we will be listing the account details on the website
If you are able to pay bills online you should be able to pay into our account.  The bank account will only accept US Dollars.
Ian,  Will the bank info be posted or linked on the ticket ordering site so we know at that time where to send our Electronic payment?

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.'

The bank details will be posted on the website with full instructions on how to pay.  When you have reserved your ticket on the Gatecon site you will receive an order acknowledgement confirming your order,  it will have the Gatecon payment reference that will need to be submitted with your payment.  You can then log in to your bank account and make the payment.

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 :)

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.

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.

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".

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"

Because of the low number of Platinum tickets available there is a  limit in place on the shopping cart. The maximum number of Platinum tickets that can be bought by one person in a single transaction is 2.  There is no limit on the number of transactions you can make but each would be limited to 2 Platinum tickets.

After selecting your tickets and entering the ticket holder details, the payment options are presented - at this point you have options to pay with Paypal,  Transferwise or within the US, electronic bank transfers (full payment or installments for either).  When you have made your selection and reviewed your order you then press the PAY NOW button - at this point your ticket is on hold  If you elect to pay by Paypal you will be directed to the Paypal site to make your payment.  If you want to pay by the other methods the tickets will be held for 14 days.

The tickets are reserved as they are ordered and then validated when they have been paid for so there is no advantage gained with the speed of payment.
