Paying Fees & Video Uploads
March 21st, 2017 | Posted by Ryan Grainger
We've had a massive number of signups over the past few months, and many teams have been created. But we must stress that even though a team exists you must pay for teams ahead of the event deadline.
- Purchase Orders take time to process so we're requesting they be sent to us at least 2 weeks before to account for delays.
- We do accept payment via Stripe for those not wanting to wait, the whole process is automated.
We have now activated Video Uploads for Before Event Participation (BEPs), this is also where any challenges that require video should be uploaded, we are limiting the format to MP4 only as it is the easiest to work with, if the video matches our criteria we will upload them to our YouTube channel for the world to see!
