Good Afternoon All:

Stemming from the PCI/CC talk a few months ago, I ended up looking into
regonline to replace an antiquated registration system as well as handle
credit card transactions for a non-profit conference (AIRUM<http://airum.org/>)
with which many people in the IR office are involved.  There is actually a
multi-institutional committee which handles the conference, this is another
reason we are hoping to use a SaaS registration system. The committee was
very interested, and I am hoping to explore regonline and the alternatives
a bit further this spring. I had a few talking points I'd like to know,
please respond to the list if they apply to many.

1.) Have you used regonline, and what was your general experience with the
product?
2.) Did you use regonline's payment gateway? If so, how does regonline
handle payouts, once the registration cash is collected?
3.) Did your event have multiple registration options, and did it work well
(e.g. conference + pre-conference workshop, with different price points)
4.) Are their any Open Source/Cheaper alternatives which are worth looking
into as a non-profit who is hosting a conference?
5.) Any other general advice or experience is much appreciated.

Thanks for the time,

Dave
