 I am a member, but the Member button on the Event registration page is greyed out.

Chapter members must log in to the website to be recognized as members.  The name entered in the registration form is not looked up to validate membership.  Anyone could be entering your name.

 My credit card is not being accepted.

ASTDSCC does not process your credit card.  We outsource that function to PayPal.  Therefore, it is PayPal or your bank that is rejecting your card information.  ASTDSCC has no control over this phase of registration. 
 

Having said that, there are some things to check.  This information is anecdotal information that has been collected from users' past experience.


A) When your credit card is rejected, and PayPal presents you with the input form for you to retry, check all of the fields.  For example, let's say you mistyped your credit card number.  After you correct it, check the Expiration Date field.  PayPal frequently clears that field (and sometimes the security number) field when it redisplays the input form.

B) Make sure the address matches the billing address.  If you are using your company's card, don't put your home address in the address field, and vice versa.  It has also been reported that PayPal does not always recognize "St." as the abbreviation for "Street", "Dr." for "Drive", etc.

C.) Your bank's system may not be responding.  With some financial institutions, if the system is busy, down for maintenance, or otherwise unavailable, it will simply reject your card without explanation.  Try again later.

D.) Try another browser.  This should not be happening, but the reality is that different browsers have different interpretations of Internet standards.

E. If you are registering for an event, let it go, and pay at the door.  Even if your card is rejected, you are registered, and our database shows that you owe the registration fee.

It is possible that we do not have your current email address in our email database.  Send email to info@astdscc.org requesting that we update your information.

If you are using your company email address, it is possible that the company's spam intervention is blocking our email.  We use Constant Contact for our bulk email, and some companies block all email from them.  Talk to your network administrators, or consider changing your email to your personal account.
