No rly. Sold out
In contrast to previous years, where Kiwicon was a dodgy cash-only operation, Kiwicon 4 is a fully fledged eCommerce machine, with sophisticated fraud-detection and the latest in PCI DSS compliance (aka we outsauced the problem to PayPal).
To come to Kiwicon, you must buy a ticket on the website (or, if you're special, complete the shopping process using a magic code that we've given you) and fill in the details required, one ticket per purchase. The payment process uses PayPal, so you can pay with any mechanism they support - Credit Card or your existing PayPal account's ill-gotten gains from your endeavors at "affiliate marketing". If you're not familiar with PayPal, this means that we at no time actually get your Credit Card number... well, unless we owned PayPal. Which, for the record, we haven't. Also, before you rage, remember you don't actually have to set up a paypal account - you can just click "continue without creating an account" and use it like a normal CC processing gateway.
Once you've bought a ticket you have to pick it (and any merch up) at the Con, or on the Friday evening before at Early Registration. If you're not coming to the con, we can't ship you merch, cause we're just not that sophisticated.
If you're a corporate buying 5+ tickets, and doing a bunch of paypal transactions is complicated, then we can probably arrange for you to transfer us the money directly. We'll give you a set of one time discount codes for each of your staff to use when registering. Drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we can arrange this. Bear in mind that this is a manual process, and we've all got full time jobs, so it might be wise not to leave this till the last minute, or expect Amway-grade fervor.
Answers To Your Shopping Related Questions
Q: Do I get a GST receipt?
A: No, we are such a peasanty operation that we don't make enough money to be GST registered, so you dont get a GST receipt.
Q: Can I buy merch separately from a ticket?
A: Yes. But you might run into problems because your handle isn't unique. I'm sure you can figure out how to fix that.
Q: Can I buy merch at the con instead of pre ordering?
A: No. Hoodies are made to order, and while we may have some unallocated tshirts, I wouldn't count on it. If you want one, order it online.
Q: Can I pay cash instead?
A: If you're making a >5 ticket order, then, yes contact us via email like it says above, and we can issue you with a discount code for each person you've paid for to use to complete the ordering process.
Q: Can I buy more than one ticket?
A: Not on the same order. Orders are for one person, and a ticket is for one person. Two tickets per order would be crazy talk. Each person should register and pay for their own ticket. If you're paying for a group, then see above.
Q: Oooh, discount codes, I'm gonna hax joo!
A: Sure, buddy, sure. Our discount-weasel-detector.py has an itchy trigga finga. Do not taunt it, for it is quick to anger.
Q: WHAT? TICKETS ARE FIVE WHOLE DOLLARS MORE!!?!?! I'M NOT GONNA TAKE IT!
A: YES, TICKETS ARE FIFTY FIVE DOLLARS THIS YEAR. YES THATS FIVE DOLLARS MORE THAN 2007. WE KNOW THIS BECAUSE WE DECIDED THEY WOULD COST FIFTY FIVE DOLLARS. YOU DON'T NEED TO TELL US. YES THIS MEANS YOU CAN AFFORD ONE LESS BEER. NO, WE DON'T CARE. IF YOU DON'T GET FIFTY FIVE DOLLARS WORTH OF VALUE OUT OF KIWICON 4 WE WILL GLADLY REFUND YOUR FACE WITH OUR FIST. (Which uh, is to say, doing credit card payment adds to our costs somewhat, so sorry. Its $55 this time.)
