Hi Martijn,

Yes, it is the only payment option. I appreciate that there are effective and commonly used bank transfer systems in some European countries, but our administrative capacity and the booking website meant we had to settle on one method of payment.

We did consider all options and various currency payment options, but we settled on credit card payments as the being most accessible method internationally and the simplest for us to administrate at this scale. 

I hope this doesn't prevent you from attending.

Currently the only payment method for registration as far as I can find is by credit card. Are more payment options planned and/or considered?
