Lindy Hop levels
You can pay online with your credit card. All payments are processed securely by PayPal. You don't need a PayPal account to pay. You can choose to pay directly by entering you credit card info, like in any online shop. (Note: the option of paying without a PayPal account is available in Denmark, but it might not be available in your country.) Read more here.
Once you have made a registration to the event, you will get a booking confirmation. This booking confirmation does however not mean your registration is accepted. Your registration is only accepted once you have payed, at which point you have secured your spot. Thus, your proof of purchase is your PayPal receipt, which you receive from PayPal after you have payed.
When you check in, we will have your name in the door, but to be on the safe side, you can bring your PayPal receipt as your proof of purchase (either printed or in electronic version).
We do not offer refunds for purchased passes, no matter the circumstances. However, your pass is fully transferable, so you can give or sell it to another person (read more below). There is also no refunds of not used passes after the event, and they cannot be transferred to future events.
If you cannot attend the event yourself, you can transfer your pass to someone else, under these conditions:
Note: If you have a Full Pass or a Party Pass, you can only transfer the whole pass. You cannot give away parts of it to someone else. Once you have checked in to the event, your pass is not transferable anymore.
