Updated information regarding credit card payments: If you attempt to register for IDW using a credit card and your transaction is not approved, it is likely that you are using a card that is not enrolled in 3D Security, which requires processing through sending a onetime pin. In the case of this occurring to you, the local organizers advise that you follow up with your card/issuer for corroboration of this possibility. For this payment gateway in use, it is a standard security feature. If this is the case and no card alternatives exist supporting this security feature, a bank transfer may be the best option (details given in the payment option step of the registration process).
