Conal payments


Conal currently uses two payment platforms to accept additional promotion payments: MyCommerce and Paypal. Both of these platforms are internationally recognized, and use secure servers.

The MyCommerce platform until recently was known as SWReg; so regular users of this platform may notice some changes in the ordering process and invoices.

The changeover process went smoothly, but at one point there was an issue affecting certain organizers when ordering the Featured Event Service; should you have been affected by this, please email us for help placing your order.

Conal is continually striving to make the payment process as user friendly as possibly. Should you have any questions about payments, or have difficulties in ordering or paying for an promotion, please email us at and we will assist you promptly.
