We might have this option in the future. But it requires some additional work to set up.

However, if you email registration@kumoricon.org, there is the possibility they can accommodate this sooner (I don't think so, but I don't know the answer for certain). Keep in mind you can also mail in your registration by check or money order, and if you are wanting to register by Dec. 31 (before the price goes up), as long as it's postmarked by that date (not necessarily received), then it's valid for the current price.

K-con sets up booths at mini events too, usually that is where I'd buy my badge.

I understand the frustration towards not being able to use paypal as well. But I just send money orders in then

As far as I know, our current company that does our online transactions does not allow for Paypal.  We'd have to be set up with two different order completion systems to allow paypal, which would really, really complicate registration and error-checking the databases.  I am not saying this is impossible, but the answer to your question as to why we haven't yet is because reg is a ton of work, and that would make it be even more work:)  As was mentioned, we also do events where you can pay cash, you can send in money orders, checks, etc.  Just don't send us cash, we cannot accept cash via mail.  If you are really stuck for a way to pay, contact reg and they will likely work with you to find a way ;)
