Hello Josephine,

If you proceed with direct PayPal payment you may be asked to pay a small fee, but if you proceed with the payment by credit card with PayPal as processor, you will not need to pay the fee. For more information about making payments via PayPal, please contact PayPal support at https://www.paypal.com/us/webapps/helpcenter/helphub/home/

Hope this helps.

thank you, at the end of the process, it said that there was no payment. My time is 18.00 but I did not receive confirmation email. Seems it should be taking place right now. These times confuse me

Hello Josephine,

I am sorry for the belated reply but from your profile wallet I see your payment has been processed accordingly and a link to join the session has been emailed to you.
Also, I have sent it to you directly.

Please let me know if you need anything else in the meantime. The webinar will be recorded and therefore, even if you do not attend the online session, you will still have unlimited access to the video recording within one working week after the session. Hope this helps.

My bests,
Helen
