With recent changes to BMX Australia’s online entry system, particularly the introduction of multiple event memberships, questions have been raised regarding various fees and how they are calculated.

In order to answer these, we spoke with BMXA’s online entry system and database supplier OSM to find out a little more information about the process.

From OSM:

The Family Registration process is a more convenient way for families to register multiple members at the same time, as there is the ability to process each member in the one transaction, rather than having to sign in and out between profiles.

Each member and event entry is charged the same fee as if only the one entry was made. There are no discounts to members who process via the Family Membership Registration system as opposed to single entries.

Each entry and membership is charged the entry fee, plus a Service Fee. Once the members and events have been added and completed, the member selects the ‘continue’ option and is taken to the payment page. On the payment page, the total will be shown and a processing fee is calculated based on the total.

As an example:

                Jamie enters the National Championships Round 1 for $50.00

                Jamie enters the National Championships Round 2 for $50.00

                Tamika enters the National Championships Round 2 for $50.00

                Jamie will be charged a Service fee for Round 1 of $1.05

                Jamie will be charged a Service fee for Round 2 of $1.05

                Tamika will be charged a Service fee for Round 2 of $1.05

                Total of 3 Event Entries equals $150

                Total of 3 Service Fees equals $3.15

The transaction will have a processing fee of $4.43 (based on 2.95% of the total without service fee)

                TOTAL = $157.58”
