Features

Create your own event:

You have complete control, because you set it up yourself. Make changes at any time. We thought of everything so you can put on the best event possible. Our event management software is powerful and easy to use.

Online registration allows patrons to fill in their own information. Think of all the time you'll save by not having to open envelopes, manually enter patron information, process checks, etc. That process is very time consumimg, prone to human error, and inflexible.

Training is minimal if any. Using our system means you can reduce staff and volunteers.

Also, you don't have to open your PayPal/merchant account reports and manually transfer the data to another record keeping systems, such as an Excel spreadsheet. Star Event Systems is a complete data management system that tracks everything your patrons purchase in their shopping cart. (PayPal PayPro or another merchant account + Authorize.net required to enable this functionality.) It stores patron info such as name and BIB number, passes purchased, competitions purchased in a relational database that can be queried for any information via our reporting engine (see Reporting below).

Sell products:

We cover all your selling needs, including DVDs and shirts.

Product listings are grouped logically into 4 categories:

  1. Passes
  2. Competitions
  3. Workshops
  4. Merchandise

Create purchase constraints, i.e. patrons can only sign up for J&J or midnight buffet if they already have weekend pass in their shopping cart. The system also allows them to enter their Strictly partner even if that partner hasn't signed up for a World Dance Registry account yet. We worked hard to give you several powerful data validation features like this to prevent errors, save you time, and let you sleep at night.

You can even use our software together with your merchant account to accept credit card / debit card payments on-site at your event easily and seemlessly during checkout. We can even provide laptops (see equipment below) for your on-site registration line to allow patrons to self-register at your event and speed up the registration line. Smaller lines = happier patrons.

2 merchant account options:

  1. Create a new, or upgrade your existing PayPal business account to Paypal PayPro for $30/month (PayPro is a merchant account and payment gateway in one)
  2. Use your existing bank merchant account and for another $15, get Authorize.net for a online payment gateway
