Booking for events

Step 1. Log in to website - with your user name and password (see top right of homepage)

Step 2. Click on the event - select the number of seats you desire. Note if booking an individual or group the cost of each person will depend if they are a member or non-member. If booking a table there is a set overall table price not an individual guest price. There are five (5) booking options -

  1. Register myself
  2. Register another person only
  3. Register myself and a group of other people (will ask how many other people in addition to you)
  4. Register a group of other people only (will ask how many other people)
  5. Register a table (you can only book one table at a time)

Note: when booking an individual, group or table you will be required to enter their first name, last name and email address. The system tries to identify if they are new or existing contacts on our database, and if are a member or non-member. If new to our database, you can select if wish for them to receive marketing emails from RPC or not.

If booking a table, make sure you enter at least one name on each table - you can log back in to update / change your guests anytime up to the booking deadline for that event. If booking a group (less than a table) you cannot change the guest details later on and need to contact the Executive Officer at admin@ruralpressclub.com.au to update.

Step 3. Complete your booking details - including your guests and any special dietary or other requirements. You can also purchase Club ties, scarves and pins at the same time. You can choose to pick up your merchandise at next RPC event for free or items can be posted at a cost of $10 (within Australia).

Step 4. Proceed to shopping cart - there are two (2) payment options - you can pay online using your Visa or Mastercard via the SecurePay Gateway or pay by Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT). If paying by EFT you will receive an invoice with bank payment details - please make sure you put the RPC invoice number into the payment description line to ensure your payment is easily tracked.

Step 5. Invoice - if paid by credit card you will automatically receive a receipt of payment. If paying by EFT, you will only receive the receipt of payment once it has been confirmed that payment received in the RPC bank account. Please note the invoice is not a tax invoice - the Rural Press Club is a not for profit organisation and is not registered for GST.

Step 6. Check your bookings - at anytime you can check your bookings by logging onto website and go to My Profile > My Events section. If booking a table, make sure you enter at least one name on each table - you can log back in to update / change your guests anytime up to the booking deadline for that event. If booking a group (less than a table) you cannot change the guest details later on and need to contact the Executive Officer at admin@ruralpressclub.com.au to update.

Note: If you use an approved credit card including Visa and MasterCard there are the usual transaction related processing fees valued at 1.4% which will be passed on. We do not accept Diners or Amex, but you can pay by electronic funds transfer (EFT). If paying by EFT (direct deposit) please make sure you put invoice number in description line so can be easily tracked.

Updating guest details on your table booking

Note - a user can only update a table booking. If a group or individual booking you will need to contact the Executive Officer.

Step 1. Log into the website via top right of home page as the table manager (person who booked the table)

Step 2. Click on your name in same log in spot and scroll down to see My Events (under your My Profile)

Step 3. Go to your event booking (if you have booked two tables there will be two separate bookings)

Step 4. Add guest names to your table – remember add first name, last name and email address.

Please note: If your guest is a new contact on our database it will ask for more details but again you only need to add name and email to proceed. There is a checkbox at the bottom you can choose to tick or not if you think your guest would like to receive emails from RPC directly. Again this is optional - if unchecked they won't receive emails.

Step 5. Save and close event booking. Remember you can log back in at anytime up until the event registration deadline to update or add new names to your table as you wish.

If still have any queries about booking for an event please contact our RPC Executive Officer on admin@ruralpressclub.com.au
