I don’t have a credit card, how can I pay the conference/workshop?

If you are interested in attending our hands-on conferences and workshops, but you don’t have a credit card, here are some alternatives:

1. Get a disposable virtual credit card. A virtual credit card can be created in just 5 minutes within your bank website (almost every bank offer this service). Access your personal account in your bank’s website private section with the credentials given to you by your bank. Find the menu item “create virtual card” and follow the instructions. You will be able to create a virtual credit card, charge it with the amount of money you desire, and define the lapse of time the card should be active. You will eventually get the codes of the disposable virtual credit card and therefore be able to purchase the tickets on DoD website.

2. Get a prepaid card of the mastercard circuit. Prepaid cards are easy to use and secure. You can charge them in several different ways. Prepaid cards are usually operating with the mastercard circuit, so you can use them everytime you see the Mastercard logo. Here are just some prepaid cards that operates with mastercard circuit:
