Unfortunately the event only offers the possibility of paying by credit card as we use Stripe to handle the payments and it is directly linked to our ticketing system (Tito). Handling manual offers, invoicing, payment confirmation and generating tickets takes up large amounts of time and we do not have the resources to do this due to the scale of the event.

Our ticketing system issues proper invoices and you can edit all the detail, even after you have bought the ticket through a link in the confirmation email.

Yes! You received emails for your original purchase that contain links that allow you to assign tickets to any person of your choosing.
