Can a Landing Page be made to look like our website?

You can load a header graphic to the top of your Landing Page to ensure it emulates the look of your corporate branding. Plus you are able to choose colour schemes and styles for the layout of the page to keep consistency with your other marketing.

We have over 100 Training sessions to promote and am concerned a Landing Page will be too hard for customers to find the event for them?

Grouping your ‘like’ events under Subheads make it easier for people to jump to what is of interest to them fast. Subheads could be the specific type of training course, or perhaps the month of the year – whatever is most logical. MBM’s team can train you how to automatically have your events present under the correct Subhead using Group Tags. Let us work with you to creatively plan your great Landing Page.

Do customers find it easier if I have a Landing Page?

Often yes. Particularly if your run multiple events / functions throughout a year. Customers can bookmark your Landing Page and check it regularly for any new events you have open.

Do booking forms have to require payment?

No – many of our clients run free events for their customers, needing MBM to efficiently manage the registration process only.

Does MBM have any suggested Payment Gateways?

Yes – two in particular are standard. MBM has found many clients have benefited from the ease/speed of set-up of an independent Payment Gateway called STRIPE (, plus PayPal is a standard option active in our platform for anyone to use with a ‘Business’ grade PayPal account.

Does MBM charge additional fees for online payments?

No. MBM simply helps our clients ensure they have a reliable, trustworthy online payment system that maximises the effectiveness of the Online Booking system we offer.

Some of our events are Private … by personal invitation only. Effectively, we need RSVP forms rather than booking forms. Can this be done?

YES – setting up a booking form does not need to be complex and during set-up, you can set the booking form as a “Keep Private” form to ensure the likes of Google cannot find and index it. In this manner, the private link to your “RSVP” form can be direct emailed to your invitation list, rather than published on a website / social media.

Our venue has a maximum number of seats. Can booking forms be capped?

YES. There are in fact many ways of capping a booking form. Not only the number of attendees (or even types of attendees) … but Merchandise can be capped (eg. If you only have so many ‘stick-pins’ available to sell); or only so many available spots in a Session etc.

How to do Test Registrations & Payments

You can use several methods to make test Registrations & Payments as outlined below.
To test new credit card merchant accounts or new Paypal credit card transactions it is recommended to use options 3 or 5.

  1. Make a booking using Add Registration (Manage Tab) and don’t select the Credit Card  radio button (as for sponsors). 
  2. Enter a valid cc number but use an invalid exp date and ccv number. 
  3. Set up a temporary reg type for an amount of say $0.50. This way you can do a real payment transaction incurring just a minimal charge. This method is recommended when you first set up your merchant account. By making a real payment you can check to see the payment appears  in your merchant account or payment gateway and that the payment appears on your credit card statement (plus you can see how it would appear on your Attendee’s credit card statement. 
  4. Use  test Visa credit card number 4111111111111111  to test registrations. This is a nearly universally recognized test number for a Visa card and will obviously NEVER result in an actual transaction being completed.  Most gateways support this such (for example including  IIRC, Camtech, St.Goerge  and BNZ ). Please note that the cents amount of the transaction may affect the returned response (for example  St.George and BNZ). That is $25.00  would test as approved whereas $25.25 would return an error code of 25 from the processing payment gateway resulting in a declined transaction. This is by design to be able to test various failures. Invoices will be marked as preview/test and will be recorded against the project as a Test mode registration (Project Status: Test Mode).
  5. Add a temporary Discount Code in Setup step 6.  Set the Discount Code to a percentage or fixed amount that would allow you to pay a minimum (eg 50c). This method is also recommended when you first set up your merchant account.This method is a ideal if your event is live as only you will know the code to enter. Once tested you could then delete the discount code.
