Would also like to request the option to purchase multiple tickets. An issue with them going thru registration 5 times is that the paypal security model may flag them as a scammer and not allow them to go thru - we've had it happen twice. Then the user has to use a different credit card. I'm not sure how the new on-line payment will work, but looking forward to it.
As far as the second alternative, the number of options that I would have to put in would be too numerous and too confusing (i.e. two different menu choices, member price and non member price, allow for sign ups of one, two, three or four people - so I would have to put in 16 ticket types to accomodate all alternatives.)
Currently, if a registrant calls or emails me with the question, I put in a one-time ticket type for them to register, then disable it after they register, or make them mail their payment.
So just want to weigh in on this option.
