How to cover participant service fees

athleteReg charges a service fee for each registration. Most event directors pass this fee on to participants, but they can choose to cover all or some of the fee. To set this, click "General Event Setup" in the "Event Setup" menu (the first box on the Event Setup screen), select a percentage of the service fee you would like to cover from event fee proceeds.


The service charge depends on the entry fee and consists of a base fee plus a percentage that spans specific price points. The table below shows our service fee structure. If you would like the service fee for a specific entry fee, send us an email to [email protected], and we can give you the exact service fee.
