In 2003, I was the Treasurer for a breed club. I was also
selling on eBay and getting familiar with online payments. The
original application was developed to handle AKC conformation and
obedience. In 2004, it was expanded to handle AKC Agility
events of up to 4 days. In 2005, an application was developed
to handle USDAA events up to 4 days.
behind these applications has been to be a contribution to dog sport
exhibitors the convenience of online entries at a price
competitive with big AKC superintendents
individual event secretaries the ability to offer online entries
and set the convenience fee
convenience fee proceeds with the secretary &/or clubs hosting the events
Direct to Secretaries
All entry and convenience fees flow directly to the secretary's
PayPal account. I invoice only after the close of entries,
with payment due 15 days net after invoice. This means you
already have your entry fees in hand before the event, and that your
payment to sWaggerz is due during or after the event itself!
secretary needs is a PayPal account, and to add a specific and
unique sWaggerz email address to that account. AT NO TIME is
the PayPal password needed.
Demonstration Entry Available
For those who want to get a sense of the application, a demo is
available. This is based on an event run through sWaggerz for the
Agility Trial Secretary for the 2005 Samoyed National. The
demo differs from a live event in a few ways:
because the trial on which the demo is based is closed, the demo
application is configured to send the submission to sWaggerz's
webmaster, rather than then event's actual Secretary.
in case someone tests all the way through payment, class fees
are 1/100th the actual values from the event, and the online
convenience fee is 1/10th the actual fee for that event.
the demo is configured to send payment to the account of
sWaggerz's webmaster. This enables the ability to refund
mistaken payments directly
open/close of entries
entries 'open' at 6 a.m. and 'close' at 11:30 p.m. daily.
This demonstrates the application's ability to open and close at
the times published in the PL or Test Schedule.
The demo is
