Whether you are registering a professional or a homebrewer entry, it is possible to register several entries by entering the name of the entry, the style in which it is registered and additional information regarding vital statistics (the latter information is not mandatory).

The entry is added to the order by clicking on Add to order, and then you can either continue registering entries or close the order in Place order (it is necessary at this step to consent to the rules of the competition by ticking the box I have read, understood and accepted the rules and regulations of the competition.).

You can also click on Apply promo code, allowing you to use a cupom. If there is no discount, payments are made either by bank transfer or through one of the virtual payment platforms chosen by the organization (PayPal, Mercado Pago, etc.).
