Who is eFeis.com?

eFeis.com is a two person team (with arguably many personalities).  The lead designer, developer, technical support, CEO, COO, and Financial department is Andrew Bryan (admin@efeismail.com).  The person that provides you the prompt customer service is my wonderful wife Thuy.  

There have been several other people who are not associated in any way with the website but have been a terrific resource for the development of this site.  The most notable has been Paraic Sweeney of Memphis Feis.  I value his opinion and regard him as an Advisor.  

eFeis.com is based in Mississauga, Ontario. Our self-managed servers are located in a secure facility in downtown Toronto.

Why should I use this service?

There are several reasons why this site you should use this site.  

As a registrant, you have a one stop place to select your competitions for Feis entry with immediate payment and entry confirmation.  There is no need to mail a check, and have your entries postmarked by a certain day.  You are able to enter your competitions up to the advertised closing date.  As well, you entries will be without data entry errors since all of your information is entered by you and is downloaded directly into the database of the competition organizer.

As a Feis Organizer, you will reduce the data entry burden of your volunteers, receive guaranteed payments, and be able to advertise your syllabus to the world. 

Frankly, the data-entry task for the Feis is the most thankless job.  The work is difficult and mistakes may occur causing Feis-day confusions.  Using the website in conjunction with Competition Manager streamlines the process. 

It is a reality that each year a competition will receive payments via checks that are NSF.  Often Feis rely on a tight budget where the bank fees associated with the checks create additional expenses.  Since no entry in complete until a payment has been made this problem will not exist.

Finally, since the internet and Irish Dancing community is global, your syllabus reaches a wider variety of people.  Often these people travel and are looking for a new Feis.

Why must I pay with PayPal?

PayPal provides financial tools that are secure, reliable and are low in service costs to the feis.  Other services take higher commissions than PayPal, have steep monthly fees and setup fees that cannot be absorbed without raising your entry fees.

Providing secure financial transactions is the specialty of Paypal and there are very few providers that can match them.  This may sometimes feel like an inconvenience but we feel better knowing that eFeis.com is not going to be the website that compromises your financial information.

Is my payment Secure?

Yes.  PayPal provides secure transactions and the backbone of their business.  Please see PayPal for more information with respect to security (www.PayPal.com).

eFeis.com has no knowledge of your payment information with the exception of the knowledge of a successful or failed payment.  Since there is no knowledge, there is no sensitive information that is retained, there is no information to secure.

Why do I log in?

When you create a user account, you are defining your family and competitor information.  This information is used for competition entry.  Once it is done, you will not have to do it again.

By logging in, you are enabling the website to personalize your eFeis.com experience and to show you the information that matters to you and only you.

top

Am I registered in the Feis?

When you register and pay for a Feis, the eFeis.com database will be updated to reflect these entries.  All competitions that you are registered in will be shown in the 'My Family Feis Zone' section of the website. 

If you feel that you should be entered in a Feis but the website does not reflect this, please log into your PayPal account to ensure the transaction was successful (www.PayPal.com).  If the payment is not shown, then the payment did not occur and the entries were not completed.

Please contact eFeis.com if you continue to have problems.
