How to register


How the registration system works

To walk in the Trek for Timor you need to register your email address and come up with a password. That allows you to login to the system any time you want and view what we call your "Dashboard". There is a menu along the top of the screen.

There are two main steps to being fully registered to walk in the Trek for Timor:

  1. We ask you to provide your contact details and information about how far you want to walk. You do this through the Profile menu. You have the option of entering a Display name, which is what your sponsors see when they go to the Trek donate page. If you leave this blank, they will see: LASTNAME, Firstname.
  2. Make your registration payment through the Payment menu. You can pay by Paypal, credit card or direct deposit. Note that Paypal processes the credit card transaction. You don't need to be a member of Paypal to use this service. You will need to enter the amount you are paying. If you are making a direct deposit, just copy all the details which are displayed on the screen and make sure they go into the deposit details. You can find out more about payments here.

The Dashboard

Once you are logged in to the system, your Dashboard will display your Registration status in coloured text. Anything in red indicates what you still need to do. Anything in green indicates what you have completed.

The menu at the top of the Dashboard allows you enter all the information needed for the Virtual Trek.

You can make changes to your profile if this is necessary. Do not make extra payments. If your Paypal transaction fails, do NOT click the Submit button again. Instead, click on the Paypal Donate button a second time. Constact us if you continue to have payment problems by emailing us at regos.trekfortimor2020@gmail.com.

You can also enter the kilometres you walk in the Virtual Trek using the Journey menu. These will update your journey on the map of East Timor. As you pass Check points in East Timor, the map will change and you can click on the map to "visit" these places in East Timor. See the A Virtual Trek? menu item (on the Help menu) for more information.

The only thing you can't do through the dashboard is make donations to sponsor other walkers. See the Fundraising menu item (on the Help menu) for more information about this.
