Tournament Fee Payment

Starting in 2018, an endorsement fee of $1 per player, per event will now be required for events in North America, to be endorsed by the IFPA and award WPPR points.


How the endorsement fee will work
  •  Endorsement fees are required for each and every event submitted to the IFPA that wishes to receive WPPR points.
  •  The fee is $1 per player per event for endorsement. (For example, 35 participants in an event would mean a $35 endorsement fee)
  •  TDs are responsible for submitting payment to IFPA after results are approved. WPPR points will not be posted until payment has been received by the IFPA. Tournament directors will be able to make deposits into their account via check, money order and Stripe. We will be maintaining a balance for every tournament director under their email address. Funds will be applied to that account when a result is approved by the IFPA. Please use the same email address referenced in the payment details as is used to submit results on the IFPA website so we can put these funds in the appropriate account.
  •  Fees will only be paid based on when results are submitted. For example, a 20 player event that meets monthly is welcome to submit results monthly, and pay $240 for the year. Each monthly event will be awarded WPPR points separately. Organizers are also welcome to pool together individual events into a league, keep their own internal standings for that period of time, and then submit those results annually instead. This would result in an endorsement fee of $20 for the year, however WPPR points would only be awarded one time per year based on that single submission. We leave that flexibility up to the organizers and players within each individual community.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask.
