Frequently Asked Questions

Ticket Pricing, Discounts & Payment

• Do you offer discounts for non-profit organizations or government agencies?

Unfortunately, we can't offer any discounted tickets for non-profits or government. We continue to keep ticket prices as low as possible so that organizations with price sensitivity can afford tickets. We encourage everyone to buy tickets early and take advantage of our early bird pricing. 

• Do you offer discounts or free tickets for volunteers?

DrupalCon is a big event and would not be possible without the help of our many amazing volunteers. However, we're not able to offer any discounts or free tickets for volunteers. All DrupalCon volunteers will receive a special volunteer t-shirt. If you have a few hours to spare, please indicate on your online registration form that you are interested in volunteering. Your help is much appreciated! 

• Do I qualify for the discounted student ticket?

If you are enrolled in a full-time or part-time program and have a valid student ID (for current term/year), you qualify for the discounted student rate. Valid student ID must be presented when picking up name badges onsite.

• What forms of payment do you accept?

We accept credit cards (VISA, MasterCard, American Express, Discover), Paypal and ACH/wire transfer. You will find payment instructions and bank information in your invoice, if you choose to pay via ACH/wire transfer. Full payment must be received no later than two weeks prior to the event. Please DO NOT send checks or cash. Due to international banking authorization and fees, we are unable to accept physical checks as payment.

VAT (Value Added Tax)

The Drupal Association is not a tax advisor and does not provide tax or legal advice. All decisions regarding the tax implications of your purchase should be made in consultation with an independent tax advisor. The material below is not intended to replace the advice of a qualified tax advisor, attorney, accountant, or other relevant advisor.

• My organization is VAT registered in Europe. Can VAT be taken off my invoice?

No, unfortunately not. While the Drupal Association, as the event organizer, is based in the United States, VAT is calculated based on the location of where the service or product is provided or purchased (in this instance in Ireland). Unfortunately, there is no way for us to verify tax exemption at the point of sale. Therefore, a 23% VAT applies to all DrupalCon Dublin ticket purchases. However, you may apply for a tax refund with your local tax agency after you purchase your tickets. Please consult with your own tax advisor or attorney with regard to your tax situation. The Drupal Association's VAT identification number will be on the invoice/receipt you receive once you complete your ticket order. If you are planning on filing for a VAT refund, please make sure to enter your organization's VAT identification number along with your billing information so that it will be printed on your invoice/receipt.

How to buy tickets
