Please read the following information with regards to your payment options and our new payment partner, Webtickets, when entering the Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon.
You have always only allowed credit card payments, but I don’t have a credit card? Can I pay with an EFT?
No EFTs are accepted. But the great news is that Webtickets is now the OMTOM’s official payment partner. This means that, instead of paying within the entry system, you will be redirected to Webtickets, where you can select your preferred payment type – which includes paying either by credit card, or by making a cash/debit card payment at your nearest Pick n Pay or Boxer Store.
Note that your in-store payment option will expire after 24 hours, so be sure to finalise your payment timeously, or extend your webtickets voucher within the date deadline.
Can I download an entry form, and make an EFT payment or bank deposit?
Due to an increase in fraud, we will no longer facilitate postal entries with EFT payments / bank deposits. Therefore, download entry forms will not be available. However, thanks to our new payment partner Webtickets, you don’t need a credit card to complete your entry, simply select to pay in-store at any Pick n Pay or Boxer Store with cash or your debit card.
Why did you partner with Webtickets?
Having Webtickets on board extends our payment options and make the entry system more accessible to a wider demographic of users.
The move to an external and more robust payment platform also gives us access to the latest electronic transaction technologies, and ensures that our runners have more convenient payment options available to them.
Entrants are required to have a Webtickets profile in order to facilitate payment, and all prospective participants must either update their existing OR create a new Webtickets profile before 1 November.
Almost half of our OMTOM database already have a Webtickets profile.
I have a Webtickets profile. Must I create a new one for the entry system
There is no need to create a new profile if you already have one. We do suggest, however, that your email address and cellphone number on Webtickets match the contact details on your OMTOM profile.
I don’t have a Webtickets profile? What must I do now?
Creating a Webtickets profile is so easy! Simply visit www.webtickets.co.za, click the “Register” button and follow the instructions.
We suggest that you use the same email address and cellphone number on Webtickets as what is already registered on your OMTOM profile.
Details for the following year will be officially launched in September 2017.
