Back to How to Use Top
An entry fee may be charged for entry into tournaments.
There are two ways for participants to pay the entry fee.
## Advance Payment
Advance payments are made at the time the participant enters the tournament.
To allow advance payments, the tournament organizer will need to link to Stripe, a payment service.
Only the leader of the organization can link a Stripe, but after the link is established, members other than the leader will be able to set up advance payment.

## Same-Day Payment
Same-day payment is available for those who want to use a payment method other than advance payment through Stripe. For example, you can arrange for payment in cash on the day of the event at an offline tournament.
