Why use ePly Event Registration?
We often get asked what makes ePly different from other online registration providers, so we’ve made a list of ePly’s features and benefits that will help make your event a success.
Free registration form branding
With the ePly system you aren’t tied to a specific template and have unlimited flexibility in how you build your form. You can add any combination of fields and change all of the colours, fonts and styles to make the form match your website or event.
To get you started we will brand your form for free. Just ask and one of our experts will pull images, colors, fonts and other styles from your website or marketing material and add them to your form. See examples of well branded registration forms.
Expert online registration advice
We’ve built thousands of registration forms and know that small details have a big effect on how many people register for your event. We’ll discuss your requirements with you and:
Help you to choose the best field types, labels and values for your situation
It’s easy to add fields to your form, but there are some big differences between radio buttons, drop down lists and check boxes. With some careful thought, your registration data will give you the kind of reporting you need to make critical decisions about your event.
Help you minimize the time it takes to build a form and manage the collected registration data
There’s more than one way to set up an online registration form. For example, if you have a series of events should you build one form for each event or should you list all events on one form? There are pros and cons to each option and spending a few minutes working though the options before starting can save you hours of time later.
Review your form and point out any issues that may cause a registrant to become confused or abandon your form
Even if you are an expert if never hurts to have someone else review your work. Just ask, and one of our experts will review your form and let you know if they spot anything that might impact your event.
You get the direct extensions and email addresses of our support staff. This means that if you need help, you will be talking to someone who is familiar with your registration form and event.
If your contact doesn’t have the answer right away, they will find it and get back to you. We won’t ask you to spend your time submitting a ticket or transfer you to someone else forcing you need to re-explain your issue.
Easy-to-use, one-page forms
ePly offers a unique registration form style that makes online registration easy. Our registration forms are a single, easy-to-use page so that registrants can scroll up and down to see what they need to complete and can easily review their data.
We’ve found that it makes a huge difference to completion rates, and eliminates the confusion people often experience with multiple screen registrations. The end result? More registrations for you.
See this test on one page versus multi-page forms and the completion rates.
Simple per-registration billing means that you only pay when someone registers. View pricing details.
In some cases, we will consider a simple monthly price or a flat rate per event to use the system if you have a high volume of registrations or if your organization needs an exact amount for budgeting.
Documented response times
Our clients are serious about their business, and we are too. That’s why we have documented our response times for everything, from setting up your form to responding to a support email.

Since 2002 we have been writing articles, producing checklists and developing tools that our clients can use to put on great events and impress their clients. See online event registration blog
Full access to all system features
Spend your time planning the event, not coming up with a work-around because a service or feature isn’t included in your package. We don’t have basic and pro levels, charge for extra users, or limit your use of the system based on the size of your event.
No long-term contracts
That’s right: we want our service and technology to keep you coming back, not a contractual obligation. We know that the best way to win your future business is to provide you with a great registration system and exceptional service, every time. That’s why we have tons of repeat business and customer referrals.
Free “save the date” form – If you aren’t quite ready to launch your registration form and want to capture interest in your event, use a Save-the-Date form to collect contact information from interested registrants and then follow up with them when registration opens. ePly will not charge for any registrations made on a Save-the-Date form.
Free follow up survey – After your event, build a survey form to collect feedback from attendees. ePly will not charge for any registrations made on your post-event survey form.
