ChessRegister is an event registration system for chess tournaments. It provides organizers with an easy to use web-based system to collect and manage player registrations. Tournament entry fees (if any) are processed via PayPal and deposited directly to the organizer’s PayPal account. ChessRegister has been provided as a free service to the chess community since 2011 by 7th Rank Ventures, Inc.
ChessRegister was designed from the ground up to be fast and easy to use. It takes only minutes to create a new event and even less time for a participant to register for a tournament. Registration data can be updated by organizers as needed and then downloaded into a spreadsheet or directly into your favorite tournament pairing application. Chessregister currently supports direct import into both the SwissSys and WinTD pairing applications.
We use PayPal to accept credit card or PayPal payments and industry-standard SSL encryption to secure the registration process. Payments are accepted directly by PayPal and immediately deposited into the account associated with the organizer’s PayPal account email address. Registrants do not need to have a PayPal account to pay with a credit card.
Current USCF & FIDE Ratings
ChessRegister maintains it’s own database of UCSF & FIDE ratings thus ensuring that current ratings (as of the latest monthly supplement) are always used during registration and when the registration file is exported. This also ensures that registrants are not impacted by slow or unresponsive external (ahem, USCF) systems. Players can check back at any time to see their USCF and FIDE rating in one spot!
