Payment Info

At the moment, payment to participate in a†Brussels Matters discussion†is by credit card only. This is because payment by credit card is the only way we can confirm your participation in the discussion immediately and if participating by teleconference, send you the dial-in details and†the link to the speaker's presentation on time.†
We accept the following credit cards: American Express | Visa | Mastercard


We will send you a receipt once we have received your credit card payment. The receipt†will show that you have already paid to participate in the discussion. You can then use the receipt to obtain a reimbursement from your law firm / employer organisation.
We appreciate that many people may have concerns about using credit cards to make purchases on-line. This is why all our credit card payments via our website (Step 5/5 of the registration process) use Irelandís premier payment services processor, Realex Payments (, to ensure that you can use your personal or corporate credit card with the maximum of security.†
Realex Payments were the first Irish payments services processor to achieve Level 1 Service Provider status against the international Payment Cards Industry (PCI) Data Security Standards (DSS). The Level 1 Service Provider/Merchant category is the highest level in PCI DSS.

A copy of Realex Payments' current PCI DSS Certificate of Compliance can be found here. Brussels Matters Ltd. has also been validated as compliant with PCI DSS standards by Trustwave Inc. as performed the required procedures to validate compliance with the PCI DSS standard.

For further information about Realex Payments implementation of the PCI standards, please follow this link.

Staff at Brussels Matters have no access to the personal credit card information that you will fill into the secure Realex Payments credit-card payment processing page (Step 5/5). †This page is hosted on the Realex Payments'†server, not the Brussels Matters server.

Changes to Brussels Matters receipts

Occasionally, we are asked to change a receipt for payment to participate in a discussion after Brussels Matters has issued the receipt based on the data†provided at the time of registration.

Please check all the information provided at Step 3/5 of the registration process as this information†forms the basis for the receipts issued by Brussels Matters.

Requests to change receipts once they have been issued by Brussels Matters will incur an administration charge, currently 50% of the value of the transaction.
