Q: Let's say I have 6 people who want to sign up with me. Do they have to sign up through a roster on yourwaycpr.com first? Or can I just make the roster and then fill it in myself online? Do my students pay me and then I pay you for the card fees?
A: Your students enroll directly with you and pay directly to you. At the end of the day, either you or your student should manually add student information to enrollware.com using option “Add student”.

Please remember that any reprint due to a misspelled card will cost you $15, so you may want to find the best way to prevent misspellings.
