How can I get confirmation of my registration

Please email perfecttiminginfo@gmail.com with your first name, last name, and phone number. We will send you a registration confirmation.

I registered twice and/or was charged twice, what should I do?

If you received two confirmations with two different confirmation numbers, then you have submitted two separate registrations, please email perfecttiminginfo@gmail.com. Otherwise, determine if the extra charge (or charges) on your online credit card statement is a pending charge. If so, your bank will cancel it in a few days. A pending charge appears, most likely, because you submitted incomplete or inaccurate information when submitting payment.

A final charge will be completed only for successful registrations for which you received a confirmation code.
