HOW TO BUY A REGULAR COURSE TICKET
1.Go to MY ACCOUNT on the main menu and log in. Do not buy from an account with a fake email address.
2. KNOW EXACTLY WHAT YOU WANT TO BUY and for whom.
Online sales programs limit how long they will wait for you mid-sale to make up your mind or find your wallet.
HAVE YOUR CREDIT CARD ready. GTLLI uses STRIPE (at no cost to you) to manage every transaction.
3.EMPTY YOUR CART before you begin to buy.
Click on the cart icon on the main menu above to look into your shopping cart.
If it is not empty, empty it now by clicking on the X beside any item you wish to cancel.
4. RETURN TO SHOP. This will take you back to the main menu to the PURCHASE page.
5. CHOOSE ONE ITEM AT A TIME by clicking on the one you want to buy.
At any time, if you become confused about where to go next, click on your cart icon to return there and continue on.
6. BUYING FOR YOURSELF AND/OR A COMPANION?
Check off who the ticket is for – one of you or both of you.
a) Buying for yourself?
When you choose ‘yourself’, the system knows your name and will put it on your ticket.
The system will refuse to take ‘yourself’ if you already have a ticket for the course.
b) Buying for a companion?
If you choose ‘companion’, you must tell the system who that is. Their ticket will be personalized with their name.
The companion ticket can only be bought for others who have an account, are eligible at that time, and don’t already have that ticket.
When sales are open to the public, anyone may buy for anyone with an account.
Your companion must be named for each course. Enter your companion’s last name and SEARCH. The name must match what is on your companion’s GTLLI account. eg. is it Bob or Robert? Is it McLean or MacLean? Try just the last name. Try the first name. When the correct name appears, choose your companion by first ADD ing the companion’s name and then ADD again to the cart.
If the search is not successful, your companion may not be eligible to get a ticket at that time.
If you believe that is an error, email email@example.com or leave a message at 705 300-3251.
7. CONTINUE SHOPPING after each item.
8. BEFORE you PROCEED TO CHECKOUT, verify that the items in your cart are correct. You can delete any item by clicking on the X.

If you are using someone else’s credit card DO NOT CHANGE THE BILLING INFORMATION. It should match your GTLLI account – not the person whose card you are using.
Continue through PROCEED TO CHECKOUT.
