I am not sure if I can get any other funding for the airfare,
so if it is possible for you to cover at least part of
the airfare that would be very helpful indeed.

Hello Jens,

We are pleased to inform you that, your request has been accepted for a maximum of $400 + stay.[1] Stay is provided on the twin sharing basis for the duration of the conference, ie. check-in on 25th June and check-out on 29th June.

Please go ahead and book your tickets. We will reimburse the same after the conference. Please ensure to retain your boarding passes, as we will need those for reimbursement.

Hello Jens,

Just to remind you, please book your tickets in time and attach them here for later reimbursement purposes. Confirmed itinerary(timings) will help us in planning cab pick-ups from Mumbai to Pune, if required.

Thank you. :)

Thanks, I have booked my ticket already -
the itinerary is same as originally listed in comment:0.

How about the hotel booking?

The hotel booking (and taxi from/to Mumbai airport, if you need one) will be taken care of. You'll only have to pay for the additional days you're staying after the conference, i.e. after 29th.

Thanks! BTW I would prefer to stay at the Cocoon Hotel since I am planning to visit the Pune Office before and after the conference.

That is where we'll be putting you up :)

Hello Jens,

A reminder, please attach your tickets here for later usage. Confirmed itinerary(timings) will help us in planning cab pick-ups from Mumbai to Pune.

Thank you.

Let me email it to you, thanks

I sent you an email, thanks.

My PP should be ready now.

My address is: juhpetersen at gmail dot com

Thanks

Thanks, assigning to Ruth for payout of amount '''USD 561''' to Paypal account '''juhpetersen at gmail dot com'''

There are no receipts attached here.

Paypal says "Sorry, this recipient can’t accept payments right now."

I see thanks - this will be my first received payment.
I asked Paypal for help.

Okay, sorry I am a Paypal newbie... it turns out I have to do one more verification step to receive payments and it could some weeks to get approved so I will ping back here when my account has been upgraded. Thanks!

Still says "Sorry, this recipient can’t accept payments right now."

Thanks for trying again - I think my ID verification is still ongoing.
I didn't realise earlier that I need to upgrade my account to receive payment. Sorry for the extra delay.

I will let you know here when the upgrade is completed.

Ruth, my paypal should finally be able to receive payments now.

Ping! It would be nice if we could close this this year. :)
