We're Live! Please Confirm Your Spaces
Our new state-of-the-art PateOnline system is live and open for business!
We went live with all of our new features and functions at 6:30 pm CST on December 22, 2020.
You can securely order Vendor Spaces, Space Enhancements (Car Corral tickets or Personal Private Toilets) and Pate Logowear Merchandise online. You can browse available spaces, select the spaces you wish, configure their layout and securely pay for your selections online with a credit card or debit card. It only takes a couple of minutes and is available 24x7x52.
If you still want to work with our Registrar, simply call or write Carolyn Piersol will enter your order into the system on your behalf functioning as your agent. You are not required to use the new system unless you wish.
Even if you are an existing 2021 Pate Vendor and have already purchased your Vendor Spaces for the 2021 pate Swap Meet, you are invited to take a look at the new system and play with its functionality.
Confirm Your Spaces
Also, as a final confirmation that your Vendor Records have been successfully and accurately transferred into our new system, Please confirm your spaces in our database. With both 2020 postponements and the change of Registrars, we would like for you to formally confirm your spaces.
We have built a permanent feature on your "My Account" page. If you are logged in (required), we will read your logged-in identity and query the Space Inventory database of all spaces being held in your name. It is just that easy. If the record of your spaces is correct, please confirm. If there is an error, please lets us know the error you find and we will immediately fix any whatever you find.
The "My Space" page is a permanent part of your "My Account" page so after your initial confirmation, you can check again if you make changes or add spaces. You can access your "My Account" page by clicking on your Username that can be found in the upper-right corner of any page if you are logged in at the time.
See Our New Home Page
When we made the new PateOnline system live, we also changed out our main Home Page to add new pages and links. Enjoy!
See Pate Times Online
As part of going live, we have made the new Pate Times Online directory of all 2021 Pate Vendors live and available to the public. To existing Vendors, we announced Pate Times Online last summer and showed it in our Member Portal since then. As announced at the time, the online version would be made public when the rest of the system went live. Now is the time.
Vendors, you can update your listing (both the Vendor Card and the Vendor Detail Page) now and at any time in the future and as often as you wish. If you are logged in, you will see an "Edit" button on your listing. Simply click on the "Edit" and replace the placeholder text and add your photos. Save your changes and you're done! We recommend you update the text and add pictures ASAP.
Pate Gift Shop
We are also debuting the Pate Gift Shop. Currently, we're offering "collector's items," the t-shirt, cap and coffee mug from the "swap meet that never was." However, after the first of the year, we will be adding lots of new merchandise.
