New Administrator Accounts

Each organization is entitled to a maximum of five (5) administrator accounts.

  • One (1) account is designated for the Account Manager.
    • The Account Manager can edit organization details, add or remove account users, manage call details and applications, download reports, and administer the jury.
  • Four (4) accounts are designated for General Administrators.
    • General administrators can manage call details and applications, download reports, create juror accounts, and administer the jury.

To keep your account secure, each account needs to be associated with a specific person in your organization. Logins should not be shared. The account manager for the licensee can add or deactivate general administrator accounts.

Remittance Checks

Revenue collected through CaFÉ is remitted by check or Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) and sent to your organization once per month. The remittance will include all revenue collected for the previous month minus the credit card transaction fees and any additional fees due. Those fees will be deducted from the final payout. A statement of the remittances will be emailed to the email address we have on file for you.

If you are auto-deducting your CaFÉ service fees, you will only receive a remittance statement and check once those fees have been paid off. The first remittance check you receive after your fees are paid off will list the deduction and your final check will list any additional fees assessed after the deadline, such as per applicant fees. 

Your monthly income in CaFÉ is available to view anytime by running an Income Breakdown Report from the Reports tab in your CaFÉ administration dashboard. To learn more about running an Income Breakdown Report, visit our Reports Help Guide.

Applicant Refunds

The organization is the entity responsible for refunding entry fees; however, if you are unable to process a refund, CaFÉ can process refunds on your behalf as long as the refund request meets the following requirements:

  • The refund request must be made by the organization and not the artist.
  • The refund request must be made by an administrator with CaFÉ credentials.
  • The refund request is for the full amount paid.
  • The amount of the refund request is less than the revenue not yet paid out to the organization.
  • The refund request is for payment made by credit card or PayPal.

Visit CaFÉ Refund Requests for more information and to submit a refund request.

Cancellations and Postponements

The CaFÉ team is here to guide you through the steps you need to take if you have to cancel or postpone your event:

  • Notify CaFÉ as soon as you have decided to cancel or postpone your call. Contact us immediately at with the details or submit a Help Ticket.
  • Initiate a refund request. If you elect to refund entry fees for cancellations, let us know so that we can assist with batch refund processing. Let us know as well if you wish to handle refunds on your own (e.g. apply entry fees to member dues instead).
  • Contact your applicants informing them of your decision to cancel or postpone your event and be sure to provide applicants with your contact details so they can follow up with any questions.
