I have attended 2 free shopkeeparty free ZOOM sessions . Attempting to sign up for Vlad Yeliseyev's workshop forThursday, Nov 19th yesterday, I tried to sign in with my email address ( which I used in the prior sessions. I tried to sign in both as a registered user and as a new account. Both were not recognized. I change password and still no luck. However, I did get a registration number after each attempt. One was B6VFT and the other was A1U1M. Moreover, there was no path for making a payment for the workshop so I don't know if if I am actually registered.

Can someone help me navigate this issue?
