Dealing with one check returned for insufficient funds is one thing. Chasing down registrants with multiple returned checks (or bogus money orders) is entirely another thing and a drain on the resources (in both time and additional bank fees) that we do not wish to put up with. The online registration system deals with insufficient funds by simply rejecting the transaction, at no additional cost to us or the registrant. Besides, most banks (in the U.S.) have debit cards associated with their accounts which can be used as a credit card for online transactions; so if you can write a check, you can use your debit card.
