Go to the WCA website and register for the competition there. If there is no link to pay on the WCA page then look for a link to a different website for that comp (this will be on the WCA page as website) and pay there.

I don't know how it works in other countries, but with most UK competitions you pay in cash when you arrive.
In a lot of the high-density US areas, you have to pay online before your registration spot is reserved, and there's often no at-door registration/payment option. If you can sign up/pay at the door, sometimes there's a different registration fee with a limited pool of events to choose from.

in the past, I have been nice and let competitors with no paypal pay at the door

Yeah, for competitions I organise, I usually include: "If you do not wish to pay online, please use our contact form, and our organisation team will arrange an alternative form of payment."

To the OP: Check to see if there is any possibility of your registration fees being waived for travelling from outside the country. I've done it before, and have heard it done in the past.
