The tickets center for Beijing 2008 Olympic Games says the second phase of tickets sales will begin in the late October. But for the people who have not paid for the tickets, which were reserved in the first round of sales, they could not apply for the second-phase tickets temporarily.
Those who were successful in the first round of applications for tickets at the next year's Olympics have received confirmation letter on August 24th. They can make payment through the Bank of China, or through VISA credit cards.
Even though the deadline for the payment has yet set, the tickets center says, once the applicants who got the confirmation letter have not paid the tickets by then, their reservation will be canceled. And they cannot apply for the tickets in the new round of sales until the Bank of China finishes receiving money for the first phase.
