1. Does that mean one goes to the test center and inform the administrator that one would like to take the test but hasn't registered?
2. Or does one need to inform the test center administrator/ETS about it beforehand?
3. Does one pay by credit/debit card on the spot then?
If you are going to register as a stand by you will need to get to the test center early to fill out payment information. I don't know how you are required to pay though. If you call ETS they won't take your information or anything, so yes, you don't have to register ahead of time.
