Collect Payments and Manage Your Events Online - For Free
Create a Signup Form
A Signup Form is a web page that lets your Payers sign up and pay for your events. You can specify all the important details of your event, including how much it costs and the deadline for signing up. You can then share this web page with your Payers so they can sign up.
- You provide the title, date, price (unless it's a free event), and description.
- You can have multiple groups within a signup, each with different prices. For instance, you can have one group for parents and another group for children.
- You can add a custom question, like "do you have any food allergies?"
- You get a URL that you can post on your web site, social media page or send to your prospective attendees.
Specify Payment Methods
Payment methods are how your Payers are going to pay you. You decide what payment methods you'll accept. This includes online and offline payment methods.
- Example Payment Methods:
- Online credit card: PayPal, Square, Stripe, etc.
- Online peer-to-peer transfer: Google Wallet, Venmo, Zelle, etc.
- In-person cash or check.
- In-person credit card payments: using a card reader or POS from a company like PayPal or Square.
- Account Credit (e.g., money earned from fundraising activities or reimbursing parents for expenses such as buying groceries).
- Custom: you provide the instructions for the user (e.g., bring a donation for the food shelf and you get in for free).
- You decide whether to absorb the PayPal, Square or Stripe processing fees, or you can pass those fees along to the Payer.
Participants Register and Pay
- The Participants see all of the event details that you've provided. If you want, they can also see the list of people who have signed up so far.
- The Participant provides their name, email address, what group they're signing up for, and an optional comment.
- The Participant can see the available payment methods and then choose one of those.
- You can easily see who's signed up for each event, what group they're in, and their responses to your custom questions.
- You can easily remove participants, for instance if they haven't paid, you can remove them from the signup.
- You can easily add new participants, for instance if they don't want to sign themselves up online.
Manage Amounts Due
- You can easily see how much each of your Payers owe.
- You can keep track of payments you've received.
- You can issue Credits. A Credit is money that a Payer can use to pay for a Signup. Example uses for Credits:
- Reimbursing a Payer for their expenses such as buying groceries for the event.
- Tracking money earned at fundraisers, such as distributing the funds earned at a car wash.
- Issuing a refund, for example if the Payer paid but did not attend the Signup.
- Pre-paying for events, for instance, at the start of the year, Payers can put money in their account to be used throughout the year.
- Charging other amounts due, which is money that a Payer owes in addition to what they've signed up for. An Other Amount Due can be assessed to all Payers (e.g., annual dues) or to a specific Payer (e.g., the cost to repair a broken window). An Other Amount Due can also be used as a starting balance or to manage installment payments.
- Produce audit reports showing how much money you've collected, who you've collected it from, and which events you collected it for.
- Track other expenses and income.
- Balance your checking account by tracking all income and expenses and when they were deposited.
