Genius Hack: Collect Money with SignUpGenius Payments
Posted by: Erin Dunn on 10/11/2016 12:00 AM EDT
You’ve organized your team’s soccer snacks, whipped the school’s volunteer schedule into shape and still found time to organize the annual fall work potluck. (Gold star for you!)
Did you know there’s a way to take your events to the next level — all while you’re organizing on SignUpGenius? When you set up SignUpGenius Payments on your account you’ll be able to collect money with our simple PayPal integration directly on your sign ups. It’s great for:
You can get started by creating your sign up — for instance, Group Gift for Coach Taylor — and when you get to Step 4 in the sign up wizard, you turn on the “Collect Money” option in Advanced Settings.
The first time you use Payments, you’ll be prompted to link your PayPal account to your SignUpGenius account and enter a credit/debit card. Once set up, the possibilities are endless! You will see an array of options when you click “Pay $” by your slots.
You can collect one flat amount from everyone (such as a specified registration fee) or give people the option to pay different amounts for different items (ticket pricing that changes by seating placement option, for instance).
PayPal charges an industry-standard processing fee of 2.9 percent plus $0.30 cents a transaction, and SignUpGenius charges a service fee of 2.1 percent plus $0.20 cents a transaction — or 5 percent combined plus 50 cents per transaction.
