How do I host paid events?

Last updated on August 29, 2022

Our direct integration with Stripe makes it easy to get paid for your online courses, workshops, and events.

 

On the Lite and Professional plans, there is a 5% transaction fee + Stripe's processing fee of 2.9% + 30¢. On the Business plan, this transaction fee goes down to 2% + Stripe's processing fee of 2.9% + 30¢.

 

When creating an event, a host can charge a fixed or sliding scale amount per event. You can also offer a free ticket option. Scroll down to the Access section of the edit event form and select Ticketed.

From there, you can give your ticket a title and then select the type of ticket price you want to offer (e.g. fixed, sliding scale, or free). You can build multiple ticket types and tiers depending on your event needs. A ticket description is optional but useful for your attendees if you’re offering multiple ticket types.

Fixed Pricing

Select the Fixed option from the price dropdown menu if you'd like to set a set entry price for your event.

Sliding Scale Payment

For hosts who want to make their events more financially accessible, you can set up a sliding scale payment. This allows attendees to pay what they can.

Select Sliding Scale, then choose the minimum payment value. You can fill out the maximum payment value or leave it blank.

You are not limited by one payment type or another. You can offer both fixed and sliding scale payment options depending on your needs.

 

Promo Codes

 

You can also build promo codes for discounted access to your ticketed event. Promo codes may be based on a percentage discount or a dollar amount. You can also schedule when they’re available for use.

 
 

Important Notes

  • Refunds are issued through the host's connected Stripe account.
