Accept online payments with PayPal Express Checkout Smart Payment Buttons (with Venmo)

Payments through PayPal Express Checkout Smart Payment Buttons are now available for Event Espresso. Event organizers in many countries all over the world can receive online payments for their event registrations using PayPal. In addition to popular payment options like credit cards and PayPal funds, an attendee can now pay for their event registrations using PayPal Credit and even Venmo (where available).

Receive payments for event registrations through Venmo

Venmo is now a service provided by PayPal. By using the PayPal Express Checkout Smart Payment Buttons payment gateway, an attendee will be able to pay for their event registrations using Venmo.

With PayPal Express Checkout that is included with Event Espresso, an attendee is temporarily taken to a secure page on PayPal.com where they can pay with a credit card, debit card, or PayPal funds. With the new Smart Payment Buttons, an attendee or a registrant won’t leave your website. Instead, they’ll see a secure modal window appear over your website where they can pay and see a confirmation of their payment and registration right away. On mobile devices, attendees will pay on a page and then see their registration confirmation.



PayPal Express Checkout Smart Payment Buttons has several benefits over the existing PayPal Express Checkout payment gateway:

– Smart Payment Buttons will dynamically show extra payment options that are available like PayPal Credit and Venmo offering your attendees’ even more options to pay for their event registrations
– An attendee can now make an online payment without leaving your website even if they don’t have a PayPal account



Here is a comparison of the payment options available between the platforms:

PayPal Express Checkout
(uses the NVP/SOAP API from PayPal)

✓ Credit cards
✓ Debit cards
✓ PayPal funds

PayPal Express Checkout Smart Payment Buttons
(uses the new REST API from PayPal)✓ Credit cards
✓ Debit cards
✓ PayPal funds
Venmo
PayPal Credit

This means that your registrants and attendees will have more choices to pay and they’ll be able to pay even faster as compared to the existing PayPal Express Checkout. And PayPal handles this behind the scenes for you by using “your specific configuration and a buyer’s location and cookies.”

Accept online payments with Authorize.net Accept

Authorize.net has announced that they are closing down their SIM service. Once the closure happens, then you won’t be able to accept online payments through Authorize.net SIM. Authorize.net has recommended their Accept product as a replacement for their SIM product and we’ve integrated with it with Event Espresso 4 by using their Hosted option through an iframe. With Authorize.net Accept, event organizers in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, and Australia will be able to accept online payments for their registrations.

Authorize.net Accept is a replacement for Authorize.net SIM

As a refresher, Authorize.net SIM is an offsite payment service. This means that a registrant or attendee is temporarily taken to a secure page on Authorize.net to make their payment and then they are returned to your website to view a confirmation of their registration.

With Authorize.net Accept, a guest will pay on your website through an iframe. This has several benefits:

  • An attendee can now make a payment without leaving your website
  • The card information is sent directly to Authorize.net for secure processing and never touches your website

 


 

Here is a comparison of the registration flows between SIM and Accept (uses the Hosted option):

Authorize.net SIM

1) A guest starts their registration from the event page by making a selection
2) They enter their registration information
3) They are sent to a page on Authorize.net to pay
4) The guest is returned to your website to view their confirmation

Authorize.net Accept Hosted

1) A guest starts their registration from the event page by making a selection
2) They enter their registration information
3) They pay and see their confirmation on your website

There are less steps needed to register and pay which means a faster registration experience for your attendees and registrants.

Accept payments with PayPal Express, Embed the Events Calendar, and More

We’ve been working hard on Event Espresso to make it work even better for your events. In this post, we’ll cover a handful of the improvements that have been introduced to Event Espresso over the past few months.

PayPal Express is now recommended over PayPal Standard

PayPal Express replaces PayPal Standard in Event Espresso 4. PayPal Express offers a similar registration experience for your guests and is more reliable than PayPal Standard as it does not use the Instant Payment Notification (IPN).

This means that payments are processed on a secure PayPal.com page, and then a guest is returned to your website to view a confirmation of their registration. You no longer need to worry about a possible delay that could happen with the IPN as payments are updated immediately after a payment is completed.

And you can continue to offer guest checkout with PayPal which means that your registrants/attendees can pay for their registrations without needing a PayPal.com account.

PayPal Express uses a different set of credentials than PayPal Standard and here is a step by step guide on switching from PayPal Standard to PayPal Express. (more…)
