Payment Methods Pro

Enable a different payment gateway like PayPal or Stripe to different events on your WordPress website so you can receive payments to various merchant accounts.

Event organizers use Event Espresso to accept event registrations for classes, workshops, seminars, courses, and more. With the Payment Methods Pro add-on, you can enable different merchant accounts on your website and connect them to select events.

Here are a few ways that our event organizers use the Payment Methods Pro extension for their events:

– PayPal payments are used for most events, and there are a couple of events where a different merchant account with PayPal should be connected
– A creative class business has several instructors for their classes, and each instructor has connected their own merchant account for receiving online payments
– A nonprofit organization is accepting funds from event registrations through Stripe, and for one fundraising event, they want to use PayPal, so another organization receives the funds directly


Why Payment Methods Pro?


Why sell event registrations and tickets with a third party?

Sure, you can do that but is it worth the 4-6.5% service/commission fee for every ticket or registration sold?

Think about event organizers who take a loss on paying these fees.

Other event organizers may be doing that, but things can be different for you. You can gladly say “no thanks” to flushing hundreds or even thousands down the drain in service/commission fees and ticketing fees.

What could your organization do with that money instead?

Use Event Espresso and the Payment Methods Pro extension to create an event registration system from your existing WordPress website.


Our members choose Payment Methods Pro so they can connect different merchant accounts to various events.

An additional fee like a service or commission fee cannot be added. The Payment Methods Pro add-on allows you to add different merchant accounts so you can connect them to events that you choose. Event Espresso is not a good fit for projects like event directories or event marketplaces.
