Good morning. I have never used and we are looking into using that as a replacement for paypal. In the paypal checkout page, some of our non computer savvy registrants are not seeing the ‘checkout as guest’ option and assuming they have to create a paypal account. To avoid this, we were thinking about changing to the portal. Can anyone show me what a typical payment page looks like? Im assuming is similar to paypal in that it processes all payments offsite based on the information that event espresso sends it, correct? thanks

No. can accept payments off site and allows you to accept payments onsite.

Offsite = SIM method
Onsite = AIM method.

The AIM method requires PCI compliance, and SSL on your servers. The SIM method does not.

Both methods though have pages that are basically web forms that ask for the pertinent information. And neither involve the confusing PayPal method which confuses many people into thinking they need a PayPal account. There is no end user account for The users just need a credit card.

The Authorize SIM does send them offsite, 2 checkout and e-exact also take the payments on their sites.

Note that Authorize AIM takes the payment on your site.

I’d still recommend an SSL certificate on your site if you’re using SIM, so the return page can load securely.
