Hi Patricia,

At this time, Event Espresso’s payment features are set globally, so any of the payment features that are enabled will work for all events.

Hi Josh
I need to customize payment options for each event. So what I want to know is how to get around this – it’s too restrictive for me.

I can get by if I can turn off a payment option for an individual event (e.g. in an ideal world I would turn off the invoice function for the workshop series I’m running and maintain it for the conference that is currently taking registrations. I do not want to offer any cheque payment options at all for my workshop series. People end up reneging and it costs me money. Unfortunately when the developer who set this up for me recommended Event Espresso – I didn’t understand it was so inflexible. Any ideas?

The invoice payment setting can be set to not display as an option on the payment page.

Then set the email options to send out the registration confirmation before payment is made.

Each event can have its own custom email, so for the conference registration confirmation email, include the [invoice_link] shortcode. When someone registers for the conference, but does not use the online payment option, they will receive an email that will include a link to download an invoice.

For the workshops, make sure that the [invoice_link] shortcode is not included in the registration confirmation email content.
