Event espresso to handle registration, but payment is accepted in person?

Is there a way to set up an event that has a price listed, but no transaction takes place via event espresso rather the money changes hands in person at the event prior to the event? Clear as mud?
I’d like to keep track of the registrations, but no money needs to change hands.
1 caveat is I need to maintain all the other transactions for other events and have them not be affected by any changes.

Specifically, we accept payments via Paypal and in cash in person at the event. I create an event for the Paypal users and I want to create one for the cash in hand users. Or is there a better way to do this?

Jason,

There currently isn’t a way to do this since you can’t decide which payment option is applied to which event. The only thing I can think of to try is to set the event as a free event and hide the “Free Event” information with CSS. Then you can add details in the description to inform the attendees to bring payment to the event.

would the CSS changes affect everything? How do you set a free event, just put 0.00 in the price?

for that matter, where is this bit of CSS you say I can change to make the price disappear?

Hi Jason,

If you added the code below, it would only remove the price for the free events.

.free_event {
  display: none;
}

Yes. You just leave the price as 0.00.

In which .css file? Was looking for a while before finding another forum post, the PHP change for it. Which would be better?

Examples on our site:

BTW…from the looks of the forums, this may be a great feature to add in future upgrades:) Lots of people talking about it.

You can add the CSS anywhere that’s convenient. If you have a theme option that lets you add custom CSS that’s a good place. Or you can use a plugin like the my custom CSS plugin.

Changing the PHP will lead to more maintenance down the road so it’s not the best solution.
