Hi – Is Paypal, as a payment method, included in the base package, or is it an add-on? If so how much?

Also, I need to collect a lot of detail for multiple attendees. Again is this possible in the base package, or do I need an add-on?

Thanks for your help.

Hi Barry,

Both are standard features:

Hi Josh, thanks for the quick reply. THat’s great to know.

I have a client who runs a dance school for kids and is running a Summer Camp, so we are looking at using EE4 for this, looks good so far.

I notice in another post that you cannot have a situation where a parent registers their 3 children and doesn’t get assigned a ticket themselves.

Could you set up the form that it collects the childs name and the parents name and uses the childs name for the ticket?

Thanks again.

Hi Barry,

You can add custom questions to the event, so you could change the first name and last name questions from the default ‘Personal information’ question group to request the Child first and Last name.

Then use custom questions for the Parents first/last name and use the default email field for the parent.

The ticket will then show up in the child’s name, as will the whole registration but you can change the details used within the emails to use the parents details

Would that work?

Have you signed up to Test Drive Event Espresso 4? You can see how the full plugin works there and create a test event to see how it will work if you prefer.

Hi Tony,

Thanks for the detailed reply. I didn’t realise I could test it out, so I will do that and make sure it works for me.

Thanks for the help.
