Adding A Payment Gateway

Adding A Payment Gateway

If you are arranging events, one of the key aspects to it, is getting paid! You can set up the payment method by going to Event Espresso > Payment Settings. Event Espresso offers a wide range of Payment Gateways, from the PayPal to gateways that are country specific.

Is your preferred gateway not listed? We offer a Custom Gateway Development service!
