The Check payment method will provide your registrants/attendees with information on how to send a check to pay for their event registration. It can also be used to handle payments via money orders.
This is an onsite payment option which means that attendees/registrants will not leave your site. This is a payment method so no actual funds will be transferred via this payment option.
I configured Check and payments are not being processed. Can you help?
This payment method does not process or transfer actual funds (monies). You’ll need to provide instructions on how an attendee/registrant can pay (e.g. mail a check or money order to a specific address). This can be done by using the Instructions field on the Check payment method settings.
When I refund a payment, does it also refund a payment automatically?
Refunds in Event Espresso 4 are currently a two step process. First, apply the refund through the transactional details screen of Event Espresso in your WP-admin (WP dashboard). Then process a refund through the payment option that was used. For example, if an attendee/registrant paid via money order, then you would need to refund their payment through a new check or new money order.
How can I setup a recurring payment or subscription through the Check payment method?
Recurring or subscription payments are not currently supported through the Check payment method.
