You can require payment for your meeting when using Registration. These payments will be linked with your PayPal account. This article will guide you through setting up your PayPal account to accept payments, creating meetings with the correct settings, using the Registration Manager, and what your guests will have to do to make a payment.

Setting up PayPal

  • To set up your PayPal account to accept payments, log in to your Meeting account as the Admin, click to the Options Menu in the top left and then click on PayPal Settings.

Guest Experience

You must use Express Checkout if you'd like Mobile Users to pay for your meeting.
If your PayPal account does not accept Express Checkout payments, your guests must register and pay before using the Mobile App.

When a guest clicks on the registration link, they will confirm their email address and then they'll see the registration form.

The guests will enter the information in the form and then click Pay Now at the bottom. A new tab or browser window will open to their PayPal account login to finalize the payment.
