Event payment processing

Here we look at everything event based from Trade Shows to Ticket Brokers, our advisors have it covered!

Event credit card payments

Finding the best card machine and merchant account for events can be difficult. Each individual element of the event can have different requirements when it comes to card processing, so it’s important to make the right choice first time around. Here we look at the best event payment systems and how they can work for you.

Event management payment system

Accepting card payments can be made easier if your merchant account provider integrates with the booking or management system you already use. Speak to our industry experts about accepting payments for events and how streamlining this with your current system can make business a lot more straight forward. For non-face to face such as event registration payment processing, using a virtual terminal is common practice.


Event management payments

We understand that months and sometimes years’ worth of planning goes into making an event take place, therefore appreciate how important it is to keep track of your event payments. Our experts can talk to you about email invoicing, onsite payments and event manager payment gateways.

Event payment options

When it comes to the event itself accepting payments onsite can prove problematic, mainly due to two elements. Firstly, finding a provider who is happy to accommodate a short-term contract for the days, weeks or months you will need them without paying for the service when it’s not being used. Secondly, finding event payment services to work in your location. Portable terminals work with Wi-Fi or GPRS, enabling transactions to take place almost anywhere, ensure you discuss your requirements with our team.


Ticket broker merchant account

Selling tickets for events rather than organising them? Not a problem, our industry experts are experienced in both ticket merchant accounts and accepting event payments online. Working with third party ticket brokers is deemed high risk, by merchant account providers. The reason for this is due to the large number of chargebacks experienced within industry. For example, a music concert could be cancelled for many reasons, resulting in refunds to the customer and leaving the ticket broker to recuperate those funds from the original event organiser.

For these reasons, you can expect to have a longer settlement period between transactions, often after the event has taken place. Also, you could be expected to have a rolling reserve on account to save guard against any unforeseen problems that could occur.

Our advisors will discuss with you how you wish to take payments for event tickets and discuss your options with you from collecting event payments online to face to face sales. Please note your terms and conditions will be assessed including; refund policy, contact details, agreements with suppliers etc.
