New to using events - questions about credit card payments

0 Votes
We have a small non-profit and we're new to creating events using CC. We previously created on another platform (DonorPerfect) and are able to create without having to create a PayPal account to accept credit card payments. Is there any way to do this on ConstantContact without us having to create a PayPal account? The interface is much better and has a lot more features when creating events. The only downfall is we have to create a business PayPal account to accept payments, which are then filled with fees from both PayPal and ConstantContact. Am I missing something or maybe in the future will there be any other platforms introduced that will be able to accept the credit card payments without being forced to create PayPal?

Hello @SeamensCenterDE ,


At this time, only PayPal is available as an online payment processor for events. Our devs are currently looking into contracting with other payment processors.
