We can't guarantee a commitment to deliver on this feature request, but it should indicate some awareness that we have heard your feedback and could be taken under consideration for a future release.

Hi there, I just wanted to share a piece of feedback on the new beta event pages. I really appreciate the look and style of it, but there was one limiting option that prevented me from being able to use it. Specifically, we collect payment via phone call after someone registers for our event. There was no option under payment to reflect this. A solution would be to allow the user to be able to create their own payment option.

PROBLEM WITH EVENT FEES

I have a current event on the Legacy platform and had complaints because paying by check or paying at the door is no longer an option. For whatever reason I have had a 50% drop off in sales due to this feature, I have people telling me they do not want to use PayPal, they don't have a payPal account etc.. I know they don't have to have a paypal account to use but OMG!

The PP fees are high and not allowing me to have people register and pay by cash or check at the door is ridiculous.  

 

First of all this NEVER had to be removed from the Legacy option and not having it in the new platform needs I have to move my business to another provider which make me sad since I have been paying fees monthly to CC for over ten years.

I need pay by check as well, especially now that Eventbrite has upped their fees.

I want to create an event. BUT we are a financial institution and can't use paypal for payment for security issues.  MY events are not always FREE so your free tag at the bottom of the page will cause confusion.  We want to allow people to register for an event and pay using other methods. Looks like you are forcing PayPal and a fee.  Is that true?
