How to Set Up Your Account Ready to Accept Event Registrations

This article will guide you through the steps to get event registration ready to be used within your account.

Online Payment Methods

If you wish to accept payment from an online payment gateway (such as credit card or PayPal) you first need to ensure you have signed up for your account. We currently support two online payment methods:

  1. Stripe
  2. Paypal

You will first need to sign up for a free account at your preferred gateways website. Once you have done this, you need to log into your Elvanto account and go to the Settings -> Integrations page, click the ‘Add Integration’ button and select your payment gateway you wish to set-up.

Payment Methods

If you have enabled any online payment gateways, they will display here. Offline payment methods my also be added. When a person registering for your event chooses an offline payment method, they will be issued an unpaid invoice requiring payment

All payment methods allow you to add fees. This will allow you to pass on things like credit card fees to your registrants. This article explains how fees and tax are calculated.

Part Payments

Part payments allow registrants to pay only a portion of the amount owed for a registration.

If you choose to allow part payments, you can specific the minimum amount or percentage of each part payment within the event’s registration section.

Invoice

Choose how you would like to handle invoice numbers and aspects of the layout of your invoices.

Ticket

Configure whether you would like to display QR codes or barcodes on your tickets.
