You can include payment options on invitation-only or open-invitation events. To implement paid registration, you follow these steps:
Tip The only currency the Trumba Connect paid registration feature currently supports is US dollars.
To support online monetary transactions on events, Trumba takes advantage of integration features developed by established payment gateway providers. The payment gateway opens a connection between your Trumba account and your online merchant account (which in turn is connected to your bank account).
When a registered attendee submits payment for your Trumba event, the payment travels through the gateway to your merchant account. The merchant account you use can be one that you already have or one that you open for the purpose of receiving payments for your Trumba events.
The payment gateway you use determines the methods of payment you can offer your attendees.
Currently Trumba supports the following payment gateways. The process from the visitor perspective is slightly different with each.
|Gateway||Available payment methods||Description|
|Authorize.net||Credit/debit card||You can specify which of the major card types you want to accept, and
attendees can complete transactions without having to leave the Trumba event actions page.

Visitors select their method of payment and are directed to the appropriate form on the PayPal site, where they
provide their payment details. Upon confirmation, they are directed back to the Trumba event actions window, where they finalize the transaction.
