RSVPMaker provides online scheduling, invitations, RSVP tracking, and PayPal payment processing. Variations on this event scheduling system have been used by political campaigns, community groups, networking organizations, and professional conferences to schedule their events. A recent addition is support for Google Hangouts on Air for organizing webinars on a budget.

If you run a WordPress website, download the RSVPMaker plugin to add these functions for your own site. Optionally, you can send RSVPMaker event invitations by email using ChimpBlast, a companion plugin that works with the MailChimp broadcast email service.

Our professional services are available if you would like help with RSVPMaker, website design and programming, email campaign management, copywriting, and other services.

Test Drive

You can test drive RSVPMaker on this site (you will be able to try the editor, preview your events, and test the RSVP process, but events will not be published).

The mock events below show some of the ways RSVPMaker can be used.

The RSVPMaker Entrepreneur Of The Year Program is celebrating its 30th anniversary in 2016, and as we kick off our search for the country’s most innovative entrepreneurs, we invite you to nominate someone in your community, or even yourself, to be named among the next generation of legacy builders.

Entrepreneurs are not easily defined. They are men and women, old and young, educated in the Ivy League and at the School of Hard Knocks. This much about them is consistent, however: They are visionaries. They are people of passion. And they have the ambition, drive and talent to take an idea and create a market where none existed before.

This would be a typical event setup for my son’s cub scout pack, a 3-day event with RSVPs requested and families encouraged to pay online via PayPal.

You can step through the RSVP process to see how the prompt to pay online appears after the user enters basic information. If you click the link to pay, you will be redirected to the Cub Scout Pack 179’s PayPal checkout page (the integration is live, so don’t complete a payment unless you really do want to make a donation).

If you try to submit this form without filling in the required fields (first name, last name, email, or the extra custom required field), you will get an error message. The field validation works as an JavaScript check or server-side validation if the client code doesn’t work for some reason.

Using the shortcode-based template system for the forms, I added my custom field in this format:

[rsvpfield textfield=”extrarequired” required=”1″]
