RSVPMaker is a free WordPress plugin you can use on your own website to promote meetings and take registrations or reservations. To promote events, you can use the integration with the MailChimp mailing list service and to charge for events you can use PayPal.

This event scheduling system is used by businesses, political campaigns, community groups, networking organizations, and professional conferences. In combination with services like YouTube Live, you can use it to organize webinars on a budget.

If you run a WordPress website, download the RSVPMaker plugin to add these functions for your own site. Our professional services are available if you would like help with RSVPMaker, website design and programming, email campaign management, copywriting, or event website hosting.

This demo shows off some new pricing options, such as the ability to set a price for parties who want to reserve a whole table at a banquet, rather than booking admission for individual diners.

Instead of counting the number of guests, the Table of 8 option set here provides a flat price for the party. If fewer than 8 guests are listed, the registration will be padded with placeholder entries (names can be added later). If too many guests are listed, a warning will be shown.

You can also establish coupon codes for discounts. The discounts only apply to individual registrations however.

Here’s what the pricing setup looks like on the back end.

After registering, you can simulate a credit card payment using the test card number provided in the confirmation message. If no payment is recorded, you should receive a follow up “Payment Required” email after about 30 minutes. This is an optional feature you turn on from the settings screen.

Our hero
Our hero

The RSVPMaker Entrepreneur Of The Year Program is celebrating its 30th anniversary, 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.

You can step through the RSVP process to see how the prompt to pay online appears after the user enters basic information. You can simulate a payment with a test credit card.

Testing the ability to display an additional form field, “Grade Level” on guest form for the kids but not on the form for parents.

The new form editor makes this easier (although it was possible to do it before).
