How Can We Help?

PayPal Integration

If you charge for events, you can collect money online using integration with PayPal. RSVPMaker also integrates with Stripe, another payment service.

The pay by PayPal / pay by credit card buttons will appear as part of the confirmation message when someone registers for one of your events.

Attendees who click on the PayPal button will get a pop up prompt inviting them to log in and pay.

Those who prefer to pay by credit card can click one of the credit card icons (or the button on the screen above that says Pay with Debit of Credit Card) and be prompted for credit card information.

To obtain the required credentials for the REST API, go to developer.paypal.com and log in with your PayPal password. The developer’s dashboard allows you to register multiple sandbox accounts for testing and create an app for your integration. Creating an app just means you are generating the API access keys required for the integration with RSVPMaker. Just give your app a name, associate it with a sandbox account for testing, and click the Create App button.

Then copy the keys (the client id and client secret) for both the Sandbox (test) and Live versions of the app.

Once you have copied and pasted all the credentials, into the Payments Tab of the RSVPMaker settings, it’s a good idea to toggle the Operating Mode setting from Production to Sandbox. Create a sample event with sample pricing and test the integration. For testing, you can make payments using one of the sandbox accounts associated with your developer account on PayPal, which is funded by imaginary money.

Once you are satisfied that everything is working properly, go to the Payments tab in RSVPMaker settings and toggle the integration from Sandbox to Production to accept live payments.
