You are ready to start selling tickets but you need to be able to take in the money and manage your transactions.

Quick start

There are two payment gateways available for use with HeySummit: Stripe, and PayPal Business.

  1. To begin connecting either, go to Event Setup > Payment Methods.

  2. In the centre of the page you will find both options presented.

  3. Click connect on the option you would like.

For Stripe

  1. This will open a new page.

  2. On this new page, you will be asked to enter your email address.

  3. Follow the prompts on this page to sign in to your Stripe account and connect it to HeySummit.

Note: connecting your own Stripe account will mean attendees will no longer be able to pay by PayPal. Do not forget to take a look at what payment cards Stripe accepts too.

For PayPal Business

  1. You will be presented with a modal prompting you for your PayPal Client ID and PayPal Client Secret. You will need to get these from PayPal.

    1. In a separate tab, visit PayPal Developer and sign in to your account.

    2. Click on Default Application to display your Client ID. You will also see here an option to reveal your secret. Both of these codes need to be copied in full and pasted into the prompt on HeySummit.

  2. Once you have pasted the codes into their relevant fields on the prompt, click Save.

Please note: You can only connect these accounts to your event while logged in as the Event Organiser.

If you connect PayPal as your custom payment gateway, attendees will be able to pay with either PayPal account or by card. Don forget to take a look at what payment cards PayPal accepts.
