Greetings for a happy and prosperous 2011 from the entire team at Eventzilla! We wish to thank all our clients for your continued trust and support.
Our first official post this year is also to make an announcement about the release of a very important feature that we have been working on behind the covers over the latter part of 2010. Without further ado, we are excited to announce Eventzilla’s advanced integration with PayPal!
Here is what this means..
What does it mean for me?
- If you are hosting a free event, there will be no impact
- If you are hosting a paid event and collect payments through your PayPal account, then you will no longer receive an invoice from Eventzilla to pay your Eventzilla fee. Click here to view pricing details in your currency. The fee will be automatically deducted from your transaction in real time – thereby saving you the trouble of yet another invoice at a later date.
Does this mean that I will never receive an invoice from Eventzilla?
You will not receive an invoice if you only use your PayPal account to collect payments for your registration / ticket sales. However an invoice will be issued as usual for all other types of payments.
Who pays the Eventzilla convenience fee?
Option A: You can make your event attendees pay the small convenience fee
Example: Your event registration price: $10 (With this option your attendees will pay $10+$1 fee when they register online. $10 will be sent to your PayPal account and $1 will be sent to Eventzilla’s PayPal account instantaneously)
Option B: You can choose to pay the small convenience fee yourself.
Example: Your event registration price: $10 (With this option your attendees will pay $10 when they register online. $9 will be sent to your PayPal account and $1 will be sent to Eventzilla’s PayPal account instantaneously)
Note: PayPal transaction fees are not included in the Eventzilla fee and these too will automatically deducted in real time during the transaction. See PayPal website for further details. You can also use PayPal fee calculator to calculate applicable PayPal fees for your transactions.
