EventMobi uses Stripe's Connect product to allow you to accept registration fees and payments through your registration site. You can offer multiple tickets and at any price (or for free if you want to offer a pay-later option). However, due to the vastly different tax requirements from province to province and state to state, you must include tax in your ticket prices.
Since all payments are held, processed, and transferred through Stripe, you can also use it to manage any refunds or adjustments.
Stripe takes 2.9% plus an additional 30 cents on every transaction. Consider the following example:
- You sell a ticket for $100.
- The user purchases this ticket and pays $100 exactly.
- Stripe will take 2.9% ($2.90) and a further 30¢, totalling $3.20.
- You will receive $96.80
If you want $100 from every ticket, you actually need to set the price to $103.30.
- 103.30 - 2.9% = $100.31
- 100.31 - 30¢ = $100.01
EventMobi currently does not charge any application or other fees for processing payments.
Refunds and Disputes
EventMobi never comes into contact with the funds, which go through Stripe and are paid directly to you. As such, any disputes or refunds should be negotiated between you and the relevant registrant(s).
If you have refunded any tickets, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know so we can delete them in the registration system.
