Payment services are a vital part of the Conferize registration system, when you want to charge money for tickets.
There are three reasons for this. Security, versatility and speed. Conferize want to offer very secure and globally tested ways of payments for both you as the organizer and for your ticket buyers. Also we want to provide the widest range possible of accepted ways of payment. And finally we want to ensure a quick payout from ticket sales so you can get the money to spend on organizing a great event.
Using these services also means that we can handle both payout and service fees deductions at the same time, instead of having to either hold the money till after the event or to invoice the fees at a later time. All fees are deducted before payout, so no surprises awaits after the event. The money you get in, is yours to spend.
What are the fees?
These vary depending on your bank country and the bank country of your ticket buyers's credit cards. The fee is calculated by the Payment service and deducted the ticket price upon payment by your ticket buyer. In most cases, the fees amount to around 1.4 - 2.9% of the total amount paid plus 0.30 USD or equivalent in other currencies.
Why don't you simply include the payment service fee in the ticket price?
Because the payment service fees are dependent on multiple factors. Among these are the bank country of your account, and the bank country of the ticket buyers credit card, and the chosen currency, it's not possible to calculate the fee accurately before the actual time of payment. And at that time the ticket buyer needs to know exactly what amount s/he have to pay.
