The Webinato Credit Card Module allows you to accept payment from participants signing up for future events as well as reviewing recorded past events. Payment can be set up in the Manage Events or Manage Recasts section of your Admin Page.
The Webinato interface uses the website PayPal to process credit cards. Registrants do NOT need to have PayPal accounts and will not see any reference to PayPal. PayPal is used as a Credit Card processor only.
Please note that you must have an APPROVED PayPal Payments Pro Subscription. Click here to learn more about it. PayPal must approve your business to accept credit cards directly on your website before we can enable the Credit Card Payment module.
By setting up the Credit Card module, you understand and agree that:
- Payment goes directly from the registrant to your PayPal account WITHOUT going through Webinato.
- Webinato is not responsible for any issues related to credit card processing, refunds, etc.
- Webinato will not provide any customer support for refused payments or any other issues related to credit card processing.
- Webinato cannot be held responsible for any loss of potential revenue.
