Accelevents is happy to now offer two options for credit card processing with your event or fundraiser. We now integrate directly with both Square and Stripe!

In case you were wondering what the differences between the two payment processors are, we've broken them down for you below:


  • Cost: 2.9% + $.30 per transaction (non-refundable even if the fees are absorbed by event organizer)

  • Ticket buyers, bidders, and donors will input their card directly in their own device.

  • Allows for recurring donations (text to give / online)


  • Online Transaction Cost: 2.9% + $.30 per transaction

  • POS (In-Person Charge) Cost: 2.5% + $.10 per transaction

  • Allows for both online transactions and in-person POS transactions with card swiping Note: A Square card reader will be needed to complete in-person transactions. You can order your card reader here.

  • Note: Square is available in the USA, Canada, Japan, Australia, and the United Kingdom only & can only process USD at this time. Click here to see supported countries.
