Credit Card Processing

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

By setting up a personal Stripe or Square account, event hosts can enable credit card payments for their events. This means that attendees can purchase their tickets or fundraising participants can donate or pay their winning bids directly from their phones using credit card payments.

Funds are then transferred into your account within 48 hours of each transaction.

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

The fees associated with both companies are the same, and Accelevents does not charge credit card fees on top of that.

Stripe

  • Stripe charges 2.9% plus 30 cents a transaction.

  • This fee is non-refundable even if the organizer absorbs the fee.

  • Accelevents does not charge credit card fees on top of the Stripe fee.
