How can I start accepting payments for my paid event?
Before you can begin accepting money, we need to know two things:
1) Who is receiving the money (legal name not just display name)
2) Where the money is being sent (your bank account)
Contact Information: This Contact Information needs to be the legal name and email address of the individual who will be receiving the money. This is for your protection as well as ours. NOTE: This is NOT the same as the event contact. When you create your event, you will have the opportunity to enter a different contact name for the event itself.
Billing Information: UNATION is not a bank and we do not want to be in the business of holding your money. We don’t even want to see it! We let our Secure Payment partners do that for us. Right now we are using only one partner: STRIPE (more to come)
If you have an account already, all you need to do is link your account to your UNATION account. This is quick and easy. You will be prompted to do this when you begin to create a non-free ticket level inside an event. Follow the instructions to log in and link your account. That’s it. You’re ready to create and sell event tickets!
If you don’t have an account with Stripe, you will need to sign up for one to make sure your money and information is kept safe and secure. Creating an account is easy, just make sure that you have your banking information handy.
