Collect Payments Within Your Organization Cheaply

October 11, 2016

For many community and civic organizations, there is a need to collect payments from members throughout each year. From membership fees to contributions for members-only events, payments need to be collected easily, with as little overhead as possible.

Did you know that Eventbrite charges 2.5% of the ticket price, plus $.99 per ticket, and a 3% payment processing fee? If the cost per member is $10, each person ends up paying over 10% to Eventbrite and your organization loses out on vital funds. If your organization collects payments through Eventbrite, you could end up paying hundreds to thousands of dollars per year in fees! This is madness- and you don’t have to continue doing it.

Save money with JotForm

JotForm, the easiest online form builder, allows your organization to easily collect payments online. JotForm integrates with PayPal, Stripe, Square and more. Plus, JotForm never takes a percentage of the ticket price and never charges a per-ticket fee. You can choose your preferred payment processor, keeping in mind that most charge a 2.9% processing fee.

Our free Starter plan lets you collect up to 10 payments per month (there will still be a processing fee that goes to PayPal, Stripe, or whatever other processor you select). Need to collect more than 10 payments each month? It’s only $19/month to collect up to 1,000 payments with our Bronze plan. Compare that with Eventbrite: if you collect 1,000 payments, you will end up paying $990 plus 2.5% of each ticket price and a 3% processing fee!

Easily create a useful payment form for your members

With JotForm, you can easily design your form the way you want it to look. Our online form building tool is made to be accessible and intuitive for everyone. Adding a headline, description, logo, fonts, and images  -- along with your payment processor -- are a breeze to add. Then you can choose a range for the number of tickets or products that a person can buy at once, allow recurring donations or payments, or include promo codes.

Been doing this with PayPal and stripe for years! Now you add Square!! Amazing! Now if you just had an easy way to visually edit the response so we could make it look like a ticket.... Like EventBrite

Is it possible to integrate with a shopping cart that will then link with the payment option?

Would love to integrate with our platform. Do you have an option such as stripe-connect?

I am not sure I am reading this right. Are you offering to process payments for less than PayPal does (but we'd still use PayPal) or is it that actually you will now charge for us to link to paypal through jotform if we process more than 10 payments per month with them? we're very happy with jotform - and pay gladly for the service - but the ability to link to paypal to process fees for service seems integral and not an 'add on.' Can you please explain? Happy to discuss.
