Collect Payments Within Your Organization Cheaply

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!
