Using Paypal to Collect Meeting Fees
Does your chapter want to accept credit cards? Are your members asking for a payment option that doesn't involve requesting a check? Paypal is an easy and inexpensive way to accept meeting fee payment via credit card and gives your attendees another option for registration payment. And the good news is that your chapter doesn't need its own website to use it!
If you're interested in establishing Paypal as a payment option for your chapter programs, follow these easy steps:
Have your chapter's bank account and routing numbers available.
Visit www.paypal.com and follow the prompts to establish a business/merchant account .
Once your Paypal account is established and confirmed (this may take up to a week), call the Society office at (262) 786-8771 to give them your Paypal account's username and password (this will be kept confidential and used only by authorized staff members in step 4) and indicate for which upcoming program you plan to use Paypal.
Once your program flyer is approved and complete, Society staff will post the flyer on www.iscebs.org, along with a link to pay directly via Paypal. The link will take users to a checkout page listing the chapter, program title, date and fee paid where they complete the transaction and receive immediate confirmation via email.
Questions? Contact ISCEBS at firstname.lastname@example.org or (262) 786-8771.
Is your chapter considering its own website? Many chapters have found that a website is a great way to keep connected with current and potential members and utilize the creative talents of their volunteers. Whether your chapter is exploring the possibility or already has one, you can visit these sites and get an idea of what other chapters are doing.
