Don't want the hassle of choosing a payment gateway and setting up a merchant account? With Cvent Payment Services (CPS), we can handle all of that for a percentage of the transactions you process. All you need to do is talk to a sales representative, review number 6 in our Terms of Use, and follow these steps to set up a merchant account in your Pay-As-You-Go event.

Setting Up Your Merchant Account
Follow these steps to set up a new Cvent Payment Services (CPS) merchant account to use with your Pay-As-You-Go events.

1 Create a new Pay-As-You-Go event.
For your first event, you'll be taken to the Event Build Wizard after clicking the link in your email. To the right of the canvas, you can set up your event's information. Give it a name, then a quick description, if necessary. Select which language you want your event to appear in, then select a locale to determine how the date, time, and currency will display.

Establish whether anyone can register for your event or if you only want those who you invite to attend the event. If you want to limit how many people can register, enter a capacity. Enter a registration goal of how many invitees you're estimating to attend. This data can be used later for reporting purposes.
 
Select the start and end dates and times for the event. The Registration Deadline is the last day invitees will be able to register. Set the time zone to match the venue's.

Click Continue.

2 Enter the event's location. Type your location into the search bar. A Google map will then appear on your canvas, and the venue's information will automatically pre-populate. Want to manually type in your address instead? Click Enter it Manually and provide your venue's location.

Click Continue.


3 Create a fee. On step 3, you'll be asked which currency you'll accept and if you'd like to charge registrants for admission. Select your currency from the dropdown, then enter an amount greater than or equal to $1.00 in the Price ($) column for the General Attendee registration type. Then click Continue.

3 Determine your payment settings. In the Payments section, check the box next to "Credit Card," then determine if you want to make the security code required.

From the "What will you use to process credit card transactions?" dropdown, select Cvent Payment Services (New). Give your merchant account a name, enter your legal business name, select the currency you'd like to receive your event revenue in, and select a statement name that will appear on your attendees' credit card statements when they register for your event.

When you're done, click Finish. The merchant account will now be ready to use for your events.

You can continue building out this event, or delete the event if it was just used to create a CPS merchant account.



Linking Your Merchant Account to an Existing Event
If you've already created a Pay-As-You-Go event and you want to use your newly created merchant account, follow these steps to link your merchant account to your existing event.

1 Access the Event Configuration page. Begin by selecting your Pay-As-You-Go event. Hover over Event Details and, under General, click Event Configuration. Then click Edit.

2 Connect your merchant account.
In the Pricing section, check the box beside Fees. Then, select your merchant account from the dropdown.

Check the boxes beside the credit card types you're accepting, then click Save.

Now you're ready to set up fees.
