Setting Up the Payment Method of an Event

In this article

If your event is a paid event, it is compulsory for it to have a payment method setup. By default, GEVME will automatically add a cheque payment method for you if your event is a paid event. You can then of course edit or add more payment methods if required. Payment methods in GEVME can be broadly grouped under two categories:

  1. Online Payment Methods
    1. PayPal
    2. Credit Card
  2. Offline Payment Methods
    1. Cheque
    2. Bank Transfer
    3. At the Event

This article will explain how to add, edit and delete a payment method. For more information on each online and offline payment method, see the articles Online Payment Methods and Offline Payment Methods respectively.
