There are several options for requesting and processing payments for purchases/donations made at an "in person" event:
- In person check-out stations: Volunteers/Staff record purchases by bidder number to place items in "carts". At the end of the event, guests are directed to check-out stations where volunteers/staff review their carts, accept/process payment and issue receipts. You also have the option to accept cash payments for incidentals (such as drinks, raffe tickets etc.). Note: these options require all guests to have a ticket/bidder number.
- Send invitations to self check-out: Email invitations to all guests with unpaid purchases during or after event. Link provides access to review their cart, enter credit card info (or process vaulted card) with receipt emailed as payment is completed.
- Bulk process vaulted credit cards on all (or selected) unpaid orders during or after event. Receipts are emailed as payments are processed. Note: Bulk Processing requires an Acorn, Plus, or Professional subscription.
- Review unpaid orders and process vaulted credit cards individually from the Orders page.
Note that it is common to use more than one approach - eg send invitations to self check-out to everyone, but offer check-out stations for those needing assistance or wanting to pay by cash/check then processing vaulted cards for anyone that did not check-out during the event.
