Integration with Paypal

With PayPal integration, you can charge your attendees for tickets. Your attendees will be able to purchase tickets via the registration form, website, or my account page.

You will need a Paypal developer account and have a business account with PayPal to get your Client ID and Client Secret information to integrate with InEvent. To access the PayPal Developer Dashboard, create a PayPal developer account here and for PayPal visit PayPal.com.

There are two ways to link your PayPal account with InEvent: Company level and Event level.

Company level

To link your PayPal account with the platform, click on your company logo in the top left of your page.

On the menu to the left side, scroll down to the Integrations field and click on PayPal. Then, in the screen to the right, enter your Client ID and Client Secret into the designated fields.

Under Mode, you can select from Production or Sandbox.

If you wish to have a Sandbox account, there are two options: you can either create a new trial account to test your registrations or have a permanent paid sandbox that you can use for a year. If you would like to go with the second option, please contact your sales rep.
