Video Tip - Go to the 8:31 mark of the video to view information on how to set up Credit Card Processing with WePay.

Every Planning Pod account is set up to accept credit card payments online via our payment processing partner WePay. You can accept credit card payments for two things in your account:

There's no approval required and no monthly fee for using WePay. There are fees that apply for credit card transactions, which are as follows:

  • For credit card payments on invoices: 2.9% + $0.30 credit card processing fee per payment
  • For credit card payments on registrations: 2.9% credit card processing fee + 2.25% + $0.99 service fee per ticket.

WePay policy quotes that payouts on credit card transactions typically occur 2-5 business day after the payment is processed.

NOTE: WePay reserves the right to hold processed payments in reserve for a period of time in case of chargebacks and refunds. By default, WePay has set a maximum payout/distribution on processed payments to $10,000/week for Planning Pod customers. If you wish to inquire about having this limit adjusted, please contact us at

You need to confirm that you want to accept credit card payments through Planning Pod using WePay. If you do not want to use this service, no action is required and your WePay account will expire after 90 days.
