Overview - How Does the Registration Setup Work

When you add a new Event, you have the ability to select the type of Attendee Management you will be using for the Event - either Collect RSVPs or Sell Tickets (includes free or paid Registrations).

The Ticketing/Registration option is typically used for registration or ticketing style events like meetings, conferences, seminars, networking events, fundraisers, performances, galas, exhibitions or for-profit parties and social events. Again, you can set up your Tickets/Registrations to be paid or free.

NOTE: We do not allow for sales of any kind of gambling, gaming or contests, including raffles and raffle tickets.

When you select the Ticketing/Registration option, you have the ability to customize your registration checkout forms to collect detailed information on your attendees as well as payments, and you can collect registrations either through the Event Webpage tool or by embedding our registration form on your own website.

We provide a handy "Getting Started" Guide that walks you through all the important steps in setting up your registration checkout form and tickets. However, on the main Registration Setup page in the Event you can also click on the tabs under "Registration Settings" to walk through all the setup options available.

If you are intending to collect credit card payments for your registrations, we offer a choice of payment processors you can use; see "Setting Up Payment Processing in Planning Pod" for options and setup details.
