Paid Ticketing

For your Streams events, there is an option to require paid ticketing to get into your events. In this article, we'll talk about how you can do this with Stripe, how to set-up ticketing, and answer some of the more frequently answered questions about this process.

Monetizing Your Virtual Events with Stripe

Stripe is a global leader in payment processing. With Stripe, you can easily sell tickets to your event by collecting credit card payments all in one place, with no messy redirects to a third-party ticketing platform. Customers fill out their card details on a secure Stripe form at the time of event registration, and the payment is instantly sent to your Stripe account.
