  • What would be the best way to go to integrate a payment method for attendance to a course?

    So I do not need a shopping cart, as there are no real products, just paying for securing a place for a course (healthy cooking).

    I am sure lots of people had the same problem, so any suggestions are welcome.

    Simplest way is to use Paypal.

    Set up an account with Paypal, and then you can use paypal url’s to create payment buttons or items

    Paypal lets them pay with either a paypal account or any credit/debit

    For instance

    Pay here

    gets you a years membership to the Gloucester Old Spot pig Breeders Club – feel free to click it, it takes you to a payment screen which you’d need to complete to actually pay !
    code behind it is

    <a href="">Pay here</a>

    The “business” is the username of the one you set up with paypal
    The “item_name” is whatever you want to appear to the customer (and you once they’ve paid!)
    The “amount” is whatever you want them to pay
    You can then amend shipping and currency

    Basically create a paypal account, then just amend the code above – simple

    When someone pays you get an email from paypal giving the customers name, address and email address. You can always then email for any other info you want.

    I use cformsII to create a membership form which integrates into paypal, but it takes a bit of understanding

    visit for a long detailed explanation of how to do this if you want to go down that route

    I would advice you to use EventBrite. I use eventbrite and embed there ticket code to the website.

    I hope this helps 🙂
