Offline Payments - Optional

In certain circumstances your guests may not be able to purchase tickets to your event through PayPal or with a credit card. Whindo now supports offline payments. Here is how it works. If enabled, (turned off by default) buyers will have the option during checkout to pay by check or money order. If selected the buyer will receive an invoice for the tickets contained in their order. Once you receive the payment you can complete the order which will email the buyer the purchased tickets and a receipt. Note: Whindo fees of $0.99 per paid ticket apply to offline payments as well. But PayPal transaction fees will not be deducted. free online event registration software
