Corsizio provides you with the ability to accept online deposits to effectively secure a commitment from your attendees. This is especially useful for events that have a large ticket price or financial commitment. You can then collect the remainder of the funds via another online payment with Corsizio or collect them offline or manually in the method of your choosing.
To configure online deposit payments, follow these steps:
When you are creating or editing a class or event, in Step 2 — Pricing & Registration, you will see an option to enable deposits. Be sure that this feature is checked, if you would like to give your attendee the option of paying a deposit only versus the full amount. (Make sure that you have configured and enabled online payments to accept online deposit payments.)
When you enable deposit payments, you will be provided with a field to enter the amount of the deposit required and an optional date selection to indicate the last date up to which deposits will be accepted. If you do not input a date, then your attendees will be able to pay a deposit only right up until start of the event.
During this configuration, you also have the ability to enable automated notification reminders that will be sent to attendees who owe funds as part of their event registration. You have the option to set the date on which these reminders would go out automatically. You can also send a notification or payment request for any funds owed to an attendee manually via their registration card.
For most efficient reporting and business practices, be sure to apply any offline payments as manual payments on the attendee’s profile (registration card) within Corsizio. This will ensure that they are sent a receipt and your reports and records are most accurate.
Be sure to accurately set up your event pricing before you start getting registrations.
Note: For optimum security, Corsizio does not save any credit card data. If your attendee pays in instalments or requires some additional charge, which they would like on their credit card, they must input or give you the number directly each time. It is your responsibility to handle that credit card number with utmost security.
Every time a payment is recorded or charged, a receipt is automatically sent to the attendee and you can also resend the receipt at any time in the future, as may be required. The receipt will detail everything related to the payments of that attendee for that event, as they have been applied to date.
