How do I charge attendees to join webinars?

    GoTo Webinar organizers can accept payments on their webinar registration pages by connecting GoTo Webinar with Stripe, a third-party payment integration. This allows you to charge for your content, increase revenue and manage payments, all from GoTo Webinar. Registrants can pay online using major credit and debit cards (i.e., Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express).

    Once your GoTo Webinar account is connected to Stripe, you can set a price for your webinar, accept and receive payments, and manage and issue cancellations and refunds.

    Before you begin...

    Read through the following for additional details.
    • Stripe is currently the only supported payment service.
    • You need to have a verified Stripe account to be able to accept payments for your webinars.
    • Your attendees need a major credit or debit card to register and pay – they do not need to have Stripe accounts.
    • Stripe charges a fee per transaction (fee varies by currency, see Stripe's pricing for details.
    • You can test payments by setting your webinar at a price and going through the registration flow as an attendee. You can refund yourself afterwards.

    Connect your GoTo Webinar account to your Stripe account (admins)

    Admins can connect their GoTo Webinar account to a Stripe account from the GoTo Webinar Settings page or Admin Center.

      Note: You may want to add cancellation and/or refund information in the description field of the webinar so as to be clear to registrants how you handle cancellations and/or refunds. This description is also added to the confirmation email your registrants receive after they register and pay.
