Multiple Currencies for a single event

    I know that you can only have one payment gateway selected per event setup, however, I am at a quandary to collect CAD for local participants for a specific session. I was going to use CPS but they require exclusivity (which I don't agree with) and I need another option to collect CAD and have a check written to us for the amount received.

    I see that you can use PayPal Express Checkout, but I don't have any idea how this works, nor is there good information on the help area.

    HELP!

    Maybe your client success representative or cvent account manager can assist?

    Hi Lindsay! To echo what Hallie said, definitely ask your Account Manager but I would strongly suggest to also reach out to PayPal. They are super helpful!

    Paypal is super easy to use. We don't have it connected in Cvent, but I have used it as a payment system in the past. Is Stripe an option for payment gateway (our events are free)? If so, I would recommend Stripe over Paypal... it has a slicker interface.

    We have paypal connected to our Cvent for all payments. You can also activate offline payments and make the option be "check." This is a manual process to pull the financial report and see who owes money and invoice them as so.

    Because we are State university, so we have to use TouchNet.
