Managing Payments #

Most of the common tasks related to collecting payments can be managed via your Stripe account. This includes pay-outs, declined payments, receipts and refunds.

  • Collecting payments is currently only available for organizers with a Stripe account in the United States. 
  • Additional fees will apply when collecting payments:
    • Sched service fee:
      • 5% of the registration fee
      • Added to the registration fee and charged to attendees
      • eg. if you set the registration fee as $20 attendees will be charged $21.
    • Stripe transaction fees:
      • 2.9% + $0.30 (USD) per transaction.
      • +1% for international cards (non-U.S.)
      • +1% if currency conversion is required (to USD)
      • Charged to the organizer
      • eg. if an attendee pays $21 using a U.S. card the transaction fee will be $0.91
  • All major credit or debit cards are accepted, including Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover & Diners.

  2. Enter the email domains in the Account Creation Domain Whitelist field (eg. @sched.com)
