Quickly getting sales for my in-person tours of Boston

I have a tour planned to provide an in-person view of some shocking discoveries I have revealed in my book. And I need to find quick ways to sell tickets.

Topics are very juicy... 9/11 and Boston architecture which heralded in the attacks, BEFORE 2001.

I would consider old-fashioned methods, like having someone hand out brochures in busy places. Advertising in publications, but that takes time to get established.


But I suspect the high-tech options are more scalable and cheaper.

I MAY use EventBrite to sell tickets since I want people to be able to buy tickets on their mobile devices, and really do not want ti reprograms my WordPress site, just to have a sub-optimal solution.

I will eventually need a FaceBook page, to help spread referrals. But I would consider prioritizing that Facebook page if that were to be the prime way to promote the tours.

What kinds of things should I consider when making my decision about how to promote and manage my tours?

Thanks

PayPal and/or Square?

I have a merchant PayPal account and a PayPal card swiper. And I am about to start offering in-person tours where I want to accept cash-less payments.

I need to accept as many payment methods as possible, and hopefully turn away no one.

Can I use PayPal to process credit cards without requiring someone to log onto their PayPal account?

Does PayPal accept AMEX and Discover?

If I purchased the EMV Chip Reader from PayPal, is there any reason to use SQUARE?

On a second note...

Does SQUARE offer a lower discount rate than PayPal?

I would consider using both PayPal and SQUARE if they have complementing services.

Thanks

I'm using PayPal SDK to create instant payment.

The code is below

PayPal.Api.Payment createdPayment = PreparePaymentModel(returnUrl, 
    model.CancelUrl, model.PaymentDetails, model.PaymentMethod, 
    model.PaymentIntent, model.CreditCardId);

    // Create a payment using a APIContext
    createdPayment = createdPayment.Create(apiContext);

Does Paypal no longer support Hosted Buttons? I cannot find any of my old hosted buttons on the PayPal site.

What is the trick?

Nowadays, PayPal is one of the most widespread payment systems all over the world. It makes internet payments easy and quite fast. Even online gaming providers which have the premium content option or gaming staff for real money are accepting PayPal in their products. What is more surprising, even online casinos like ones from this list http://free-slots-no-download.com/paypal/ allow you to make payments with it from your account. So I am interested in your opinion about it. How do you think, why it is so popular?

Need a ticket management system for a speaking tour

I need an easy to configure ticket sales service with some basic features:

- At first I will give tickets for free
- I want to switch to charging money per ticket, with the flip of a switch
- I'd like eventually offer the first X tickets for free, then charge a fee after that the free tickets have been taken

I need to support multiple speaking dates with multiple locations

I have no merchant credit card service and need a service which combines payment processing.

I need to accept many payment methods and not require a person to have a PayPal account in order to use a Visa card.

What are some choices?

I do have a WordPress site with a WooCommerce plug-in. But I suspect I would get up and running faster if a choose a full-service website for this.

Thanks

Running the following CURL command:
curl https://tlstest.paypal.com

Open in new window


I am faced with an error to do with the  SSL certificate:

curl: (60) SSL certificate problem, verify that the CA cert is OK. Details:
error:14090086:SSL routines:SSL3_GET_SERVER_CERTIFICATE:certificate verify failed
More details here: http://curl.haxx.se/docs/sslcerts.html

curl performs SSL certificate verification by default, using a "bundle"
 of Certificate Authority (CA) public keys (CA certs). The default
 bundle is named curl-ca-bundle.crt; you can specify an alternate file
 using the --cacert option.
If this HTTPS server uses a certificate signed by a CA represented in
 the bundle, the certificate verification probably failed due to a
 problem with the certificate (it might be expired, or the name might
 not match the domain name in the URL).
If you'd like to turn off curl's verification of the certificate, use
 the -k (or --insecure) option.
[#### ~]$ curl --tlsv1.2 https://tlstest.paypal.com/
curl: option --tlsv1.2: is unknown
curl: try 'curl --help' for more information

Making PayPal the default payment for App Store

Greetings,
My Paypal account has my four business bank accounts configured. My business is a charity (hofffoundation.org) which comes in four parts and people make donations. I am seeking to create one form/UI where a person would land (by clicking a link from our website, for example) where the user would be presented with a pull down menu of where they want to direct their donation.
The four donation 'buckets' are:
Hoff Foundation
Esther's Place
New Day Cafe
Queen, It's a New Day
Could you help me find an instruction on creating the pull-down menu, liked to the four different bank accounts? PayPal support has been less than supportive :)
Thank you!

Hi

I have had my cards hacked enough times to get really annoyed.
I receive balance sheets with card purchases in Rhode Island, or California, and I live in NC !

I paid with Paypal today, which means, my card was never exposed to direct hackers, I think.
Is that correct? VISA always refunds these fraudulent charges ( >$5,000, total, one time, over a few months)
Do hackers steal my paypal login?
Must I always do (card) online payments with paypal? I'm sick of cancelling cards for safety's sake
Thanks

Can you insert a module in another module?  I was requested to insert a PayPal donation option (which is a module) in the top banner of our website.  Is that possible?  I don't see a way to get that to work.  Can the PayPal donation function be set up as something other than a module so it would work?  Thanks.

I have a client who's selling tangible goods (ie: food products) online using WordPress & Woocommerce and who's based out of New Hampshire in the US, .. where there's no sales tax.  

Should I be setting up any kinds of special tax tables to ensure that customers are paying sales tax based on whatever US state they're having the merchandise shipped to? In other words, .. if someone from AZ purchases something from the NH business owner and has it shipped to them in AZ .. does the extra 8.1% sales tax apply in this situation?  Or not?

If the extra state specific sales tax DOES apply .. then what's the most efficient way for me to set that up within WooCommerce?

Thanks,
- Yvan

Hi everybody, I'm not able to finalize development of PayPal IPN Listener.
I'm integrating Paypal into a php/Mysql based website. IPN fails when I try to add a new record to Mysql table of orders.

I make one step back to explain the issue.
I succeded in creating (in the Sandbox environment) merchant express checkout button and fully configured IPN notifications.
Uploaded code to my php page once clicked the 'buy now' button, connection passes smoothly to Paypal Sandbox asking buyer to log in.
Once buyer is logged in it's possible to interact with Paypal and buy.
IPN listener successfully gets purchase parameters and report on a file (just for debugging) parameters and sql string to be used in my PDO.
Everything works just fine and on the backend of the merchant profile I see the purchase notification appearing in the IPN history and parameters are clearly showing that payment has been succesfully made.

Problem is given at PDO call.
PDO call to open connection and execute sql to add record fails.
PDO parameters are ok (same throughout the whole site), sql works fine (run directly to mysql web interface it does its dirty work).
Try-catch doesn't capture any exception and script to create log file (during PDO) doesn't run.

Any advice? Many thanks !

  • $payment_status="Completed"
  • test.txt produced
  • exception.txt and complete.txt not produced

I want to change the currency code, but it seems it won't react if i merely change it in the html. Is that the 'fault' of Paypal itself maybe?

btw: i can't change the donate button to one of the <form> type as the WP installation won't allow plugins
btw 2: i can't seem to generate any other kind of donate button in my own Paypal account

Hi Experts

Can anyone recommend an effective WP Plugin that can handle Subscription payments via Stripe and PayPal?
Most Shopping Carts Iv'e seen are too big for my needs.  I have a few products but monthly / annual service subscriptions is my primary focus.  It will need to be simple for the client to use.

Many thanks in advance

We calculate taxes based on shipping zip code. We get the shipping details of the payer after they authorize payment in the paypal window. I am trying to figure out how to update the payment after we calculate new total after getting the zip code to determine taxes. When I check the payment after execute, seems to not have received the update. Here is what I have:


payment: function(data, actions) {
              createPaymentRequestLineItems();
              calculateTotalToCharge();

              return actions.payment.create({
                payment: {
                  transactions: [
                    {
                      item_list: {
                        items: payment_request_line_items_paypal
                      },
                      amount: {
                        total: payment_request_total_paypal,
                        currency: 'USD',
                        details: {
                          subtotal: payment_request_total_paypal - total_tax - total_shipping,
                          tax: total_tax,
                          shipping: total_shipping
                        }
                      }

I'm developing a game on html5 with WebGl and I want to integrate PayPal service for digital goods in the game (coins, credits, boosters etc..). All examples that I have found in documentation regarding Express Checkout was connected with PayPal checkout.js lib that substitute a div for IFrame with PayPal button. I don't have ability to put such kind of button on my page because I draw everything on Canvas. I need ability to create dynamic requests and be notified when purchase transaction is done. So, is there a way to use PayPal on the client-side without standard IFrame solution?
