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.

Making PayPal the default payment for App Store

How do I do this on an iPhone 7?

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
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?

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

Documentation says that setting optional PayPal account activated in the website preferences will let my clients pay with their credit cards without requiring them to open a PayPal account

 my account has those settings, it is a standard account but it tries to force the use to open a PayPal account. the PayPal screen when checking out is supposed to say pay with credit card but it says open a PayPal account.

 Am I  my doing something wrong? the account is in Spanish and the documentation is also in Spanish thank you
I have a busines PayPal account I charge my products with it.

I have seen PayPal optionPayment where the client chooses to pay wtih PayPal via a credit card directrly,  He is not required toto have or  open a PayPal account

How canI do this?
I have a 2 paypal accounts one personal the other is business. In my personal PayPal account. There is an option

Web site preferences Send your clients to my website after a payment

I have made extensive programming to use this option

In my business account at PayPal nobody seems to understand that I need the same functionality in my business account

So in my business account I need clients to be sent to my website to update my database (for example)

Does anyone know how to go about this in the business account?

We are using paypal hosted buttons (have been for a long time).

We had to make some changes, now things don't work. Of course Paypal takes their money.

We specify the return location on our site where we want paypal to go back to when it's finished.

The code for the hosted button is:
	<form action="" method="post" target="_top">
<input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="_s-xclick">
<input type="hidden" name="hosted_button_id" value="3FPLZZ79QQXRC">
<input type="image" src="" border="0" name="submit" alt="PayPal - The safer, easier way to pay online!">
<input type="hidden" name="currency_code" value="USD">
<input type="hidden" name="return" value="">
<img alt="" border="0" src="" width="1" height="1">

Open in new window

Note the form variable named return. The return goes to ppreturn.php but NONE of the query string variables are passed (ft, ag, tp & uid). Our site is now https (rather than http as coded in the form), could that make it fail? I am doubtful as it does go to ppreturn.php.

Does paypal still support this mechanism (using a variable called "return" to specify where to go back to)?
I've got to create a registration form on a website that has a paypal button.  I have no idea how to go about doing this since I've never done it before.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

So I signed up my bank account so I can purchase something online because I lost my card. As soon I made the purchase, I go to pull out my account just to be secure, however, my purchase is "preapproved". The preapproved is just sitting there and no complete purchases were made. Just wondering how long it takes for the payment to be finished so I can pull out my bank account.
Let's say I make a non-profit website. That means it has no commercial interests.
I red that the executives can make a nominal fee. That's good enough for me. What, less than $5,000 / month?

I only need money for food and TV, internet/cable/power/ Zergling rushes

In my winforms .NET app I have a webbrowser control that I provide the code Paypal gave me for the button to have them make a purchase. Everything is fine until after they click on the button and it then informs them their "browser" is out of date and won't proceed. What can I do to this string to get them to PayPal site in this control?

I have a book on PDF which I expect to be about 500 MB in size. Far too big to email to the buyer, after purchase via PayPal. I will sell the PDF on my WordPress website.

Can I sell a PDF to an iPhone user?

I have no interest in diving back into being an Apple Developer at the moment, but will do so if people show an interest in my book. But, with my book selling on my website, are buyers forced to download the PDF on their PC's? And does this mean they must use Dropbox (for example) as a way to read the book on their iPhones?

I am curious.
