Merged idea

This idea has been merged into another idea. To comment or vote on this idea, please visit CAL-I-378 Can you make it possible to use Stripe Merchant facility?.

Accept Merchant Services in addition to PayPal for Ticketing beta Merged

Would prefer to use Heartland WP Secure Submit plugin to accept credit cards. PayPal seems to make the payment process into more of a push everyone to enroll in PayPal instead of checkout and pay.  Lots of people use authorize.net also.

    how to vote?

    doesn't seem to make sense as it is, why force payment to Timely in a limited range of currencies and release to a separate Paypal account rather than directly to client Paypal account?   Also if eg wooCommerce is already enabled on the site as is quite common [and free], it would be better to check out through existing wooCommerce setup...

    ...  problem is exacerbated on a China site since Chinese currency is required but not going to be an option for ticket payment via Timely

    Jonathan, payment goes directly to client's PayPal account, not through Time.ly, and we now cover for a wide range of currencies.

    If it is direct to the client's Paypal account then why doesn't it take the client's currency rather than a list of currencies selected by the plugin?

    I'm probably missing something on the thinking behind this module..  the rest of the software is so nicely designed I'm sure there must be some rationale behind the design ticketing module that I've so far been unable to find.

    Ticket seller chooses in his admin dash the currency that should be displayed on the calendar for the ticket, out of the wide range we made available (accepted by paypal). 

    When ticket buyer purchases a ticket Paypal will manage per account's set-up if transaction should be converted to a specific currency in buyer's/seller's account or not (it's on Paypal side) BOTH in the cases of buyer and seller.

    I concur for AUTHORIZE.NET as a common / widely respected standard.

    Many people would prefer to use Authorize.net.  PayPal is good, but it does not have the functionality of Authorize.net.
