Sell tickets on your event website using Square payment gateway

Less than 5 percent of the people have PayPal account, while more than 95 percent have credit cards. If your event website permits only PayPal, it will mean that most attendees will be unable to pay. In such a case the creation of your event website was pointless. Therefore, a credit card processor is necessary to facilitate all payments and not just PayPal.


We recommend Square payment gateway because it charges lower transaction fee (2.75% on card swipe), is very user-friendly, and has option to transfer money to your bank account instantly.

Also, since we already have an integration built for Square, just like we have integration for Stripe, PayPal, Cybersource and other payment gateways, it takes only a few minutes to set up your payments form.

Square is currently available in United States only.

The sign-up process takes only a few minutes. You just need a bank account, SSN Number and a physical business address in US to open a Square account.

Once activated, you simply have to enter the provided credentials into Dryfta which will allow you to accept Credit Card payments on your Dryfta-powered event website. All your collected payments will be directly transferred to your bank account.

Dryfta Event CRM: Merge Duplicate Contacts & Associated Data

At times, attendees register twice using different email addresses for various reasons. For example, sometimes they forgot the password and instead of requesting a new password, they would simply create a new account. Or, if a subordinate has created an account for a user, and has not notified about the same, the user would unknowingly register again to create an account. There’re many other scenarios where duplicate accounts are created with each account holding some important information about the user. So, normally, the organizer would manually copy each piece of information from one account to another and then discard one of the accounts. This, however, results in lost time. Lots of lost time.

This is the fastest possible method to calculate your return on investment. Please note that this, however, does not include other more important event attributes viz. leads generated, returning attendees, meetings requested, marketing campaigns, attendee engagement, customer satisfaction, Press mentions, social network influence etc.
