Process refunds from your Dryfta event dashboard

Until now, when processing refund, the Dryfta platform was primarily acting as a bookkeeper by recording the refund amount in the system. However it didnt actually process the refund. To process the refund, our event organizers have had to log in to their Stripe dashboard and manually process the refund.

We’re changing that. Admin users can now process refunds right from their Dryfta dashboard.


The refund will be automatically processed if Stripe payment gateway was selected while this order was being placed. Admins have the option to make partial refunds. The refund amount does not include tax.

Also, if an order remains pending, the system will now tell you the reason about why the credit card failed or declined. It could be due to many reasons including wrong credit card number, expired credit card, declined by bank etc.

Let us know what you think of this upgrade and if this was something you were looking for.

Sell tickets on your event website using Stripe 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 Stripe’s credit card processor because it charges less per transaction fee, is very organizer-friendly, and because we already have an integration built inside Dryfta, for Stripe, just like we have integration for PayPal, Authorize and 2Checkout.

However, Stripe is only available in select few countries right now. So, if you operate out of a Non-Stripe country, here’s our suggestion:

If you or your acquaintance has a bank account and a physical business address in any of the following countries mentioned below, you can open a Stripe account and once activated, you will 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 in that country.
