CERVIS enables you to offer "Paid" event types so volunteers or participants must pay using a credit card prior to completing their event registration. There is a $200 annual fee to use Paid events in your CERVIS system. To do so, please contact CERVIS Customer Support.
Once Paid event types have been enabled for your account, you must set-up and configure your PayPal Business account as well as your CERVIS account so they will communicate the correct payment and registration information to each other. Please follow the steps below to set up your PayPal Business account.
