How to create a paid webinar?

To use the Paid webinars option your account must have your billing information completed and have one of the subscription plans. AppSumo accounts can also use the Paid webinars option. 

Before creating webinar tickets, you must integrate your account with one of three popular payment gateways. The choices are:

How to create paid webinar tickets?

To create paid webinar tickets, go to the "Paid Webinars" tab. In this view, you can choose the ticket template you have used so far or create new ones. If you create new tickets, set their price, decide if they should have a quantity limit. It is also important to determine when the platform will require payment.

An option not to allow registration without a ticket. 

When enabling paid tickets, you have the option to enforce a ticket purchase before the registration takes place. By default, it is set to OFF. However, you can set it to ON which means you do not allow registration without a ticket.

After successful configuration and creation of the token, a summary of the most important information will be displayed.

By clicking on the "manage them" button, you will have the opportunity to take a closer look at the created tokens, as well as select one of four options – edit, download, token list, delete. 

Note also that the purchase form adjusts its colors to match the registration form if you use Page Templates.

Now let's look at the Paid webinars option from the attendee's point of view. 

After entering the link leading to the event – a mini form will appear to the eyes of the participant asking to enter a token.  


The green "Buy token" button allows you to start the process of buying a token (ticket to the event). After clicking on it, the user will have to complete the basic data and enter the payment method. In addition, the user will be asked to read and accept the Terms of Service.
