Using the DCYE payment gateway

So you have an event and you want to charge a fee to attend your event, but you don’t have a payment gateway. You’re in luck! We do, and you can use it whenever you like with very little effort on your part.

Before I explain how to set-up the DotCom Your Event® (DCYE) payment gateway, there’s a few things to know:

  • We offer our payment gateway in either US$ or CAN$
  • The payment gateway accepts Visa, AMEX and MasterCard
  • The fee to use our DCYE payment gateway is 5% per transaction. So, if you charge a $100.00 fee on your registration form, we retain $5.00. Why do we charge 5%?
    • to cover the merchant fees associated with Visa, AMEX and MasterCard
    • to cover gateway administration costs and banking fees
    • to cover the administration of the payments, chargebacks and refunds on your behalf
  • Any Event Wizard® user can use the DCYE payment gateway
  • How do you receive your money?
    • At the end of your event click the ‘reconcile’ button in your account. We will contact you after that to begin the payout process so you can get your money
    • Need to pay for venues, catering, go-go dancers (we don’t judge)? During a live event you can invoice us for up to 80% of the funds received to date. To do this send us a support ticket and we’ll contact you to begin the process.

Now that you know all the details, let’s go over how to add the payment gateway to your event.

First, login into your account and navigate the Edit your payment options and details section of your edit menu.


Once you are in this section you will see a dropdown box on the right side under Online Payment Options. Click that dropdown and choose the correct currency:


Once you’ve chosen your currency, you will then want to fill out all of the Invoicer Information so registrants know you are billing them under the DCYE payment gateway.

The last thing you’ll need to decide is what happens after a registrant clicks Submit on your form. You can set-up Force Payment or Direct Payment so your form behaves differently based on your requirements.

Once you’ve chosen your preferred settings click Save and you’ll now be set up to take registration fees.

If you have any questions, post to the comments or send us a support ticket.
