WePay Services Discontinuation Notice

We have an important update for all our presenters using WePay. WePay has announced that it will be winding down its operations and will no longer be supported. As a result, we must transition to new payment gateways to ensure uninterrupted service before September 29, 2024.

What This Means for You?

After September 29, 2024, WePay will no longer process payments on our platform. To maintain seamless payment processing, all presenters are required to switch to an alternative payment gateway before this date.

Explore Your Options

We support 14+ payment gateways which you can consider for your transition. Some popular alternatives include:

  • Stripe
  • PayPal
  • Square
  • Authorize.Net
  • Braintree, etc.

What is the Best Option for You?

Choosing the right payment gateway depends on your specific needs and preferences. Here are some key factors to consider when making your decision:

  • Transaction Fees: Compare the fees associated with each gateway to find the most cost-effective option.
  • Ease of Integration: Look for a gateway that offers a straightforward setup process and integrates well with your existing systems.
  • Supported Payment Methods: Ensure the gateway supports the payment methods your customers prefer.
  • Customer Support: Consider the quality and availability of customer support provided by each gateway.

Our Recommendation

While you have several options, we highly recommend Stripe for its ease of use and robust features. Stripe is an excellent alternative that can match the functionality you enjoyed with WePay. For guidance on integrating Stripe, click here to learn How to Add Stripe as a Payment Gateway.

However, you are free to choose any gateway that fits your needs best or get in touch if there is another payment gateway you would like us to look into.
