Integrating PayPal For Accepting Payments
PayPal is a global payment gateway that supports online money transfers and functions as a highly secure platform for many businesses worldwide. Many event attendees prefer using it for their ticket booking, making it one of our preferred transaction portals. When integrated with Yapsody, it allows you to accept payment via major credit services like Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express online.
