For those of you who don’t know, Smart Events is created by the same team who run PlanningCenterOnline.com, the premiere online church worship service planner. The first integration we’re announcing this week is between Smart Events and Planning Center! First, link your Smart Events account with your Planning Center account on the settings page in Smart Events. Then link items from any Event Schedule to specific Plans in Planning Center. Once a Smart Events schedule item is linked with a Planning Center plan, you can click the new Planning Center button to see an overview of that plan with a link to go right to the plan. Planning Center’s powerful program organization features take Smart Events schedules to a brand new level.
Stripe.com is a great new way to accept payments from Smart Events. It’s by far the easiest way to get started receiving payments, and the best part is that Stripe only charges you a fee of 2.9% + 30¢ per successful charge. Stripe has no setup fees, no monthly fees, no minimum charges, no validation fees, and no card storage fees. There’s also no charge for failed payments! It only takes a couple of minutes to get started with a Stripe.com account, so if you are looking for an affordable solution with great reporting features, check it out by signing up for your account at Stripe.com and then choosing it as your payment gateway in Smart Events.
We hope these integrations help make Smart Events an even more powerful way for you to plan your events in 2012 and beyond!
