Learn about the different payment processing options.

Updated over a week ago

There are a few different payment gateways that can affect how your ticket buyers will pay for their purchase and/or how you will receive your ticket sales. By default, all AUD, USD and NZD events will be managed by the Humanitix payment processing system. Read on to see what options work for you.

To change or add your payment options:

  1. Select your event via the events tab on the top menu bar

  2. Click payments and fees > gateways


Humanitix payments

Primary gateway

Available for events running in AUD, NZD and USD currencies only.
Events in all other currencies will need to integrate Stripe. Read below for more information.

The easiest and most affordable option for you.

Payment methods via Humanitix payments

*PayPal Pay in 4 is not available on Humanitix

  • Event payouts are automatically made within 5 business days after the event’s completion date to your nominated bank account.

  • Payment processing fees and booking fees are all inclusive, and by default, passed onto the ticket buyer

  • No extra transfer fees

  • Process refunds easily through the Humanitix platform at any time, as long as the event has not been paid out.

Stripe

Primary gateway

Need funds before the event?


Stripe is a global leader in payment processing allowing event hosts of all sizes to accept ticket sales straight into their Stripe account or bank account.

Stripe replaces the Humanitix payment gateway. All ticket sales go directly into your Stripe account and are not managed by Humanitix

Setup takes less than 5 minutes and allows you to access ticketing revenue prior to your event to help with event cash flow and expenditure. With our native integration, you are only a few clicks away from seeing your ticket sales streaming in.

  • Receive ticket sales as they roll in directly into your bank account* or choose from a range of payout schedules that suit your needs. Find out more about Stripes payout details here

  • Process refunds through Humanitix. Note: Stripe’s fees are non-refundable

  • As a third party, Stripe charges additional fees for its services. These fees are deducted from your revenues before Stripe settles the payout into your account.

    • Stripe's fees vary by currency. Head to https://stripe.com/ and navigate to their pricing page for their latest fee structures

Afterpay

Additional gateway

An easy buy now, pay later solution available at a competitive rate 💰

Afterpay can be easily enabled for your event to offer buyers who don’t currently have the cash on hand the chance to experience what you have to offer!

Payments made via Afterpay are handled by the Humanitix Payment Gateway. They will NOT be credited to a connected Stripe account.

  • Ticket buyers can make a free Afterpay account or use their existing account

  • Tickets can be purchased and paid for over a 6-week plan, paying no interest - or fees if payments are made on time. See more about how Afterpay works here

  • Afterpay default spending limits start at around $500 and can be increased through responsible spending on their platform

  • You receive the full ticket sales as per our Humanitix payment processing timelines (see above).

To enable Afterpay for your event:

  1. Manage your event

  2. Navigate to payments and fees > gateways on the left-hand menu bar

Do I need an Afterpay account?
No! With our integration, you do not need to register for an Afterpay account yourself.

I’ve enabled Stripe. Will Afterpay ticket sales go into my Stripe account?
No. Ticket sales through Afterpay do not go through your Stripe account and are settled separately and paid out at the end of the event completion date. You must nominate a bank account on your Humanitix event to receive these funds.

Where can Afterpay be used?

Afterpay is available for use in Australia, New Zealand and the United States.

What fees are involved?

Afterpay charges a fee for all orders processed using the Afterpay gateway. This fee is debited from your ticket sale before being paid out from Humanitix. See relevant fees below:

  • AUD events: 3.5%

  • NZD events: 5%

  • USD events: 5%

The Afterpay fee does not affect orders transacted otherwise (such as normal credit card transactions) and has to be absorbed at all times. This means you cannot customise for the Afterpay fee to be passed on the same way you can with your event fee setting.


ZipPay

Additional gateway

Zip now, pay later. Offer easy payment plans to your attendees


ZipPay is an easy-to-use credit card facility that buyers can use to register for your event and make scheduled payments over time. These payments are managed between the attendee and ZipPay directly, meaning less work for you!

Payments made via Afterpay are handled by the Humanitix Payment Gateway. They will NOT be credited to a connected Stripe account.

  • Buyers register for a free ZipPay account with a $1000 line of credit

  • ZipPay appears as an alternative payment option during checkout. Attendees are prompted to log into their account to finalise the transaction.

  • Buyers make regular payments on their own terms to their ZipPay account.
    See more on how ZipPay works here

  • You receive the full ticket sale upfront as per our Humanitix payment processing timelines (see above).

To enable ZipPay for your event:

  1. Manage your event

  2. Navigate to payments and fees > gateways on the left-hand menu bar

  3. Click setup on the ZipPay gateway


Do I need a ZipPay account?
No! With our integration, you do not need to register for a ZipPay account yourself.

I’ve enabled Stripe. Will ZipPay ticket sales go into my Stripe account?
No. Ticket sales through ZipPay do not go through your Stripe account and are settled separately and are paid out at the end of the event completion date. You will need to nominate a bank account on your Humanitix event to receive these funds.

Where can Zip be used?

We currently have Zip available in Australia and New Zealand - USA coming soon!

What fees are involved?
Zip charges a fee for all orders processed using the Zip gateway. This fee is debited from your ticket sale before paid out to you from Humanitix. See relevant fees below:

  • AUD events: 3%

  • NZD events: 4%

The Zip fee does not affect orders transacted otherwise (such as normal credit card transactions) and has to be absorbed at all times. This means you cannot customise for the Zip fee to be passed on the same way you can with your event fee setting.


Invoicing

Additional gateway

Offer an alternative to online (credit card) payments. The perfect solution for businesses and schools.
