In event registrations, some people may want to secure their spot but cannot make immediate payments. They know they want to attend but need the flexibility to pay later when their finances allow. This article discusses how to enable guest registrations with deferred payment options, ensuring convenience for attendees facing temporary financial constraints.

There is no straightforward way to allow guests to register themselves for the event and choose to pay later.

Add the Guest from the Guest Manager.

Add the guest to the event via Guest Manager by Clicking the + icon as shown below ๐Ÿ‘‡

  • Follow the usual process of registering > Add the guest details, and select the relevant tickets. On the payment page, select the Collect payment later option ๐Ÿ‘‡
