Credit Card Processing can only be enabled in Events version 7 or newer, so if you are using an older version, our first step would be bringing your system to the latest version.

Note: For installed solutions you will also need to ensure that SSL certificates are installed and functioning on your server. All servers involved in credit card transactions must have SSL.
We do have SSL certificates on our servers. We are also PCI compliant.
We do not store any credit card information on our servers.
Our software simply passes the collected information to your gateway provider and we only saves the obtained authentication code that confirms the transaction's approval.
