Permission Required: Platform Admin
In order to sell tickets via Localist Register, a Stripe or Authorize.net payout account must first be added to the platform via Platform Settings. Without a payout account, you will only be able to offer free registration or spot reservation until a payout account is added. Because this requires access to the Platform Settings, Platform Admin access is required to add a payout account.
- Heads-Up -
Register is PCI-DSS 3.2 Level 1 compliant and utilizes Stripe and Authorize.net payment processing systems
1) Open the Admin Dash and navigate to Settings > Platform Settings
2) Select the Register tab
3) Under Payout Accounts, select either a Personal or Shared Payout account by selecting the corresponding dropdown and either Stripe or Authorize.net
4) Make sure to clearly label account names to keep things organized
- Heads-Up -
Adding Personal Payout Account is not allowed by default. You must first check the Allow Personal Payout Accounts box found above the Payout Accounts List and Save Changes. Once your changes are saved, you can proceed with adding a Personal account.
If this is not checked, you will only be allowed to add Shared Payout Accounts.
When selecting Stripe
After clicking Stripe, you will leave the Localist Admin Dash to complete your setup via Stripe's dashboard. Click the link on the left side of the page to return to the Localist Admin Dash.
When selecting Authorize.net
You can complete your Authorize.net setup within the Localist Admin Dash. You'll need your Authorize.net API Login ID and Transaction Key, which can be found in your Authorize.net Merchant Interface.
Once a Payout Account is added, it will be shown in the Admin Dash along with any other added accounts. Platform Admins will not be able to access other Payout Accounts they did not setup.
Adding a Payout Account to a Live Event
The Payout Account details can be added from the Admin Add Event Form on the Tickets & Registration tab at the top of the form:
Once on the Tickets & Registration tab, you can scroll down to Event Registration Settings to find the Payout Account dropdown. Admins will only see the accounts they've previously setup.
If you are planning on using Stripe’s test feature you will need to do this in the Staging Environment. Since the Staging Environment is linked up with Stripe’s ‘test mode’, you can use a test card (no money will transfer). Your production platform is synced with Stripe’s ‘live mode’, which means you will have to use a real card, make a purchase, and then refund the money to your account in order to test any transactions.
At this time, Authorize.net can only be configured to the Production side of your Localist Platform. When adding the account, make sure the Authorize.net Gateway is set to Sandbox. Then, save changes.
