I am looking for a simple (and secure) way to accept payment for event registration.

I am managing a Wordpress website for a organization that hosts events throughout the year. A handful of these events include online registration, which is currently completely outsourced to a third-party site.

I would like to allow registration payment to be submitted through our site. We currently incorporate contact forms using Gravity Forms[gravityforms.com ], and I would be interested in a payment solution that could be integrated with this. Unfortunately, the PayPal Pro Add-On for this is still beta. For our current needs, most ecommerce solutions seem to include a lot of unnecessary features.

Also, the organization uses Quickbooks, so solutions that can integrate with Intuit Merchant Account for Web Stores [payments.intuit.com ] would also be useful to consider.

I am familiar with HTML/PHP/CSS/Javascript and Wordpress (Our site uses my own custom WP template), but I am not a programming expert and this would be my first time incorporating ecommerce. Any suggestion/resources or thoughts on security would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Have you looked at Events Planner Pro (commercial product)? Might do what you want. I'm using it for another project but I can't speak to how well or if it will work with Intuit's gateway or not.

Thanks for the quick reply! I will take a look at this.

I currently have a custom posts type set up for events, so I am hesitant to overhaul and set up an entirely new event management system. Still, there may be some added benefits besides registration that are worth considering.
