If there is a cost associated with your event, you may have the option to pay online (via credit or debit card), offline (another method) or given a choice between the two (depending on your Event Organiser's settings).
The system may present you with various options to complete the online payment. If your Event Organiser has integrated their payment gateway with Stripe, you will see the option to Pay by card, where you can enter your card details.
If your Event Organiser has integrated their account with Paypal, you will be prompted to either sign into your PayPal account or checkout as a guest.
💡 Please note: Bookwhen has removed the option to save your details for future use.

Booking on a mobile device
Booking on your mobile phone is the same process as your desktop, with the layout scaled to fit your screen. See here.
💡 Please note: Bookwhen will never ask you for an 'account name', 'sector', or 'timezone' to complete a booking. If asked, you have strayed onto the Bookwhen software page (for Event Organisers) and should navigate to the booking link (see finding your event).
