The Acteva A3 Event Management and the Acteva Class Management Software (Acteva CMS) applications now support the use of PayPal. Acteva clients in the United States, Canada, and the U.K. can now use PayPal Payflow Pro and PayPal Payments Pro to collect and manage their online payments for all events and class registrations within the Acteva application. Acteva clients in all countries can also opt to use PayPal's Express Checkout, which lets customers pay with all major credit cards or PayPal.
"For over 13 years Acteva has been providing its US-based clients online payment services through its Cloud-based event registration and payment management platform. Now, with more organizations wanting a global payment solution and for those Acteva users based in other countries, Acteva has expanded its support of PayPal products for clients needing to manage their own payments. PayPal offers our clients very appealing options for processing major credits cards, as well as payments from a customer's PayPal account. This is great news for our clients and their customers alike because PayPal is recognized and trusted worldwide as a leader in online payment processing." said Bill Briner, VP of Products and Services for Acteva. "With these new options, Acteva's clients can easily set up their Acteva accounts to use PayPal and conduct transactions worldwide in a safe and secure environment, along with instant payment processing."
Acteva partnered with PayPal to deliver a seamless online checkout solution, designed to meet its client's needs. Acteva offers the following solution(s):
PayPal Payments Pro – accept online credit card payments and convert more customers with PayPal Payments Pro. This all-in-one payment option offers a secure payment experience and an Internet Merchant Account from PayPal. Customers don't need a PayPal account to check out – they can pay by credit card or debit card without ever leaving the organization's website. Customers paying with PayPal pay securely on PayPal.com.
PayPal Express Checkout – for those organizations that already accept credit cards online, adding the PayPal Express Checkout button can help to decrease shopping cart abandonment and boost sales. When customers are paying with PayPal, they pay securely on PayPal.com.
PayPal Payflow Pro – For those companies that already have an Internet Merchant Account and simply need a payment gateway, Acteva offers PayPal Payflow Pro. Payflow Pro lets organizations process credit cards online using their own Internet Merchant Account.
Dave Ghosh, VP, Global Sales for Acteva, further emphasized the importance of flexibility that this association with PayPal has provided. "This is mutually beneficial solution for Acteva clients and their attendees. Event Organizers and Trainers now have an additional Merchant Account option to choose from. The PayPal brand interface is familiar, trusted, and recognized worldwide."
