Today we are very excited to announce the latest addition to the Planning Center family of applications: Planning Center Registrations, the best way for your church to put your events online, accept sign-ups and payments, and rein in the chaos of the details.
When you use PCO Registrations for your events, your church will look good. People registering for your event will find the process is easy, fun, and of course secure. We believe that a great product builds trust between your church and the person registering for your event, and we've put tons of effort into making Registrations as streamlined and beautiful as possible.
Accepting credit card payments can be complicated and expensive. High monthly fees, per-transaction fees and terrible user experiences are the norm for the industry. Fortunately it doesn't have to be that way anymore. We've been able to negotiate a fantastic deal with Stripe for all of our customers. Stripe will charge our customers just 2.3% + $0.30 per transaction (compare that with 2.9% you get most everywhere else!) with absolutely no monthly fees, no setup fees, no PCI compliance fees, no cancellation fees, and no contract to sign. And of course we're passing that rate along to our churches with no markup.
This is just the beginning for PCO Registrations. We've got a dedicated team of incredibly talented developers and designers who are committed to the product and our customers. Lots of great features and improvements are on the horizon for 2015 and beyond.
More to come
There's so much more to tell you about, but we can't share it all just yet! :) Look for PCO Registrations to launch in early 2015. If you'd like to get notified by email when we're ready to accept signups, use the form below.
We really can't wait to get this in your hands and make your lives easier. Thanks for your support!
So many people have shown lots of excitement for Registrations already. Thank you! We've had lots of questions about pricing and now we're ready to answer them.
All plans will allow for an unlimited number of events and are only differentiated on the maximum number of attendees per event.
5 attendees per event - Free
15 attendees per event - $14/mo
50 attendees per event - $29/mo
150 attendees per event - $49/mo
500 attendees per event - $99/mo
2,000 attendees per event - $149/mo
5,000 attendees per event - $199/mo
We like to make sure our billing to our customers is consistent. Nobody wants to be surprised by a big bill at the end of the month because their event was a success! That's why you won't see any per-attendee or percentage based pricing here. And of course there's no funny business like contracts to sign or cancelation fees. If you only need Registrations for a couple events each year you can change your plan to fit your current needs at any time.
