Payment Methods

Payment Methods are determined in three different places: your Payment Gateway, any Custom Payment Methods you set, and standard options provided by Brushfire in each specific event, no matter what.

Payment Gateway Payment Methods

In your Payment Gateway's dashboard, you can determine which payment methods are turned on or off. Whatever you turn on, will be automatically made available in your Brushfire Account. 

In Brushfire, after connecting to a Payment Gateway, you can view and edit your Payment Methods. Go to the Payment Gateway tab on your Sidebar and then select the Edit Pencil icon to get to the page to see the list of Payment Methods. You can set these to Yes or No to determine if they are options for each of your events in Brushfire. In a Square Payment Gateway, for example, it looks like this:

As shown, payment methods available for our Square customers are: 

What is turned on under Payment Methods will determine what shows up as options in each event you create. At this time, Gift Cards, Bank Accounts, Afterpay, and CashApp are not offered with Stripe but will be soon. 

Custom Payment Methods

Any payment methods unique to your organization or situation can be created in the Payment Methods tab also found on the left Sidebar of your Organization Sidebar. Learn more about how to create custom payment methods here.

Payment Methods per Event

Every new event created in Brushfire automatically comes with the following set of payment methods: cash, check, consignment, exchange, and import. You can not edit or delete these. 

Display of Payment Methods

This is how all three types will display in each Event Configuration:

  1. Payment Methods determined from the Payment Gateway.
  2. Payment Methods that come standard in every Brushfire Event (determined by BF, not the customer).
  3. Payment Methods created as Custom options from the Payment Method tab.

For each event, this is also where you determine which will be options only for Event Admins and/or Attendees (Internet) as noted on the right.
