Configure paid webinar


The paid webinars option is available for live and automated webinars that were created after February 14, 2018. For on demand webinars it’s available for broadcasts created after November 3, 2018.

After connecting a Mollie account to your WebinarGeek account you can set a price for each webinar. That price can be anything between 1 and 1000 and should be paid before people are able to view the webinar.

 

Set amount

Create a new live or automated webinar. Next, go to "Registration" and click on "Payment".

Activate Payments by clicking on the switch. Enter an amount between 1 and 1000 that you’d like to receive for each participant.

 

Add contact details

Next, add your contact details. These are required for payment correspondance with participants.

An email address is required. Optionally, you can also add a phone number.

This contact information will be displayed during the payment process.

 

Automated and live webinars settings

Go to your webinar editor and click on ‘Registration’ > ‘Payment’.

Preventing someone from logging in twice

When you let your viewers pay for watching the webinar, you obviously want to avoid someone else to use the same link again. You can very easily stop this by enabling the option "Don’t allow viewers to watch with two devices live at the same time".

This option works as follows: when a paying viewer tries to view the webinar using his/her watch link, that person will be allowed in. If someone else also tries to watch using the same link, that person will see an error notification on their screen.

So only one person at the same time can watch for each unique link. If a viewer would like to watch the remainder of the webinar on another device this is possible, but the screen for the original device should be closed first.

Set individual broadcast price

You can configure your broadcasts so viewers should pay for each connected webinar and broadcast. Click on "Viewers should pay the amount for each broadcast of this webinar individually" to activate this.


On demand webinar settings

The option to allow paid webinars is only available for on demand webinars that have been created after November 3, 2018. Please don’t copy a webinar created before that date either.

Go to your webinar editor and click on ‘Registration’ > ‘Payment’.

Maximum watchtime

Prevent multiple people from viewing the on demand webinar with a single payment. Set a maximum watchtime for your on demand webinar.

We recommend a watchtime of the total recording length + 25%. This allows someone to scroll back the recording, but can’t watch it more than once.

Add a checkmark at ‘Set a maximum on watchtime for each viewer' and choose a maximum amount of minutes.


Payment confirmation for each email

As soon as you enabled "Payments" for a webinar, an extra email is created in that webinar. This so-called payment confirmation is added as an extra confirmation email.

You have the option to edit this email under "Emails" when editing your webinar in the well-known WebinarGeek editor mode.

This email is automatically broadcasted when a participant completed a payment.

TIP: Add information about the required payment to the standard confirmation email. For example, mention that it’s not possible to view the webinar without having completed a payment.

 

PLEASE NOTE: A payment for a webinar also gives the viewer permission to watch the replay.


Connected webinars

With WebinarGeek it’s possible to connect webinars. This means a participant can register for multiple webinars at the same time on a single registration page.

The payment process starts after registration, which gives the participant access to all connected webinars in the connected series.

Want people to make payments for individual broadcasts? Add a checkmark to "Viewers should pay the amount for each broadcast of this webinar individually". Do this when editing/creating your webinar at 'Registration' > 'Payments' > 'Settings'.

 

Webinar with multiple broadcasts

You can add multiple broadcasts to a webinar. That way you can offer the same webinar on different dates and times. A participant can choose to watch the broadcast in their own time this way.

For a paid webinar the participant will get access to all broadcasts after payment. This means they can subscribe for another broadcast without having to pay again.

Want people to pay for each individual broadcast? Add a checkmark to "Viewers should pay the amount for each broadcast of this webinar individually". Do this when editing/creating your webinar at 'Registration' > 'Payments' > 'Settings'.
