GameDay now offers Participants, Organisations and Event organisers more payment options than ever before. In addition to our current payment options; participants will now also be able to pay conveniently with Apple Pay and Google Pay via all supported currencies.
To complement these new payment options, participants & members registering and paying online will also be able to vault (save) their preferred PayPal account or credit/debit card for future use. We have also introduced additional card verification for fraud protection along with enhancing the checkout experience when selecting PayPal as a payment method.
All these enhancements will automatically be enabled for every organisation at no additional cost.
This now means participants and members will have greater flexibility in how they choose to pay via GameDay which will now offer PayPal, Credit Card, Debit Card, Openpay and now Apple Pay and Google Pay.

Credit Card Verification
After registering, I have had a member say that a $1.00 transaction come out of their account and they are unsure what it is for?
Our payment gateway verifies a new credit card by running either a $0 or $1 authorisation and then automatically voiding it. For most processors and card brands, transactions are initially tried with a $0 authorisation. If $0 authorisations are not supported, a $1 authorisation will be performed automatically.
In any instance where a $1.00 authorisation returns a successful result, we immediately follow up with an automatic void request to ensure that the transaction does not settle and that it disappears from the cardholder's statement as soon as possible.
Note: Some banks don't recognise void requests immediately. It's possible that after the void is issued, your customer will still see the pending charge. If this happens, have your customer call their bank; the bank should be able to see the void request and update your customer's bank statement accordingly.
