Cards and Klarna
Simplify both for you and your customers and let Cup Manager and our supplier Stripe provide your payment solution.
After just a few keystrokes and a call to us, you can activate Cup Manager's payment solution. For several years, we have been using Stripe as a supplier of both card payments and now also an integration with Klarna.
This is our recommended way to manage payments because it so effectively reduces all the time you spend managing your finances. Similarly, the consequential problems that can arise from teams not paying on time or not showing up at all to the tournament. If the bad luck arrives, it is also very easy to refund money. For you as an organizer, it costs the same and works in the same way regardless of whether the customer has used cards or Klarna.

Features and overview
Often a leader receives compensation from his association for at least the law reporting fee. With Klarna, the leader can wait 14 days to pay while the tournament receives a confirmed payment and all money directly to their Stripe account. This means that no one has to lie out with money, but the leader can quietly wait for his compensation from the association before paying.
The second payments are made, they are linked to their notification in Cup Manager. You can always be absolutely sure when all approved teams have paid their registration fee. This allows you to be sure that the registrations have not been made by mistake or by someone who does not intend to come to the tournament.
Unlike other payment methods, your customers receive direct feedback on their payments both in their team account and via email. This means that you no longer have to answer questions about bank payments that have not yet been registered or have not yet arrived at your bank account. It also makes it much easier to manage deadlines on e.g. discounts. When there are only limited seats for one class, it is also easy to have a first come, first served, mean the first paid one and thus avoid all administration afterwards. Together with our reserve list function, you get a complete solution for registering teams.
Refunds are as simple as clicking on the payment inside the Cup Manager and then choosing how much of the payment to refund. After that, everything is automatically managed by Cup Manager and our supplier Stripe, who make sure that money gets back to the right card and bank account within a few days.
For you as an organizer, it makes no difference if you received the payment via the payment place or klarna, you handle it in the same way inside the Cup Manager.
With an integrated payment solution, you avoid virtually all the work you have previously put into collecting and managing payments. All connectors are automatic and managed in real time. No waiting times for money to be moved from one bank to another. In the system there are easy exports of ready-made documents you can use directly in your accounting.
Use card payment and Klarna
Do like most of our tournaments
Most of our tournaments currently use card payments and Klarna to collect their registration fees. In addition, the vast majority of them have chosen not to have an alternative way of receiving payments (although individual exceptions can always be made). It simplifies their administration of enrolled teams when they can be 100% sure that those teams have already paid as soon as they sign up.
Klarna and cards are the preferred payment methods in Sweden in 2019.
For e-commerce, Swedes state that 33% prefer cards and 41% prefer invoice services (e.g. Klarna) when shopping. Both payment methods supported by Cup Manager are thus by a margin more popular than the remaining payment methods. Together with direct payments that are also supported through our integration with Klarna, 85% of all Swedes will find their preferred payment method when they sign up for your tournament.
