Your Patron's Experience with LibCal's Online Payments

Allowing your students, faculty, and community to pay right at the moment of registering for the event or booking the room is next-level service that also helps your staff. 

Springshare understands that it's important that your end users feel comfortable with the whole process. This is why LibCal's Billing feature is a payment system natively built into LibCal -- versus pushing your patrons out to some other external site when it's time to pay.
