Was easy to get set up and make a test order using the Paypal sandbox. I don’t know why this plugin isn’t more popular.

I wasn’t happy with the high fees at Eventbright, so I installed Paypal Events on my Wordpress site. I just used it for my first event and it worked beautifully. The developers were really helpful even though I was using the free version. Will buy the full version now…
