Who is Corsizio for?
Corsizio was built to facilitate online registrations, payments, and feedback for any in-person and online group events or classes, which are neither at the event-centric or attendee-centric end of the spectrum.

- Corsizio is NOT intended for events that require event-centric features, such as large concerts, which rely on shopping cart features without the need for any attendee data.
- Corsizio is NOT intended for events that require attendee-centric features, such as school programs, which provide private events where attendees need to have their own accounts to view and register for the events and manage their own info, payments, and schedules.
Below are examples of individuals and businesses that would benefit from using Corsizio:
- Corporate, public, and private internal training workshops and sessions

Why should I use Corsizio for my events?
To collect registrations and payments for your events, you may use in-person or online registration and payment collection methods.
In-person or offline methods can create lots of administrative and unnecessary work given that there are automated ways to receive registrations and payments quickly, easily, and securely today. They can hinder proper record keeping and make it challenging to have comprehensive analytics and reporting. They can also be impractical for your attendees. This is where Corsizio helps to decrease the work and friction related to event registrations and payments while enhancing the overall experience for the event organizer and registrant.
Here at Corsizio, we strive to provide all of our customers with just the right tools and functionality to enable them to succeed in collecting online registrations, payments, and feedback for all of their educational events, including the following:
- We have the most competitive and optimized pricing in the industry with free usage and pay-per-use options.
- You get to manage your events and attendees efficiently within a modern, easy-to-use, secure, and scalable platform.
- Our fantastic customer support is available to all of our customers, regardless of their usage.
- We align our goals to match yours — help you keep your costs of accepting the most registrations for the lowest price possible — and grow with you.
How do I get my attendees to register using Corsizio?
As an instructor or event manager, you simply create an account with Corsizio and set up your event registration page. You can then share the registration link or embed the registration form on your website, social media, or anywhere else you like. Within minutes, you can start accepting online registrations and payments (if applicable) from your attendees. Attendees do not create their own accounts with Corsizio to register for your events.
Do my attendees need to create an account with Corsizio?
No, your attendees or students do not create an account with Corsizio to register for your events. When you set up an event, such as a class, course, or workshop, and have them register to it, the attendee is solely registering for that single event and not to Corsizio or its services as a whole. This provides attendees with an easy, seamless, and convenient registration experience without needing to manage yet another login and password.
Do you offer a free trial period?
Yes, every account starts with free usage and will only need to enable billing when it expects to go beyond the free usage limit of up to 50 registrations per month. This essentially gives you an indefinite free trial period. Whether you enable billing or not, you can use Corsizio anytime for free, as long as your total registrations stay within the low volume usage limit in any given month.
Can I get a demo of the platform?
Corsizio is focused on online registrations and payments for group events, classes, workshops, and similar in-person or virtual events. It operates as a self-serve platform and there are no traditional software demos, installations, or training. We provide all of our users with:
- Sample data in each new account, which you can experiment with and experience the platform and its functionality
- An extensive help docs library, which includes screenshots to provide you with previews of the interface
- Email support
If you need an efficient solution to accept and manage online registrations and payments for group classes, and in a very cost effective way, then try out Corsizio and use the sample data within the account to see if the platform is a good fit for you. You can create events and test out the registration process to evaluate the service fully. It is super easy to create an event, link to its public details page or embed its details card on your website, accept registrations and payments with automated email confirmation receipts, and view and manage all attendee registrations in one place.
It is free to create an account and explore all of its features. Everyone gets access to all the features on the platform, and low-volume usage is always free. We provide you with full ability to delete your account entirely at anytime too. There are no monthly pricing plans to subscribe to or any commitments or obligations.
Below are some helpful initial resources to see if Corsizio is a good fit for your needs:
How does enabled billing work?
When your total registration usage for a given month is within the low volume limit, up to 50 new registrations, then we do not bill you for that month regardless if you have enabled billing or not. Our free usage allows your account to accept up to 50 new registrations per month, but you can remove that limit and accept unlimited registrations at any time by enabling the pay-per-use billing for your account.
With enabled billing, registrations are billed a one-time fee of $0.10 (or the cost in your country) per registration on a pay-per-use basis (only once) at the end of the billing cycle. You are only billed when your total usage for the month goes above 50 new registrations.
- If you receive 43 new registrations in January, you do not get billed for any registrations at the end of that month.
- If you receive 71 new registrations in February, you get billed $7.10 for your registrations at the end of that month.
The billing currency is based on the payment card's associated country or region: USD, CAD, GBP, EUR, AUD, SGD, or MXN. The default billing currency is USD for all other countries or regions.
Learn more about how usage billing works.
What if my events are free, for charity, or not-for-profit?
You are welcome to use Corsizio for any such event needs and will not incur any charges for your registrations if you have low volume usage, as per our pricing. We aim to provide everyone equally with an ultra-low, highly discounted, pay-per-use, and cost-effective model for higher volume needs, while offering full access to all of our features, support, security, data storage, and service value.
What does it cost to accept online payments?
All online payments are subject to credit/debit card fees. When you accept online payments, we will facilitate the payment processing via Stripe (the payment processor) directly to your bank account, and these fees are deducted during each online payment transaction automatically. Corsizio charges a low and competitive flat $1 service fee for any new online payment transactions processed, and Stripe charges standard fees that vary by country (see below). You will not be billed for any portion of these fees separately.
Stripe is a leading online payment processing service, which currently charges an industry standard transaction fee of 2.9% + 30¢ for US and Canada, 1.4% + €0.25 for Europe, 1.4% + 20p for UK, 1.75% + 30¢ for Australia, and 3.4% + $0.50 for Singapore. See Stripe’s fees for other countries and view our list of accepted currencies for online payments.
Collecting online payments from your attendees allows you to conveniently receive your net funds, which get deposited directly into your bank account by Stripe. If you would like to minimize the costs associated with online payment processing fees, you can use our deposit feature to collect only a small amount from your customer online, to secure a commitment, and collect the remaining amount in your preferred offline method. For more tips, read our help article How to save on online payment service fees.
Can I pass on the registration or online payment fees to my attendees?
Yes, there are two main ways that you can pass any of the registration or payment fees to your attendees. The most obvious way is to increase the cost of your event price by your expected fee expense. You can see how to calculate your fees in our help article How to save on online payment service fees. Many attendees get put off by the idea of having to pay event registration fees and this allows you to bundle the cost as part of the event and minimize the risk of losing a registration. If you are okay with having your attendees see the fees separately, you can use our add-on feature and make it a mandatory part of their registration.
How will I receive my funds when accepting online payments?
Corsizio partners with and uses Stripe, a leading online payment processing service, to facilitate all online credit and debit card payment transactions. We know that your resources are valuable and having quick access to your money is a top priority. Therefore, unlike many other services, which may hold the funds until after the event has ended, Stripe will deposit your funds into your bank account on a 2 to 7-day rolling basis depending on your country. See Stripe’s document about receiving payouts and view our list of accepted currencies for online payments.
Why do you use Stripe as the online payment processor?
Stripe provides full compliance with the strictest PCI Level 1 certification, along with competitive industry standard transaction fees and no monthly or hidden fees. Whether it is for your billed registrations or for your customers’ online payments, credit or debit card data does not touch our servers, nor does it get stored on them for PCI compliance and security. Stripe currently supports businesses in many countries around the world; see the full list of supported countries for more information. You can instantly accept payments from around the world by having a bank account within any of the supported countries. We make it easy for you to integrate with Stripe via a single step from within Corsizio, whether you already have an existing account with Stripe or not.
Can I offer my attendees discounts or coupon codes?
Yes, you can create discount or promotion codes that can be distributed to your potential attendees during your event marketing on social networks, email newsletters, flyers, ads, and similar platforms to drive more registrations to your events. Coupons can either apply a dollar amount or a percentage off the price. You can even limit the number of coupon redemptions and add an expiry date. You can also enable and configure volume or bulk discounts for your event to encourage multiple registrations.
Can I create multiple price categories for an event?
Yes, Corsizio supports the configuration of multiple price categories for events. For example, if you require child, student, adult, or senior categories, you would configure them as such during the creation of your event registration page. You can create multiple price categories that are age-related, status-related, duration-related, and so on.
Can I have other users or team members manage data in my account?
Yes, you can have an unlimited number of users invited and added to your account. Users added can be given one of the following roles: admin, editor, facilitator, or viewer.
Are there any limits on the number of attendees or events I can have?
You can create an unlimited number of events; there are no limits. For registrations, our free low volume usage has a limit of up to 50 total registrations in a month. You can remove this limit when you enable pay-per-use billing for your account, which allows you to accept unlimited registrations. The full range of features is always available to you, regardless of free or billed usage.
Can I issue refunds to attendees?
First, refunds depend on your event refund policy. Second, they depend on whether you collected the payment offline or online. If you collected an offline payment, then you would refund your attendee the same way, offline, and record the refund amount on that attendee’s registration in Corsizio for proper record keeping.
If you collected an online payment via a credit or debit card, then you can quickly and easily issue a partial or full refund to an attendee, with no additional fees to you or them. Note that online payments are subject to Corsizio and Stripe’s service fees and when you issue a refund our flat $1 transaction fee will be refunded for full, not partial, refunds. Stripe does not refund its payment processing fees on the refunded transaction, given that the original transaction took place.
Can I integrate Corsizio with my website?
Yes, Corsizio allows users to embed various sized widgets and links quickly and easily on their website, or any other website including social networks. These widgets allow potential attendees to conveniently and securely register and pay online for your events, classes, courses, workshops, and similar in-person or virtual events.
Can Corsizio provide me with a web presence?
Yes, each account will have its own auto-generated portal page that aggregates and lists all of your current and upcoming events and makes them available online under a unique web address. Potential attendees will be able to filter using category, location, price, and other filters that you set up to help them find what they are looking for. This portal page will be public and searchable on major search engines. It is generated with SEO and mobile-friendly technology.
In addition, each event has its own page with a unique web address you can link to for your event details and registration form, which you can embed and share anywhere you need. Corsizio also provides you with embeddable widgets that you can use to promote your events on any website you manage.
How is Corsizio different from other online registration and payment services?
At Corsizio we firmly believe that the best results come from using the right tool for the right job. There are many online registration and payment services available to you today, but they do not all operate in the same way or offer the same features, value, pricing, or user experience and satisfaction. There are also different services for different types of events. For example, concerts and festivals require a different event registration and payment approach than courses and classes. The former events benefit from a ticketing service provider, which Corsizio is not. We specialize in educational events, which necessitate a certain degree of attendee data and record keeping. We are also an event-centric platform rather than an attendee-centric platform. This means that everything revolves around your events, and your attendees do not create their own accounts or manage their own events.
Corsizio uses leading-edge technology and provides a modern, attractive, easy-to-use service and user interface. It is an ultra quick and responsive service, which also uses real-time technology for instant updates when new registrations or payments come in. Some similar services have been around for many years and in turn, use outdated technology, have a cumbersome user interface, or are simply complicated to use and require timely technical support. We also have the most competitive and optimized pricing in the industry with free usage and pay-per-use options.
Finally, Corsizio does not require you to have a traditional business merchant account with a bank. It uses Stripe to enable you to accept payments directly into any personal or business account. Also, unlike other services, Corsizio does not hold your money in an escrow account, or until the event is over. You receive your funds right after the transactions have been processed on a 2 to 7-day rolling basis depending on your country and set preferences.
