We are delighted to announce an upgrade to the Sport:80 Platform that will significantly improve the technology’s online payment functionality.
Our new payment functionality will replace previous providers, GoCardless and PayPal, paving the way for a much improved user experience. Most notable improvements will include:
1. Integrated user experience (you won’t need to leave the site to make your payment)
2. ‘Remember me’ – faster payments
3. Recurring and one off payments all from the same account
4. Cheaper for all users and sports organisations
In addition to this, the new payment gateway will provide a host of operational benefits to the sports organisations who are part of the Sport:80 community.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION: You will need a debit or credit card to make payments via the new online payment gateway.Also, please be aware that any direct debit payment set up using the previous providers will NOT be affected by this upgrade. You will not be required to make any changes to your existing direct debits.
The upgrade will take place between the hours of 05:00 and 08:00 BST on 16th August. As a result you may notice that the site will be unavailable for a short period.
If you have any questions or queries with regards to any of the above please get in touch using the firstname.lastname@example.org email address.
