Collecting Payment for Your Sports and Fitness Events on OpenSports

Collecting payment for your events has never been easier (and cheaper!)

OpenSports uses a payment system called Stripe that is fully integrated with our platform (web + iOS and Android app) so you can seamlessly collect payments at a lower cost than other platforms that help you collect payment for your events.

Collecting payment through OpenSports:

In order to collect payment through OpenSports (iOS, Android, or Web), follow these steps below:

Note: the process is the same on Web. Participants can pay for your event through the web or app.

  1. When you are in the “Create a Game” screen, you must select the option “Specify position, team, or price” by toggling it on to green.
  2. You must input a Price in the Price field (such as $10).
  3. A field asking you to “Collect Payment via OpenSports” will appear, and you must toggle that on to green.
  4. If you are a first time organizer collecting payment: Your game will be pending approval from someone from OpenSports. Once it is approved, it is live and players can start joining.

Accepted Cards: Visa, MasterCard, American Express (Debit not accepted at the moment).

Seeing who has paid (payments received dashboard):

You will be able to see who has RSVP’d and paid, as players join on mobile and web.

Web dashboard for payments received — So that you can manage your incoming funds!

Obtaining funds:

E-Transfer: Once the funds are collected on OpenSports, they will be sent to you via an electronic transfer. The e-transfer is sent to you within 36 hours of your game.


Refunds are sent manually by you, if you choose to refund a player. You may send a player a refund at any time after they have paid, through the app or the website.

Just tap on “Manage game” and you will see a list of the game attendees (See Images below). Tap on the “View Details” button and in the next screen, tap “Refund” for whoever you want to refund. That’s it!


  1. Post a game!
  2. We’ll review it, check with you on how you want to receive payouts, and approve your game. This is a one time process per account.
  3. Send invites, start playing and making money!

Now you’re ready to collect payment!
