Webinars are becoming more and more popular since the pandemic started because they are a convenient substitute for the usual offline seminar.
No matter, if you are a professional offering, paid sessions, or a teacher meeting with students for free, webinars are the way to go.
How does a webinar work?
Webinars are usually presented in front of a larger audience, meaning that only the hosts can turn their cameras on and unmute themselves. However, this could be managed through the settings and participants can also be allowed to speak. Lately, in virtual events lingo, they refer to this as ‘inviting someone to the stage’.
In case the host decides not to grant that permission, attendees can freely use the chat to ask questions, make comments, or give feedback, which makes the whole experience a bit more interactive.
The host needs to be able to share their screen and provide participants with easy access to all referred materials during the webinar.
Also, in terms of paid webinars, sending invoices to each participant can be a bummer so what you should be looking for is a platform that combines video meetings with payments.

How to charge for webinars
However, if you want to get paid, you’ll have to select between two options.
If a corporation or institution is paying for your services, choose One person pays for the meeting. This way the employer will be the person who pays you, while employees will be the attendees joining your session.
If you want each attendee to pay on their own, then click on the Each participant pays for the meeting button. This way every person who wants to join your webinar will be charged beforehand.
After you’ve made that choice, you’ll be able to set a price accordingly.
You can also change the currency.
3veta is a premium video conferencing software that allows meetings with up to 100 people. These are perfect for workshops as well as webinars, too. Moreover, you can also stream your webinar on both Facebook and Google.
How do you get paid for your webinars?
3veta works with Stripe to provide you with a secure and subtle method of online payments in exchange for a small commission fee. Before joining your webinar, each participant will be asked to pay the amount of money you’ve determined.
Stripe will process and collect your money and will send them to your bank account right away.
If you already have a Stripe account you’re a champ!
Go to Payments and select Connect to Stripe, in a matter of a couple of clicks you’ll be ready to receive payments as a service provider at 3veta.
And if you don’t have a Stripe account yet, no worries! The registration process is really simple and should take you less than 5 minutes.
