Once PayPal is connected to your Calendly account, you can add payments to new or existing event types from your Event Types page.

  2. Expand the Booking page options section to enable set up the Collect payment on form setting.

  3. Specify the amount and currency to be collected when an event is scheduled. Customize your payment terms with any information an invitee may need before confirming their payment.
  4. Add your cancellation policy or specify additional fees to come later.

At any point, you can change any paid event type back to free by choosing the Do not collect payments for this event setting within the Booking page options section.

What currency can I collect payments in?

$ CAD - Canadian Dollar

€ EUR - Euro

£ GBP - Pound Sterling

$ USD - United States Dollar

Can I offer discount codes?

We do not currently offer a coupon or discount code option with our PayPal integration.


If working with a one-on-one event, you could clone your event type, then require different payment amounts for each. Just visit your Event Types page and select Clone from the gear menu of the event you'd like to copy.

For example, you can require $50 for the event type that is public, and only $40 (or even no payment collection at all) for a secret event. Share the secret event link directly with any invitee who should receive the discounted price, as this event will not appear on your landing page for others to choose from!

Does Calendly's PayPal integration collect sales tax?

No, our payment integrations do not collect VAT/Sales tax. You can include this in the cost and amend their amount to be collected in the event type.
Does Calendly process refunds?
No, refunds must be processed manually by the account holder. Calendly support will direct invitees to contact you regarding any payments they submit through your scheduling page.
