Collecting fees on your site makes life easier for your players, and saves you time.
We recommend Stripe for most leagues, because it is simple to use, has no monthly fee,
and lets you get the most out of League Lab's payment features.
However, if you process more than $150,000/year, you will likely save money overall by using a merchant account.
There is no cost for payment integration, but it is not available for free accounts.
The best option for most leagues. Simple pricing,
ease of use, and a truly painless online sign-up process that takes less than 5 minutes. Integrated into
League Lab, so you can create a Stripe account starting from your Admin Panel.
If you run a year-round business processing
over $150,000 online, the lower transaction fees of a merchant account may save you money.
If you're already taking money online, we can probably hook up your
existing merchant account. If you're interested in an new account, we
can walk you through the application process with our partner, Gravity Payments.
if you're interested in one of these merchant account options for your account.

My organization already has Merchant Account that we're happy with, but we want to use League Lab. Can you integrate our Merchant Account, as is?
We can integrate any merchant account that includes an Authorize.net payment gateway with the CIM feature enabled.
However, you must be a high volume league ($150k+ in annual gross revenue) in order to qualify for custom integration.

Payment processing is confusing and I still have questions... help!
As online payment has been a key part of running our own leagues for nearly 10 years now, we know that the world of merchant accounts,
transaction fees, and application forms is often frustrating to navigate for a director. League Lab is committed to transparently
providing information on all fees and terms as clearly as possible, so that there are no suprises once you are up and running.
We also do everything we can to make setting up each option as easy possible. If you have any questions regarding online payment integration,
do not hesistate to contact us.
