You simply need to login using your Facebook account and authorize GoSignUp.Me. You can sign up for an event, purchase items from a sale or you can create your own event/sale. Once you created an event, the event will have a unique URL where you can use this URL to share among your friends. If your event requires payment, you will be given a link to signup for WePay account after the event is created.
We partner with WePay and use secure payment encryption technology. Your money is stored securely until you are ready to request a withdrawal via check or electronic bank transfer. We use Facebook only to validate your identity in lieu of requiring another registration form that asks a lot more information, we only save your basic information such as name, email and Facebook Id. We are not interested in your friends' list or other personal information.
If you are creating an event that accepts payment then you will need SSN to make withdrawal. This is a policy from our payment service provider, WePay. Please see WePay support link to learn more about this.
We charge 3% commission on each purchase and our payment service provider charges 2.9% + $0.30 to process credit card transaction. You can select whether the payer or the payee bear the fees when you create your event. The total fee will always be displayed to the payer before they confirm their payment if you choose payer to bear the fees.
You can withdraw any time. Most withdrawals will take between 3 to 5 business days to be deposited into your bank account. You can choose between an electronic bank transfer or paper check delivery during the withdrawal process.
