March break is coming and you’re in charge of collecting information and cash for the ski weekend you’re planning for your school’s cross-country team, your kid’s Girl Scout troop, or your buddies who are terrible at getting things organized. March Break is also great for everyone from coaches to ski instructors to home daycare owners to host week-long or long weekend one-time offerings, like a dance school intensive three-day mini-camp, a ski camp at the local mountain, a pack of surf lessons, or just extra days of daycare for your current clientele.
If you’ve been trying to figure out how to start taking registrations for a March Break adventure, camp, clinic or side hustle, but you don’t already have a website up and running, using a Google Form and the Payable Add-On to collect information about campers and get paid can keep the process simple. Setting up registration this way can be done in under 15 minutes—making it the easiest part of the planning process! And for new business owners, people collecting cash from friends, or side hustlers who don’t have extra cash to pay for pricey subscriptions, good news: Payable only makes money if you do—and it’s lower cost than the popular event registration sites.
We even have a free template to help you get started. Simply head to the link and copy the Form. Then, install the Payable Add On in the Google Marketplace and activate it in your Form. This lets you connect your Form to Paypal, Square, Stripe or other payment providers. All that’s left is customizing the Form with whatever questions and information you need to collect.
