Payments is a feature of Shiftboard that enables organizations to hold members accountable for their shifts by requiring credit card information and an acknowledgement agreement to complete their registration.
This feature could be beneficial, for example, at music festivals, which typically require a large number of volunteers to cover shifts. In some cases, a music festival might offer a free entrance pass to volunteers in exchange for their time. To make sure these volunteers work their scheduled shifts, an organization can ask for a credit card to keep on file along with having volunteers acknowledge they agree to the terms of the pass before submitting their registration. If the volunteer does not show up for their shift(s), the organization would be able to charge them for the pass.
