Evite + PayPal?

In coordinating events for a small alumni group I want to collect money in advance of each event, so that somebody's not left holding the bag when a few people don't show up. I'm basically looking for Evite, but requiring payment in order to RSVP in the affirmative. (It turns out Evite doesn't do this.) Is there any such service?

PayPal

PayPal Filter: I recently started using PayPal--the first transaction was my 'donation' to MeFi. Then I sold a book on eBay and had $77.00 paid to me through PayPal. I, foolishly I guess, left the money there thinking I'd use it to buy stuff down the road. But yesterday within three minutes someone 'paid' me $660 and then paid out $723 which effectively deleted my balance save 31-cents. PayPal seems not too surprised and waffled shamelessly when I asked how this happened and if I could get my money back. It seems to me eBay could afford to make good on transactions gone wrong by their unsecured system. [I've mailed in an affidavit as they required.] I need $77 a lot more (for Christmas) than eBay does and yet IF I get my money back it's not likely to be in time to buy presents this year. Any ideas, suggestions, pointers to finding a remedy?

Alternatives to PayPal.

Are there PayPal alternatives? A friend would like to charge for some content, but her site contains material that PayPal may deem pornographic (although it is not), and would therefore refuse services because of.
