How to Accept Online Payments with Booking SoftwareTipps & Tricks Frank Scheibe
The tours and activities industry is chock full of competition, and staying ahead of the curve today is often about more than just offering the best activities at the best price — booking convenience, too, can mean the difference between making a sale and watching your competitors steal the show. But thanks to modern booking software, you can keep your business on the cutting edge and stay one step ahead of the pack. The effectiveness of any given booking suite comes down to a combination of factors: user-friendliness, speed, flexibility and, most importantly, payment options. To help you get started, we’ve put together a short introduction to using booking software for online payments, below.
Why You Should Accept Online Payments through Your Website
Today, the number of people who are completely comfortable paying for things online is on the rise, as is the number of people who have come to expect online payment options. As a tour and activity provider, this is a trend you can’t afford to ignore. It’s time to stop forcing your customers to make compromises when it comes to convenience — why make them come to you when you can go to them? In other words, it’s time to make your tours and activities an experience to remember right from the start: with quick, easy and mobile online booking!
How Online Payments Can Help Your Business
With modern booking tools, payments land right in your account, even if the activity or event is scheduled for a later point in time. This means you can use your revenue right away to expand your business and offer your customer more.
Online payments also mean less work for you and your employees — no invoices, no ticket offices, no more combing through account statements — and lower costs. And even the occurrence of errors is significantly lower, so customers stay happy and you can focus on what matters most.
How Booking Software Handles Payment Processing
