If you run a tour and activity business, you've probably encountered a few obstacles before, one of them being this - How do you accept payments online?
From the very beginning, TrekkSoft has strived to create an all-in-one solution for tour and activity providers to market, sell and manage your bookings online. That should include accepting payments online. Which is where TrekkPay comes in, TrekkSoft's very own online payment solution.
Our goal is to eliminate the hassle of you searching for a payment solution that fits the nature of tour and activity businesses around the world.
An online payment solution created
by tour and activity operators for tour and activity operators
Traditionally, tour and activity operators had to rely on banks and 3rd party gateways like PayPal and Stripe, who are still tied to traditional banks, to accept payments online. The problem here was that operators were deemed as "high risk" because the travel sector is regarded as volatile and unstable.
When your business is regarded as "high risk", you end up entering contractual agreements that tie you to a lot of terms and conditions, including penalty fees or high costs for issuing refunds or managing cancellations.
With TrekkPay, tour and activity operators will receive a payment service created for you. We understand that some issues like cancellations and refunds just come with the nature of the business, and we're okay with that.
