Wix is a cloud-based web development platform, or a way for you to build your own website from scratch with a "drag n' drop" process. As Wix say on their website, it's "Web Creation Made Simple". That equally applies for tour and activity companies, especially with the TrekkSoft integration plugin. With this feature, you can easily sell your tours and activities through your Wix website.
If you have a Wix website, you're in good company. Wix has over 85 million users in 190 countries, many of whom are tempted by the "freemium" business model. This means that it's free to get started with, but comes with added costs for premium features.
To take your Wix website to the next level, here's how to integrate booking software and start receiving revenue for online bookings.
How to integrate booking software with a Wix website
The TrekkSoft Wix plugin allows you to easy sync your TrekkSoft inventory and bookings with your Wix website. It's designed to be a really simple and streamlined process, and in just a few minutes you can display your real-time availability to customers and let them book and pay for tours and activities directly on your website.
1. Sign up for a free 14 day trial of TrekkSoft

In order to process bookings and payments with TrekkSoft, you need to sign up for one of our paid plans. You can browse our pricing plans here to see which best suits your business.
2. Add the TrekkSoft plugin to your Wix account
3. Enter your TrekkSoft information to the Wix plugin
4. Show where you want your "book now" button to appear
After you've connected your TrekkSoft account with Wix through the plugin, all that's left is choosing where you want the "book now" button to appear. You can do this by adding a quick line of code in your content where you want your customers to book or browse your activities:
[trekksoft type="tour_booking" tour_id="1234"]
If you need any help with this as a customer, our customer support team is trained to get your Wix website up and running with TrekkSoft.
5. You will now see a "book now" button on your website
If you've got to this step and saved the code on your website, you should see a booking button on your website. Your website is now ready to generate revenue!
6. You can now process tour and activity bookings!
Your customer can click on the "book now" button and see a window appear where he or she can pay for a tour or book other services that you offer. This is a secure and user-experience-optimised process, and your customer can book without ever leaving your website.
This information about our integration process is included in the TrekkSoft documentation.
The advantages of integrating TrekkSoft with Wix
Advantage 1 - You can keep your branding consistent
It's easy to customise your Trekksoft booking system to fit the rest of your site design. This allows you to guide customers through a seamless booking process. It also gives your branding a boostm especially as there is no pesky advertising for other marketplaces or payment providers during the checkout process.
Advantage 2 - Your customers don't have to leave your website to book or pay
If you're booking a tour or activity online, the last thing you want is to be redirected between several different websites. Online booking should be a simple, fast, and secure process. With TrekkSoft software we make sure that happens!
Advantage 3 - It keeps your life simple
TrekkSoft booking software is designed to let you dedicate more time to what you love, and we hope our Wix plugin reflects this! This is just one of our features to save you time, another being our Mobile App that enables you to manage your business anywhere, any time, and on any device.
