How a partner network can bring destination success

We’ve been writing a lot recently about marketing for Destination Management Organizations (DMOs). You can check out our free eBook ‘The Destination Marketing Handbook’, which is filled with useful tips on how to market your destinations and experiences.

Skift recently published a blog titled '4 Trends Defining Tourism Marketing in 2018.' Dan Peltier wrote, ‘We’ve seen a lot of tried-and-true marketing tactics from destinations this year, but we also saw some newer, smarter strategies on how to use the masses of content and opinions available these days, thanks to social media.’

One trend in the article stood out as an excellent marketing strategy for destinations. It's easily achievable, makes business sense, and surprising that more destinations are not utilizing opportunities to collaborate.

Everything you need to know about TrekkPay's brand new dashboard

"TrekkPay has been a lifesaver. We now process all our transactions internally and we stopped using a third party since the beginning of 2017. Our records are more accurate. They can easily be compiled and printed at the end of each month which saves us on accounting time. We also take advantage of the TrekkSoft marketplace which we are still exploring by talking to the major vendors being added constantly. The card readers are the only ones that work in our region as well so that’s a super plus!" 

- Dario from Exuma Escapes

TrekkPay is a payment gateway built and designed for the tour and activity sector.

In the last few months, the TrekkPay team has worked hard to build a dashboard that gives you an overview of all your transactions and payouts to help you improve your accounting and reporting.

 

1. Built in Know Your Customer process

When getting started, new customers will be asked to complete TrekkPay's Know Your Customer process before accessing the dashboard.

It's simple to do this.

First, agree to TrekkPay's terms and conditions with an electronic signature. Then, fill out your information about your company and upload the required legal documents.

You documents will be reviewed and approved within 2 business days.

2. Recent transactions

The dashboard will display your most recent transaction including all the payment details for each transaction. Issue a refund directly from the dashboard or export your transaction data at any time.

Any refunds made in TrekkPay will be shown in your TrekkSoft account too.

3. Payout overview

Previously, we were aware that users found it difficult to get updated payout figures and had to rely on Sales and Turnover reports to find this data.

With TrekkPay, you'll be able to easily retrieve this information from the Payouts tab.

Set up split payments to automate payouts to multiple partners when you connect with via the Partner Network. If you work with many TrekkSoft partners, let our system handle the payments for you and save yourself time, energy and additional bank transfer fees.

With TrekkPay, you can also enable pre-authorisation of credit cards which is especially useful if you first need to manually confirm a tour before charging a customer. For example, if you run hot air balloon tours and your trips depend on weather conditions, you can first check the weather conditions for that specific date before charging your customers.
