In our latest Orioly update we introduced a few user interface changes. Moving forward, we made some more updates. They will help you attract international customers to your tours and activities. Let me introduced them to you!
Attract International Customers with Braintree Credit Card Payments
Braintree is a well-known and popular payment gateway system. It can be used by SMEs and it supports credit card payments in almost 50 countries worldwide. Tour and activity operators love it! It’s easy to use and it has attractive commission fees. If you check their pricing page , you will see that the standard processing fee is 1.9% + $0.30 (2.9% for American Express credit cards). Check out the credit and debit cards you can charge using the Braintree payment gateway!
How to start using Braintree? First of all, open your Braintree account. Once it’s set, go to your Orioly account settings and set the extra payment gateway.
You can use, for example, PayPal and Braintree at the same time. Doing so, you enable your customers to pick their favorite payment method. Read our Braintree guidelines and set your account in less than 10 minutes.
This is a great way to attract international customers!
This payment option is available starting with the Orioly’s Starter plan.
Orioly Booking System now Speaks 8 Different Languages
Finally, your along-waited multilanguage support is now available in our online booking system. Now your customers can make bookings using one of these languages:
Based on their location and browser settings, our online booking system will switch their booking form to their language.
Upgrading Invoicing Support for Croatian Tour Operators
Recently, we implemented fiscal cash register support for Croatian tour operators.
What does that mean?
Now Orioly will automatically send all needed information to the Croatian tax office. There is no need for you to do it. All you need to do is go to invoicing settings of your Orioly account and all needed fiscal information.
This option is available starting with the Orioly’s Starter plan.
We implemented a few more minor features based on your feedback:
- Improved management of children discounts –
- Notification about a customer’s time zone
- Extra video tutorials
There are many interesting things we are planning to publish this year. Make sure to stay tuned for more news about Orioly updates!
Other than that, we want to hear more from you! Let us know how can we help you build an even better Orioly platform to serve your purposes. If you have some ideas for building even better user experience, we’d love to know about them, too!
Thank you in advance!
