Here at BookingHound it’s time for a new feature, Deposits! We know that our customers do too. That is why we are always working hard to improve our online booking system and make sure that your event booking software works perfectly for you.
One of our newest, and most useful additions has to be the deposit feature on our activity booking software.
It is designed to allow you to add in the option for your customers to pay the full amount of their booking or place a deposit down. This deposit can be a fixed amount or a percentage of the booking as a whole. Just like many other aspects of our event booking system, the finer details are down to you.
So why is this such a useful addition to have for your event and activity booking?
Benefits of deposits
There are a variety of reasons why you may decide to add the option for deposits into your activity booking system. These relate to both you as a business and your customers.
They don’t have to pay the full amount upfront
If someone is making a group booking, then chances are that their checkout amount is going to be high. Whilst they may have already secured the funds from the attendees, chances are that they will not have all of the money yet.
By offering them the option to pay a deposit rather than the full amount, you are helping them to make the booking, without having to worry about paying for it in full.
They can simply ask the other people in the group to pay the deposit amount, and then bring the full payment with them when they attend the activity or appointment.
You have security
If you currently operate a pay on receipt approach to your activities or appointments, then chances are that you have felt the sting of people making a booking and then not showing up. This costs you money and stops others from booking in with you.
By charging a deposit at the point of booking, you minimise the risk that people will become now shows and make sure that they follow up and come to see you.
So, now you see, everyone is a winner when it comes to taking deposits. Why not try them out for yourself? Thanks to Booking Hound, it is easy to add in this aspect to your online booking system, and gives you an extra touch that can help you to maintain your business and make as many sales as possible.
