The features of the WeTravel Payment Platform
There are many important things to consider in choosing a payment gateway, so here are a few of the features of the WeTravel payment platform.
A booking engine
The WeTravel payment platform isn’t just for collecting payments, it’s also a booking engine. You can manage bookings, collect information to help with your trip planning, send pre-planned automatic emails and communicate with your trip attendees.
You can transfer funds to a US checking account for free or send them to foreign accounts with competitive exchange rates.
Comprehensive payment system
WeTravel allows you to manage every part of the pricing for your group trip or retreat. You’re able to set custom prices including discount code options. The payment system allows you to manage any refunds and have automatic emails sent requesting payments or balances.
Accept credit card payments
Major credit cards like Visa, Master Card, and Amex, among others, are all accepted by the WeTravel payment platform. There is a 2.9% credit card processing fee (3.9% for AMEX) that can be passed onto participants, or you can choose to absorb the fee yourself, in addition to the 1% processing fee.
Accept Bank transfers for free
As well as accepting cards, the WeTravel payment system allows you to collect funds from US bank accounts at no additional fee.
Marketing and admin tools
WeTravel makes marketing easy. After creating a trip page you can easily share your listing on social media, and embed it in any website, or have it listed in our marketplace. We have the option to create flyers as well!
WeTravel supports all major currencies including USD, CAD, GBP, EUR, AUD. You can view pricing for all the supported currencies here.
The WeTravel marketplace
You can list your trip for free in our marketplace. Any sales booked through our marketplace and advertising efforts will incur a 10% service fee.
If you use WeTravel for private group trips then it will not be listed in the marketplace and you won’t have to pay any service fee.
WeTravel is excited to offer the new service, WeTravel Business. It’s a white-label solution aimed at travel companies, that puts their brand front and center. We custom brand the booking process so that participants will see your branding when they book a trip. These trips aren’t listed on the marketplace as everything is branded with the company logo and managed through your own website or channels.
