February 17th, 2020 (Vancouver, Canada) — Zaui Software, a leading independent booking platform for tour, activity and transportation providers, has announced today that it has joined the Stripe Partner Program as a Verified Partner.
Stripe is a payment processing technology company that builds economic infrastructure for the internet. Supported in 195 countries, Stripe is trusted by millions of businesses of all sizes to power their online payments and run complex global operations.
Zaui had been previously connected to Stripe through a legacy integration. Now, through the Stripe Partner Program and latest integration, Stripe Connect – Zaui is better positioned to serve the global marketplace through a complete, integrated payments solution designed to help operators easily accept and manage online payments, fight fraud, and deliver fast seamless checkout experiences.
The collaboration directly addresses the issues of security and reliability, two recurring payment challenges faced by tourism businesses. The updated integration enables Zaui to offer tours, activities, and transportation providers enhanced security for payment processing through Stripe Radar, a built-in fraud tool powered by machine learning and industry-leading feature for preventing fraud losses and avoiding chargebacks.
The ability for operators to scale global sales and distribution was also a crucial consideration for this partnership. Zaui and Stripe’s mutual customers would also reap the benefits of a robust, global payments infrastructure with the capabilities to process payments in 135+ currencies in 195 countries. Additionally, Zaui’s global customer base would benefit from Zaui’s latest Reserve with Google integration, accessible to Zaui customers with a Stripe account. The connection allows Zaui’s customers to expand their distribution channels and offer their experiences for purchase directly through Google Maps, Search and Assistant.
Despite the slowdown in travel due to the Coronavirus pandemic, boosting the in-person payments experience remains a priority for Zaui, as operators shift their focus towards marketing to local travellers. Stripe Terminal, its point of sale system will play an integral role in helping operators streamline walk-in bookings and in-person checkouts. The addition of an upcoming Wallet payments feature will be key to quick, contactless purchases.
“At Zaui, we help tours, activities and transportation providers worldwide. With that said, we understand our customers are looking for a complete, secure global payments solution that’s easy to set up, accepts a multitude of currencies, and most importantly protects their business from fraud losses,” said Kory Fawcett, CEO at Zaui Software. “We’re thrilled to be a part of the Stripe Partner ecosystem, and to be aligned with a technology-forward partner we can looking toward.”
Stripe Verified Partners undertake a rigorous security and verification process, so that users can be confident in the quality of the partner’s integration with Stripe, as well as more easily find new partners.
“Partners have integrated with Stripe for years—more than half of our fastest-growing users take advantage of one or more Stripe extensions,” said Claire Hughes Johnson, Stripe COO. “But as Stripe is increasingly getting pulled up-market, our users have asked for an easier way to discover new partners and new applications. That’s why we’re excited Zaui is joining forces with us today to provide a better overall experience for the
millions of businesses scaling on Stripe.”
