Receive deposit payments with Tourwriter’s Stripe integration

Tourwriter makes receiving payments from your travellers a whole lot easier with the Stripe payment processing option. Connect to your Stripe account in Tourwriter to activate the Deposit payment option.

Setting up your Stripe account

The first step to setting up payments in Tourwriter is to connect your Stripe Account to Tourwriter.

  1. On your homepage, navigate to Organisation > Settings.
  2. In your Organisation settings, click the Connect button in the Stripe account section to link Tourwriter to your Stripe account.

  1. If you do not have a Stripe account you will be directed to complete a sign up form via the Stripe website. 
  2. If you already have a Stripe account, click Sign in, located on the top right hand corner of the page.

Accepting a Deposit via Tourwriter

Once your Stripe account is connected to Tourwriter you will be ready to accept payments from your travellers. Follow the steps below to prepare your itinerary for accepting a deposit payment via Stripe:

  1. Open the itinerary you want to set a deposit amount for and navigate to the Manage tab. Head to the Incoming Payments subtab.
  2. Add a payment of type Deposit and method Stripe.
  3. Add a deposit amount and fill in the rest of the fields before saving the payment.

 

  1. Once in the Proposal or the Final itinerary, your traveller will be able to select the Pay now option in the footer of the itinerary.

  1. When the traveller selects Pay now, they will be prompted to enter their card details and complete the payment.

Note: The terms & conditions on the payment window directs you to the Terms & conditions page in the Default settings section of your organisation settings. 

Once deposit payment has been made the Payment section on your itinerary will display Deposit paid, as highlighted below. The traveller can also accept the Terms & conditions if the itinerary was shared with them privately. 

Note: Currently you can only add a Deposit to B2C itineraries. You do not get an option to pay a deposit amount for a B2B itinerary, i.e. an itinerary with Agencies.
