We’re living through hard times, to say at least. As a result of social distancing, car rentals, car dealers and body shops have to rethink how they are going to manage payments and save the business. This has been especially widespread in tourism-related space. Many businesses closed their doors in the wake of recent government announcements and restrictions.
These changes have led to an almost crucial need for rental business owners to shift their payments and operations totally online. And as more and more car rentals start to move to online reservations and payments, they need to have a tool that will ensure for them and their clients secure and fast tool to manage their payment-related operations.
How Online Payment Gateway Can Benefit Your Rental Business?
Virtual POS or Online Payments allow car rental business owners to manage charges, deposit, and other rental operations.
The benefits of Online Payment Integration Includes:
- Being able to do deposits, charges, authorizations, and pre-authorizations directly inside the rental.
- Secure Payments, as Ingenico stores the card data and not your company.
- Being able to refund in a couple of minutes after the vehicle came back without damages.
