Transforms payment process and customer experience

Sun-hat Villas is an online travel agent that provides its customers with luxury holiday accommodation across Europe and the Caribbean. The company’s previous payments system required a lot of time-consuming manual input on the part of both its employees and customers. What’s more, the fiddly process of matching payments with booking references and manually typing in payment amounts was prone to human error.
Sun-hat Villas was looking for a way to automate its payment processes, reduce the scope for human error and provide a much more customer-friendly way to collect payments, in line with its role as a provider of luxury holidays. Payit ticked all those boxes.

The booking reference is automatically pre-populated so the payment is automatically allocated to the correct booking. Payit is helping Sun-hat Villas save on transaction fees and has massively simplified the way its customers pay. It’s also slashed the amount of time its staff spend processing payments manually.
