Its here! Payments for Avenista. This enables restaurants to set rules that determine whether a Diner has to pay a deposit, purchase a ticket, or leave credit card details (useful for retrospective charging of no-shows) when making a booking. Payments and capture of card details are all executed in accordance with PCI compliance guidelines. Avenista will even charge top-ups if parties increase their party size prior to booking. Where payments are made they will be credited to your bank account within 7 days from our payments provider – Stripe.

Promotional Tools for Avenista

Promote your restaurant with special offers and track which promotion generated the click-through (Twitter/Facebook/Email/Website/etc.). Not only can Avenista flex the booking widget to behave differently for certain promotions it can also track this for you, and importantly can mark the booking with a visual flag so that staff are completely aware that someone has booked for example on the 20% Discount promotion. You are also able to run statistics on these flags to identify for example number of bookings/covers made for each of these flags for a period.

We can set all of these promotions up for you, we just need to know how you want to run them.

Example of promotions that you could set up: –

⋅ 2-for-1: Offer to run on any Monday from now until Nov 30th.

⋅ 40% January: Offer available any day or time in January aside from Sundays between 11am-4pm.

⋅ Midweek Early Meal Deal: Offer available for bookings between 5-6:30pm, Mon-Thursday only.

⋅ Monday Insanity: First 2 reservations to book this link get FREE 2 course meal: Great for driving interest/traffic.

Those are just some ideas for starters.
