Antigua & Barbuda is a stunning tri-island nation (along with the uninhabited island of Redonda) in the Leeward Islands. Famously known for it's 365 beaches and booming tourism sector, this is an ideal location to host tours and charters. From snorkeling to offshore island trips, island safari to zipline tours, Antigua is an island prime with opportunity to host local and international guests year-round.
With stringent anti-money laundering rules imposed by international banks, as well as limitations on payment processing services such as PayPal, tour operators in Antigua and Barbuda aren't left with many options to begin accepting payments online.
As a tour operator, accepting online payments gives a strong sense of security to the business. Not only does getting deposits or full payments upfront secure bookings and reduce cancellations, it also prevents no-shows. Junglebee's booking system offers a payment gateway that allows for a seamless booking process for the guests, as well as a customizable and user-friendly platform for the operator.
Processing payments with Junglebee is not only easy, but also very reasonably priced; with only a 7% booking fee on all credit card transactions, a fee which can be either passed onto the guest or absorbed in the overall tour cost by the operator, as well as, a USD $25 transfer fee is charged for all bi-weekly or monthly transfers to the tour operator's Antiguan bank account.
