Where to set up online payments

To set up your online payments, you can select your preferred payment gateway from Tours -> Settings -> Business and Finance Setup.


How to accept online payments

To use online payments with Tashi, you must sign up for an account with one of our three payment gateway partners. We've partnered with these three major global online payment gateways because they're trustworthy and secure.

  1. Stripe - popular in North America, Europe and Australia/NZ. Stripe is available in 39 countries. Check them out here.

  2. PayPal - international payment gateways. Let your guests checkout with their Paypal accounts or via Credit/Debit card. Find more details here.

  3. Flutterwave - is the best solution for African businesses. It's available in 48 countries. Check them out here.

  4. Razorpay - Specifically for India, check them out here.

Once you've signed up with your best payment gateway solution, you'll need to obtain your account's 'Public Key' and 'Secret Key'.

The 'Public Key' and 'Secret key' are the codes that you'll enter in Tashi to connect your Tashi Booking Engine to your payment gateway so that when clients pay online, the funds go directly to you.

Top Tip 💡: If you don't see your preferred payment gateway here, are not sure which one to choose or how to sign up for them, Ask Us! We're very familiar with the process and happy to help.
