Pin Payments - Win as we celebrate our Partnership

pin payments landscape colourFrom our humble beginnings, Australia based Pin Payments were a dream come true for a business like ours, who cater for guests from around the world and run tours in several countries.  As we celebrate our long-term relationship with the team at Pin Payments, we also give you a chance to win a long weekend away cycling in the Victorian Alps in Australia.

We have always considered Pin Payments to be the 'missing link' in dealing with payments in foreign currency. Our Finance department worked tirelessly for many years to find a solution to enable us to receive payments via credit card in the same currency of our tours, then have the funds transferred into the relevant currency accounts. As many will know, fluctuating exchange rates can be dangerous if you collect tour payments in a different currency to what you are going to be spending it.

Not only did Pin Payments feel like we had been blessed, setting up our business for free via their easy-to-use interface took no time at all. After providing the relevant required information, we had our foreign currency accounts all linked up and ready to roll ( read more about their foreign currency support here).

The benefits don't stop there, their numerous integrations allowed us to link our Shop, Accounting Software and Bookings up seamlessly (read more about Pin Payments ever-growing portfolio of integrations).

Pin Payments provide real-time and live local support from their head offices in Melbourne, Australia. Whilst we have never had any issues, any queries have always been answered promptly. Monthly summaries, updates, actions etc arrive in a clear to read format via email and their interface can be viewed easily via any device.

We love the ability to perform instant payments, recurring payments and manual sales in any currency we like and producing instant invoices for our customers.

All in all,  it is pretty clear, we love the crew at Pin Payments as much as we love their system. Its a one-stop-shop solution for an international business such as Maglia Nera Tours.

To celebrate our beautiful partnership, Pin Payments, being a major sponsor of the 3RRR Radio Marathon running from the 27th Aug - 6th Oct, 2021, are giving away a spot on a three day tour in the Victorian Alps valued at AUD$ 1500.
