Accept payments at less cost to your business

One of the primary reasons we built Waitlistr was to bring together the disparate tools that business owners had previously cobbled together. We’ve talked to many of the waitlist owners on Waitlistr and gathered a deep understanding of some the pain points they still experienced even while using us. Accepting payment kept coming up!

Accepting payment for goods and services is at the heart of most businesses — business owners running waiting lists are no exception. We understand that many of our list owners are small businesses and/or entrepreneurs participating in the gig economy, so we are exceedingly mindful of the cost to run a business. We built our payment platform specifically to tackle the needs of our users and provide it at a lower cost than most of the tools they previously used.
