New Delhi [India], Oct 4 (ANI): Unique reverse bidding hotel booking platform FindMyStay has introduced a new feature called 'Book now, Pay at Hotel' allowing guests to make the payment directly at the hotel while checking-in.

The platform's value proposition 'Pay what you want' has now been expanded to 'Pay what you want, when you want'. This move has empowered its customers to have complete control over their hotel booking experience by enabling them to pay once they have reached their desired lodging venue.

This is a major innovation as hotel booking platforms routinely require customers to pre-pay via credit or debit cards, e-wallets or net banking.

FindMyStay's new feature allows for guests to feel secure and pay at their convenience, enjoying a seamless and relaxed travel experience. This payment option is available for bookings with select hotel partners at the moment, though the pool of offers for this feature is rapidly expanding.

FindMyStay empowers the customer by offering hotels at the price they are willing to pay through its reverse biding platform. This arrangement is a win-win for both- guests and hotels, as service providers are able to sell the inventory they foresee going unsold by accepting bids from potential guests.

Moreover, FindMyStay practices the differentiated approach of providing customers and hotels a secure, password-protected one-on-one environment to conduct transactions in. The platform's latest 'Book Now, Pay at Hotel' feature is another step in the direction of the platform's growth as the ultimate customer-hotel facilitator in the country.

"We are further empowering consumer to decide how and when they wish to pay. Some customers prefer advance payments; others feel more secure in paying later. FindMyStay have a customer-centric approach; we aim to make more options available to them, while also ensuring hoteliers benefit from the transactions. The launch of this facility will further enhance our brand affinity amongst our large and growing customer base," said Co-founder FindMyStay, Simran Sial.

With the latest feature, FindMyStay allow customers to save much more than deals available elsewhere and to also get additional promotional discounts. This inherent price advantage has earned the platform an expansive, satisfied customer base, with a 35 percent repeat transaction ratio per month. (ANI)
