Where it started?
Nepal is one the top tourist destinations in Nepal, with the Lonely Planet listing Kathmandu as the 5th best places to visit in the world. But that is not what triggered our interest in developing a payment gateway for Nepali tourism website. It was rather our groups attempts to pay for one of our group tours to Mustang some months back. Though we booked the tour, the tour operator was not accepting online payments in Nepali rupees. We made the trip but when we returned we realized that if we faced the problem, than there are others too like who face this problem every day!
We jumped into the market, analyzed the propositions and soon zeroed on making an add-on for integrating Khalti Wallet. With the Visit Nepal Year 2020, the tourism industry is gearing up for a new boom. Media reports claim that there has been a great surge in domestic tourism ahead of the upcoming VNY-2020 and most of these tourists are youngsters, like us, who prefer paying online and and on the go! With the integration of Khalti Payment Add-on with WP Travel, we are sure travel and tour operators will also have a lot of ease in receiving payments and increase their sales!
