Make room for more guests with our payment solutions.
Hospitality & Tourism
OTT Pay payment solutions enable Chinese visitors to Canada to pay in a currency convenient for them, with a simple QR code scan from their mobile app, so merchants can be paid in Canadian or U.S. currency. Our Hospitality and Tourism payment solutions benefit both the merchant and consumers by providing favourable merchant transaction fees, while adding value and simplicity for consumers.
OTT Pay also builds a rapport with Chinese travellers around the world before they arrive in Canada. We help promote and advertise local Canadian tourist attractions and hospitality destinations overseas, while assisting in planning vacations, through our geo-targeting digital and social media platforms and roster of KOLs (Key Opinion Leaders). All of these can make a lasting impression on your customers, further establishing your brand and services.
OTT Pay’s partnership with InterContinental Hotels is part of the hotel’s ‘China Ready’ program initiative. With this exclusive partnership, OTT Pay helps InterContinental Hotels generate brand exposure among Chinese tourists before they arrive in Canada, including making their payments and purchases easy and the ability to settle in their local currency.
Since 2018, OTT Pay has been the exclusive partner of Tourism Toronto. Tourism Toronto is the official destination marketing organization for the region, “Canada’s Downtown” – encompassing Toronto, Mississauga and Brampton. OTT Pay helps Tourism Toronto with sales and marketing programs in key markets targeting overseas visitors. Working with Tourism Toronto, OTT Pay helps promote the Toronto region as a remarkable destination for tourists, convention delegates and business travellers. Tourism Toronto also operates in partnership with the Greater Toronto Hotel Association and the Ontario Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport.
Tourism is a key economic driver in Ontario, supporting nearly 400,000 jobs and generating over $32 billion of economic activity. It’s excellent to hear that this province’s attractions are drawing in visitors from China and across the globe. We know that Ontario is a preferred destination for tourists from China and it’s important that we make it convenient for visitors to pay in their currency of choice. China and Ontario have long enjoyed a strong relationship, and our government continues to work with our tourism partners to embrace opportunities that support growth in the industry.”
