How to make an offer - walk in table venues
iBidU lets you set the price you are offering for your customers to get a table at your venue.
1. From the home screen, tap 'Offer' and on the Offer screen (shown below) enter the details requested:
in the '£' field the total amount you are requesting
in the 'people' field the size of the table your offering, in terms of number of people e.g. 2
the location field is pre-filled with the name of your venue
type anything additional you want customers to know in the 'notes...' field, e.g. "on the terrace.."
The bottom section summarises your offer and shows what your venue will receive net of iBidU's processing fees. Press 'Offer' when you are done.
2. Your offer then gets notified to everyone at your venue with the iBidU app and is listed on the home screen (with a green icon) - when a customer accepts your offer, you get a notification asking if you want to continue. If you accept, then both your screens change to the same colour to help find each other (see below).
You see yourself as a blue dot, the other party is a red pin. In the example below, you are seeing the customer screen and you are the red pin.
The customer clicks the credit card button to pay when they are with you just prior to your seating them - they have to wait for you to click an 'Accept' button in the same spot on your own screen before they can pay you - you can still cancel the transaction until now, should you wish.
3. Below is an example of the customer's screen when pay you - at this point the transaction becomes final and you must show them to their table, although you are able to request iBidU to refund them if you wish to.
4. When the customer has paid you, you will receive a confirmation message similar to the one shown below, the transaction is complete.
All completed transactions may be viewed through your Account screen, simply click on the 'Payments Statement' button to see a full list of transactions, from which you can select to view details of any one.
