SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- PayByGroup, the world's leading group payments solution, announced today that it has partnered with Barefoot Technologies, a pioneer in vacation rental property management software, to provide Barefoot customers with fully integrated access to PayByGroup's group payments platform.

With the new PayByGroup for Barefoot (http://www.paybygroup.com/business/barefoot/) integration, property managers who use Barefoot can now easily add the PayByGroup checkout option to their website.  PayByGroup (www.paybygroup.com/business) allows guests to split the cost of a vacation rental with family and friends directly on a property manager's website.  This not only increases guest satisfaction ratings, but also cuts booking cycles by 5 to 9 days, boosts marketing reach by 40%, and protects managers and their homeowner clients by collecting contact information and rental agreements from every guest in the booking party.  

Between 10% and 20% of guests choose PayByGroup as their preferred checkout option on vacation rental websites, a number that continues to increase as the checkout option becomes more widely available throughout e-commerce.  "We're excited to bring PayByGroup to Barefoot clients because the traveler demand for this product is clear, and it also provides a great revenue driver for property managers," said Ed Ulmer, Barefoot's Vice President.

The PayByGroup for Barefoot integration streamlines the group booking process by connecting directly to property managers' inventory in real-time. This allows for automated completion of PayByGroup bookings without the need for agent involvement.

"The PayByGroup for Barefoot integration is a huge win for travelers and managers alike. Before PayByGroup, any reservation with multiple payers was a logistical nightmare for both travelers and property managers," noted Kevin Shepherd, Director of Strategic Clients at PayByGroup.

Barefoot clients can sign up for a free trial of PayByGroup for Barefoot to start capturing more leads and increase their revenue today.
