Between hurricane check-ins and new marina partner onboardings, we almost forgot to give you the heads up on a cool new feature we rolled out a week or so ago.
It's not a new concept: Just as when you stay at a hotel and have a drink at the lobby bar or nab a snickers out of the fridge in the dead of night, you have the option to put those items on your hotel bill. Similarly, now when you need ice, fuel, electric, etc, during a stay at a marina that you booked at through Dockwa, you may have the option to add those items added to your Dockwa reservation.
No more running back to your boat to get your credit card to pay $2 for ice
No more searching for an ATM or paying ATM fees if a marina only takes cash
Your payment information stays safe – hidden and encrypted, as opposed to jotted down in a ledger or logged in an excel sheet
Marinas can add various items, including events, meals, and ship's store items
The total cost of your stay is all in one place, where you can view it any time
"Put it on my Dockwa tab" – it's so fast to say! Try it! Super fast.
The only catch (it's not really a catch) may go without saying: Each marina needs to set up their Boat Charges in order for boaters to be able to use'em. Two ways marinas can get rolling:
They can set them up themselves, DIY-style – click here for step-by-step instructions
We're more than happy to walk them through the process, or jump in if they have questions during set-up (or anytime, for that matter). Marina managers and staff can click here to schedule a call.
We're working with a few dozen marinas now, and anticipate a bit of a ramp-up period. Know a marina that could use this? Let them know! Marinas only hear what you want when you make yourself heard.
Each marina determines which items to include, if any, so available Boat Charges will vary from marina to marina
