Xola Waivers

Save time at check-in by getting waivers signed before arrival. No more having customers sign paper waivers when you have Xola Waivers. When you install Xola Waivers from the App Store, you can create your waivers and assign them to listings. Your customer can sign a waiver at checkout or in the confirmation email to have this done before arrival.  In addition, your customer can also fill out your questionnaire in the waiver to save them time and for you to have all your customer information in one place.

Questionnaires collect additional information from your customers. What is included in the Questionnaire is completely customizable, and it can be set up as Global or Listing-Specific. For the Waiver, go to your questionnaire settings in your Xola account and toggle on "In Xola Waivers" so these questions will show on your Xola Waivers. 


Note: Questionnaire answers will show on the roster on your Xola dashboard if you download the PDF version of the Waiver from the dashboard. 

How to configure the Waiver to Products

To configure which listings you would like Xola Waivers to apply to, navigate to Customers > Digital Waivers and click the pencil next to the waiver you would like to use.



What the customer sees 

After a customer completes a booking for Listing with a Xola Waiver tied to it, the checkout window will ask them to fill out the waiver.


This same digital waiver link will also be included in your customer's Confirmation and Reminder emails. They can click the link in the email at any time to sign.


Customers will also be allowed to sign another waiver or share the waiver link with other guests. They can click the share link, and a waiver URL will be copied, and they can send it to others via email, text, or group chat.



Customer Reminders

Reminder emails and/or SMS for the customer to ensure all waivers are signed will be sent to your customers. By default, reminders are set to be sent 7 days, 3 days, and 1 day before arrival. You can override the default and set reminders in any increment you would like. You choose how many reminders are sent and if they are sent after the purchase is made or before the arrival date. To set this up, go to Settings> Notifications.
