2. All Together Now
New to Peek Pro 7, your customers now have the ability to view and interact with important booking details through Customer Portal! This customer-facing feature allows your customers to easily access all their booking information in one spot, and make any necessary changes prior to the start of the activity.
These self-service tools enable you to spend less time manually updating bookings and more time focusing on creating the best experience possible for your customers!
Your customers can seamlessly access their Customer Portal through one of three ways:
- In the booking widget after a purchase has been completed
- In an automated email triggered at a time of your choice
- Via SMS text message
With Customer Portal, you control the information that your customers see prior to their booking. Customize your Customer Portal by designing your own unique layout that reflects your company’s branding and values. Once you’ve chosen your theme, select which actions you’d like to include:
Top Tip: Include a customer testimonial or a highlights video so customers know what to expect and get excited for your experience!

6. The Price is Right
Peek’s advanced dynamic pricing functionality gives you the tools to drive additional revenue and demand based on your customers’ behavior.
Attract more customers on slower days and boost profit on your busiest. Set up your pricing to reflect expected demand for your most popular times of the year, as well as slower periods.
To get started select your rule, create the specifics and then apply to your different activities. Take advantage of some of the use cases below to maximize revenue and ensure no ticket goes unused:
Maximize revenue on busy weekends
- Does your business get super busy on the weekends? Set up your dynamic pricing in advance so that your weekday tickets differ from weekend prices. Creating a weekend rule ensures a revenue boost for when customers inevitably book on Saturday and Sunday.
Increase last-minute bookings
- Sell every ticket with Peek’s Last Minute Availability dynamic pricing rule. Offer last-minute discounts to fill open spots in activities as you get close to the start of an activity. Your last seats are the most profitable as you’ve already met your fixed costs so this is a great way to maximize revenue and overall bookings.
Boost demand for quieter timeslots
- Early bird or night owl? If your activity is more popular in the evening, set up a rule that offers your morning hours at a discounted rate. Choose your desired time range for the advanced pricing rule and watch as you increase morning bookings.

7. The More You Know
Peek Pro 7 offers even more customizable reporting options to help you explore, analyze, and share real-time insights easily and drive better outcomes that benefit your business. Some of the new reporting functionalities available in this update include Membership revenue & member data, Custom Question breakdowns and additional Reseller reports.
Here’s a reminder of some of the most helpful business intelligence reports accessible on Peek Pro:
Manifest Based Sales Report
- See total sales broken down by activity and start time for a custom date range to see which activities are your biggest sellers at different points in the year.
- You can also add additional purchase types such as add-ons and tips to get a more granular understanding of additional revenue from each activity.
- Use this information to identify trends and optimize your marketing campaign calendar.
Mobile vs Web Online Sales Report
- Get an in-depth look at whether your customers are booking from their mobile device or planning in advance from their desktop computer.
- If you're getting the majority of bookings from mobile, it might be a sign to optimize your booking flow and site for mobile usage rather than desktop.
- Track the bookings and commissions of all activities sold through your connected resellers. Use this report to see which resellers are most successful, break this down by the number of bookings and purchase sizes
- Use these insights to determine cut-off limits for your different resellers. For example, if one reseller tends to get more high-value bookings you may want to increase the number of tickets they can sell per time slot.
Sales Day by Weekday
- You can see which days of the week are busiest and generate the most revenue for you.
- Configure your Advanced Dynamic Pricing rules based on the findings of this report. If certain days of the week attract a higher number of customers you may want to increase prices to drive demand to quieter days.
