How to get more customers in the door

Use Dimmi Payments Powered by ResDiary to secure bookings. Say goodbye to no-shows and hello to a full restaurant and increased revenue.

Secure bookings

Use credit card guarantees to secure bookings and lower the risk of no-shows and cancellations.

Take deposits

Holding a special event? Ask customers for a deposit at the time of making a booking to ensure they don’t bail on you at the last minute, or worse, just not show up.

Accept full payment

For important dining days like Mother’s Day or set course menus, receive payment upfront to protect yourself from no-shows.
