Welcome to Purple Support

TripAdvisor

  • Updated

Note: Tripadvisor have recently deprecated part of their service which is used within Purple’s Tripadvisor connector. Unfortunately this means that the Purple Tripadvisor connector is currently unavailable.

We're working with TripAdvisor to investigate which of their replacement products will provide you with the best solution and to ensure they include the same functionality and at the same time we need to discuss the commercial levels of this implication. More information will be provided as soon as we have it but we are in daily contact with TripAdvisor on this matter.

Within the Purple Platform there is a workaround, to ensure your WiFi users have the opportunity to leave a positive review for your venue, you can create a campaign within Marketing > Communications and include the link to your TripAdvisor page. For more information about how to set this up, refer to Communications.

If you have any more queries regarding this, please contact support@purple.ai

The TripAdvisor connector links your Purple account with TripAdvisor to automatically send reminders to guests who connected to the WiFi, 24 hours after their visit to your venue, to ask them to leave a review; instantly promoting feedback and enhancing your online presence.
