Everyday savings and benefits with PayDo, a free mobile and web application
Due to the great number of tourists and the increased number of vehicles in Rovinj, the number of users of PayDo, a free application for paying parking charges is growing every day and additional benefits have been activated. Faster and cheaper parking via mobile phone or the Web is now also available to foreign tourists and now all private and business users can easily pay hourly and daily parking rates as well as daily use parking vouchers issued by the parking control officer or parking tickets. The town of Rovinj is currently one of the 19 locations where PayDo service of the globally recognized IT company ‘Infoart’ is activated and provides the citizens who have paid for parking by text message, more specific and daily savings. Paying via PayDo application not only saves money while it avoids the costs of mobile operators, but it currently gives promotional benefits to all Mastercard® cardholders: 10% of the paid hourly rate is returned to the user on the promotional account that can be used for future parking payments. Let us recall that in Europe, over 90 percent of consumers use a smartphone more than any other device. Among them, 57 percent of Croats view the mobile phone as their preferred payment device, while 22 percent already use mobile payments. The PayDo application, which allows users to use the same device they keep on hand at all times for payment, is a simple, practical and logical solution. The use of this application is the perfect solution for all private accommodation owners without their own parking spaces. “Having no parking place with the accommodation is becoming an increasing problem for both tourists and renters. In the absence of their own parking spaces, boutique hotels and small renters can now offer their guests free parking in the area of Rovinj, but also in all 19 locations where the application is available through the PayDo application. In only one step a certain amount is paid into the PayDo account and is assigned to the guest. Guests appreciate this symbolic gesture, and when advertising their accommodation facilities the owners have a solution to the problematic issue of providing parking spaces", said Borivoj Sirovica, the director of Infoart, adding that because of the tourists, the application is available in English, German and Italian. The PayDo application, across the country popularly called Pajdo, is currently available in Rovinj, but also in Bjelovar, Crikvenica, Dubrovnik, Novi Vinodolski, Osijek, Šibenik, Pula, Poreč, Samobor, Sisak, Slavonski Brod, Karlovac, Split, Varaždin, Vodnjan, Vukovar and Zadar. The app will soon be available in other cities, including Zagreb, to make the service available at the national level.
The PayDo application is optimized for the most popular iOS and Android mobile platforms (App Store and Google Play), and can also be downloaded from the web site: www.paydo.hr Check out the promotional video at: https://youtu.be/kGvUII0Wq5w
A BENEFIT TO ALL WHO COULD NOT PAY FOR PARKING BY TEXT MESSAGE: “So far, in Croatia, certain categories of business users, tourists and individual private users could not make a parking payment by text message. For the aforementioned categories of users, the only parking payment solution was the search for parking meters and some business users had to collect bills that they would later submit to their companies. Now, all users of the application can pay for parking at no extra charge, and there is an additional convenience for Mastercard card users, while absolutely all costs are visible in one account”, said Borivoj Sirovica, the director of Infoart.
