WHAT YouLi DELIVERED πŸ‘‰πŸ€‘πŸ‘ˆπŸΎ Catchup payments

People are booking trips later than they used to, so now when they register AFTER the second installment is due, they will be prompted to pay the deposit AND the second installment at the same time.

If you DO NOT want that to happen, be sure to setup your installments with due dates RELATIVE TO REGISTRATION. Then they will be prompted to pay each one in turn.

Need help setting up your booking pages just right?

* Open a help ticket and ask to book a 1:1 consulting session for just US$60.


πŸ‘‰πŸ€‘πŸ‘ˆπŸΎ Click to call + Custom Link payment methods

ALL Premium accounts now have access to 2 MORE payment methods. 

  1. Click to call - so your travelers can call to provide credit card info 
  2. Click to custom payment link - for donation pages or other booking portals

--> Read more about all the no-fee booking options available to premium plans


πŸ‘‰πŸ’ͺπŸ‘ˆπŸΎ Mobile app onboarding is one click easier

Now your travelers only have to click once from the email to open their trip in the mobile app


You can send them their magic link and they can paste it into the mobile app to load right away

πŸ‘‰πŸ€‘πŸ‘ˆπŸΎ Price per person 

Thanks to Sam Keller of Working Without Borders for requesting this:

YouLi packages default to being priced per person, so you can now that's clear on the embed on your website and on the trip page.


You can edit this by:

  • Click SETTINGS
  • Edit the "Label for package pricing"



πŸ‘‰πŸ’ͺπŸ‘ˆπŸΎ Limit number of embedded trips on website

Thanks to Nate from Adventure Out Loud for requesting this:

This is a power feature for clients with embedded trips on your website. You can now set a limit on how many of the requested trips will appear, so you can show the 4 upcoming trips on your homepage and then ALL your trips on a secondary page.

πŸ‘‰πŸ’„πŸ‘ˆπŸΎ Better logging when status is changed

Thanks to Yirel for requesting this:

Now you'll see a clearer message when you have changed a traveler status.

FOR EXAMPLE: A booked traveler cancels, so you change them to "DECLINED" by editing them from Manage People:




Now you'll see what the status change was explicitly in your ACTIVITY FEED.


πŸ‘‰πŸ€©πŸ‘ˆπŸΎ Who Else is Going?

Thanks to Elinor Fish for requesting this:

Show only the BOOKED people on a trip in BOOKINGS MODE


πŸ‘‰πŸ˜“πŸ‘ˆπŸΎ Testing Affiliate Feature

Some creative folks were inviting their own email address as Affiliates and finding the experience confusing.

We applaud you for testing, but to get the right experience:

Now you'll have to invite a different email address you control (we all have at least 5 these days, right!?) to test out how the Affiliate invite works.

πŸ‘‰πŸ˜“πŸ‘ˆπŸΎ Send to 60 people at a time

We've had to restrict to sending messages to 60 people at a time while we sort out a timeout issue. 

If you do see a timeout error, remember to refresh and check if your request was processed before trying again.


πŸ”ŽπŸœπŸ” Always improving

Security and privacy are important to us, so we've made sure to fix these:

  1. There used to be a way to merge invitation groups on accident - FIXED (#6070)
  2. There used to be a way to see other people on the trip even if that main menu was hidden - FIXED (6049)
  3. Change the spelling of "instalment" to "installment" to please the Americans. πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ
πŸ‘‰πŸš€πŸ‘ˆπŸΎ Grow your Affiliate network TODAY

Last release we we made some improvements for our affiliates and our planners that have affiliates!

🌏 Preview as Registered Hidden From Affiliates 

The "Preview as registered" button will now be hidden from affiliates. This is a tool for planners so in hopes of not confusing any of your beloved affiliates we decided to just remove it from their view :) 

🌏 It's Now Easy to Mark as Paid!

It is now easier to MARK AS PAID and track the payments you owe and have paid to your Affiliates.

🌏 No More Commission on Taxes or Add-ons 

Speaking of payments, We have changed the affiliate report to only account for the base package price.  Affiliates will NO longer receive commissions on taxes, fees, or add-ons.

🌏 Track Leads Not Just Bookings 

We have added a new filter when viewing your affiliate report called ALL PEOPLE. Use this filter to track leads, not just bookings.
