Zenoti allows you to enforce OTP authorization for membership redemption both at the organization level and the center level. Once the OTP authorization is enforced, the OTP is sent to the guest's registered mobile while redeeming a membership, which needs to be produced to the front desk staff to process the redemption.

A default code for OTP can also be set for each center. which can be used to override the system generated code to handle situations such as the guest not receiving the OTP on time.
