Charging the credit cards online - SquareUp is not working in Thailand

Hi all,

 

I just got a message from the support center that i can not use SquareUp and charge the credit card details of the guests (in Thailand). Is anyone using SquareUp in Thailand? What would be the next best possible option to charge the credit card of my clientele online? Please respond if you know that is working in THAILAND.

Cheers for letting me know

Not only but also...

If you are on Phuket there is a local service we use and has been very reliable thus far.

Guys still looking for the best possible solution to pre-authorize and charge the credit cards for no shows. I would appreciate any assistance on the above mentioned. Anyone using paypal? Still though the paypal links will be ignored but it is an option.

cheers for letting me know.

You can request payments/deposit from the guest directly after they book your place with a deadline. If the guest doesn't send a payment, you can cancel their booking. Do you have a business PayPal? PP for personal use has a limit to 2000€ per year if I remember correctly.

Thanks for the prompt response pibomarco. The direct message with the guest does not really work as the guest either forget or ignore it. The best possible solution is to charge teh non refundable reservation immediately after they book. This is standard that i have been following for years in any hotel that i have worked around the globe. The thing is , what we do it here in Thailand? Cheers in advance for any new answers.

Because you don't have many options, this is the only option if you would like to have secured bookings.


- Guest makes a booking


- You send to the guest your bank account details and lets say you give 3 days deadline


- If you don't receive the payment, you mark in extranet that you didn't receive the payment


- Booking.com will then notify the guest and if they won't respond you can cancel their booking in 24h. 


Other options: "Payments by Booking.com"? But I guess this is not available in your country? Open a business account at your local bank and get yourself a POS machine, where you will be able to charge credit cards. Or try 3rd party as Thuild adviced.
