How can I get paid when property is booked instead of getting paid in cash at property?

I can't figure out how to get paid online when guest books my property, the reservations keep getting canceled leaving me without pay because I can only get paid at the property because I'm currently not see any other options....

ANY IDEA HOW TO FIX THIS ISSUE GUYS? I REALLY NEED HELP.

Send a message in your Extranet asking them to set up Payments by Booking.com

If they refuse, switch to AirBnB

Typically there are 3 options:

 

  1. Payments By Booking.com - prepaid, payout 15th of following month, or 8 days periods paid out a few days after each.  
  2. Virtual Credit Card - Guest pays BdC, BdC generates a VCC and attaches the details to reservation. Partner then on check-out or end of month bulk claims payout, via a Virtual Terminal or similar services (e.g. sumpcom.com, payrexx.com)  
  3. On Arrival, Card or Cash - an epos smart phone app ; a PoS contactless device; or Cash is king.

 

Note: the best option or best of both worlds is the sumup/payrexx, where you get to charge the VCC via their 2-3 methods.

The virtual card method usually needs to be requested after sign up.

 

There is a special signup for booking.com members. Can also be used for Expedia etc..

They take BdC sign up via : https://sumup.ie/bookingie/

The signup takes you through choosing a POS device for a one time fee and then register you. The device is shipped quickly and arrives within 7 days normally.

Hi! Shanoy, 

Even with option 1 you cannot avoid cancellations.

Making your policies more strict will help you.

Non-refundable rates  helps avoid cancellations although less reservations...but secure.

Wish you all the best.

in some cases the country location may have a waiting period before it available, reach out to your BdC support phone contact to see if there is such an option to optin.
