How to charge virtual card

Hello, I made my first rent through booking.com and I send the site a message because I couldn't understand how the guest paid.

The answer was "The reservation was paid through booking.com so all you have to do is charge the virtual card."

Now, what is this virtual card? How do I charge it?

I've found one post that says "Ask your bank for an off-line capable credit card machine. If you cannot have one (bank rules are different country to country and bank to bank) then you cannot take virtual cards yourself."

But I couldn't understand about asking my bank something? What's an offline capable credit card machine? What if I can't have one, I won't receive the payment? Shouldn't the transation be made by the site?

Is there someway I can stop receiving payments by virtual card?

Dear Lala,

First of all, all properties on BDC should be businesses, second, being a business gives you the possibility to have a POS machine.

Now, POS machines can charge the Virtual Cards, if the bank has such technology for their POS.

If not, you need to get the cards processed by a third party, like us. We offer Virtual Card processing for partners.

So if you cannot do the above option with the bank or it's too costly for you, then you can apply for our services.

Just simply contact me via our website and I'll get back to you with details.

Warm regards,
