The new "Payments by Booking.com" feature in South Africa
Hi fellow South Africans
It's my first post here, although we have been on booking.com since Feb 2014.
Like most of you I have also gotten tired of no-shows and last minute cancellations. We have up to last week only accepted 50% EFT deposits within 48 hours of booking, with balance on arrival - or then you go through the process of getting the booking cancelled, you know what I mean.We have three self catering cottages, so cancellations are a big pain for us.
We finally decided to go with Paybridge from Nightsbridge to be able to handle credit card payments and we are live on Paybridge now. Do any of you use it and how does it work for you, together with BDC?
I also noticed the new option "Payments by Booking.com" under the Finance tab in the extranet. Do any of you use it? I guess it is new, so I can not expect much commenary on how it works for you, but it would be interesting to hear your thoughts.
Thanks in advance, Henry
