Online Payments - and pre-arrival deposits
Hi - Online payments seem promising - particuarly with the Euro SCA changes coming.
However, as setup by Booking.com, the online payments is incompatible with polices that booking.com allows you to set.
For example - booking allows a policy of collecting a damage deposit one week before arrival. This is IMPOSSIBLE with online payments...as booking.com does not provider you the ability to bill the VCC before the arrival date...and the amount on the VCC is for the rental only...you cannot include the damage deposit.
And if you have ONLINE payments enabled....booking does not share the customers credit-card info. So, you cannot "require a valid credit card for booking" and use "online payments"..
Seems a bit more work is required to make these offerings usable...(at least to me)
