1 Gelashvili313shady payment hello... I want to know , how can I take prepayment from guest if it's without credit card? thanks 3 Waikoninihomestead I would suggest that the guest should be asked to pay by pay pal or by internet banking with 24 hours and they do not you could cancel their booking. This is what booking.com advised me when I first joined up with them. But this was a hassle for me constantly having to go back and check if payment had come through or not. I now have a credit card facility so when a booking comes through the guest is charged right away. This has made things alot easier for me and guess what I have had no "no shows" since doing this! I had 4 guests last year who did not come for breakfast and when I went to check found they had gone during the night without paying. So having the credit card facility really helps. Good luck.
