Payments

Hello I'm considering joining this platform but I'd like to make some things clear. I see that I can make guests pay in cash in my local currency and I do not need no card reader, correct? I can opt for only online payments too. The issue is that I'd like to change the currency of my country and use a foreign bank. Is this possible?  What about Paypal, how can I use this to accept guest payments? Thank you!

Correct.

If you opt for online payments, you need a card reader or a third party that can charge credit cards.

You can not use a foreign bank. 

Guest can pay by PayPal, bank transfer, CC,... only if you have activated "Payments by Booking.com" (you receive payouts to your bank account) or "Online payments by Booking.com" (by charging BDC virtual card).

Thank you for the info Can I exclusively accept only cash?

Yes, under policies (Guest payment options) you can mark the payment method - cash only.

This is quite confusing... but where do I set up the cash only option?

Extranet -> Property -> Policies -> Other Policies -> Guest Payment options

 

I also think if you just joined BDC the payment method is cash by default.
