How to change guest payment method

Hi all,

I'm new to Booking.com and currently my property is not live yet as I'm still in the middle of deciding the rates that I want to charge the guests.

When registering my property, I choose that I cannot accept credit card, which means the guest can pay when they check-in or check-out. However, in the Extranet, it is stated that "You're Using Payments by Booking.com.". What does it mean? As from my understanding, Booking.com will collect the payment in my behalf, but I want to get the payment directly. How can I change this?

Is this related to restriction for not verifying my location yet? I have read about it somewhere.



Hmm first I'm hearing of such a scenario, as I've only see nthis Pay By bdC when you decide to dign up for it yourself. But even then it is not available to all.


I use it and strongly recommend it.
