Hi, just wondering if I deactivate the online payment, how do I collect the money from guest? Will they be notified to pay by cash, or where do I state this? Thanks! Peter

The payment options Peter, are all depending on your settings. 

How you receive money is depending on what you have available. 

There are different systems all over the world. 

Check what is possible in your country. 

Here in New Zealand, I have an  Eftpos machine at home. 

It is possible for people to book and I charge them here at home straight after the booking. (to prevent cancellation) 


Or they pay with a credit card here on arrival, all depending on the kind of booking they have. 

Short notice booking they normally pay here. People that book long time before staying can also pay Booking dot com and they give me a series of numbers that I type in my device to get the payment. 

Since I have the device here BookingDcom doesn't take 100% of guests' payments anymore. 

BDC prefers for hosts to have their own device to receive payments, but this is not possible for everyone. Depending on where you live. 


Hope this helps.

Hi Ella,

I am one that cannot have a POS machine.

Do you prefer charging cards through your card machine or do you thing Payments by Booking.com are more easy...
