Hi Can anyone help paying with this virtual credit card?
Why is rejected as invalid merchant?
What is the name that should be on the card Holder?
The booking.com is not clear on their video, really bad explanation how we put the name on the card holder (agent) what does it means?
Agreed the BdC info is not clear cut, and needs a redo, to update it.
So for any CC/VCC, you need to have a merchant account/service agreement with a payment gateway provider and a ePOS/ smart phone app or online portal where you can input the card info.
So the first question is who or what 3rd party did you sign up with for this service, if any?
The VCC are normally issued by the BdC system and are not the actual CC owned by the Guest.
The info is hidden until the day after the offical check-in arrival date, by 12 noon.
I did some digging on here and found this :
What to know about virtual credit cards (VCCs)
It covers alot of the common questions and scnearios.
VCCs are temporary, digital Mastercards that we use to pay you for bookings that your guests pay for on our platform. They function like regular credit cards and give you guaranteed payouts from us. They also save you time, since you don’t need to pre-authorise or validate them.

How virtual credit cards (VCCs) work
Here are a few things to keep in mind about how we’ll send you VCCs, how to charge them and how long they remain valid:
Once we activate the VCC, you can view the details in the extranet as many times as you like for 18 months (547 days) from the check-out date.
You have up to 365 days after the check-out date to charge the VCC. If you don’t charge it by then, the funds will belong to us. We’ll also email you a weekly summary showing any amounts you have remaining on VCCs.

How do VCCs work with cancellations, no-shows and modifications?
If there’s a cancellation, no-show or modification and you’re owed money, we’ll send you an email with updated VCC details that you can charge.
If you need to refund a guest for a booking that we’ve paid you for using a VCC, you’ll need to refund the same VCC that we provided you with. You can do this even if the VCC has expired – just enter the current month as the expiry date instead. We’ll return the money to your guest.
