I did try sending money to myself over Paypal (from one of my other accounts funded by a credit card) and then immediately refunded it. It seems on the surface that Paypal also refunded me the fees but it could be because the refund took place only a few minutes after the payment.
I have created an account on Payrexx (as suggested on another forum) and it allows me to create a payment link. I just need to work out how to automatically send that when a person books the place
Thanks for that. I presume I can send a link to a payment page to ask for the Damages Deposit. I know I am a new partner but I am not sure what it means my property is not verified since I am sure I received a verification letter by mail and I entered the code into my property record
I can certainly accept payments via credit card using say Paypal and my personalised payment address. But when I go to the payments page and add I require a damages deposit it says I can only do it via cash. I guess I could email the Paypal link to the customer and ask for a deposit but there is no way to enforce that. And I thought I did read on the board that you can actually cancel a reservation if the damages deposit is not paid but cannot now find that section.
How is it normally done?
I've given up for the moment. They have not been helpful at all. The strange thing is if I make all the dates in a month not available then the Booking calendar shows me my Airbnb bookings. But if I make the entire month available, then it shows every day as available, even the ones booked on Airbnb. So I've given up and block dates out manually.
Not sure what you did but I have tried several times to import my airBnB calendar and get the same import error. That means I cannot make my property available for fear of double booking. This is really annoying.
