How to enable Stripe/Webpay charges on the booking engine?
In order to be able to use Stripe or Webpay on the booking system, you need to use the monthly fixed fee option of the booking engine. If you are interested contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In order to enable online payments on the booking engine, go to Property Settings / Booking Engine / Payments and Rates, click on Enable button and choose the option you are interested in.
Below you will see a table where you can activate the rares you want to use on the booking engine and decide how what percentage you want to charge in advance in case of each rate.
On the example below we can see that in the case of the non-refundable rate the system will charge 100% of the total amount and in the case of Standard rate, it won't charge anything.
If the guest chooses the option with prepayments, the system will show the amount to pay and after clicking on Pay now button, a Stripe window will appear:
While the guest is in the booking process in the system you can see a booking with In progress status.
Once the payment is completed, the booking is saved and the transaction appears in the reservation.
Please note that in case of unsuccessful payment the booking can stay as In progress for maximum of 10 minutes and then it will disappear.
For Stripe only: In case of rates which does not require charging in advance, like our Standard rate on the example above, you can gather the credit card details as well and charge the guest later. In this case, the system will show the same window, will ask for the details, but they will be just saved on Stripe and later you can charge the guest directly from the system if needed. In case of Webpay this option is not available.
