  1. We welcome guest that stay more than a week inside our properties. Preauthorizations get cancelled automatically after 7 days which creates an issue for us, in case of broken furnitures in the property or unpaid bills. For this purpose we should be able to create preauthorizations of more than 7 days.

    Hello everyone,

    Thanks for the feedback.

    The reason for us holding the 7 days preauthorization is because the usual time frame for holding a pre-authorization before either capture or releasing of the funds can range between 7-14 days from time of processing the pre-auth. Also, the time the pre-authorization is held prior to capture is up to the issuing bank to determine and it’s at the total discretion of the issuing bank, unfortunately.

    But I am moving the feedback to the level of the “idea to upvote” and keeping it open for any additional upvote, discussion, or add on you might have!

    Many thanks,
    Jovana

  2. It will be easier when the (Stripe) Merchant commision will be shown in the bank transaction/ payout. At this moment you need to check the fee in Mews (seperately for each property) when you proces a bank statement in the financial accounting systems.

  3. When a booking is made we would like to link it to the reservation the guest made the payment for. Now if a guest makes more bookings we can not see which bookings are paid yet. we can only see what the total amount is

  4. Accept Bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies as payments.

    There are some key benefits of Bitcoin, such as a lower cost merchant fee and an inability for guests to execute fraudulent chargebacks as outlined by QuickBooks:

  5. Option to enter amount that we want to assign as the credit limit for the payment method. And then have the option to report all guests whose current balance is greater than the credit limit assigned to the payment method.

    Would be great to receive an automated email from Mews when credit limit has been reached.

  6. Slowly the Chinese market is getting bigger and bigger for Dutch hotels. Not only in Amsterdam, but everywhere in the Netherlands. The most used payment solution are Wechatpay and Alipay. This will bring a great improvement in the guest experience.

  8. A creditcard machine connected to a PC will help to save time and faults at the front desk.
    When connected, all transactions on the credit card machine have to be generated in MEWS. So will be linked on a Product all the time.
    You generate automatically the right profit and charge the costumer for the right amount.

    Met een gekoppelde pin terminal aan de receptie PC scheelt dit tijd en voorkomt eventuele fouten bij de recepties.
    Als deze is gekoppeld worden alle transacties aangemaakt in MEWS. Dan zal er altijd een Product gekoppeld moeten worden. Zodat je de juiste omzet…

    Hello all!

    Happy to announce that we have launched Mews terminals! Check out this page https://www.mews.com/products/terminals if you want to know what they are all about!

    For pre-orders, you can also access Marketplace, a category named “Payments” and click “See pricing”, choose the type of device and it’s number, click on “Request” and our team will reach out to you! Happy to hear from you, and let us know if any questions arise!

    All the best from the Mews team.

  9. Currently, if hotels have to change Bank Accounts for their payouts, they need to go through a lengthy process with Support to get this done. If the option is available in Mews directly, we could do it with one click. Of course only finance or admins should have this permission.

  10. It would be very helpfull to have a option to send a secured payment link to guests or companies, this In order to avoid chargebacks and makes it easier for external companies or persons to pay someones reservation via credit/debit card. This also helps whenever a guest doesnt have the credit card of they room payment with him.
    Like this you fraude can be eliminated.

    Hi Mewsers!
    I am happy to announce that the payment request feature was released just now.
    Payment request is friendly and convenient way how to collect payments from your guests or bookers. The best thing about it is that you can send requests directly from Mews Commander. :-) Learn more about the feature in our Help guide: https://help.mews.com/en/articles/4245457-send-a-payment-request-by-email .

    Please let us know how do you like it and we are looking forward to your ideas for improvement here in feedback portal.

    Have a great day,
    Aneta

  11. At present in footer of all our bills we thank the guest and have also inserted bank account details for payment. This is used to be able to send invoices to companies and not have to write separately in e-mail. They can do copy and paste in their banking programs.
    Starting 2021, more and more the new European QR code with all payment information will be used. Is it possible to
    1. have an automated QR code be generated with all necessary information
    2. have this QR code printed on invoice in footer
    Thank you

  12. It would be nice to be able to correct a wrong input of payment by just being able to modify or delete it.

    Perhaps with a time limit of 24 hours or less.

    Hello,

    Thank you for providing feedback! Today I’m getting back to you on the idea about deleting payments and bills.

    As we are thriving in focusing on an easier and automated customer journey, unfortunately, it is unlikely that we can solve this problem. The reason is that, if the payment is already taken and sent out to our payment processors it is impossible to revert it without the actual additional trigger. We need to make sure that every action is correctly recorded and aligned with regulations. Also, closed bills cannot be deleted due to regulation as well that is not allowing correction of bills that are already closed – please see our help guide on how to modify bills https://help.mews.com/en/articles/4245422-correct-a-closed-bill

    Thanks a lot and hope to see you upvoting more and more ideas!

    Regards,
    Jovana

  13. Would like to have configuration to automatically round up and or down on settlement of a guest bill in multiples of 5, 10, 50 or 100 by payment type.

  14. When Mews automatically takes payment from credit card it will at the same time create debet and credit deposit transactions. Credit card payment will be closed with other transaction and other one stays open on the reservation with all the booked items. Would this be possible with all the manual payment types also? We need this feature for our book keeping to keep on track where the money comes from. And if these payments are not on closed bill it the will not be shown on the payment report as our accounting needs.

  15. iDEAL is an online payment solution with a direct online transfer from your bank account to the bank account of the Mews property. It is the most used payment method in the Netherlands.

    Hello Mewsers,

    Exciting news today!!

    Payments team has started preparing Mews for alternative payment methods. The first one in the line is iDEAL, the integration and development will take several months. On the other side, the implementation of iDEAL to guest-facing products will be worked on once we, payments teams, finish the integration.

    I hope you all are as excited as we are! I will update you once we move to the next stage!

    Kind regards,
    Jovana

  16. Visible internal notes/tasks inside guests folio billing. So much wasted space. All that space can be used for notes or tasks. Me, personally, i live in billing and i am always there, if you ask me, its the most used window. So i would really love this idea come true. So that all internal notes or tasks about this reservation can be viewed inside billing. Just an idea which i would personally find very useful. Or at least something where we can leave the notes for our colleagues.

  17. For Amsterdam Properties, the virtual Credit card amounts are for less than the full price since the guest needs to pay the 3 euro tourist tax upon arrival. I wonder if the automatic charging could read the amount imported under credit card information.

    Hi everyone,

    Unfortunately, there’s no way for us to distinguish amounts as the only information we get is through Channel Manager notes which means that we cannot read the amount, that’s why I need to move this idea to “unlikely”. However, this doesn’t mean that we won’t keep a close look at VCCs & OTAs improvements.

    I was trying to find out the way that this can be avoided. As that tax is paid when the guest arrives, what I can suggest is to create a new product, per person per night. Under options of that product, you can tick the box “exclude price from offer”, then create a product rule. After that, you can go to the rate group that you’d offer the product and just under “extent” – products should be unticked. What will happen in this case is that the product will be added to the billing…

  18. It would be great to set up other kind of external payments like TWINT or any other type that would be useful for the single properties for their statistics and checks.

  19. When a payment is successful, than the guest receives an e-mail to inform him. Many of them than request the invoice for that amount. Please also send the concerning invoice with the e-mail together.

  20. We would like to send a payment confirmation like the ones that are send when a guest paid with their creditcard. Because we also get external payments via our own website with ideal, sofort, wire transfer etc. These guests want to know if their payment has been recieved aswell.

    Hello,

    Thank you for the idea!

    Currently, it’s not possible to send a payment request for alternative payment methods. However, we would like to hear more about which payment methods do you miss from our payment requests feature. We are currently working on the development of alternative payment methods, and it will be very helpful to hear your interest.

    Many thanks!
    Jovana
