There should be way to process the authorization that was already made on the card to be processed to a complete charge while checking in the guest using the terminal where the preauthorization is sent to the terminal and guest will make sure it is the right amount and enter there pin if it is a debit card or enter the zip code for credit card or any other way so that there can be less chance for any guest to add a charge back case something like that as it will make sure the guest used the card by themselves.
We already have a possibility to process an authorization on our Mews Terminal - feel free to look into our guides for more info! Or just contact your account manager to provide more details around Mews Terminal.
this is a good idea.
Mews should make it possible to transfer the pre authorization to the terminal and complete the guest payment while checking in and on the terminal guest accepts the amount and verify the card with the either pin or the zip code to avoid future charge back but for check in that is how it should be done.
