Alternative Payment Methods in Distributor
Many clients have chosen to enable several payment types as part of their daily operations. For this reason, they would also like to allow guests to pay using the same list of accepted payment methods when booking online via Mews Distributor and also on site at the property.
We are so pleased to let you know that iDEAL is now available as the first alternative payment method in our booking engine. And we don’t plan to stop here. :-) We are currently discovering other payment options. Stay tuned!
Do you want to activate iDEAL? Then follow this guide: https://help.mews.com/en/articles/5179046-enable-ideal-as-an-alternative-payment-method.
Once the above is done, your guests will see iDEAL as a payment method in the booking engine, payment requests & online check-out. You can take advantage of convenient, automated payment processing with a real-time overview and central reconciliation.
Thank you for sharing your opinion and voting for this idea,
Your Mews Team

Yes, a big thing! Paypal, Sofortüberweisung please! Since beginning of the year and the new regulation we have a 20% drop out in credit card payments where the card is not set up by the guest or is not accepted... This is really a now go...

All the usual payment methods, like PayPal(!!!), Paynow(bank transfer) or even Alipay etc, should be activated

We have 9 hotels situated the Belgian coast. A lot of people prefer to pay via Bancontact in stead of Visa / Master Card. A lot of guests even can't book because they don't have a credit card. Maybe making a bank transfer via bank app would work great as well.

Our hotels are located in the Netherlands and we really rely on Dutch, Belgium and especially German guests. Therefore iDeal, Sofort and Bancontact.

An integration with ie Klarna would be great. Guest could choose pay later with bill or instant bank transfer there, but the payment collection is moved from the property to the payment provider. This would allow guests who do not have a credit card to book directly with the distributor on our website, without asking us if payment by bank transfer was possible.

Maybe even add an "pay now/in advance" option for the guest?
