  1. In the US, upon arrival the hotel puts hold (pre-authorizes) the guest card for certain amount/night (it's usually a flat rate). They keep the money on hold and when the guest exceeds their spending (restaurant, spa charges etc that they put on their room), the system should then pre-authorize additional amount. It's like credit the hotel holds for the spending of the guest during their stay.

    In other PMS systems you can program the amount either per day (i.e. $50.00 per day on top of the room & tax) or per stay flat rate (i.e. $150.00 per stay). Then, as…

  2. If a guest books as a prepaid rate, and has insufficient funds on their card, the booking will still go through. please prevent this from happening. or at the VERY least, allow bookings to be changed from Confirmed to Optional until we can contact the guest and arrange an additional payment method or do they can transfer funds to their account.

  3. We need to sometimes make payments in Mews for cash and manual credit card transactions, but after the stroke of midnight there doesn't seem to be anyway to back-date it to the date you actually want the payment to appear for accounting purposes, and by applying the payment to the new date this further complicates matters because now you're kind of balancing over two days, and in perpetuity!

    Could this please be rectified ASAP?

  4. Would be great if you could split invoices before issue the invoice. Sometimes guest only prepay a certain amount upfront or have different payment triggers. Would be great if you could enter a percentage or amount of the amount, which should be issued (e.g: 1) issue invoice 50% at the time of booking / 2) 50% a month prior to arrival)

  5. Would be good to have an icon or something on every booking on timeline that identifies to staff to clearly let them know if that booking is not paid up to date

  6. When a rate group is created and the Automatic Deposit Settlement is default in the US, this creates a revenue items for taxation purposes. This is not used in the US and should not be the default setting. The Option of "Automatic Deposit Settlement" is regionally specific and not global. I believe this "Option" should remain an Option and not the default. This really confusing properties that are setting up rate groups. See help guide on this topic: *Note for properties in the United States, Australia and New Zealand: Do not select this feature, as you are not legally required…

  8. could we please move the routing rules tab to somewhere more "logical" as it is often impossible to find.
    it should be either under profiles (as that is where you go to set up a company or travel agent), or be part of the set up of a company / travel agent.
    alternatively it should be under finance and showing when opening the finance tab from the burger menu.
    currently it takes about 5 minutes to find it and often by accident as i still don't know where it is actually located!

  9. Currently preauthorization holds expire after 7 days in Mews but no cancellation of hold is sent to credit card or bank. The credit card or bank determines when the authorization hold is released depending upon their own policies. If the property sends a cancel for preauthorization the system does send the release to the bank. Is there a way that when a guest checks out, Mews can send a cancel to release the preauthorization hold.

  10. 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.

    Hello,

    Thank you for your feedback. It is unlikely that we will be showing the commission fee on the bank statement. For that reason we introduced the split in the Merchant Balance report where you can see the payout amount, by expanding the payout identifier in this report, you will be able to see its breakdown.

    Also, we are currently working towards providing more information in the Merchant balance report export, where reconciliation with your bank’s payouts will be even easier!

    Kind regards,

    Jovana

  11. The email our guests receive state “ "We can't process your payment for Merlet until it has been verified. Unfortunately, if it's not verified in 24 hours, your order could be canceled" we think is is not very welcoming, especially in these challenging times. Is is possible to personalize or change this message?.

    Hi all, currently this email is not customizable. Would you maybe benefit from:

    1. Email being customizable
    2. Email to change the wording
    3. New solution where the guest will be able to e.g. swap a card or re-try payment attempt

    If your answer is under 3. please reach out to me and I can add you to the beta access of this feature. If not, happy to review other suggestions!

    Thanks,
    Product team

  12. Once a pre-authorization is done on a guest cc the guest gets an email notification that we took the pre-auth.
    At the moment the guest does not receive a notification once the authorization is released. This would be helpful, so the guest has something in hand that we released the authorization. This will also help them to claim back the money from their bank.

  13. We currently send out email Credit Card Authority forms or Charge Back forms to travel agents, guests, companies so they have to then fill out and return to us to grant authority to use credit cards when they are booking for somebody else like a client or a member of their company. It would be so helpful if this could be generated in MEWS and then enable hotels to receive payment details and authority directly as opposed to then needed to add the credit card in manually.

  14. 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

  15. Ability to print the Payment Report as it appears on the screen with the different payment type totals, rather than just a list of transactions as the print comes out at the moment. We use these totals as part of our daily banking procedures.

  16. Provide the option to charge a credit card of the booker / company .
    Due to 3D secure a "verfying mail" is only sent to the customer.
    Now we have to copy past bookers e-mail in customers profile and then take it out again.. and put it back in the bookers profile...

  17. When sending one payment request we would like to ask consent of the guest to take another payment from the same card.
    This occurs for example when having reservations with multiple settlement rules.
    First payment link for 25% and the rest 75% a day before arrival.

  18. When the reservation is made with the channel "telephone" or "email"
    that mews sends the request to the bank as a MOTO transaction, to hopefully create more successful transactions, and ease the guest journey of guests booking directly over the phone or via email.

  19. Please, made sure that the date of product orders can be seen on the invoice. We have customers who stay several weeks and I have a large list of room service orders but the customer cannot navigate the bill. I have to print an extra document.

  20. 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
