  1. 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

  2. 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.

  3. 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

  4. 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

    Hello everyone,

    Thank you for submitting the idea. As long this is another great idea, unfortunately, this is not something we have planned to work on in the nearest future due to us focusing on different priorities – such as: adding new alternative payment methods.

    You can still upvote, submit or comment on the idea and we can any time get back and have a discussion around it.

    Looking forward to hearing more suggestions!

    Best,
    Jovana

  5. 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.

    Hello,

    Thank you for your feedback!
    It is unlikely that we will be working towards automating manual deposits payments, for this reason we have automatic settlement and automatic deposit closure, as you have mentioned which can be configured on the rate group level, and thereafter matched with rates you’re offering to your clients.

    Kind regards,

    Jovana

  6. 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.

    Hi Mewsers!

    We’re delighted to share the news that now you can configure Mews to let guests pay with iDEAL!

    To learn more and get started with iDEAL check out 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 and voting for this idea,

    Your Mews Team

  7. For Mews terminal it would be nice to have the customer receipt data for successful payment printed on customer invoice.
    This could be useful as we would not have to staple the terminal statement to the bill anymore.

  8. 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.

  9. 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…

  10. Add additional External Payment Options:

  11. When there's a failed automatic settlement, a task is put into MEWS. I would like different options just than a task, so I could for example also be notified by email. Also, I would like to change the settings for the desk (adjust the deadline and department for example)

  12. the mews does not allow us to get discover card or jcb card while making the reservation but it does gives you the option to find the reservation which had made payment using the discover card or the jcb card?
    i mean how and why this makes the procedure more slow and sometimes guest they need to run to get cash.

    Hello team,

    Thanks for creating this idea!

    We have enabled Discover and JCB for terminal payments, moreover, we have enabled same payment methods for the US market. Due to the limitation of our current payment providers (Stripe), we cannot enable the above-mentioned payment methods in the EU but on the other side, we have recorded your request to our partners and your AM will reach out to you for any further update.

    If you’d have any other specific request, feel free to create the additional idea.

    Many thanks,
    Jovana

  13. I'd like to see the balance on the payment window. Include on "Amount" the default payment amount that could be modify if you're not charging the total amount at one time.

    Hello Kaushal Rawal,

    Thank you for providing the feedback to our platform.

    Apologies for causing any confusion, but as I see you’re US-based account, we do accept JCB, Diners, Discover Club, China Union Pay both online and offline (terminal). Please reach out to your Account Manager and he/she will review your contract and will take a look at what needs to be setup on our side, so you can start accepting mentioned card brands. For integrated terminals with Mews, you can also take a look into this webpage – https://www.mews.com/products/terminals.

    Thanks again a looking forward to hearing your ideas in future!

    Regards,
    Jovana

    Hi Mewsers,

    Delighted to share that we’ve enabled not just Apple Pay, but also Google Pay in Mews!

    Now you can provide your guests a seamless payment experience in the Mews Booking Engine, in online guest services, and on payment requests. Read more about in our guide – https://help.mews.com/en/articles/5295473-apple-pay-and-google-pay-in-mews

    Looking forward to talking to you about the new ideas in the future!

    Regards,
    Jovana

  16. When there is a VCC and guest's credit card on the booking, the accommodation payment that should be charged back to the VCC always seems to be charging the guest's credit card. To be able to assign different credit cards to different payments, or at least just VCC's would avoid a lot of overcharging of guests.

    Hello from the Mews product team.  


    Unfortunately, this request has not received the necessary upvotes to be added to the Mews development roadmap.


    If the reservation is made with a VCC, VCC is being attached to the reservation, Mews is using that card for the purpose of the reservation as that's the prefered payment method added by the guest, however, if the rate is set to manual and the guest adds new payment method, it's up to front office agents to choose which card is more relevant. However, with VCC, the guest has already paid on the OTA's side, which is the reason this idea brings some additional difficulty and may drive more user mistakes.


    Thank you for sharing your suggestions.

  17. At times we have reservations from where at the moment of booking the credit card is valid, however it expires prior of their arrival.
    We cannot accept reservations with an expired credit card since we then cannot collect payment. For security reasons we also do not prefer to take cc over the phone or by email. Is there is a way that the guest can get a notification that when they book their stay with us, the credit card will expire prior of arrival and to use a different card.

  19. When a guest enters new credit card details (for example because we couldn't charge their credit card and asked them to provide another one), it would be helpful if MEWS gave us a notification. We now manually have to check if new details were entered.

  20. With the possibility of 3D secure payments failing, there is a chance this payment is missed and not followed-up.
    It would therefore be convenient to receive a notifcation e-mail of failed 3D secure payments. Alternatively, a task could be set (automated).
