  1. 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.

  2. 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,

  3. 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,

  4. 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,

  5. 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.

  6. WE HAVE LOST 3 GUEST THEY DID NOT HAD ANY OTHER CARD THAN THE DISCOVER TO PAY FOR THE ROOM...

    THE SYSTEM DOES NOT ALLOW US TO USED FEW TYPES OF CARD AND WHEN I HAD A WORD WITH THE REPRESENTATIVE THEY TOLD ME TO ODER AN TERMINAL THAT WILL HELP TO ADD THOSE CARD!!!

    SERIOUSLY TO ENTER CARD DETAIL WHICH DOESN'T ACCEPT THE MANUAL ENTRY THEY WILL BE ACCEPTED MY TERMINAL....

    IT SHOULD THEN COME IN A PACKAGE WHERE YOU RENT THE SYSTEM AND THE TERMINAL...

    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

  7. 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

  8. 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.

    Hello,

    Thank you for your feedback.

    It is unlikely that we will be working on creating new report, however currently there is a way to check credit limit of the pre-authorized amounts for guests that are staying at the hotel. And that is, the Guest-in-house report. Sharing the read about it, in order to see the balances, in display options tick off the box “Balance” (https://help.mews.com/s/article/guests-in-house-report?language=en_US).

    I am more curious what would help you to enhance that report. Feel free to drop a comment or create a new idea of the current problem you’re facing while using the aforementioned report.

    Kind regards,

    Jovana

  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. 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.

  11. 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

  12. 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.

  13. 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

  17. 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.

    Hi all,


    In case you've missed the update based on your feedback, now Mews releases all automatically preauthorized payments 24 hours after guests leave, providing enough time to deduct any damages or incidentals if necessary, and saving staff from the hassle of manual releases.



    Additionally, when you manually create a new preauthorization for online payments and through your Mews terminal you can now select a specific expiration date up to 28 days later.

    Read this guide to learn more about payment automation with Mews.


    One more update is in the works - that's updating the pre-authorization amount! 


    Speak soon about that,

    Mews Product Team

  18. Automatic refund when clients declare it's a fraud in their bank.
    Of course there are some mistakes but we should have the right to prove that it was an error or not and the system automaticly sends the money without any heads up or information.
    If every person does that we will lose a lot of revenue and we can't even argue since its automatic.

    Hello,

    Thank you for your feedback. It is unlikely that we will be introducing new payment gateway in a near future.

    We are more interested in the items that you’re currently missing in Mews Payments that we can improve & make your daily life better. I am keen on hearing it! Feel free to drop a comment or creating a new idea.

  20. Please develop auto-fill totals for creating pre-authorizations. Right now, if a guest was to extend or modify their reservation in any way, Mews requires you to literally use a calculator to add up the current authorization(s) and subtract it from what is the new total. This get's really messy when these changes happen multiple times. Having that amount needed field auto-filled would be more accurate, and time effective.
