  1. Automatic settlement is a great tool for automating payment collection from guests, however it is not currently possible to apply more than one settlement rule. Properties may rather prefer to add several rules that work together for a custom payment scheme. For example, take 20% of payment upon creation, 30% one week before arrival, and the remaining 50% on the reservation start date.

    Hi there Mewsers!

    You have asked and we’ve listened!

    I am happy to share the news that we have started to work on adding more flexibility to automated payments!

    Our focus is to add more payment settlement rules that will reduce the manual time spent on payment processing and increase the flexibility around charging that your guests will love!

    Let me know if you’re interested in having beta access to this incredible idea!

    Best,

  2. People are using the same credit card for different profiles (fraudulent bookings). We want to blacklist a credit card.

  3. 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,

  4. Many properties prefer to take payment card details at check-in but to then charge all accommodation fees at the time of checkout. Therefore, it is very important that these card details are accurately and securely stored. With the capability to automatically transfer card details to customer profile, properties can help reduce human error and also ensure that guests feel their information is protected.

    Hi all,

    Thanks to the current feedback, we decided to move back this idea to be upvoted.

    We did release Mews Terminals, however, due to security reasons, we will not store that card for future use.

    Most of the upvotes mentioned that they’d like that functionality – even though the current Mews terminal is a huge step towards automation – providing the possibility to charge or pre-authorize a card without the need to ask a guest to give you card details & where you’d need to type in manually back information to Mews…

    Looking forward to hearing more about this!

  5. 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,

    Hello from the Mews product team.


    Unfortunately, this request has not received the necessary upvotes to be added to the Mews development roadmap and is unlikely to be delivered in soon future, however you can still upvote the idea that might be re-preoritized in future.

  7. For chains, it is helpful that customer profiles are shared between properties, however some of that data is not always included. Payment card information would be especially helpful to include in shared profiles, as it will keep records more complete and prevent properties for asking guests each time.

  8. 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

  9. Since credit card fees are often inevitable, you could eliminate some of these costs by including an extra percentage cost for customers who choose to pay by card. One solution is to extend your Merchant with automatic credit card surcharge fees, which would cover the cost of any extra unwanted fees and help manage your property's revenue goals.

    Hi All,
    Happy to announce that surcharging is released in Australia and New Zealand, now you can set up fees by yourself and recover expensive payment card costs!
    Looking forward to hearing from you at some other idea!

  10. 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.

  11. 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…

  12. we have had several complaints from guests who received an email notification when we took payments from an OTA vcc. This is completely unacceptable not only because it creates anxiety with the guest, it also now shows them the real cost of their stay!
    yes, the cc number is not their own, but they should not receive the notification at all.
    there is no way to add the vcc to the PayMaster as our bookings come in via a channel manager and are thus showing on the reservation.
    Please investigate and fix or alert us how to prevent this from…

  13. All automatically processed preauthorizations are recorded within the payments section of the customer profile. However, as part of the current transaction state, it is not visible in case a preauthorzation was not successful in logs and not possible to distinguish failed payments email from failed preauthorization one.

  14. 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,

    Even though the idea was released, due to some technical difficulties, we have stopped working with this type of service. But we will provide a new solution very soon!

  16. To mitigate against fraudulent card use and the risk of chargebacks, enabling AVS through the payment gateway would go some way to controlling this at the processing stage. By capturing the home address the payment process would compare this against the account address it has on file and based on fraud rules decline or refer.

    Additionally, this would be required within the Payment Link process (Adyen platform has this enabled on its direct platform) so request for Mews to align with Adyen on this.

    Considerable Commercial impact if accepted....

  17. 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).

  19. Currently, only online payments should marked in Mews with a badge, however for properties that prefer manual terminal payments, it seems that any payments with a matching identifier appear in a confusing way, as they are then marked with a badge. For this reason, it could be very beneficial to create a more noticeable way to distinguish these two types of payment in Mews.

  20. Mews Payments doesn't currently support terminals in Canada. This prevents properties in Canada to have a fully automated solution that can be supported with card readers and makes Mews less competitive in North American market given the number of properties that operate both in the US and in Canada.
