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.
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,
Would be handy to add an option to pay via Ideal for our Dutch guests, and not just credit cards.
Also adding the option to select which email we send the payment request to instead of automatically the one in guests profile.
Add to previous comment: eg. the same way as task is created for manual settlement rule.
Please add to the expired payment request automatically the reservation that it's connected to or at least the confirmation number of the reservation.
Could the payment requests to be linked to the certain stays (eg. identified with ref number)?
Hey, Great feature, how we can determine to which email address we can send the payment requests? Some cases, the requests are needed to be sent to booker.
Great news! Also is there an option to send the message to booker in case of company/TA booking?
Also - could offer a 'pay for existing reservation' link in distributor so if guests don't want to click a link on email (due to phishing potential) they can head to hotel website, open distributor and add a payment to an existing booking using the confirmation number & surname... COuld then eable hotels to offer a 'prepaid by installment' option. (nick.ellis)
For phone bookings, Send a link attached to a booking so you don't have to ask for the credit card details on the phone.
