  1. It would help if pre-paid OTA reservations were automatically processed as prepayments in Mews.
    This would save manual work, avoid errors and prevents the guest accidentally paying twice for the reservation at check-in.

  2. Guest payment tab - improvement points:
    - Show if the payment went through 3D secure check so we know if we need to double check the credit card.
    - Chargebacks show currently very messy in the overview and no clear status if we submitted information already etc.to fight the chargeback.
    - Show all refusal reasons and what action to take. Is the issue on the MEWS side or on the guest side and they need to contact their bank? Sometimes refusal reasons are not clear. E.g. “transaction was declined ()” is this always a system issue between MEWS and Adyen? …

  3. Hello, we need to be able to do refunds on a credit card, sometimes higher than the amount paid, in case of complaints and original payment is done via an agent. We sometimes need to give the guest a quick solution. With other payment providers this is optionable but with Stripe this doesn't work.
    Preferably processed after Accounting approval only.

  4. Pour déclarer une carte invalide sur un OTA il faut donner les 4 derniers chiffres de la carte. Mews n'en montre que 3 pour une amex. Il serait judicieux de modifier vos paramétrages pour que nous puissions en voir 4.

  5. Possibility to send out e-invoice direct to government bodies

    In NL most government bodies require the hotel(s) and businesses they work with to e-invoice them. this method is basically a XML formatted invoice send to their systems including various fields that automatically recognize details and expedite payment.

    As usual, government bodies are fast paying parties (..) and hence we want to make the process and time spent to send in their invoices as short as possible.

    This is a regulation from the EU; https://eur-lex.europa.eu/legal-content/NL/TXT/?uri=CELEX:32014L0055

    Now we are exporting the PDF, uploading it in a system and adding several fields there…

    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.


    Thank you for sharing your suggestions.

  7. Create a payment page in just a few clicks and share the link with our guests. This development would allow us to share the link in email, text message, web chat and WhatsApp private conversations with our guests. We should be able to choose between debit or pre-authorization.

  8. We suddenly see cc payments coming through as "verifying" and in a high number too. this causes huge confusion for the guests and often frustration as well as they have to wait for codes from the bank which don't always come through immediately. A lot of guests think we are charging them twice and complain about the procedure.
    we are therefore more and more steering away from using Mews payments and charging through the pdq machine instead.
    any reason why this has changed?

    Hi team,


    Thanks for your feedback.

    The reason for that is PSD2 - European regulation that aims to protect fraudulent transactions by imposing additional customer authentication. Across Europe, not every bank has this imposed yet. 


    Mews built support for this requirement back in 2019, also we've optimized authentications through our own booking channels as well - sharing with you a bit more information in this guide.


    Hope that clarifies.


    Best regards,

    Mews Team

  9. 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…

  10. 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. When the payments confirm in Mews after charging thru the integrated PDQ it refreshes all open tabs, which is extremely frustrating.
    For example, you are writing notes in a reservation and a payment confirms, the page will be reset and you need start again. 2nd example, the timeline is open on another tab, payment confirms, the timeline resets back to the top.
    Would be good that everything does not reset each time a payment goes thru.

  15. Many hotels are asking for multiple payment methods (like PayPay, Ideal, Sofort).

    Why not interface with MOLLIE?!

    A payment platform that integrates all of these payment methods (+ many more) for a relatively low monthly fee plus transaction fees.

    (For example Ideal is expensive via Mews: 50 Euro(!!) per month for only using Ideal PLUS transaction fees of 0,45 cent (via Mollie 0,29 Cent)

    Check: https://www.mollie.com/en/payments for possible payment methods:
    - All major credit cards
    - Apple Pay
    - Ideal
    - Paypal
    - Klarna
    - Sepa
    - Bancontact
    - Cartes bancaires
    - Giropay
    - KBC payment
    - EPS
    - Belfius…

    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.


    We will be looking into adding new payment methods in the future, and I would appreciate more to hear out which ones will help you more than others in a separate payment method ideas!


    Thank you for sharing your suggestions.

  16. Most of our pre paid reservation guest uses the discover card for the incidental but as the mews does not support the discover card and we can use discover only to charge the guest at least bring pre authorization method on terminal so that if we want to authorize a discover card we can do it from the terminal

  17. In MEWS there is no option to separately map the google and apple pay in the accounting categories, so they show currently under the wrong GL account.

    Stripe is paying out apple and google pay, while in the setup in MEWS we are forced to have it mapped under Adyen GL.
    Since we directly receive payouts from Adyen & Stripe we need to be able to map these correctly.
    The payouts come from a different company, so you need to be able 1 on 1 reconcile it on the correct GLs.
    We received questions from our auditors, and this is…

    Thank you for your suggestion. Unfortunately, this request will not be added to the Mews development roadmap and is unlikely to be delivered as Apple and Google Pay a only a wallet payments that use Visa, Mastercard etc., that can be mapped with accounting categories.

  18. Currently EFTPOS(Electronic funds transfer at point of sale) is not an accepted payment method on the Mews Adyen Terminals.

    EFTPOS is a widely used payment method & is issued by Australian banks. EFTPOS cards are not compatible with visa/mastercard.

    Hi team,

    it is not possible to change the expiration of the authentication that the user performed. This is standard set by the card networks. However, the issuer (bank) can choose to send additional authentication, in case they would like to. Also, the authentication period is usually set for 90 days for some cards, defined under the PSD2 & SCA rules.


    Many thanks for your idea.

    Best,

    Product Teams
