  1. When sending one payment request we would like to ask consent of the guest to take another payment from the same card.
    This occurs for example when having reservations with multiple settlement rules.
    First payment link for 25% and the rest 75% a day before arrival.

  2. When the reservation is made with the channel "telephone" or "email"
    that mews sends the request to the bank as a MOTO transaction, to hopefully create more successful transactions, and ease the guest journey of guests booking directly over the phone or via email.

  3. Please, made sure that the date of product orders can be seen on the invoice. We have customers who stay several weeks and I have a large list of room service orders but the customer cannot navigate the bill. I have to print an extra document.

  4. 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

  6. 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

  7. Can it be possible for properties to customize their payout options with Ayden Marketpay? There are instances where due to daily payouts we are unable to provide a refund to a guest and need to use our other payment gateway provider.

    Hi everyone,

    We are always working towards having a faster payout schedule with our payment providers, so we would diminish any problem properties would have with their balances.

    Unfortunately, during Covid-19 – this might have changed. We would need to implement many changes to the system to be able to do this, I am interested how many of you would currently benefit from the idea?

    Thank you!

  8. Slowly the Chinese market is getting bigger and bigger for Dutch hotels. Not only in Amsterdam, but everywhere in the Netherlands. The most used payment solution are Wechatpay and Alipay. This will bring a great improvement in the guest experience.

  11. We should be able to finalize a guest's pre-authorization for the amount of their bill, even if it's more than the original pre-authorization. Mews forces you to charge the original amount, and then perform a second transaction for the remaining balance. This results in two charges on the guest bill, and leaves hotels vulnerable to chargebacks on the second transaction. It's not the standard practice for hotels in the U.S.

  12. Currently when adding a booking manually with credit card details, an 'automatic settlement failure' email is sent to guests despite card details being taken over the phone and the option to process payment manually in Commander. When creating manual bookings, we need to be able to turn off automatic settlement and take payment there and then.

  13. 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.

  15. 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

  16. Visible internal notes/tasks inside guests folio billing. So much wasted space. All that space can be used for notes or tasks. Me, personally, i live in billing and i am always there, if you ask me, its the most used window. So i would really love this idea come true. So that all internal notes or tasks about this reservation can be viewed inside billing. Just an idea which i would personally find very useful. Or at least something where we can leave the notes for our colleagues.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

    released  ·  Aneta responded

    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

  19. 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

  20. 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,
