    Hi Mewsers!

    We’re delighted to share the news that now you can configure Mews to let guests pay with iDEAL!

    To learn more and get started with iDEAL check out this guide – https://help.mews.com/en/articles/5179046-enable-ideal-as-an-alternative-payment-method.

    Once the above is done, your guests will see iDEAL as a payment method in the booking engine, payment requests & online check-out. You can take advantage of convenient, automated payment processing with a real-time overview and central reconciliation.

    Thank you for sharing and voting for this idea,

    Your Mews Team

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

    Hello,

    Thank you for the idea!

    Currently, it’s not possible to send a payment request for alternative payment methods. However, we would like to hear more about which payment methods do you miss from our payment requests feature. We are currently working on the development of alternative payment methods, and it will be very helpful to hear your interest.

    Many thanks!
    Jovana

  5. When a payment is successful, than the guest receives an e-mail to inform him. Many of them than request the invoice for that amount. Please also send the concerning invoice with the e-mail together.

  6. 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…

  7. Add additional External Payment Options:

    Loyalty Card and Gift Card for Chain Hotels

  8. 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

  9. I'd like to see the balance on the payment window. Include on "Amount" the default payment amount that could be modify if you're not charging the total amount at one time.

    Hello, Mewsers!

    Exciting news today!

    Apple Pay is a new payment method that your guests will be able to use to pay online in the future, we have started to work on its integration!

    Talk to you as soon as this idea is going to be available to everyone.

    Kind regards,
    Jovana

  11. When there is a VCC and guest's credit card on the booking, the accommodation payment that should be charged back to the VCC always seems to be charging the guest's credit card. To be able to assign different credit cards to different payments, or at least just VCC's would avoid a lot of overcharging of guests.

    Hi everyone,

    I’d like to hear more feedback on this one. Please post a comment of what problem you’re facing with charging VCCs and if you think that will be useful for you and your team.

    Thanks,
    Jovana

  12. When there's a failed automatic settlement, a task is put into MEWS. I would like different options just than a task, so I could for example also be notified by email. Also, I would like to change the settings for the desk (adjust the deadline and department for example)

  13. At times we have reservations from where at the moment of booking the credit card is valid, however it expires prior of their arrival.
    We cannot accept reservations with an expired credit card since we then cannot collect payment. For security reasons we also do not prefer to take cc over the phone or by email. Is there is a way that the guest can get a notification that when they book their stay with us, the credit card will expire prior of arrival and to use a different card.

  14. Mews sends automatically a charge mail to the mail address in the customer profile (for a physical card). But the card holder may be different e.g. a travel agency) and the customer is not supposed to knox the net price. Therefor it would be helpful to have a tick box on the charge screen: "Do not send charge mail to the client".

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

  16. 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).

    released  ·  Mews Product Team responded

    Hi all,

    Happy to announce that we released your idea! Now, emails will notify you that the 3DS payment has failed. Looking forward to hear more from you!

    Sincerely,
    Merchant Mews Team

  17. 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.

  18. 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

  19. 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.
