Alternative Payment Methods in Distributor
Many clients have chosen to enable several payment types as part of their daily operations. For this reason, they would also like to allow guests to pay using the same list of accepted payment methods when booking online via Mews Distributor and also on site at the property.

And payment methods such as Ideal, google and apple pay should always be offered not only for prepaid rates.
If the guest books a flexible rate they still should have the option to prepay via ideal.
Current when you setup your booking engine to always require prepayment it shows all the payment methods such ideal however you need to pay with Credit Card.

Yes, a big thing! Paypal, Sofortüberweisung please! Since beginning of the year and the new regulation we have a 20% drop out in credit card payments where the card is not set up by the guest or is not accepted... This is really a now go...

All the usual payment methods, like PayPal(!!!), Paynow(bank transfer) or even Alipay etc, should be activated

We have 9 hotels situated the Belgian coast. A lot of people prefer to pay via Bancontact in stead of Visa / Master Card. A lot of guests even can't book because they don't have a credit card. Maybe making a bank transfer via bank app would work great as well.

Our hotels are located in the Netherlands and we really rely on Dutch, Belgium and especially German guests. Therefore iDeal, Sofort and Bancontact.

An integration with ie Klarna would be great. Guest could choose pay later with bill or instant bank transfer there, but the payment collection is moved from the property to the payment provider. This would allow guests who do not have a credit card to book directly with the distributor on our website, without asking us if payment by bank transfer was possible.

Maybe even add an "pay now/in advance" option for the guest?
