Payment Gateways & Transaction Manager

Transaction Manager is an application designed to save credit card details in the RezEasy database. The transaction can then be processed using your existing merchant account or virtual credit card terminal. RezEasy Portal includes Transaction Manager within the package.

RezEasy Encrypts the data before storing it in the database. Users with access to financial data can log in and view or print card details.

Transaction Manager is available as one of the payment methods for bookings taken in the Portal. Typically you would use the program where you don't want to take an immediate payment for an online reservation and prefer to hold the card details as a guarantee against a no-show.

Payment Gateways

A Payment Gateway is a third party website that processes credit card payments and deposits the funds to your bank account. The entire transaction takes places on the payment gateway's website removing your requirement for obtaining PCI compliance. RezEasy is pre-configured for 37 payment gateways including popular systems like PayPal and Stripe.

How to Charge for Bookings?

Your choice is how you operate the Portal and the deal you make with property owners. Here are a couple of suggestions:

  • You take a percentage of each sale. In this scenario, you can set the deposit on a reservation so that it is equal to your commission. You don't have to worry about sending payments or invoices to property owners by doing this. You allow the guest to pay the balance once they arrive at the hotel.
  • All property owners take payments and use the same Payment System (PayPal is ideal). You can then either charge property owners a monthly or annual fee for using the Portal or invoice them for your share of the booking.

PCI Compliance

When you accept credit cards directly on your website, the site must be PCI compliant. RezEasy stores encrypted card data; however, you must ensure that the RezEasy application is secure by using strong passwords. Only authorized personnel should be able to access credit card details. We strongly recommend that you delete card details from the database after you have processed a transaction.

Payment gateways are third party websites, and they are responsible for PCI compliance because they record credit card details.
