    Forgive me if this has been asked/answered.

    We do not charge deposits upon reservation, but we do take credit cards as security for no-shows.

    How do we capture/access the credit card info in the event we need to charge for a no-show?

    Thank you!

    Hello Nicky,

    I would highly appreciate if you clarify this payment method more detailed? How it works exactly and what information you would like to store?
    Probably you would like to use confirmation mode that is called by admin manually? You will be able to sent automatic email after reservation with your instructions and control all bookings manually.

    Best regards,
    John

    Hi John

    As an extension to what Nicky is referring to, AirBnB & Homeaway do this with their non online bookings, CC details are taken, and the property owner has 24hrs to vet the booking and then accept it, in which case then the CC is charged. This would be a fantastic feature on the Booking Plugin

    Hi Chris,

    Thank you for your comment however I’m not still sure I got how it should work. Is there a solution for this in WooCommerce? If so you can try using our WooCommerce addon that integrates payments gateways from WooCommerce.

    Best regards,
    John

    I might assume they would be looking for a way to be able to “capture” payment information so they would manually enter charges manually into a card swipe reader when they do not have an Online Gateway setup.

    I have seen this in other applications as Manual Entry. The first 8 digits of card info, expiration date was saved online with the transaction and the last 4 digits of card were emailed to system admin.

    Thank you Chris,
    It would be useful to see some live example of such a payment method on WordPress.

    I would like this to be an option also. I have had to start collecting deposits and it is more work than I wanted.

    Hi Amy,

    Thanks for your feedback. You may look if there is a payment gateway for WooCommerce that meets your requirements. If you find one you may integrate it to Hotel booking plugin using HB WooCommerce Payment addon.
    As another solution, you may use Checkout Field Editor addon to capture additional information. However, I do not think it is secure enough to keep the details of the credit cards in the database.

    best regards,
