Access Customer’s Credit Card Information from FlatsWire
How to access securely to your customer’s credit card details when you have not opted for an automatic Payment System Provider.
If you have not opted for a solution enabling you to automatically process the payment from Booking (Stripe, Braintree or other), you will have to manually make the payment with your payment provider. FlatsWire enables you to access securely to these informations sent by Booking.com. This will require the use an app on your smart phone.
(Please note that in this case, FlatsWire does not automatically check the validity of the card).
We assume the Channel Manager has registered a booking from Booking.com and set it in a “Hold” Status in the Back-Office. Opening the booking, you will notice under the status, a “Show card” button. It will enable you to access to the card details.
Step 1: Install “Google Authenticator” on your smart phone (iphone or Android or…) :
Step 2: Link your smart phone account on Google authenticator to the FlatsWire system.
- In your Phone settings, authorize Authenticator to access the camera,
- Open the app and launch the set-up. Select “Scan bar-code”.
- In your manager Back-Office, go to “settings/MFA”, then click on “Generate a new QR-code”
- A QR-code will appear under the above button,
- Scan this code with the phone.
- You should receive a confirmation that the app is now linked to your account in FlatsWire,
Step 3 : Open the Booking.com reservation and click on “Show Card”.
A pop-up appears asking you to enter the code provided by Authenticator (beware a code is only valid about 20 sec).The credit card details will be displayed during 25 sec.
You may access this infos as many times as necessary with the same procedure.
