SmartCONNECT for Payment

SmartCONNECT for Payment ensures that hotel guests’ payments can be made quickly, securely and hospitably. With the click of a button, payments for online and offline bookings are automatically billed by the payment service provider and processed directly in the hotel’s Property Management System (PMS).

All your payments fully automated

Few things are more important to operate your hotel than your guests’ payments. Consequently, hotel owners will opt for a payment system that meets both the guest’s wishes and how they run their business. On the other hand, it is less common that the payment system integrates with the hotel’s PMS. As a result, the front desk staff have to process all payments manually. Other than being error-sensitive, this takes a lot of time and can be unsafe.

The SmartCONNECT platform ensures that hoteliers are independent of integrations between hotel software systems.SmartCONNECT’s latest addition (SmartCONNECT for Payment) provides hotel guests with fast, secure and hospitable payments between different systems. The hotel’s payment provider automatically charges for online and offline bookings and processes them directly into the PMS.

How does SmartCONNECT for Payment work?

SmartCONNECT for Payment is a payment automation system that you can set up according to personal preferences. This gives you full authority and flexibility about how, when and where to charge your guests’ bookings. For example, you can automatically and securely verify or charge (virtual) credit cards. You can also send out payment links to your guests before, during or after their stay at your hotel.

SmartCONNECT for Payment provides real-time payment information between hotel software systems, booking channels, sales tools and manual entry into the PMS. The PMS automatically receives payment status notification and associates guarantees or deposits from the payment provider with the reservation.
