Accept payments through a choice of secure payment gateways (Paypal, SagePay, Barclaycard EPDQ, RBS WorldPay), plus BACS and cheque options.
PayPal is the simplest online gateway to set up as it does not require a merchant account. The account is free to open and there are no maintenance charges. You will have to pay commission to PayPal for payments processed. PayPal transfers payments to your nominated bank or building society account.
24:7Booking has been integrated with Sagepay.com so you can accept payments online or by telephone. You will need to apply for an E-commerce Merchant ID for online payments and a Moto Merchant ID for telephone/mail order payments. This process can take a while to complete.
24:7Booking can integrate other payment gateways as required. Please contact us for details regarding your payment gateway provider.
The payment gateway providers above comply with PCI DSS requirements. Payment gateway providers process, store and ensure the security of your customers' debit and credit card details when receiving customer payments or making refunds. Their websites provide comprehensive information about how PCI DSS compliance relates to your business and what you will need to do depending on your type and size of business.
Internet banking transfers are becoming popular in the UK and on the continent. For UK customers you only need to quote your Sort Code and Account Number. The UK "Faster Payments" system now allows your customers to send a deposit quickly by online bank transfer so, if their bank or building society has signed up to the scheme (most have), payments appear within hours in your own online account. Normally no fees are charged.
If you wish to accept payments from other European countries or worldwide, your account IBAN number will be needed. An IBAN (International Bank Account Number) is a series of alphanumeric characters that uniquely identifies a bank account held anywhere in the world (see the example to the left).
As well as or instead of internet banking, you can also configure 24:7Booking to accept cheques as payment.
