If you use the Stripe payment solution and also receive bookings from booking channels via Sirvoy, credit card details will automatically be stored in Stripe. The card can then be charged as usual from the booking details page in Sirvoy.
For this to work, you may need to enable “Process payments unsafely” in your Stripe account (https://dashboard.stripe.com/account/integration/settings
). This is not as bad as it sounds – it only means that Stripe will not be the sole service provider involved in handling your card details. Sirvoy is a fully PCI compliant service provider. As long as your hotel only is using PCI compliant third-party service providers, your own PCI compliance will not be affected.
Please be aware of the following:
- For this feature to work properly, you must ask the booking channel to always include the CVV/CVC code.
- Stripe does a thorough security check and the card might be declined, even though the channel has accepted it.
- Virtual cards (at times used by Expedia and others) will likely be declined.
Warning: It is not possible to restore or review card details that were declined by Stripe. We recommend that you also receive credit card details via fax if you, for example, plan on using an alternative payment processor as backup.
