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.
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.
- You may need to enable “Process payments unsafely” in your Stripe account (https://dashboard.stripe.com/account/integration/settings). This setting means that Stripe will not be the sole service provider involved in handling your card details, which enables Sirvoy’s handling of these. Sirvoy is a fully PCI compliant service provider. As long as your hotel is only using PCI compliant third-party service providers, your own PCI compliance will not be affected.
