Easy for the provider
PayToStay provides participating accommodation merchants with a secure e-commerce facility that makes it possible to accept credit card payments over the Internet from virtually anywhere in the world. These payments may be for deposits for reservations or settling the whole account.
Because guests can effect payment to you the merchant by means of PayToStay from the safety of their own homes using their personal computers -- or any other Internet-connected computer, if they should choose to do so -- they are saved the aggravation, time and expense of physically going through the normal process of sending cheques, money orders, etc., by post. And, naturally, the fewer hassles your guests experience, the better the relationship between you and your guests will develop.
Merchants are advised via email as soon as payment is received from a guest and the guest is likewise also sent an email confirming his or her payment.
Payments received from guests are transferred electronically to merchants' bank accounts on a weekly basis.
