Payment System for Self-Catering Owners

However, an opportunity to Maximise Revenue and take payments has been made easy with a selection of payment solution RMS provide.    RMS has put this special offer together for our Members.

Considerations for a Payment System

You can have a Management system, or a Marketing company and take payments directly as well, depending on the links on your website. Note – the Booking link you use will affect how you get payments and bookings

A Management System – management systems such as Supercontol to manage your booking and payment system. This is very useful if you have multiple properties to manage. 

 A Marketing Company – Get a Portal such as Airbnb, VBRO, or Booking .com to take payments. These companies charge the customer and most will also charge the property owners for the service – which may be a total of 20% more expensive for the customer 

Stripe Only – Choose to manage payments using Stripe at 3.95% on all payments.

 Payments with an App -Choose to take payments with the help of an App – using Stripe and a system Splink  (link) which will take payments and make refunds. Both systems will take over 3% for the service adding up to over 6.5% from your earnings.
